      Anyone in the First Week of Their Unpteenth Quit?

      Hi SS - no longer in my first week, but can so understand the umpteenth quit - I am so hoping, and hanging on to, that this might just be my last quit - would love to join in, even though I don't fit the qualifications!:H

      Yes, yes, yes,... you know you are welcome. I just want it to be those of us who are fed up with ourselves teetering back and forth between resolve and moderation.

      Well we've got the beginnings of our little sober crew. I know it's early but imagine what a summer we'll have and we'll remember it all!!

      I will be coming here more than daily to check in and be accountable to you all. Let's face it, we've all tried to believe that we can moderate. We've all thought we were doing great moderating but as we all know, we either get shit-faced one night or have a gradual increase in amount and/or frequency that we inevitably end up hiding for a while, then coming back here with our tail between our legs.

      I have lots of exciting stuff happening in my life to be joyful and sober for. We are so lucky to have the mentors around and the tools we need in the toolbox.

      Don't hesitate to PM me if you need some one on one. I am great at giving advice but not so great at following my own.

      Have a sober Friday, everyone. I will be going to my sister's hotel room (she is visiting from out of town for my daughter's baby shower) and swimming in her hotel pool dead sober!!

      Sober Soul ~ although it may be early to be thinking of summer - I think it's a great idea to imagine & look forward to all the good days ahead!

      I have had my tail between my legs way too many times, and very often avoid MWO after a relapse because I am so humiliated... I, too, am willing to PM with anyone who may need to talk... I have found in the past that some of my best help on this sight came through in a personal PM....And I get excited when I see that little envelope "blinking" when I log on

      Have a great weekend everyone! Stay strong and check in on our thread... I am excited to take this journey & make some new friends who understand exactly where I am ... :l

      SS - I have decided that I just chose to take the long road, and they say that slowly but surely wins the race!!!
      As long as we keep trying, we will get there.
      Spirit - I think I worked out that avoiding MWO was only hurting me, and it was all about my pride (all about me isn't it) - coming here, and being honest has kept me straight...
      I am seeing so many stories about those who manage to get some good AF time and then let it go - this is first time I have managed some real AF time, and will be looking as to how to hang on to it - no more yoyo!

      Talk about embarrassing, try this: Falling off the wagon after 2+ years sober and making a drunk call to (guess who? drum roll...) BYRDIE of all people! :H I can laugh now but I was mortified at the time. And I have to say she was very gracious and loving towards me... :l

      Glad to have you on board Nora... same to the rest of you. Everyone was sipping wine in my sister's lovely Chateau in the hills of Quebec except moi tonight. I was happily sipping water. Always do well at the beginning. It's in a week or two that the little creepy monkey starts hanging out on my shoulder. This time he'll get a back hand.

      Hi, Everyone:

      Love this group! I was listening to the podcast NoSugar posted - it seems that the average time to get sober is 5 - 8 years? Something like that. A long time. The good news is we all keep coming back. My fits and starts happened when I was lurking here, too afraid to post because I was so sure I was going to be the one to be able to moderate. Hah.

      Look forward to spending a sober summer with you all...
