      Re: G man the comeback!

      Top of the thursday morning to you pilgrim.

      Wow, thanks everyone for your congrat's and kind words. I appreciate you taking some of your precious time to post here. You are all so different and amazing people in your own right. We are different, and we are the same.

      I started this thread in January 2nd 2015 with the intention of recording my progress, some journaling/writing out my thoughts, and above all reaching a year AF to infinity.....It's taken this long to get one year under my belt. Longer though, as my last 2.5. yr AF stint ended around April 2011. 8 years of struggle. However, since i came to this site, my boozing has been far more mindful and not as out of control and carefree as it was. There's been more off time than on time these last 11 years. A few months AF here, a few there over recent years. Whilst this harm minimisation approach (purely by accident) hasn't been a negative thing, my life and dreams haven't been able to be fully realised or actioned.

      Now, today i feel really good. I see there are no limits. Only what i put in front of myself. It's all in my head. i like this old chestnut - If i think i can't i'm right. If i think i can i'm right.

      Do something you love today no matter where your head is at. Have some fun. The way forward doesn't have to be a 24/7 struggle. There are no challenges, only opportunities. Thinking positive is SO important. Work out how to keep your mind positive. Read our toolbox. Post it notes, people, actions, you tube inspirations, instagram sober blogs, Holly Whittakers blog, Tommy Rosen/recovery 2.0, This naked mind blog, Motivational movies. Start the day with a head and emotion check. Tweak yourself where necessary. Deal with what you need to so you remove worry, and leave trivia behind. Just some ideas that i've seen are helpful to me and many others.

      Holy Burpin burger eatin Buddhas! It's Day 366!

      Git it.

      It’s like we’re in a holding pattern when we’re doing stops & starts, harm reduction, moderation...we just can’t move forward.
      I’m so proud of you that you are moving forward now! You finally have a long quit back...and in another year & a half will surpass the last one!
      You have the extra major challenge of being in the boozy music business, and performing in bars & party scenes too - so WELL DONE, Guitarista!

      Top of the saturday morning pardners!

      Day 368! Into year 2. Right on homes. Yu feelin me?

      Great to play last night. It was a busy evening. My bandmate reckons i look like a typical man of the 1940's or 50's in appearance and character, as in post war style of old fashioned values guy. Then he started to compare me to his father and grandfather which was indeed a compliment but crikey, hang on buddy, i still think i'm 30! It had me a little paranoid for the rest of the gig. .....'hey, do i look OLD in this?' lol. He kinda saved himself by adding i had a bit of that older style European grace of a bloke who'd been around the block, like those film noir movie stars with a smoke hanging out of yer mouth. Er, i think that was a compliment. It was so cool to be out and about with different people at a different gig. You meet all sorts of folk. Above all, it's always an honour and delight to be asked to play my guitar somewhere. This morning i'm reminding myself of gratitude. Today i am grateful.

      Grateful also to be having lunch with 2 glamours today, Ava and Steady. Wowza! This will be fun. They'd better be bearing gifts for my 1 year anni!

      Do something you love today pardner. Go git it.
