Just wondered how everyone was doing. Tomorrow would be 30 days for me but it's not. Friday I started feeling bad and I was thinking that I had a bladder infection. Since I had an appointment with the dr Thursday I decided to wait to save a little money, I don't have insurance. Woke up in the middle of the night on Monday thinking I was dying. Finally after a while I couldn't stand the pain and I called someone and spent the rest of the day loaded. Went to the doctor yesterday morning and my kidneys are infected. The worst pain in the world, I think. She gave my Vicoden but my husband has it. The pain is so bad I want something but I know if I have the pills, they will be gone before he comes home from work. I know I'm not abusing them with my husband having them but I want my clean time to be just that. So when the pain is gone and I'm not taking anything, then I will start my clean time again.
Hope everyone is ok and have a great day.

19 days, 13 hours and 14 minutes for me. This is not an easy thing to do and I'm real glad to see all of you keep on trying even if you fall down.

Just take it MOMENT BY MOMENT if you have to.

Praying for us all...

Morning all. (((Hope))) Hang in there, you can do it. Just be strong. Are you taking in any meetings of any sort? I'm hitting at least five a week, both AA and NA. Today is 21 days for me and I know, for me at least, there is no way I could have done that without the support I get at the meetings and from this site. ((SR))

((Invisible)) A plan is good, how's it coming along?? Weekends are tough, I mean, that's the epitomy of party time, right? I have a plan for weekends too...that's when I hit the most meetings!!! So far it's working pretty darn good, so I think I'll keep right on doing what I'm doing!

((djshubert and na4today))) How ya'll doing...still hanging in there

Still here!! Saturday will be one week for me! I haven't had too rough a time, except for some sleeplessness and loss of appetite but I know it will soon pass. I feel 100% better than I did last week when I was still getting high. I have more energy and I feel like a more positive person. Glad to see your doing well also!!!

Glad to hear that everyone is doing so well. Let's all hang in here together, just one day at a time.

We are making great steps forward with our lives and it is amazing the places we can go.

Hi, I'm 2weeks free from my drinking.
Too bad I have a court date coming up and face probably 4 days in jail. My bac was .33 when I rear-ended a dui defense lawyer's 2000 Lincoln! The cop said he would have been in a coma with that level. I thank God that nobody (myself included) was hurt. My two young boys need their mommy!!!! I don't even f*ing remember hitting the car and "fleeing" the scene. Can I stay and get some support?

(((approck1976))) Congrats on two weeks and of course you can stay, and welcome to SR. You'll find lots of folks who have been where you are...and back again! 'Bout the court date...try and look at it this way...four days is better than four years, right?

Good to see ya'll checking in and staying sober...keep up the good work!

Well, I might as well join since I fit in so well. I started out Friday the 13th in the emergency room cause I passed out on my face in a parking lot. So today is day one for me.

Thanks for the kind words Cathy. I'm really sorry for what I keep doing to my family. I have depression issues and I've not been taking good enogh care of them. I got a serious blow and jumped right back in the bottle. No excuse for it.

Depression seems to be a big factor in alcohol problems. I have it. I also was diagnosed bipolar. So I'm also familiar with wild highs(not substance induced). A twelve pack and a bottle of wine always hit the spot. I kept telling my husband that I needed "time for myself", and my boys (ages 4 & 5) were my partying buddies. My husband has been really great with supporting me and not putting me down since my dui and everything. I do believe that things happen for a reason. Now my meds will actually work for my disorder and my family won't have to put up with a miserable drunk.

That's great about your husband. My wife is the same way for the most part. She's getting tired of it though. 21 years is way too long to have to deal with me. It just never goes away. Well, I'm going to bed soon and I'll have one day complete. I'll try again tomorrow.

Congratulations on one day! That's awesome. I can only hope that my boyfriend (B) will be able to do that one day.
