Fluffy gneiss, I like that! Makes me think of a kitten. I'm feeling more like a blowfish. I'll work on fluffy it's a much more positive attitude! Thanks

I haven't been a very SR member lately - Sorry.

I got fired last week. I'd like to say I got laid off, but that is not true, after 19 years, not a penny of severance or even a handshake. "Please don't let the door hit you on the way out." Oh well, that is really there burden to bear. I am sober, and I am looking forward to life, and enjoying this moment.

Take care, I am ok.

So.... it's been.... a while.

Life is good, been working and hanging out with friends, same ol' thing. So far summer is pretty good. I definitely have the darkest tan I've had, like, ever (quite an accomplishment since I'm one small step short of albino!). I'm feeling good, getting out and doing stuff as much as possible.

Hope everyone is doing well. Recycle, good luck on the next step. I got fired once and when I got over the initial shock it was actually the best thing that could have happened, I was miserable at that job. I'm glad you're enjoying what you have.

Thanks folks, ultimately this will be a good thing for me. It feels a little savage right now, but I know I need to focus on finding the next right thing and I will be ok.

I'm an atheist who has to attend aa everyday (for 2 more months) and have been trying to "work" the program in my own secular way. just realized that my definition can be private to me, which will be not having a sponsor, not doing the 4th and 5th. I know what I have done and need to do to change...and will continue going to aa because I have to and to fill my social needs while working on my life goals and healthier lifestyle. I'm feeling very empowered!! : )

Been doing well. Recently I've been on some sort of cosmic roll. I'm working again. It's part-time and not terribly demanding. Finally finished my GED in the middle of April which has been an enormous weight off of my shoulders. I start college full time in August. An essay I wrote even won a scholarship that was hosted through the GED program I attended.

Being able to say that I'm a student again is really awesome. I was a high school drop out for so many years, but now I'm really ready for a second chance at finishing an education in an institution.

I've mostly been working on time management skills and reading more often to get my brain moving. I picked up a vegan diet again, and I've been hitting the gym 4-6 days a week.

Oh my gosh I'm so bored. We've basically hit a wall at work, for now my job consists of sending one email update per day (and I don't even have to be on site), which takes a good 10 minutes, a 1-minute phone call, and about 1 minute to file my work record so I get paid for all that hard work. And for the other 23:48 I do pretty much whatever I want. It's killing me. Idle hands do the devil's work, right?

I have a good friend from way back in my undergrad days who just got her master's in clinical psychology and... oh boy. She knows all about drug addiction. Except that her crazy experience with drugs involve a day when she had 3 drinks instead of stopping at 2. It's book knowledge, and she doesn't know how silly she sounds to me. I'm not sure how to handle it, if I should just listen to her advice and know she means well or perhaps say something.

Anyway... hope all is well. Take care everyone.

gneiss, I think telling her may be a kind thing to do. She could learn a lot if you let her know what is true for you. But you are under no obligation to tell her anything or teach her. It's okay to let it pass. (Just my opinion- I'm not even sure if you wanted opinions!)

Thanks, Oak. I'm not sure either, I guess I was just mentioning it because it was on my mind. But since I put it out there, thanks.

Still waiting for work to start again. At least I get paid for the downtime, but... there's just not much to do and it's not much fun. I don't like sitting around waiting, it stresses me out more than working.
