      Re: April Army Thread 2019

      If I was new and came here I'd feel like I didn't have a place tbh, nearly everyone is going on years sober which is awesome but most of our threads are just chatting about the weather,life, family etc,just seems to be no discussion of recovery and I think that's how the new people feel(just my opinion of course) have a great day all
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Off the table no MATTER what.

      Re: April Army Thread 2019

      Perhaps every day we should tell how awful, unmanageable, life-threatening every day was for us, our spouse and our children. Its only over the last years of sobriety I've become honest with Mr JC, my adult children and a few real life friends how really bad.
      The last of months of my drinking were packed with suicidal thoughts.........I had reached my bottom.
      We don't have to drink on any urge, we don't have to drink on something we espy to be unmanageable.

      With MWO I read the humdrum, the ordinariness of the day, the living sober.........I learnt that from some of the greats Doggygirl, Lav, KateH that living sober was possible.
      Relasping members and new members ..........and I've greeted a few over the years and chased them down when they've buggered off but I can't physically pick the up put them in front of their lap-top and make them post.
      Its called My Way Out for a reason and this is MY way out.
      Ask me a question and you'll get the truth, ask me advice and I'll try my best. I put my sobriety first, second and third and believe me my family are delighted.

      Re: April Army Thread 2019

      I took a look at SoberRecovery, @abcowboy. Thanks for all the information. And what is this about?
      But just recently I've went to proboards and started putting another forum together.



      SR is huge and busy but I kind of like it - it reminds me of what MWO was like when I first joined (although even bigger). I didn't open most MWO threads back in those days - there were so many (and I thought the ARMY was for enlisted people ). It would be possible to make SR "smaller" with dedicated threads.

      So, here's the deal - if we ever wake up one morning to find MWO gone, I'll start a thread on SR called "MWO" and would be happy to have any of you join me .

      @starty, I used this on rocks, cement cracks, along fences where I don't mind killing grass, etc.: 1 gallon white vinegar, 2 cups Epsom salts, 1/4 cup Dawn dishwashing detergent. Mix it up, put in in a container with a pump (or spray bottle for small areas). It works and dogs are not interested in the least.

      I like a plan. Good one NS. Rustop, this is the backup
      As much as I dont like the idea or effort of change, I agree with all the good points made here today, especially what you said @paulywogg, it must be very daunting for new people, we all need to connect with someone.

      I was sick posting on day 1. I was afraid of failing and succeeding in equal measures. Success meant that I would never drink again and that was too much for my brain to handle.
      Then there was the guilt of letting people here down and then the fear of anyone I knew finding out my secrets, now that I posted them on the interweb!

      Its a big step.

      Deal @NoSugar,I would join you over there in the event MWO shuts down,I honestly don't think that would happen tho cuz they've worked hard to get the funds to keep it going,like Jackie said we can't force new members to post,or force old members to return,let's just keep our posting up to keep it somewhat alive and helpful

      Re: April Army Thread 2019

      I agree with @paulywogg and @starty there is little discussion about alcohol.
      When I joined - yes there was drama, rows etc but as I've said before it was just the colourful array of posters that we had. I know many disagree with me on liking the dramas but I think I'm a big girl now and can handle the occasional curse word or row..
      When I logged on in those days I looked forward to what would be going on. Everyday hum drum sober living inspired me. Drunken rows also made me cringe but want to get sober.... It just worked.
      Less than sober posts were the norm but I'm sure many a sober life was forged after reading their drunken ranting illogical post next day.

      Also as I've also said before and is only imho - maybe MWO has become too PC and unaccepting of oddballs. We have become TOO CLEAN & SOBER
      Benji ....
      Doing it my way

      .... the joy of being sober never gets old !!

      Thats interesting JC. I have not been that honest yet. I have only just told one of my closest friends that I havnt drank since 2015. Family and friends know I dont drink but I never explained why.
      I can fool myself into explaining why I haven't, but the truth is, I wanted a way out if I needed it. I think Im still holding onto that.

      Is everyone else here more honest with friends and family? I know you are JC..

      If you posted more, they would come in their droves. No pressure.
