    Sounds like exciting times for the son and daughter-in-law @Jude58, is it their first? No need for wine, you have lots of time to go to as many meetings as you want!
    Quitting and staying quit isn't easy, its learning a whole new way of thinking. It's 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.

    Congrats, Jude. Sounds like your meetings are really strengthening those abstinence muscles!

    Headed to see SIL for the long weekend. This visit will include me setting up her new laptop and any other tech stuff that needs doing. No wine allowed! I'll take another.

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

    @abcowboy, this is their second child; they also have a three year old daughter. Lots of excitement in the house right now for sure! I wish that I could be there but having a house full of critters keeps me from going.

    The meetings are going well, but sometimes I can't be there in person, so I attempted a zoom meeting. It's better to be in a roomful of people, but the online meetings are definitely more convenient. Either way, it seems to be working for me, as the cravings are farther and farther apart, and my life is getting better with each passing day.

    Looking forward to another 24...

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

    Jude, I am so glad those meetings are helping you so much. I think it would help me too, but yet I can't seem to make myself try it. The things that are holding me back a the same things that have always been stumbling blocks for me. The first is fear that anonymity will be breached. Also, fear that my family and friends would find out. I have kept my issues with alcohol hidden as much as possible. The only person who knows the truth is Mr. D. Then, there is just the practical aspect of distance and times not being convenient. I know that being with people face to face would be really valuable but I just can't overcome the cons.

    I'm grateful I have you all.

    24 more please and thank you.

    Good morning cafe. Dill, I feel the exact same. All is hidden and shameful. Ugh. I am also very thankful for this group and the privacy that it offers. We are currently now driving back home this morning from a wonderful week with some of our family. Mr. R. Has a few medical issues and seeing the doctor today thus we are coming back early. Wishing everyone a great weekend. 24 more please and thank you.
