    Was wondering about you, @iowadawn, until I found this. Looks like all is well….

    Those kids are lucky to have you. I could never teach. Wouldn’t last two weeks.

    Well done on 100.

    Just saying hello, Mari.

    Have to get to work after reading through some posts, but first a shout out to @thor. Stay warm, buddy; hope your computer didn’t freeze up.

    • Double that shout-out @thor, I was up at Thor o’clock this morning and thought of you, wondered how you’re doing. Spring is just around the corner for you guys. The last long-feeling stretch.

    I never drink NA beer. Or decaf coffee. We have alcohol in the house, but its not for me. I thought others might like it when they visit, but they don’t touch it. Maybe I’ll get rid of the stuff that nobody would drink, and free up some shelf space. And I agree, it’s amazing how our own brains try to trick us. So in a sense, we have to watch…[Read more]

    Nice post Morgan, it inspires the effort, and that can only be good.

    Children are amazing. There was a time when all of our children were teens or early twenties, and it seemed like a decade without little ones. Well, it was a decade without little ones, and we missed them.

    Another great warning of the dangers of relapse, thanks for that. So often I’ve heard it’s tougher to quit in subsequent attempts. Really happy for you getting close to that one month, @kerryjean47.

    Hi @bez500; hope all is well. You okay?

    • Hi. I’m fine, thanks for asking. I’m away at the mo but hoping to get on this site and have a good look around in the next few days!

  • Tom4500 posted a new activity comment 3 days, 12 hours ago

    That’s right, alcohol won’t help. We’re able to help others when we’re sober. Sometimes our addictive brains search for reasons to drink.

    I’ll never forget my day 1. The day I got my life back. Through all the ups and downs, the good has far, far outweighed the bad. You’ve made a great choice, I’m cheering for you.

    Wow great post Jes, really happy for you. And 500 days, such a cool milestone! Proud stuff.

  • Tom4500 posted a new activity comment 4 days, 10 hours ago

    Sounds like a great trip, and congrats on the 300 days! Don’t get me started on moderation. My friend next door tried it, he’s dead. I’m sure he’s not the first, or the last. Hope you have a great trip! Love Arizona. My sister and brother in law are in Rio Verde. Remember, you aren’t missing anything by going without alcohol. It never…[Read more]

    Busy at work, but I want to take a moment to share the news that Sandy’s biopsy was negative. That’s a relief. We’re free to move on to other less scary maladies, like dental work! Seems that once you get to our age, that visit for your annual physical just opens the door for other tests. But one nice change is not having to lie about how many…[Read more]

    Thanks for reminding me Juliana; the biopsy itself went well, and now we have just learned that the results were negative. I better do a post, so many expressed concern, it was heartwarming.

    Not much new, I’m back in on a Sunday to work in a few tax returns. Sandy and I went to the movie “Alita: Battle Angel” on Friday and we were surprised by how much we liked it. We just wanted to get out to a movie, and that seemed to be the best showing that we hadn’t seen. Another AF weekend, of course. Next Saturday is the club’s annual $100…[Read more]

    I’m curious what the new book is about. Is it too soon to share?

    My “spells” were finally diagnosed as Afib. And alcohol is known to aggravate that. Typically lasted 8 to 12 hours. The best way to diagnose is to go int a redi-care or emergency room while the attack is ongoing. It does seem very clear that alcohol is magnifying whatever physical problem you have, so I would say welcome to our club. I’m…[Read more]
