    Hi all!

    Off to bed sober this late Friday night/ Saturday morning!

    Hillside, your experience, your advice and your honesty about still battling those demons is invaluable. Please keep visiting, you know how much it helps.


    Choochie, well done on day 39, a fantastic achievement! Allthough you are a relative newbie, you have such a wonderful attitude and your posts are so honest and helpful, please, keep posting here!

    Madmans, I am so definitely on! I feel energised, positive and ready. Thinking about you and the weekend you have to face, sending hope, strength and positive vibes.

    To all of you, ODAT, every minute every hour every ten minutes..........like Hillside said, the urges go, like the waves, surf them! :l

    Hillside, I'm just now seeing your posts - maybe you've been on different threads. I sure hope that you'll continue because your wisdom is helping us tremendously. You are thoughtful and have a way of inspiring me (and I think others). Thank you for taking the time to relate your experiences.

    FB - thanks for your comment. I will definitely continue to post. It makes me feel good if I can say something to help others. I love the symbiotic nature of MWO - we help ourselves at the same time. MWO is like therapy for me. Posting helps me stay grounded and clear on what I'm doing. And, reading of others' struggling to get sober reminds me of what I don't want to go back to. I tried moderating for a long time and it was absolutely futile. So, I don't ever want to go back to that dark place of struggling. The emotional battle - just trying something new every day - the ever-constant bargaining with myself, only to fail at 5pm and crack open another bottle. Such a drag!! Freedom from being dependent, now that's where it's at. No more figuring out how to make sure I was able to get my fix at 5. The lengths I would go to are pretty humorous, in hindsight!

    Madmans, Nellie, Sam, and anyone who happens along today, have a wonderful AF day!

    Thank's hillsidetime and Choochie . one of things i noticed over the weekend away with my friend's was the amount of drink and how drunk they( i before) would get . we are all mid 30 to 40 and it was like watching kid's . they drank from 7pm friday night to 6 am sat up again 9am, breakfast, walk and back drinking 11-30 am for most of the day, some sleep and then back out that night . was'nt with them last night but if i had been drinking over the weekend like that you can be sure i would have had a six pack just to get to sleep

    Madmans - whew you and your buds make the rest of us look like schoolkids! Ya gotta ask yourself, what living creature tries to whack himself like humans? Makes you wonder just how evolved we really are??

    FB - you are sounding wonderfully strong - so happy that you and Madmans are hanging in there.:l

    Hillside - Hi - hope you're having a good day.

    All you other newbies who happen along, check in, say hi and let us know if we can help.
