      Pan,
      Hang in there, Wildflowers said it so eloquently and that is the beauty of MWO. Maybe, at last, we dont have to find out everything the hard way. We can SEE how it ends thru the eyes of others' bitter experience. I will add one more aspect that I experienced....dont give your hubs a REASON to stray (and a drunken partner is a good reason). That kept me going.

      Lav you are priceless! If you have ever said to yourslf, "If I can help ONE PERSON beat this addiction, then it's worth it" then you can rest easy. You HAVE helped one person.....ME! THANK YOU and congrats! I want to be you, too!

      Hope everyone has a great Sunday! Byrdie

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening Nesters,

      Meant to check in a bit earlier but the day got away from me, as usual.
      Thank you for the well wishes on my 8 year AF anniversary! Wow, if I can do this I know you all can as well.
      The most important thing for me was working up the desire to live addiction free. Once you have sparked that desire, make a good plan & make the commitment to stick to it, no matter what! That is how it's done kids

      Pan, keep your focus now & be true to your commitment You are doing great!

      Wishing everyone a safe night in the nest!

      Count me as another whose life has been mightily changed with the encouragement of the steady, strong, wise one who we know as Lavande. That simple, but powerful phrase you share - No matter what! - is what finally helped me get through detox and realize I NEVER had to be trapped ever again by addiction.

      Celebrating your 8 amazing years of living FREE...may you continue to incubate many more chicks with your fierce care and LaVANitude!
      Sober for the Revolution!

      Morning nesters ,

      How are we all doing out there ?
      Drop in & say hello or even to rant, get it out of you, If you look around this forum you will see we all all came here to get help in trying to get rid of a terrifying Addiction,

      For a lot of us here this was & is our last resort,We came here emotionaly,spritually,& in a lot of cases finicially bankrupt ,

      Maybe some of us dident hit as low as bottom as you , maybe some of us were worse of than you,

      But we are here now & we have more in common than you would think, There is a way out, There are many people on this forum with many years of a freedom from there addictions,

      Come on folks lets share & get on the road to recovery. It can be done.

      Have a great day folks.

      Right on Mario.

      Congratulations Lav! Wow, you're sure something else my friend. Git yourself something nice!

      Apologies for my absence Nesters. Super busy start to the year. 2 jobs, 2 courses. Anyway, have dropped 1 job so more me time now and happier because of it. Listen to me whinging about too much work! I know some folk are struggling to get work in many places around the world. I'm grateful to have the choice.

      Hope all are well. Wishing you a safe, sober and magical week. now where's that freakin Llama? Oi! come 'ere.......

      Good evening Nesters,

      I hope everyone has had a good AF Monday

      Turn, great to see you & thanks. We know what that wicked Lavan-ittude can do for anyone, ha ha!!!

      G, great to see you as well. Awesome on the busyness - keeps a guy out of trouble, right?

      Kensho, those scones look delicious, thank you
      I made myself a vegan cinnamon coffee cake today even though I don't need the calories, ha ha!

      Hello, Mario, Marylou, Byrdie & everyone.
      Wishing a safe night in the nest for all. Let's get everyone moving in the right direction together

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Good evening all - Wildflowers, thank you so much for the beautiful post on Saturday. It's so good to know that others have experienced the same unfounded insecurities. I will treasure that post forever. I hate to admit this and it's the reason I didn't post Sunday, but I totally blew it Saturday night. If I had waited 10 more minutes, my husband would have been home. His pickup was in the driveway when I got back from buying wine. I blew 10 days of sobriety over worries that had no basis in truth. Now I have alcohol back in my system and I've got to start completely over...I felt closer to God, my children and my husband in that week and a half of sobriety than I have in a very long time. I totally set myself up for failure on Saturday. I was out with a client in the ER until 2 am. Then, we had crazy schedules with the kids and I didn't eat until 4 pm that day (a hard-boiled egg and a cracker with some peanut butter on it) and that was on the fly. THEN the crème de la crème: the woman who was in love with my husband shows up with a bunch of his high school classmates. I had already allowed myself to be compromised physically and emotionally and I was tired...I've got to start over again. I just have to want this more than I fear it if that makes any sense.
