Having released allot of emotion yesterday after Gilmers news, https://www.soberrecovery.com/forums...rent-path.html (A Different Path), I had dreams last night about crashing cars and a dog attacking my dog.

A nice sober and fullfilling day wished for all....

Not so early today.

Going to meet up with a friend visisting from South Africa. Shes been gone a year. I have missed her and am so glad shes back for awhile.

Work at 3. I am still at the community mental health care place. They are combining The youth and family with the adult center. Not a going senerio.

I hope you all had a great 4th of July. I am grateful to not have a head thumping hangover and the shakes this morning.

A safe sober Thursday to all.

Up at 0424. On this morning following an American holiday known for drinking and eating, I am grateful for:

-waking up
-waking up sober and abstinent (I also work a food program)
-having to be at work (means that I have a job!)
-my friends on Early Risers

Thanks for the new thread Dragon!

I too am glad to be hangover free following a big drinking holiday here in the US. The beach town I am staying at was full of people partying hard before the fireworks were shot off in the ocean from a barge. Watching the water light up is a cool way to enjoy fireworks.

Very sad news about Gilmer. She was one of the original members I met on SR besides the folks on my monthly thread. Hopefully, her deep spirituality will help her in her time of need.

Make the most of each and every day gang.

Oh, slept in finally to 7:00am this morning.

Me too, all upside down. I was home alone when I saw Gilmers post. I cried. I hadn't cried like that in years. Guess I had allot in me that needed letting go. this sucks. I've got my candles burning and appreciating things a little more.

Up at 2:45 am because my BF was leaving for California for 4 days for work. He had to be at O'Hare Airport by 6am. I have to take this week ODAAT because lonliness is on of my triggers. Good Morning, EarlyRisers!

Hang in there Chloe! Loneliness is definitely a stressor, and I am glad that you are mindful of that. I know you will do well.

Ringo, sounds like you didn't really want to start the week this morning!

Though off, I had to get up at 5:30 to get my son to work. Then off to the car dealership to get my wife's car inspected. Plenty more errands on the list today.

Enjoy the day all!

Up at 4:30 am for work this morning. Had a wonderful 11 days away from work, my only big vacation of the year. Have a much better attitude right now. We will see how quickly work changes that!

Have a good day all!
