    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.

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

    Yes, life is better without booze, Jude! Still I find there are moments of struggle. Yesterday for instance, I had just finished mowing. I was sitting in the bench swing in the shade when a memory popped into my head of times years ago when I would sit in that swing with a glass of wine in the afternoon. It was such a clear memory it startled me! After that I became agitated and well, you know the feelings... Mr. D came along and sat next to me and after a while he said, "Wonder what time it is." I didn't have to look at my phone. I knew. "Four o'clock."

    But the hour came and went and I am glad to be waking up today with a clear head and no regrets!

    Glad you had a good time with your son over the weekend, BigAl!

    24 more please and thank you.
    Dill

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Dill, it’s amazing we know when it’s 4 o’clock. I know when it’s Wednesday because that’s when my former liquor store advertised their sale items. I haven’t subscribed to that paper in 5 years and have been af for three years.

    I stayed up past bedtime last night watching hockey so a nap is definitely in my plan for today.

    As Jude says, Life is so much better without booze!

    Have a great Monday everyone, af of course.

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

    Dill, I hear you about how drinking memories can suddenly appear out of nowhere. It's strange how our minds trick is into remembering the pleasant aspect of drinking; you know, the pleasant buzz after a couple of glasses of wine. We seem to forget the hangovers, lack of motivation, and wasted days. The warm weather always seems to awaken the cravings within me, and I have to be extra vigilant. Four o'clock began to come earlier and it wasn't unheard of for me to start my day with a glass or two (or 4) of wine. My Dr. once told me that no amount of alcohol was safe for me, as my liver enzymes were becoming elevated. That's when it really hit me. This shit could kill me! Anyway, I plan to meander my way through another booze free day, and I wish the same for all of my friends here at the cafe! We can do this!

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

    Good Tuesday morning Cafe friends. Jude, I hear ya about the wine. When I was drinking the hardest it was vodka then I thought by moving to wine I was less addicted and it would be less destructive. LOL what a joke. I always seem to forget when drinking about that critical period after the initial buzz starts wearing off. That’s when things go downhill. Trying to catch that buzz again leads me down a rabbit hole. By eliminating that initial drink is the key to solving this stupid issue. I am drinking coffee feeling great this morning instead of nursing a hangover. For this I am grateful. Wishing everyone a sober day. Another 24 for me please and thank you…
