    Hi @mrs-d. I am using my phone. I believe my browser is chrome. I am not sure about the latest version. I did notice that the Living Sober title at the top was half for a while, but now i can see the full thing.

    “You know, some people say life is short and that you could get hit by a bus at any moment and that you have to live each day like it’s your last. Bullshit. Life is long. You’re probably not gonna get hit by a bus. And you’re gonna have to live with the choices you make for the next fifty years.”

    @mrs_d earlier today when i was getting notifications i would click on them and i kept losing the feed. I had to change from show everything to members and then switch it back. Now when i did what u asked it takes me to it no problem. When i try to edit my profile it has said the same thing since the new site changed. A big exclamation point comes…[Read more]

    • Hi @jes can you please tell me what device you are using (laptop? phone? desktop? tablet?) and what browser? (Safari? Chrome?). Also have you the latest version of the browser downloaded?

    U always have the right thing to say @liberty☺. It is puzzling business for sure! I did NOT eat M&M’s for breakfast today👍. Dragged myself to the park. Listening to music and walking around. Feels good☺

    • Gosh I wish I did always have the right thing to say @jes but am grateful it was useful this time. So great you got that validation from other colleagues – it’s not you it’s her! Yay for walks, I love them. xx

  • Jes posted a new activity comment 1 day, 17 hours ago

    Thanks @timidwarrior. She was just awful. And its her company so it’s not like i could go to HR or something. When i went back to get my check 2 employees were there telling me how awful she is too. Moving forward!

    Thanks @soberstylist. It does my head in too. This may just be a pipe dream but i am entertaining it.

    Hi @lulud. Thanks for your comment. I am 39. I am definitely thinking hard about it. It is just so hard making in a week what i have made in a night before. And i miss being able to support myself independently! I have zero thoughts about being able to moderate. Like, i absolutely positively know it will never work for me. Not saying i dont have…[Read more]

    • You are doing amazingly young woman!! And it seems you have really thoroughly absorbed your lesson about moderating which is fantastic. After 4 years, I toy with it. I was ‘successful’, but what a mind f#*k. Never any peace of mind at all. Crazy. That scares me off trying, + hating the ethanol taste UGGGHHHH hits me so powerfully with a tinsy sip

    • Thanks @morgan🌹

  • Jes posted a new activity comment 1 day, 18 hours ago

    HUGE congrats on a year! Absolutely awesome👍

  • Jes posted a new activity comment 1 day, 18 hours ago

    I came to that realization too. And crazy to find out alcohol actually makes it all worse.

    Awesome on 20 days👍

    • Awesomeness, I use to think feeling sick was just part of me , that & not sleeping, ALL BOOZE RELATED, go you on 20 days

  • Jes posted an update 1 day, 19 hours ago

    Day 470. No clue how i am sober still, but i am. Some pretty intense cravings these last few days. Lots of tears. I quit my job last week. My boss had a horrible nasty attitude and yelled. A lot. Which is my number one panic attack trigger. I wound up telling her i didnt think this was going to work out and i didn’t like the way that she talked to…[Read more]

    • Hi @Jes, I am just curious how old you are? I am 38 and last bartended over 10 years ago when I was still an alcoholic and couldn’t handle the job. I got a professional career started and was with the same company for 10 years until I got laid off. We moved halfway across the country and I have not been able to find a job so I started bartending…[Read more]

        • Thanks @morgan🌹

      • I understand about the money! I am looking at entry level and minimum wage jobs just to get a job even though I am qualified for a good career. I also am being supported by my fiancé/bf and hate it because of the anxiety of not being able to make it on my own and also my pride doesn’t like it either. I had moments at the bartending job where I…[Read more]

      • Good luck, being around booze does my head in but we are all different, be careful & stay safe, lots of love and HUGS 😀

    • Good on you for standing up for yourself to your boss. Being in a job you hate is not fun! Well done for staying sober through it to! Your 470 sober will have helped you get through that.
      You are doing amazing lovely xxx

      • Thanks @timidwarrior. She was just awful. And its her company so it’s not like i could go to HR or something. When i went back to get my check 2 employees were there telling me how awful she is too. Moving forward!

    • Hi @jes, big stresses there. I know, how is it we can be fearless when younger and find the same activity terrifying a decade later? It’s a puzzling business.
      But that aside 470 days is fantastic. Momentum like that is hard won. So if we need different safeguards now, well we just do. No going back.
      I hope the breakfast M & M’s get a break…[Read more]

    • Howdy @jes ! That job and boss sound horrendous ! Good to have that behind you. Awesome congrats on the sober days and super legend for hanging on to your sobriety! Leaning on your partner financially for now isn’t a bad thing . You will get another job you will be happier in and the sun will shine in your world again. Love and best wishes.…[Read more]

    • @Jes, I’m so so sorry this new job didn’t work out. I know you were hopeful that it would. I’m so glad to hear you are sober and getting yourself out and about today. I’m also feeling quite triggered lately. I’m going on a ‘girls trip’ on Wednesday and my shingles hurt like a bitch. That voice is loud ATM. My advice to you is the same that I k…[Read more]

    @mullycatnz & @kitten i found it. Listening to it right now! Thank u!☺

    • Yes, that is it @mullycatnz@jes – just listening to the one podcast may feel different. I have listened to all the podcasts from the beginning and was really surprised about Paul’s disclosure in regard to his ongoing struggles. It may not have the same feel for you, listening to just the one. I do recommend his podcast, I especially enjoy…[Read more]
