    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    You bring up an interesting point @Rava, one I've been thinking about since I read it. I know I've often said that it would ne nice to have a cold beer on a hot day, or a glass of wine with a good meal but is that what I really miss, or is it the buzz I get from having a few drinks? Or is it because I want to feel like I "fit in", I don't want to be the person who can't have a drink when everyone else is drinking? I think the important thing for me to always remember is that it doesn't matter why I want to have that drink, I know I can't. Accept that and quit thinking about having that drink...

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Another 24 hours please &,thank you.

    The barbecue did a great job of cooking rib eyes exactly as we like them - medium rare. I tried a local butcher shop yesterday and while the steaks were great, the price was double what I used to pay before moving to Calgary. Weíre going to buy a small freezer so we can split a side of beef, purchased from the butcher I dealt with in our small town, with our son and dil.

    Reading the comments about wine box spout sipping brought a smile. The thing is, I donít recall having done that but I bet I did!

    Rava, I donít think any of us can trust our brains. The beast is always there, waiting for us to slip. We know that we canít trust ourselves when we say ďJust one drink canít hurtĒ. We know it doesnít stops at one.

    Weíre booked to have our second vaccine on the 22nd. The pharmacy where we had our first shot doesnít know when/if theyíll be receiving Moderna so I booked appointments through Alberta Health and even they only have 1 site offering Moderna. Because Mrs QWís immune system is compromised, we were advised not to mix vaccines.

    Off for a walk in the sunshine. Have a great af Saturday everyone.

    Another one down. Love waking up clear headed.

    Driving to Seattle today for my niece's baby shower. It's over and back so 5 hours of driving today. I see coffee in my future!

    I'll gladly take another 24.

    Well done @Ginger999. I am starting today with a renewed sense of commitment. I WILL NOT drink today.

    Happy Saturday cafe friends. It's hot and muggy here and I have a yard to mow.

    24 for me please and thanks.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    I always drank for the buzz.....nothing more. Pretty silly, because those fleeting moments of euphoria only lasted a few moments, and then it turned into oblivion, followed by feelings of despair, and a crushing hangover the next day. Not worth it!

    The thing that I love about this group is that you all know exactly how I feel. Our minds have all been in that dark place where alcohol can lead us. We all know about the daily struggles to stay sober, something that "normal" people have no clue about. I'm truly grateful for my friends here at MWO, especially for your support and understanding when one of us relapses. I just wanted to thank you all for being here.

    Asking for another 24 for all of us!
