    Hi all, day 302
    Life has been stressful this past week and today. Not a temporary thing either. I guess the thing for me is that even tho my life is far from problem free it is still better than good. I know myself better, like myself more and can see joy in something everyday. I cherish my friends, am more open to try new things and my love for…[Read more]

    • Nice to hear from you @Saoirse, congrats on day 302. It takes a while, but you are spot on, life is better without the drink. Not always stress free, but one less thing to deal with.

    • Thank you for sharing this, it’s always good to be reminded of the good that comes from sobriety, especially during the tougher days ❤️❤️❤️

    • Thank you @saoirse for your post, I’m on day two and really looking forward to getting to know myself more!

    • You have really made the most of everything that has come your way despite considerable pain and difficulty. I love hearing how positive you are. A shining star, a lamp lighter

    Oh @timetobesober you are having a rough time and it is hard to break that cycle once it takes hold. My first waking thought when I was really angry would be anger and thoughts of revenge and how I could hurt ex to the point it was all I could think about and it wasn’t helping me or making me feel good, it just made me feel hopeless. It was hard…[Read more]

    Hi @ro don’t know how you do those freakishly early mornings. Hope you have a better sleep tonight. ❤️

    • Hey there you! Yeah can’t say I like it at all. Don’t really have a choice though. If I got asked to do it all the time Id say nah ah. How have you been @saoirse ? How’s things with your lad? Have you seen him? New guy still firing your jets? ?

    Hi all thanks for the shoutout @Meinz. Day 296 and have been busy enjoying this sober life which is so great!!! I am very happy in the new relationship which I have finally given myself permission to enjoy. Have been on a couple of motorbike rides which I loved and it is nice to be with a man who’s not shy about telling me how great I am LOL. We…[Read more]

    • @saoirse I would like to hear more about what you describe as “my first waking thing” and reframing your thoughts as I am badly in need of some reframing myself…

      • Oh @timetobesober you are having a rough time and it is hard to break that cycle once it takes hold.

    • That answered my questions. Sorry you didn’t hear from your lad 😢 I can’t understand why they take so long (psyche report for example) when it’s peoples lives in their hands. I can totally understand why you would feel angry – sounds as though you got a handle on it which is good. Nice to catch up, you sound great otherwise. Not far off a year…[Read more]

    • Great to hear all well with you. I enjoy reading your posts because I am lucky enough to live in your favourite part of NZ which, as you know, is small & relatively undiscovered (until the last few years anyway). Sounds as though you are filling your time with positive new interests, something that I am also doing. I’ve taken up a few new hobbies…[Read more]

    Good morning everyone,
    Looking forward to this long weekend. Catching up with my friend Michelle later this morning to head off to Waihi Beach for the day, hope to do a nice walk. Then off to Mark’s and he is taking me for a motorbike ride to Raglan tomorrow, super excited but a bit scared too. Know I will love it but a very long time since I’ve…[Read more]

    Good morning everyone
    Day 269 and trucking along nicely. Doing lots of drawing which I am enjoying, my happy place. Have just started practising birds which is something I wouldn’t have thought would interest me but there you go. My man friend gave me this book with awesome paintings of wildlife and it proved an inspiration.
    On the topic of this…[Read more]

    Hi with all of your kindness and goodness how could it not be ok? This is just a down patch which will come right, your little ones are your guides, stay true to them and everything will be fine. ❤️

  • Saoirse posted a new activity comment 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Oh @timidwarrior so sorry to hear you are doing it rough right now. I wish I were there to give you a big hug, you have been so kind and helpful to me. Hang in there, you are a wonderful friend and I care about you lots. Stay on here if you need to for company, I’m not up to much so will keep checking in. Lots of love❤️

    • Thank you so much, your post brought tears to my eyes. What I would give for hug from someone who would hold me tight and tell me everything will be ok. All the hard stuff and the anger and hurt and struggles will not last forever, that I will be happy and that I will make my kids proud…
