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

      “Recovery is not simple abstinence. It’s about healing the brain, remembering how to feel, learning how to make good decisions, becoming the kind of person who can engage in healthy relationships, cultivating the willingness to accept help from others, daring to be honest, and opening up to doing.” ~ Debra Jay

      As we all know, recovery is a whole lot more than abstinence. It's about accepting the entire concept of sobriety, and embracing it. I think that in my recent relapse, I let my obsessive thoughts about drinking get the better of me. I was unable to stand back and see the whole picture, where everything looked bright and new. Alcohol keeps trying to pull me back down into that tunnel of darkness, but I refuse to give up.

      Asking for another 24please and thank you very much!

      Where you at Mr. V?

      Sorry for the late check in. Woke up to the website I manage for a pet rescue offline. Back up but shaky. Have some work to do later. Wait..... aren't I retired? As I talked to a support person (sounded about 12 years old), I thought, this dinosaur is getting too old for this!

      But I'll take another 24 please and thank you!

      @Jude58 thank you for the quote and reflection. Attitude is everything. We have to keep at this and keep moving forward in our lives.

      Wow @Ginger999, I'm impressed that you manage a website. Did you start that up after you retired or is it something you've done for a long while? Is it paid or volunteer work?

      Still batching it @abcowboy? We woke up to a layer of snow on the ground today too. Not deep but definitely a blanket of the white stuff. The cows looked miffed. We just turned them into a green pasture a couple days ago and now the ground is white instead. They are not laughing!

      24 more, please and thank you.

      Where are you @Mr Vervill? Everything ok?
      Dill

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

      @dill, I worked for technology services at our college but didn't start this volunteer work until I retired in 2012. It was a way to give back to a great cause.

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      A very late check in for me. I’m just home from a youth justice meeting where we dealt with a young man who did something stupid and got caught. By successfully completing the consequences he was given, he’ll avoid having a criminal record. Thanks in part to supportive parents, I think he’ll do well.

      Ginger, I’m envious of those who understand technical stuff and volunteer to help others. Funny, as I was fighting with my computer today didn’t I get a call from someone with a very thick accent who said he was from Microsoft and could help with my computer. Knowing this was a scam, I suggested we just cut to the chase and asked if he wanted my credit card number. ‘Visa or MasterCard” ? he replied. Now I was born at night but it wasn’t last night!

      Hope everyone had a great af Wednesday.

      "What fascinates me about addiction and obsessive behavior is that people would choose an altered state of consciousness that's toxic and ostensibly destroys most aspects of your normal life, because for a brief moment you feel okay. "~Moby

      27F with light snow this morning. I love the quiet that a fresh snowfall brings...

      QW...because of you and others, the young man that you mentioned, will be given a second chance, and my hat goes off to you!

      Where are you Mr. V? Miss your posts.....

      Another 24 please and thank you very much!

      5:45am in Alberta, 24 more please, and thanks...

      Cool, clear, and crisp out there this morning. Hank had a case of the "puppy zoomies" in the soft fresh fallen snow lol

      In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:

      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 right now. 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.

      Bubba got home Tuesday afternoon @dill. The two boys were more than happy to have her back!

      Ya Mr V, where did you get to?

      Good quote this morning Jude! Funny how I preferred to live my life in an alcohol haze rather than clear headed like I do now! But, that's addiction for you....

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      I find that our youth justice (restorative justice) efforts most often have positive results as evidenced by the low rate of recidivism. The young man we dealt with last evening shook hands with our committee members after the hearing and thanked us. I’m confident he’ll complete his consequences and will not see the inside of a courtroom again!

      Cold here too Cowboy but a Chinook must be on the way as it warms up to above freezing tomorrow. Glad you and Hank have Bubba home with you!

      Hope everyone has a great Thursday, af.
