  • Pledging for today
  • Today I pledge to stay sober. Thank you, everyone, whether I know you or not, for I know that God works through you. And always has. That is the only explanation I have for being alive.
    I pray for everyone's long and slow recovery.
    (day 49)
  • 6 months sober tomorrow, can't blow it now!
  • Reflecting on some Super Bowls from the past. Funny how I don't remember what it was like to be drunk, but I sure remember the hangovers. Today, I will pledge to be sober and present for the game.
  • I am very, very lonely. I give and give and then give some more. I very often feel like my contributions are taken for granted and I am being set up to fail
    • (((DSWGUILLAUME)))) Welcome! And glad you've reached out with your feelings. The only one that has power to set you up for failure is yourself. Lots of things may not FEEL so comfortable as we journey, but we can control how we respond and keep charge of our sobriety. If you come start a discussion elsewhere on the site, we can all reach out to you better and get you feeling at need to be lonely with all of us here. Hope to see you keep sharing. Encouragement Hug on Ya! thomas
  • Lazy Sunday
    Marilyn's (Booth) memorial service was yesterday afternoon
    It went very well 50 people showed up.
    No booze today
    • Glad to hear it went well, Paul, and grateful you were able to be there. May she rest in serenity.
  • Good Morning... pledging for today. Still dealing with horrific head pain, so I guess I'll call Dr in a.m. Two weeks of this is enough. But it's sunny outside and I'm moving through the day with joy in spite of head! YAY! Couldn't choose to do that if I wasn't sober! Hugs to EACH of you!
    • (((Gosh Shrat))) !! I hate you are still having those head pains. Please follow up with Doc and come update us when you can. I'm sad when you don't feel well. Hugs! thomas

        As I have read and studied about the lives and the writings of great Spiritual leaders\authors of peace and living well, I have always wondered how in their own personal lives they might react when spontaneous moments of anger or discontent arise. After all, they are living the human condition like everyone else.…

Choosing Life - A New Start for 2016

Wow.   It’s a new year, a new site (Thank you Hazelden Betty Ford), new opportunities, and for me a fresh start, a new outlook on job hunting and the other opportunities that are in front of me, including my sobriety.

I don’t know why, but in general, I’m feeling more positive than I have in months.    I now realize that I spent the last half of 2015 in a depressive episode but didn’t realize how bad it was until I got out of it.

I don’t know if it’s my last medication change…
