      First one in the Nest. lol. Good idea renewal, now you don't have to change the thread every month. I hope that u and all of the other Newbies are well. I finally got a decent night's sleep last night. I was going nuts with sleep deprivation and lack of appetite. Things are, hopefully, turning around. Day 24 for me. Aside from the above issues, I am doing very well. Over three weeks without a beer has made me lose 5 pounds without even trying. How sweet is that!! My family has commented on how much better I look. They told me, which I knew, but wouldn't admit it, that I was all puffy and bloated looking before. I felt so uncomfortable like that. Have to work today 3-11, in a job that I do not love. If I was drinking, I would certainly blow it off, drink, and worry about losing my job. So glad that I do Not have to go there today. Welcome to our new thread all. I really look forward to reading all of your posts. You Can Beat Alcohol One Day at a Time. Love to all who visit.

      Why did we switch treads??

      Why the switch? Is it just a new name?

      Renewal --- thank you for starting this new thread. I just found this site about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I look forward to many AF days now that I know where I can turn to for encouragement and support. I'm doing this privately ... haven't even told hubby about my attempt (although I know he'll be more than happy to have me stop or at least moderate my drinking) .... Moderation is what I strive for, but I understand after reading through some threads, that it's possible I may have to go AF. Look forward to my future!:new:

      Seems I need help rounding up the newbies

      Hi all
      so glad u are here. I have been trying to bring this thread back to life. How's it going Renewal? Don't believe that I told you about the Northeast meetup. There are 10 of us from MWO who are meeting in Boston on Saturday. I am so psyched!!! I can't believe that I will actually be meeting people from this site. Well, on day 25 today. Funny, it will be 29 days, God willing, when I meet the gang from here. Still not sleeping great, but it is getting better. Also having some gastrointestinal probs. Not sure if it's all the supps/vits. or what. Hopefully, these issues will pass. I felt a hell of alot worse when I was drinking. Maybe my body is just still in shock or could be that I am extremely stressed out do to underemployment, leading to huge financial probs. for me. On the upside, I have opportunities this week for two permanent jobs, with Health Insurance, Whoo Hoo. I will keep you all posted. Best wishes to all today to remain AF or Mod.:l

      That's fantastic seacailin....what a great trip that'll be....actually putting a few names to faces....and seeing in person, people who offer such wonderful support. I am envious and hope you have a wonderful time. Also, good luck on the job interviews this week. New day, yes you may be doing this 'privately', but never feel you are doing it alone. Use us all for help and support when you need it, as that's why we're here.....people helping people.....what a concept, eh........have a fantastic day my friends.

      Hi All,

      I am new. I have posted a tiny bit but mostly reading the threads and advice. This is what has kept me AF for 21 days now. I LOVE it here. It is so helpful and supportive. It is what helps me most. Thank you all.

      Hello and welcome one2many and startingover....this is a wonderful place to be. I strongly encourage you to take a look at the 'Newbies unite June 08' thread to get a better feel. I just changed over to this thread a couple days ago.......please feel free to tell us a little more about yourself. We are here to help you in any way we can. I need to leave for work now (I work evenings), but again, welcome to our family.

      Good Morning to all ---- starting day 3 AF.... but it will be a Mod day for me ... having dinner with my bridge group, so 1 glass of wine will be in order. No fear of drinking more, as I need to have my brain functioning for the game and also I have to drive home. Problem used to be (and it will be another test tonight) -- is that I would restrain myself while out, knowing I had to drive home, but then "reward" myself when I got home with a few nightcaps. Not tonight --- I will come here if I feel that need. Nice to have a plan to help deal with it. Thanks for being here everyone.
