    Dittos! I feel the same way. In fact I’m in bed now with iPad. Here’s to us! 😴

    Congrats on day 3 @jamieann! Do whatever works for you. We are all different and no one should judge another’s program of choice. I’m not an AA person but I do believe the program works and has saved thousands. Keep going! I’m proud of you.

    @Thin39 I agree with what @DaveH said. If you really want a life worth living you need to dump all thoughts of wine as a reward. That will only put you back on the merry-go-round.

    Hi fabulous friends! I’m happy to be back after being locked out over a password issue. Day 384 and all is well in sunny Florida. My year soberversary passed quietly which was fine by me. No celebrating or fanfare but I treated myself to some new clothes for our big European vacation creeping up in April. Not sure how I will handle sobriety in…[Read more]

    Sounds fabulous! The Alps are on my bucket list. This year is Italy and the motherland UK. ☺️ 👍

    Congrats on14 days! That’s awesome. Keep going and work on quitting the cigs once you have a bit more sobriety time under your belt. Just don’t wait too long. Good luck! ☺️

    • Hi JoniB. Thanks for the congrats. It’s ok. I gave up the cigarettes 20 years ago. I read Allan Carr at that stage and it worked. I see through this forum that he has done one about Alcohol too! I’ll try and get my hands on it for more ammo to fight the wine witch. I’m doing ok so far tho. I’m preparing for the honeymoon thrill of giving up…[Read more]

    Holy Moley! Now that is what I call brave to have 10 teenage girls to supervise. Well done @SoberHeart! Sleep well tonight! ☺️

    Dittos to what Amy said and if you still feel antsy take a walk or a drive but keep busy. You need a distraction until the urge passes and it will. Do not give in and ruin 18 days of beautiful sobriety. The worst part is behind you. Keep going I will not drink today with you. Day 352. ☺️

    Well Day 351. Amazing really! Since last January I have been plodding through each day and avoiding all social gatherings and dinners out bla bla. But that will all change tonight. We are back in Florida at our Winter place and will be attending a surprise birthday party for a friend. The old drinking crowd will all be there and have no clue that…[Read more]

    • Legend! They will be impressed! ❤️

    • Wow, day 351! Really inspiring to me on day 88. Hope the party goes well.

    • Be proud when you see your friends. You should be! I bet more than one of them does a bit of self-reflection when they see your example (no doubt they have their own 3am moments of regret…).

    • Good luck! You are amazing and in control! I hope you have a good time and your friends see the positive changes in you and support them. I will not drink with you today…
