    Let’s break down your focus @Jesss. What can you control at this minute?

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 1 week, 3 days ago

    Yeah. Rereading posts from my starting point would surely send me right back to the liquor store!!

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    A great day indeed!

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    Not today. Good for you!

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    VERY well said! Congrats on 414 days. That’s amazingggg

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 1 week, 4 days ago

    Wow! That’s so AWESOME! Can’t even imagine how awesome your next 5 years will be. You truly are an inspiration to me. God bless you

    I think the difference for me this time is that instead of (only) quitting drinking this time around I’m also asking myself all the why’s of my drinking. I think all this internal work and dialogue is what “recovery” is all about. Not just abstinence. Keep on keepin on!

    Hey sweetie @Jesss. I didn’t get to reply yesterday but I was thinking about you. You’ve come so far and there’s no turning back now. Life sucks sometimes. And there isn’t a thing we can do about it sometimes. I’m so sorry!! Please continue to honor your sobriety and just keep doing the best you can when you can. Thoughts and cyber hugs!!!

    I’m agreeing will all the above!!! I have eliminated several toxic friendships and have not one regret. I also deleted my Facebook and have not regretted that either!!

    I’m pretty proud of myself right now. Yesterday I ran a 1/2 marathon. I was always a runner, running through pregnancies – before, during and after. Still kept up with my running even after 4 kids. Thought I was really cool being able to knock back drink after drink and still run. Carbs, right?!?! Even had a shirt that I bought at a long d…[Read more]

    I can hear a concrete resolve in your post. A strong determination that I believe will suit you.

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Sweet @Bobby. I love your tender loving spirit. I think I missed what/when you said something out of the norm to your parents. Have you spoke with them at all since then?

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Oh gawwwd. Sounds awful.

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    “It’s time for a change”-you said it well. I’m taking the nonchalant attitude of “been there/done that”. Did the drinking thing. Now moving on to a supercool new stage – living authentic.

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Love your authenticity and not “renaming” yourself. Lol. I’m out of state now visiting with my adult son who saw me at my worst with drinking and it’s such a wonderful blessing to have this time now sober. Glad you had that moment last night.

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Wow. Great job holding out!

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    You rock! Great for you for seeking an alternative beverage

  • R51 posted a new activity comment 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    Can never go wrong with speaking from your heart. Huge congrats to you.

  • R51 posted an update 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    One major tool I used in the beginning of my new AF lifestyle journey was asking myself the “WHY’s” of my drinking, drinking habits, patterns, etc. etc. etc!!!! I worked through that. Now I’m realizing that I need to start that process all over again. I need to ask myself “WHY” am I having drinking thoughts after almost a year and a half AF. T…[Read more]

    • Hi @R51! I think of drinking thoughts as pesky, like a fly I can swat away. Because I think even if I did have a good time, it would be a fast slippery slope and nothing good would come of it. Have a : ) week-end! x
