Hello & welcome!


To all that enter here .... welcome.
Join me in the journey... the discovery... the magic of embracing life as a new person... one that is sober & full of gratitude for being given a 2nd chance for a whole new life.

Let me introduce myself

Although I am new to this site, I have been AF for 7 months. Recently I went looking for a place that I could find support, and also lend a helping hand with what I have learned so far in my quits.

I quit smoking about a year and a half ago. By the time I reached my 1 year milestone, I had gone through a total transformation of the person I was only 12 short months previous. With my new knowledge & experience of winning the battle over one addiction, I felt ready to take on anther. Two days after my 1 yr smobriety milestone, I quit drinking.

And so began my journey to find the the person I lost so many years ago.With a strange combination of determintaion & fear, I set forth.... wondering who I would find.... would I like this person, and even more importantly.... would they be able to forgive me for all the years that I have abandoned them?

These past several months have taken me through a gamut of emotions... everything form "f**k it".... to "this is the BEST day of my life!" .. oh man, what a rollercoaster ride it's been.... lol ... and I know it's going to be a long time until it rolls to a stop & that I can get off, and stand on my own.... with both feet planted firmly on the ground.

I was fortunate to have a good online friend that helped me through the first couple of months...without their support, I don't think I could have made it through the first stages, let alone quit in the first place. Although they are no longer a part of my life, I will forever be grateful for their friendship & support.

Others that I have relied on for support have also faded into the distance, but what I have come to realize is that this is a natural cycle of life, and that we should be thankful for the time that we did share with these people & what they had to offer us at the time.


I would like to share a beautiful sentiment with you, unfortunately I do not know the author:

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met , our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Welcome Fallen.
I liked your posts and quote very much.
I am very much in that place (your first post). I have been drinking excessively for 17 years and I am sick of everything about it. I have recently moved and managed to rid myself of much of the external stress that I felt.
I have managed to get myself to an environment that is relaxing and will enable me to live out my long held dreams (on the work front).
Alcohol is no longer an option for me if I want to realise my dreams.
Thank you for both your posts, they struck a chord with me.
Thank you for reaching out and congratulations on your 7 months of sobriety. I can imagine that what your write is so true about being sober for an extended time.
I look forward to experiencing it for myself.

Hi Fallen, what a great story you have to share. Congratulations on your 7 months of sobriety and 1.5 years + of smobriety. You are proof that this can be done!

Thank you also for sharing the story of friendships for a reason / season / lifetime. I haven't been reminded of that idea for a very, very long time. And yet I believe it is true, gives a good way of viewing the many, many people we meet in forums like this one. We will no doubt develop relationships of all three kinds - and all are important to our journeys.

I am only on AF Day 2 (well, technically I started Day 3 at 3PM CST! :)) But I hope I can join you in this thread because my goal is long term abstainance. I've had a couple of false starts beginning with a 60 day AF stretch from early July '07 - early Sept. '07. I was really starting to love my AF life and be happy in it. And then the Beast tricked me into thinking I could have just one drink. For those who are able to moderate - that's great. But this fall and the subsequent one showed me that I cannot EVER drink. I can't entertain those thoughts. After falling on a very happy day in September, it took me until Nov 1 to get back on the wagon. That's one heck of a too long fall. That AF stretch only lasted a week. Mr. Doggy and I got in a argument, and the Beast once again convinced me to use that as an excuse to not care if I drank. And there I was, drinking daily again until March 13 at 3PM when I poured it all out.

I have to fight this Beast with everything I've got. I'm sure I'm damaging my health, and I'm throwing away my life one day at a time. I've written quite a lot about this in "My New Story Starts Here" in the stories section. I'm already being somewhat repetitive but LOL no reason to go WAY over the top! Here I am, and I don't want to drink any more.

I too quit nicotine just over one year ago. I am SO glad to be rid of that demon. My desire for alcohol escalated after I quit smoking. But things were so bad between Mr. Doggy and me over my smoking that I was actually entertaining suicidal thoughts from time to time. (Mr. Doggy quit about 2 years before me, and understandably got really sick of the stench, my hacking cough, etc. etc.) It was difficult and the first couple of months were sheer hell. But it was SO worth it. I rarely think of smoking now. I can't wait to get over the hurdle where I don't think about drinking all the time either.

And yet I know the lifelong vigilance will be required with both of these additions. I never consider myself a non-smoker or non-drinker. I equate those terms to people who have never smoked, or people who never were problem drinkers. These people never have a reason to reach for a cigarette or with for a cocktail to handle a problem, or to celebrate the day, or to buy time to think, etc. They have other coping mechanisms and smoking / drinking don't occur to them.

As an ex-smoker and ex-drinker, I know that to some degree I will always need to be prepared for some level of thought - no matter how mile or strong - of using these addictions as coping mechanisms long into the future. While I would never presume to tell anyone else what terminology they should use, I am trying to re-program myself as an ex-smoker and ex-drinker so I never forget that danger will always be present for me in a way that is NOT the case for Never-Smokers / Never Problem Drinkers.

FA, I look forward to getting to know you better - one step at a time. Do you plan to come her and sort of check in each day? If so, I'll be happy to join you for a daily step if you'll have me.

Thanks for starting this!!

On A More Serious Note...

Aww shucks tkeene, you're making me :blush:
(doesn't mean you have to stop with the compliments though) tee hee

I think things work both ways...
you were the one that extended your hand out to welcome me when I first got here ...and in a very short time we have become friends as well ..... I thank you for your kindness & generousity :)

We are all on the same journey, the only difference is that we join in on the path at different times... following in the footsteps of those before us.
Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey.

Yes... that was the first post I saw of yours... and I was so elated about you doing that!!
As I already told you, I made the same gesture by pouring 5 gallons of wine down the drain (to the horror of all our drinking friends that cried "why didn't you phone me?? I would have taken it!!). What we did is very symbolic... although a very simple gesture, it's a physical, visual act that we have now attached to the beginning of our sobriety. Even after 7 months, I still look back at that moment which is etched in my mind, and it's like that is the very moment that I no longer let alcohol control my life. Kudos for taking a picture of that DG! ......make copies...keep one in your wallet, one on the mirror that you look at first thing in the morning... and wherever else a quick inspiration is needed. :)

I read your "My New Story Starts Here"... and I could see that we have many things in common.... so much of what you wrote holds true for me also. Like you, I know that I can never have even a puff on a cigarette again.... that would surely turn me back into a full-fledged smoker in no time flat. And that's what I have come to the realization with drinking too... I can't have just one. I would love to moderate my drinking & only have one now & then... but time after time, I have found that this does not work for me. So for as hard as it was to decide to quit for good & never have another drink, I knew it was the only way that I could break free from my addiction.

As far as this thread goes,
I would like to think of it as our "homebase"... a place to hang our hat, a place where we can always find our friends for fun & support. I really like your idea of the daily "step"...that would be a great way for everyone involved to move forward each day in their journey... I like that alot! :)

You know, I should have thought of a better name before I signed up here! LOL ..... not sure if I'm liking being called "fallen" all the time! :catroll:
Maybe we could abbreviate it...let's see.... ummmmm... F'nAngel.....uhhhh no .....how about F**nAngel...no..... that don't work very well either........ Uggghhh! I give up! :surrender: Any ideas??

Hello Amelia, so nice to meet you!
From what you wrote, you have apparently made some very big changes in your life... good for you!
Taking alcohol out of the equation will make you appreciate life so much more, I know for me, in these past few months I have noticed how much better I am at coping with stress & life in general.
I don't know how long you have been quit, but give it time... you will find little by little, that the days start getting easier & you feel more comfortable in your skin. Of course we will always have bad days.... but at least now they seem more manageable & further apart.

May all your dreams come true Amelia!

Hey FA - How about Frickin'AwesomeAngel?? Hey - if FindingMyFeet can become FindingMySelf then you can become a different type of Angel too.

OK - I'm off to pick out a movie to watch and just relax. And hopefully get more sleep than last night. But if not, I'm ready to just deal with it. My Valerian Root awaits me.

Hello Everyone

Saying hello to all the friends here...
Just gone through all the posts by Angel ( ya, the 'Fallen' truly sucks) and all u outers, I solemnly beseech you to read all his posts once again carefully to find out who he is ( as some of us are curious to find out)....
Then, you will agree with my realisation that..
..He is an author-genius-incognito who wants to use this forum to further his quest for the Man Booker / Pulitzer and all the other million literary prizes that are up for grabs, in the process converting this forum for poor alcohol-afflicted souls like us to a literature/art appreciation course. If Angel continues lurking here for some more time, RJ probably will have to call it quits and start another website as MWO might become a haunt for the literary types....lol..
Warm welcome, Angel. Your posts are simply awesome.

Welcome doubter!! I too was :confused: reading your post until the very end! You got me!! Hey - I could use a little culture too and I bet you could find about 3856395 folks who would agree with that!

How is everyone today? I'm feeling really good today. I've already gotten a head start on laundry and some other stuff, done some thread hopping here, made a nice breakfast for me and Mr. Doggy, made my menu plan for the week and now I'm getting ready to go shopping!

Whenever I whine about craving booze, would you all please remind me how good it feels to NOT be hungover (how would daily drinkers like me every know the difference..)? Kick my butt and tell me to go take a GABA and cut the crap.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Your Future Long Term Abber,

The scene opens as Angel sips contently on her morning java

:ranger

"Hmmmm.... looks like I have a new message posted to me" she mused to herself
as she logged into MWO...... "What the .......????" :wow:

So let me get this straight Doubter (or whoever you are)... apparently not only does my ID name suck, but now there's issues on my gender??? :bat

You know, your ID isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer either...
tell you what, maybe we BOTH should look for something more befitting of our personalities.... I was thinking ScreaminBanshee might be suitable for me. As for you my friend, I've been giving this alot of thought...let's see..... SmartArse is good, but probably already taken... FavouritePasttimePokingAngryBearWithStick..... suits you quite nicely, but I think your PC connection might time out before you get logged in...... HowAmIeverGoingToLiveThis OneDown is a good one too, but refer back to FavouritePasttimePokingAngryBearWithStick for possible complications.
See... this is my point... coming up with an appropriate name isn't as easy as one would think.
You know what I'm thinking??
I think we should run a contest & have the members of MWO decide on our handles.... since we both suck at choosing our own!! LOL

Btw.... was it my reference to "going out to the garden to eat worms" that gave away my literary skills.... oar mi goud speling?

Good Morning to you tkeene!
From reading the posts this morning, it looks like we're all in good spirits & are going to have a great AF day!!
I'm really looking forward to forming a support group where we are accountable to one another & reaffirm our sobriety committment each day.
I'm going to post a thought for the day in awhile, I think it would be great if we came up with something on a daily (or semi-daily) basis to ponder & reflect on. It might take awhile, but I'm confident that we come up with ideas as a group of what we need & what works to keep us on track.

Btw... did I mention I love the icons here?? tee hee

Your wish is my command! And for about 9 months out of the year, I can deliver a swift kick to the butt with a frozen boot.... how's that?? lol

Wow! I'm impressed about you getting the week's meals planned... I always mean to do that, but it ends up the meals get made by "what's in the fridge". *sigh*

I love how upbeat you & tkeene sound today...you ladies ROCK!
I'm not sure how the weekends rate on a difficulty level for the two of you, for me it has always been tougher than the workweek... so when I eased through a weekend, it was a great way to start off on a Monday..... and NO HANGOVER! :thumbsup

Hello Thankful (what a beautiful name.... that was my first choice, but I see you already stole it) and thank you so much for the congrats!
I'm nearing my 8th month milestone I'll have you know... can we have a party or something??
Nothing fancy of course.... but you should know that I do prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate (hate for you to have to make a 2nd trip).... male strippers, well... that's just a given when it comes to parties.... theme parties are always fun, but I guess black tie would do in a pinch..... can we have those little paper umbrellas in our drinks too?? Nothing more festive than a orchid blossom print umbrella floating in 37 degree freshly squeezed organic orange juice, slice of mango, 5 glacier ice cubes in a slender crystal glass. I'm a simple girl with simple tastes.
Btw, what band are you planning to book??



Seriously, thank you so much for your kind words. :huggy
Having fun & laughing at myself has always been an important part of my recovery (as well as a few primal screams). Although we need to spend time in self-examination of why we have addictions & what we must do to overcome them, we must remember that the process doesn't need to be doom & gloom... it can be as fun & rewarding as we want to make it. :)
Sometimes, our success lies in taking our focus away from what we are battling, and enjoying the benefits of why we are doing it.



I don't suffer from insanity....

Hey FallenANGEL - tell me you think I've lost weight even though my ass has been nominated for statehood it's so big, and you get what you wish for!!

I don't see a pencil looking thingy under anyone's name. Maybe I should be paranoid!!!

You shouldn't have to re-log in every time you go to post. There is a sticky at the top of a thread somewhere - maybe the main Intro section?? where you can report proplems with the forum. I think it's time to call for support! (and if there is a doG, then maybe support will be provided by a hot looking man wearing nothing but a bow tie...)

LOL - I had extra motivation to get my meals planned and shopping done. I'm a huge figure staking fan, and the world championships are this week. THE SEQUINS!! THE RHINESTONES!! THE TIARAS!! THE WEDGIES!!! And that's just the MEN'S division!! Only a small amount is telvised in the US, but usually one can find illegal internet feeds to watch the whole thing. There is a figure skating discussion board that is positively wild that makes it almost better than being there live. SO...I'm clearing as many of my responsibilities for the week TODAY if I can. ;)

Hi Angel,tkeene, Doggygirl and all other sufferers of my obnoxious posts!
Just logged in to find my previous post being hauled over the coals- roasted, fried, smoked and charred.. Just deserts for having a wierd sense of humour and even worse posting skills!!
tkeene & Doggygirl, to not let my error degenerate into an ever embarassing mistake, I hereby clarify that I have found Angel's posts truly endearing and enlightening and was in awe of HER posting skills and hence made my earlier post in true admiration... and wanted to welcome her into this joint journey of de-addiction and self-rejeneration...sad if the post finally appeared otherwise...And the accolade was probably mistaken for a poking stick.:upset:
I think the comment 'the 'fallen' truly sucks ' got everybody's goat. I was only commenting on her screenID. I meant that for a person who comes across so refreshingly wise , the 'fallen' part of her screenID was not apt. (RedeemedAngel sounds more appropriate). I sincerely apologize that I could not convey my thought correctly.
Also, my al-addled brain couldn't discern that such perspicacious posts can only come from the gender feminine.
Angel, I was definitely not smartalecking. Not being a native english speaker, I know that my posts more often than not, come across as too heavy & turgid..... I write the way I learnt writing in my high school English classes. I read English more often than I speak & it tells in my posts.
Anyway, friends I'm here in my quest for sobriety and self-redemption. I found the posts in this site heartwarming and educative and the people here to be delightfully understanding. Lets all continue helping each other in our spiritual growth.( That is assuming I'll not be thrown out of the site for alleged transgressions..)
tkeene, about my allergy-inducing screenname. When I first logged in , I had a nagging doubt whether I should term myself an alcoholic or alcohol-dependent or whatelse. So it came naturally. Also, by nature, I'm generally afflicted with the to-do-or-not-to-do syndrome in all my actions. So I thought the ID was apt... In fact I'm seriously contemplating changing my name to Or-if.
Closing thoughts.... how does the ID Instigatorofstormsinteacups sound?

Hey doubter! I love your posts! Don't be such a doubter about yourself!! ;)

And in my ever not so humble opinion, there is nothing wrong with a good "poke" once in awhile either.

Let's see. New names for our dear FallenANGEL. How about Wings? Or maybe keep the FA name, but kidnap Wonder's former angel for your avatar? (I said he disappeared, but I was lying like a rug. I still have him, and could send him your way!)

Anyway, today has gotten off to a good start. Mr. Doggy is having a meeting right now with a client here at our house. So I was up early cleaning up dog hair and wiping off the counters, etc. etc. This dude is a high priced downtown Chicago lawyer, so I had to tiff things up a bit around here. He pulled up in his Mercedes at 9AM sharp! ;) I'm glad we don't have client meeting here very often!

Here's the good news. In the old days, I would have been stressing by now (it's 9:49AM) hoping this guy will be outa here soon so I could start sneaking drinks. Pathetic, I know. Not so today!! If anything, I'm anxious for them to finish so I can go make a spinach and feta cheese omlette - one of my breakfast faves!!! Now THAT is progress.

Happy wearin' o' the green!

Well Doubter, if that's the way you want to be.... we can't stop you from leaving our humble little haunt. Geez, I even had picked out a nice room for you down on the west wing & started getting it ready for you too. And the girls... oh dear, I'm going to have to break this to the girls about you no longer wanting to be part of our group. I'm sure the news is going to break their sweet fragile little hearts.... they've been working day & night arranging a welcome party for you.... woe is me, the one that must deliver such crushing news such as this. *sniffle*

A Simple Realization

Very early on in my quit, I came to the conclusion that more than anything, I am a Liquidholic .... I always like having something to sip on when I'm relaxing. A glass of wine or a beer was always a mindless thing to reach for.
Now I make up a pot of tea, or throw a teabag into a pitcher of cold water, and have that sitting by me when I'm at the PC or relaxing. It really has taken away the craving for a drink at those times of my day.

Hi Doggygirl, tkeene, Angel, Cindi and all friends on this thread,
Logging in, my instinct says that I should again continue in the vein that I was in in my previous post, but prudence shouts loudly in my ear that I should not distract others from the primary purpose of the Forum.
Doggygirl , thanks for having the heart to like my posts and tkeene, I solemnly assure you from now on, I'll move heaven & earth to infuse my posts with less form & more content. ( 'try' is the operative thought here- not ' succeed').
Today, is my 18th day alcohol-free. More importantly, yesterday night, I visited the Bar in my Club first time after the brawl, sat with a few boozing friends for an hour, but was only sipping soda.
This gives me courage to stay al-free for the rest of the month. It's as if I've crossed a major threshold.
Also for the past one week, I've been regularly practising Yoga, Pranayama ( breathing exercises ) & meditation for an hour everyday and this seems to have helped in curbing thoughts of booze. I would like all of you to post your favorite & effective coping strategies to stay alcohol-free.
Set the ball rolling, Angel..Of course, I had to visit the Bar solely to recuperate from yesterday's heartless lashings..
Have fun everyone

Hi Larissa

Hi Larissa,
Yoga/ pranayama sound to be big concepts, but they really are quite simple. A number of good sites are available to learn these for free.
We need to find as little as half-an-hour of time from our daily routine.
Also, the point about doing any physical / spiritual exercise is to feel positive, so that negative thoughts don't immobilize us.
All the best Larissa

First of all my Doubting friend, DON'T YOU DARE change your postings...otherwise, I'm so OUTTA HERE!! LOL

Ok,.... I'll start the ball rolling on strategies that I have used over the past months to stay sober.
I think one of the most important issues for me, is that I don't become a "dry drunk"... a drinker that doesn't drink, but still wants to. This is where so much of the emotional work comes in. We must start trying to look at ourselves with total honesty... and search for the real reasons why we drink, even though we keep telling ourselves that we don't want to.
Someone once asked me if I would pour alcohol down a baby's throat. I answered "Of course I wouldn't! Why would you suggest such a thing??" They then replied.... "So why do you think it's ok to pour it down yours??"

So often we forget about that child in all of us that we lost connection with...they are still there...frightened & alone, wondering why we abandoned them when they needed so desperately to be loved & nurtured.
That's where we need to start.
Go searching.... they are there....
but so often, we don't know where to look or if we would recognize them after all these years.

Behind a locked door, huddled in the far corner of the room, you will find them.
Take them into your arms & embrace them..... tell them how sorry you are for leaving... and that you will never abandon them again. As you look into that beautiful familiar face, you will see a glimmer of hope in their eyes...
and forgiveness in their heart.


Welcome back dear child of mine.
I have missed you.
Take my hand as we walk out of the dark
and into the light.

That was how I was aiming to feel after my research exertions.

A good Monday to you all!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! I know that DoggyGirl still has spandex wedgies dancing in her head! LOL

Today marks 20 months for me being smoke-free! This was the beginning for me of turning my life around. There are some people that quit smoking, and that is all there is to it.... they quit smoking. And then there are others who, for different reasons, have this turn into a life-altering experience.
I was one of them.

I had previously quit smoking for about 2-3 years. I thought I had my addiction beat, but I was so wrong. My mind started wandering to thoughts of having a cigarette again...."just one" I thought to myself.... how could that hurt? I talked myself into thinking that this would prove how much I hate those things, and these whispers that were taunting me, would cease. I could not have been more wrong.
I bought a pack with the intention of smoking a few.... that one pack led to smoking another 8 years... but this time it was worse. Because I was so ashamed of smoking again & the disappointment that those close to me would surely feel.... I hid my addiction... I hid it for 8 long self-degrading years.
Finally, I couldn't take it anymore. I think it came to me one day as I was figuring out how long my little smoking stint had been going on. First I was thinking about 2 years... no, I thought again... had to be 3 because of something I could link the time frame to.... and so I kept thinking & adding years..... 5.... 6..... it hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized that my one pack had led to 8 years. I knew if I didn't do something right there & then, the years would keep getting added on... and the sickness would continue.
Although quitting was very difficult, the instant freedom I felt from not living a lie anymore gave me new self worth & respect. As the months progressed in my quit, so did my self-transformation. When I reached my 1 year smoking anniversary, I was a completely different person than I was only 12 months earlier. I felt strong... I felt confident... I felt I was ready to take on another challenge. Two days after my 1 year milestone, I quit drinking.... and started on my journey of sobriety. It has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride these past months... but I have held on.
There have been many joyous & rewarding days that thoughts of drinking don't enter my mind, and there have been ones that I only have strength to get through one minute at a time. This is the new reality I must face.... it may be tough at times, but the rewards that I am now experiencing make it more than worthwhile... for the first time in my adult life, I am finally beginning to know the real me... one that is beginning to see the true wonderment of the world we live in, and the magic of life's gifts that are there for all of us, if we just open our eyes & hearts.


May the stars,
sun, moon & mind
open our world
to the brilliance of nature.
Let it shine on me.

First of all......:l for calling me by my proper name Mimi!! :thanks:

So why do people hide their addictions?
I think it comes from being an addict that is so ashamed of their addiction, and feels that this is the only way that they can cope to keep those around us happy (or so we think)... and feed our addiction at the same time.
What starts out as a whim & a few "fun" smokes, quickly puts us right back into the grip of our old addiction, and we deceive ourselves at first that we can "quit anytime". The frightening part is when we realize we can't stop, and that we are once again, addicted.... and maybe even more so this time around.
This is why I regard my smoking quit as a precious gift to myself... one that I will never take for granted & always keep green.

FA,

Congratulations on the Adult Life part, doing what we are doing can involve a bit of growing up and I know I have my work cut out for me. I love reading your posts you really open up at times and are inspiring with your thoughts you share. I thought it only fair that I pitch in with a thought of the day as well...

Thank you so much for your kind words & this beautiful quote... what a wonderful way to start off my day of celebration... thank you again!

Today marks 8 months of sobriety for me...
a day that I intend to celebrate my accomplishment in many ways...
reflecting on the past months.... sharing the joy that I feel today... and pondering on what the next months will hold in store.

In Search Of Wednesday

?Yes, sir, may I help you??
?Uh, yes, yes you can. I?d like to buy a day.?
?I see. What type of day did you have in mind??
?Well, I really don?t know. What do you carry??
?Well, sir, we have the basic seven days: Sunday through Saturday. Then we also have your weekend gift set. That includes Saturday and Sunday. Over here we have what we call our ?Deluxe Day Gift Set,? which consists of a Friday evening starting at six p.m. and continuing on until twelve a.m. Sunday.?
?That looks nice. But I wonder what you might have in the lone of holidays??
?I?m glad you asked. Step right this way. Over on this counter we have a complete and up-to-the-minute selection of novelty days. They include all your regular holidays, and some others: Woman?s Day, Baby?s Day, Crying Day, and Anticipation Day. That?s going to be a big seller this year.?
?Well, I think I?ll take one of your basic seven days; how about Tuesday??
?A good choice, sir. We just received a new shipment of Tuesdays yesterday. Tuesdays have been very popular.?
?Oh, well, in that case?something more obscure. How about Wednesday??
?:Fine, sir. Will that be cash or charge??
?Cash.?
?Fine , sir. Did you want that gift-wrapped??
?Oh no, don?t bother. A bag will be fine.?
?That?ll be three weeks of hope and four days of despair.?
?Are these on sale or something??
?Oh no. That?s our regular price. Are uh, you from around here??
?No, I?m just passing through. I?m on my way to Tranquility, but stopped to pick up a few things first.?
?Oh, I see. We don?t get many people passing though these parts.?
?It?s a nice little place. What did you say the name of it was??
?Inner Peace.?


Outside the store, the Man stepped into his Insearchov and was on his way. With one hand on the Destiny wheel, the other propped on the window ledge to support his Thought, the Man was off.
It was a warm day, and the sun?s rays danced and sparkled on the Insearchov?s shieldnothing. The Man leaned back in Contentment.
About three miles up the road, the Man took a left at Forgetyourtroubles Road. Down this rocky, unpaved road was a clearing?a beautiful green-grassed knoll hugging a silver stream. This was it. The Man?s spot for the day. Away from everyone and everything. The perfect spot to be Alone with his Day.
The Man took Wednesday, got out of his Insearchov, and stretched out on the cool grass. He looked up at the sky and saw it was cloudless.
Taking Wednesday out of its box, the Man groaned.
?No wonder it was so inexpensive. I have to put it together myself. Now how am I going to put this Day together right??
Muttering under his breath, the Man laid out all the pieces and unfolded the instructions. He read aloud:
?You have purchased a product whose quality cannot be excelled. Using the following directions as a guide in assembling, your Day will be sturdy, rugged and long lasting; guaranteed, or your hope and despair back.?
?Sounds easy enough,? the Man said.
?Now, let?s see here: starting with Part (B)eginnings, connect Part (C)hildhood on the bottom right-hand slot. Part (D)ecisions should now fit next to it. IMPORTANT: Make sure Part (D) is firmly attached early in assembly. This is a basic part on which many others depend.
After securing Part (D), Parts (E)mptiness, (F)rustrations and (H)urt can now be attached. This completes Part I, the basic structure.
?Part II uses Parts (K)nowledge, (L)earning and (M)aturity, which fit into corresponding holes.?
?The third phase of your Day uses Parts (O)ppression, (P)atience and (S)orrow. Simply place the piece in the slot with the corresponding letter.
The Man followed the instructions, and soon his Day was underway. Everything was fitting in smoothly, which surprises the Man a great deal.
He continued reading: ?The next-to-last stage uses only three of the four remaining pieces: (T)rust, (U)nderstanding and (W)isdom. Attach these in the same manner as above.?
?As you will see, the structure is complete, save for Part (A)nswers. This final piece fits snugly over the entire structure, thus completing the assembly of your Day.?
But there was no Part (A). The Man scanned the Land, looking for the missing part, but it was nowhere to be found. (A)nswers was missing. The only thing to do was to turn around and head back to the store. He?d explain to the storekeeper that after having made his purchase, he found that it had a part missing. The storekeeper would either have to give the Man his Hope and Despair back, or give him the missing part. The Man was sure, however, that a little store like that would not have Answers in stock. So probably the Man would just settle for a new Day?one with Answers.

FallenAngel;291695 wrote: Although I am new to this site, I have been AF for 7 months. Recently I went looking for a place that I could find support, and also lend a helping hand with what I have learned so far in my quits.

I quit smoking about a year and a half ago. By the time I reached my 1 year milestone, I had gone through a total transformation of the person I was only 12 short months previous. With my new knowledge & experience of winning the battle over one addiction, I felt ready to take on anther. Two days after my 1 yr smobriety milestone, I quit drinking.

And so began my journey to find the the person I lost so many years ago.With a strange combination of determintaion & fear, I set forth.... wondering who I would find.... would I like this person, and even more importantly.... would they be able to forgive me for all the years that I have abandoned them?

These past several months have taken me through a gamut of emotions... everything form "f**k it".... to "this is the BEST day of my life!" .. oh man, what a rollercoaster ride it's been.... lol ... and I know it's going to be a long time until it rolls to a stop & that I can get off, and stand on my own.... with both feet planted firmly on the ground.

I was fortunate to have a good online friend that helped me through the first couple of months...without their support, I don't think I could have made it through the first stages, let alone quit in the first place. Although they are no longer a part of my life, I will forever be grateful for their friendship & support.

Others that I have relied on for support have also faded into the distance, but what I have come to realize is that this is a natural cycle of life, and that we should be thankful for the time that we did share with these people & what they had to offer us at the time.


I would like to share a beautiful sentiment with you, unfortunately I do not know the author:

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met , our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Good to see you again!

Hi Palatia.... so nice to see you again.... I read YOUR story earlier today!:)
I think you're going to do great... you have a wonderful positive attitude about your quit... that is a key element in being successful. Of course there will be tough spots, but they are only temporary, always remember that. I guess with my quit, I deal with the rough parts by getting through them one day at a time, not thinking about what lies in front of me...
but when I look at the positive side of it & the benefits, then I tend to look at my sobriety as a lifetime commitment.

Which are you?

A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see."

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

The high noon sun blazed brightly overhead as Angel skipped cheerfully to the open field where the D.B. has sat still, and silent for the most part, the past week.

The waiting was finally over & Angel could hardly contain herself. Twirling the crowbar like a majorette, she sang & chanted while doing her little happy dance. Around & around the oversized crate she danced until she worked herself into such a frenzy...she collapsed to the ground, gasping for breath.

As her eyes began to focus again, she took notice of a small metal tag on the crate. "Damn Imports" she muttered, and got out her magnifying glass to read the inscription:

Acme Devine Boon Model #42
In Hindu mythology there is a force known as the Divine Boon. It is a protection that cannot be destroyed by man or beast. Arrows were fired, stones thrown, but such trifles were brushed aside. Those relying on the Divine Boon were unconquerable and indestructible


Halfway through reading its legacy, a bright glare reflected off the magnifier's lens. Angel the Warrior Princess had been expecting something of this nature and quickly reacted..... in one swift move she caught a sun's ray in the polished glass surface & aimed it directly into the distant binoculars' eyepiece.

An ear-splitting scream was heard in the trees as a familiar silhouette fell to the ground & ran back into the forest in what appeared to be excruciating pain.

Hey FlyinHigh..
about time you got here and gave me a hand... these guys have been very uncooperative, to say the least.
Tlrgs was really getting on my nerves....wouldn't stand still :dancingskel:when I was trying to pick him off with my trusty slingshot http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k188/teigan_2006/fling%20things/Slingshot.jpg


IAD's duct-taped to that power pole over there... if he gives you any trouble, just flick this switch a few times... :onfire: I found that quiets him down for awhile after his initial scream. I got him penciled in for the Grand Finale, we should have a back-up though...you never know, the old coot might have a coronary before his turn... that would be so typical... always thinking of himself first.



Glad we had that calf roping refresher course last week...
came in handy when Guy had a change of mind.
No worries... I got him all ready to go

You have not been very polite to your hostess...very naughty.......

so to assist her in her path, i will join in and make sure you behave!

Believe me, this is a necessary, life-giving, sobriety-fulfilling mission we are on here,

you should be thankful that you were ...choosen....um, invited to participate. I believe you all signed the waiver, so now you should just submit to the torture....do we need to say "pretty please" ?

I need to go oil my whip, I'll be watching you boys with a close eye....no funny business, got it? or else it's over the wall with you!

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

No doubt I have 99.9% of this forum wondering WTF is going on in this thread & what does it have to do with long term abstaining... am I right?? lol

If memory serves me correctly, this is the section for long term abstainers to share the tools they have found that works in their sobriety...
and for me, making new friends...sharing my experiences... having crazy fun along with times of quiet reflection is all part of my recovery process. Someone once told me "If you're not having fun while recovering, you're not doing it right!" And that is so true!!

There's something very special & unique about being with others that are afflicted with the same addiction as ourselves... we know what it's like, and can never judge, for we have been in their shoes. Long term abstainers have many things to offer those that are just starting out on their journey.. not only can we share our experience & advice, but more importantly I think, we are examples of the proof of how life can be so wonderful after we cleanse our body, minds & soul of our addiction. The new found joy we start experiencing is overwhelming... and so is the desire to pass on the message of hope & freedom.

The first week is by far, the hardest,.... that's when you have finally put your plans & desires to stop drinking into action! It's a time that we fight off the cravings & resist the routine of our addiction. The first week is HUGE! You said you wished you were where I am, at 8 months... well, I had to start out right where you are...we all do. But don't wish these months away... embrace every step of the way... rejoice in the new freedoms you start to experience...enjoy your new life as it starts to reveal itself to you!

Mooring? Oh.... maybe if Flyin' had been thinking that instead of how to parallel park the damn thing we wouldn't be in this mess.
Do we have to give the boat back already??? I was getting it all geared up to take IAD out on a little cruise.... I think he's wanting a lickin' taking a liking to us around here!.... :b&d:

The man who built the house had been rich. The house had beautiful stairways and three balconies. There was also a secret door. It led to the mirror room.

The mirror room was only about six feet by six feet. It was covered by mirrors?on the floor, on the walls, and on the ceiling. There was one stool in it, nailed to the floor.

Ned didn?t visit the mirror room very often. It was his secret, and he didn?t want his parents to know about it. They might turn it into another kind of room.

He would go there for about 15 minutes at a time. He sat looking for the end of the endless line of Neds. He looked until his eyes grew tired. Then he would go to his bedroom and watch the ocean.

One afternoon, Ned was sitting on the stool. He was looking down the line of Neds. Suddenly, he noticed something moving toward him. It came closer & closer.
It was a tiny dot, coming right for him. The dot grew. Then he could see arms and legs. It turned into a man, walking down the lines of Neds. The man grew life-sized.

The man stopped, across from Ned, on the other side of the glass. He sat down where the other Ned was supposed to be. He looked at Ned with a strange smile.

?Hello, Ned,? he said. ?How are you? You?re probably wondering what I?m doing here. Well, I?m a business man. I do business with my friend back there.? He pointed in the direction that he had come from. ?Maybe you?d like to hear a story.?
Ned looked at the man with wide eyes. The man cleared his throat, and began.

?Once there was a boy. He lived right by the sea. One room of his house was covered with mirrors. The mirror room was his secret. He loved to come and sit in it. One day a man came through the mirrors. He said that he would tell the boy a story. The story was this:
?Once there was a boy who had a secret room. It was covered with mirrors. The boy was sitting in the mirror room one day. A man came through the mirrors and told the boy a story. The story was this:
?A boy sat in his secret mirror room. A man came through the mirrors. He told the boy a story that went like this:
?Once a boy sat in a mirror room. A man came through the mirror and told him a story. It went like this?.?

After searching all night, Ned?s parents called the police. They broke through the wall. They found thousands and thousands of Neds, in little pieces, twinkling in the light.

Hi
hope you are feeling better A. That story I can relate to, too many Neds. Close your eyes imagine a cruise on a beautiful sparkling ocean where the sea sparkles like diamonds and then imagine a big screeching sound as your sister parks the boat again on a rock. I do believe you guys need a lesson in seawoman ship.
Unfortunatley cant help have to run took the day off work going sailing.

All the best take care

Where's Chuck??


http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k188/teigan_2006/Real%20Life/my%20projects/IMGP1034.jpg

Back in the 70's in English class, we were given a small collection of short stories that were written by other middle school students in the U.S. The story "Mosaic" captivated me from the first time I read it. I was amazed at the writing skill & imagination that a person of that age possessed... and have saved this story for about 30 years. Several years ago I made a calligraphy project from part of his story. I've been planning on making a book out of glass & mirror with the entire story to go along with the sculpture.
I have always wondered what became of Charles... did he put his talent towards a writing career?? Maybe he is a well-known writer.... I wonder. I would love to find this person, and let them know how their story written so many years ago has been so cherished... and even inspired art projects. I do have his last name, but didn't want to put it out on a public forum... if anyone is interested in helping me "find Chuck".... please pm me... thanks.

Return of the Prodigal

Hello everybody,

Back after quite sometime. Last posted on all fools' day. Great that Angel hadn't fallen for my Trojan horse post of capitulation on first of April and has been continuing on her merry ways. Had a hilarious time reading the posts of the last ten days in this thread and nice that a lot friends have joined in on the thousand mile journey.
After coming across Angel?s delusion of causing me grievious injury, I again itch to get into the ring, but yes now realise the futility of taking up cudgels against the master at present , more so because I post so infrequently. The Devine Boon and the fortification of Citadel Angelville seem to have temporarily scared the wits out of the normally unflappable Doubter.

Captnjack, wonderful to meet you on the Forum and three cheers for being alcoholfree for a week:applaud:. This is an awesome achievement as the first few days are the toughest. Slowly, our natural coping mechanisms take over and the craves ease out gradually. Be on the thread and surely beating booze will be relatively less difficult. By the way are you Hemingway's Old Man? The way you bring the sea to life, you sure must be?
And yes Captnjack, the dictionary that I digested as a kid had a hard time coming out of its normally-designated orifice, and occasionally finds recourse through my digits?:cool:
Seriously, I am not a native English speaker and so sometimes ( truthfully, more often than not), my posts appear stilted.

Flyinghigh! Great to read your posts. You would have made a worthy opponent to Angel, but AngeltheDeviousDemonWhoKnowsWhatsGoodforHer has already enlisted you on to her side. Our loss, but DoubterTheLionhearted doesn?t lose hope easily..still have plans on engineering your defection, especially now that enough guys have converged on to the thread.
? And coming from the developing world and seeing what damage alcohol can wreck on the deprived, I fully agree with your post on bringing back prohibition.

Hello cmhguy, hippie37, IAD and other regulars on this thread. Hope to move forward with all of you in this quest for sobriety. With guys like you around, I feel a little bit safer on this ultrafeminist thread..
Hippie, you had a great post in ?The Cosmic Perspective?:goodjob: and having a nascent interest in spirituality, would like to exchange thoughts. And it was nicely balanced with an even more thought provoking thread ?Hot Topic-?? Such insight,wow..:wd:
Thanks all for listening..And Angel, the field is again left open, bring on the trebuchet, the catapult & the fireworks?DevilmaycareDoubter?s all warmed up and running..

Ah yes.... been there myself Capt'n.... many a time... even now, cravings surface once in a while....but not as frequently.
My friend, you have it EXACTLY right!!!....... "I will not drink!!!!"....
THAT is the key to your success right there in those words "I will not drink". Right from the start, my self talk has always been "no matter what life throws at me... no matter how I feel...no matter how much I may want one...no matter what..... "I WILL NOT DRINK".
I remember a couple of months ago I was having a tough time one night... tried to get in touch with one of my online friends, but they weren't around. The next day I saw an email from them asking if I was sober. Of course I'm sober silly!!.... just because I rant, rave & cry doesn't mean that I'm going to have a drink!! LOL
I have made up my mind, drinking is no longer an option for me... although there are times when I want one so bad, it's not going to happen... that is a personal promise I have made to myself. I'm old enough & have gone through enough to know how important these promises are that we make to ourselves... to go back on my word to the person that needs me the most.... the one that I neglected for so many years.....the one that I broke so many promises to... is something I couldn't live with now.

Always remember.... A Craving Is NOT a Command

Just wanted to say hello and If things are going all right,

Truth to tell Captn, sisters on this thread are extremely supportive and a large part of the credit for my sobriety goes to the princess of this thread who has been keeping me on my toes.

And I am not afraid of being dead on this thread, far from it...this banter is getting my creative juices flowing and giving me a high more enjoyable than booze ever could...

excerpt from

The Red Shoe Diary

It was an eventful day for the red shoes...it began simply with the fact that the first generation now had to go in for some minor surgery.

Upon arriving at a well-known physician in the healing art of shoes...it was found that the door was locked & a big CLOSED sign hung in the store window. The Lady of the Red Shoes threw up her arms in disgust at where there could be found another ER for her little darlin's.

A man sitting on a park bench nearby noticed the Lady in distress & came over to comfort her. He was very taken by her shoes, and even more intrigued that the shoes on her feet also matched the ailing shoes in her satchel. He examined the shoes very thoroughly & a discussion in great length began over the heritage of said shoes. Another man wearing a bright red sweater which matched the shoes walked up & now became quite interested in the red shoe saga and joined in the discussion. The Lady of the Red Shoes told them her tale of searching the globe for more siblings of this fine family.....the infamous http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k188/teigan_2006/shoes%20and%20things/golfclap.jpg ...and more. After the entire story was told, the 3 of them parted ways, and the Lady of the Red Shoes knew that the magical powers of her soles had once again entranced new admirers.

She recalled only days earlier a small girl child of only 7 came up to her & said how she loved her red shoes. "Ahhhh....another Lady of Red Shoes in waiting" she cooed to herself.

A new physician of skill was found later that day, but not before 2 others were summoned & did not pass the qualifications. The Lady of the Red Shoes looked sad at leaving her little ones behind with strangers. The staff & surgeons which were all gathered around the patient reassured the Lady that they would take extra special care & would return them to her in better health to live another day of being the sassy little red shoes they have always been.

happy bday


Happy Feet Days to you and your shoes.
I know that they are an essential support in carrying me through some tough days. I'm sure you, Angel , also find true comfort in their beauty and support. Do you think the boys that visit us have a fetish, such as shoes, or boats for that matter? Boys...since you've all run away hiding..how about an easy task for you? What's your vice that helps you through the day?

I think my shoe day was more a Bon Voyage than a Celebration, Flyin.
Yes, I think you're right...they have all run away. I put out a trail of duct tape, and couldn't get either Guy or tlrgs to take the bait. Captn seems to have disappeared just like IAD... and Doubter has seemed to have lost his fighting spirit.

Alas, I think it might be time to pack things up and go back where I came from.
I'll haul the crate out from storage and you & I can start dismantling D.B. later. Too bad we didn't get to break her in properly.... maybe next time.

I would like to see him flinged while reciting one of my favorite poems " The Song of the Ancient Mariner" the non abriged (short) version. Can this be arranged . ITS so good to be back in the dungeon of pain :l.
Love always Captn.
