    Best advice is…don’t put one drop of alcohol down your throat. How far are you willing to go in order to do that?

    (A bit late in the day, but I knew I’d find you somewhere on here waving the flag. Congratulations on making your son’s dental appt, right on time and in good order @Jocord. That IS a big deal!!) Wow:)

    Hiya @Lee@. Interesting exercise to read back through your old posts, aye. Hiya…I’m awake for some reason at 2.45am over here. Having a hot drink and now fully fledged into LS. . Reading back through (my) posts felt like walking through a time warp. I couldn’t look at them for a long time. The past year has felt like a time warp, ha. A good one.…[Read more]

    • Time warp is right @MalibuStacey. When I look at the relapses I see extremely warped time. The awkwardness of getting sober is kinda warped as well but in a good way. Like a tadpole trying to fly. 🙂

    Oh, @Izzy. You don’t sound so good. Today might not be the day to ‘set the record straight’ with your husband. That’s hard enough to do with yourself, and may very well be the place you begin, with you. Drinking the way we have to, wrecks our kind. You’re right. I’ll never forget what a friend said last year, he said alcohol will ruin your life,…[Read more]

    Hi @gomergirl. I know the feeling really well, too. I think most of us here, do. God hears you. Now, your part of the deal is to wait this day all the way through without sticking one drop of alcohol down your throat. Do what MissFreedom said. And, minute by minute, hour by hour, hold Jesus’ hand. He’s right there for continued cleansing and…[Read more]

    And there you were, right there, @JS123 ~ hard-core sober. Well, if that doesn’t just cement and put a cherry on top of your last 58 days, I don’t know what. Prayers your husband fully recovers from that fall in no time. He might be a bit sore for a couple days, aye.

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 2 days, 21 hours ago

    You beautiful soul, @missfreedom. You’re walkin’ in the light! And, what a day to enjoy that wonderful 400 day milestone.

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 5 days, 1 hour ago

    That’s a welcome relief, @enzedgirl. Sweet. As for myself, as time passes, I’m really enjoying (re) discovering what I’m really made of. I’m fairly fond of her after all ~

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 5 days, 5 hours ago

    Thanks for posting that, @DaveH. It helps (me, at least) when someone further ahead in the game can explain some of the curve-balls to expect and how best to handle them. I’m not tip toe’ing around waiting for the boogeyman to jump out of the closet, but keeping eyes in the back of head, all the same. It really helps to read a few pointers here…[Read more]

  • Hiya @Enzedgirl🙂 You headin’ the right direction with that damn flu/virus thing improving just a little? Helllooooooo little one. xo

    • totally heading in the right direction, Malibu, thank you very much for asking! 🙂 still have an over-production of snot, but you know. the sore throat and headache have eased right off so i’m a happy camper!

      how you doing sweet lady?

      • That’s a welcome relief, @enzedgirl. Sweet. As for myself, as time passes, I’m really enjoying (re) discovering what I’m really made of. I’m fairly fond of her after all ~

      • Ohh get well better soon, enzedgirl! Flus are the worst. They stick around what feels like forever. oxoxoxoxox

      • That sounds ghastly my friend,,take care. Hopefully that is your dose for the Winter. Did you get the flue vaccine?
        Xxxx how are you today?

        • Oh so much better thx Morgan … no I was going to have it kadt week but didn’t want to once I got sick.

          I’ll do it this week. Might organize pertussis too as i can get that for free

    Raise my hand to that one, too @Liberty.

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    Oh, Wee Poppit, that’s no fun at all. Well…you know…we’re sure glad you told us. Prayers for healing, nice & quick. All the above + what you can take in your medicine cabinet to help relieve the symptoms, a little. Dunno…sounds a bit virus-like, to me (concerned face/furrowed brow emoji thing). xo

    • blurgh it’s dragging on Malibu but it’ll go away soooooooooon xxx

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    From my armchair psychologist position, it sure looks like she just might be reflecting back on her own issues (with alcohol) @Agirl. Can you see that?

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    Your post goes straight into my special ‘pearl’ folder, @newstart100. It’s all well & good to have achieved a period of ‘sobriety’, at 320days, myself….but am becoming fully aware the stages of change are naturally unfolding into, and will continue to unfold into ‘recovery’. Pretty sure I said that right. Sure do appreciate reading your post…[Read more]

    Ahhhaaaha….early times…hi @Lee@. Can relate, can relate. All those labels ~ hiding their insipid, pathetic and cowardly contents ~ call it out, girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 40 days & 40 nights…sailing that voyage! You beauty!!

    • Lee@ replied 1 week ago

      Yep I’m sailing alright @MalibuStacey! Had to throw all of the bad eggs overboard though, and the beasts who laid them. Lightened my load a bit.

  • MalibuStacey posted a new activity comment 1 week, 2 days ago

    Hi, @Tamsil. Hopping on and off the alcohol train is enough to drive (me) you nuts…and that’s an understatement. Knowledge is power. So, if you really don’t know why you keep ‘getting on and off that merry-go-round’, there is a reason. It’s pretty simple, but super hard to understand when we’re in the middle of drying/soaking/drying/soaking our…[Read more]

    Hiya @Michael6. Ahhh….dentals. I’ll bet you’ll be relieved when the procedure is done and your little mouth is given a fair, healthy chance to recover. Sounds like you’re doing the right thing. That’s what counts 🙂 We like teeth. Teeth are important. Say yes to the teeth. As for putting alcohol into the equation….say no to that scumbag…[Read more]

    • Skipped dental appointment! Will rebook. Still not drinking. Just need to get through today without “taking a break” and giving in. I had a drink dream last night. I was trying to buy wine. Would be a shame to give in again at 1 week. I need to not give in to that mind trick that says “it would be nice and a break.” Apart from a very short time in…[Read more]

    Mornin’ @Lee. Seek all the hidden small pleasures, unique to you, along the path today. Bless ya.

    (What is a ‘drinking season’?) Hiya @ridge.

    • Was trying to respond to your last post and both of ours just vanished @MalibuStacy. Poof! they are gone. The point that I was trying to make was that there is none. No point, in drinking that is.
