LaFemme... it's a silver heart with a tiny amethyst in one corner at the top. I think I've mentioned on here before that I found out that amethyst symbolizes sobriety. Since I am into collecting jewelry, I've decided I am allowing myself to pick out small new amethyst pieces for major milestones (30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 6 months and then the first year and each year after.) Nothing crazy expensive, just something to commemorate each occasion... sort of like a chip I'd get if I were doing AA. This one is my "30 day chip"

What will your tattoo look like?

I will not drink today despite the fact that I am pissed at SR...

I am going to get a tattoo of my zodiac symbol (Pisces)..I was going to do the basic symbol, but I was just crossing through Grand Central and I was looking at how pretty the Pisces sign on the ceiling is and I was debating getting something a little more elaborate...I've never gotten one before so I am kind of scared about doing something more involved.

I remember about the amethyst, I have been trying to remember where my amethyst necklace pendant is. I got it as a teenager and I might have lost it:-(

Your necklace sounds pretty:-)

I will not drink today because LaFemme is pissed at SR.

I will also not drink today because I could end up with a tattoo if I did.

(On a side note I'm not sure where the thread went wrong to get it locked, I hope it didn't have anything to do with what I posted.)

I won't drink today because last time I drank and posted on here I got a thread locked down. Hahahaha At the time it was a bit embarrassing, but at this point I've seen so many oddities on SR that I find it a bit funny. Yet another "Look how ridiculous you are" moment brought to you by beer!

I will not drink today because I encouraged my sober (since 1988) friend to regain his empowerment he felt he had lost. He thanked me saying "There is nothing like talking to another drunk. Its easy to forget how this works. Thank you for being there."

I will also not drink because although expected to pass away, my friend Craig is still with us and we are hopeful his liver cancer will kick rocks after some chemo. He has mentored so many and has a lot of fight in him. We don't call him "F Bomb" for no reason!!

Congrats on a month!

I won't drink or drug today because at the moment I'm too lazy to get off the couch to find the remote control, much less leave home to find alcohol or drugs.

Though frankly I'm not sure how many Everybody Loves Raymond re-runs I can handle...

Gneiss, sounds like you have the same disease as I do, LDS. (lazy dog syndrome) When I eat I get sleepy, and when I wake up I'm hungry! A viscous circle..

I won’t drink today because I'm reading the book "Staying Sober" by Terence Gorski, and I’m concentrating on staying sober!!

LaF, take care. No shame in showing up late and leaving early.

I won't drink today either if that helps at all.
