      Thank you all for the AF drinks suggestions

I actually look so forward to this drink, almost as much as I used to look forward to a drinks . It was so fun to just say, " I like the non-booze drinks, where have they gone?
      I sort of second-guessed this when you said it yesterday, Kensho, and experimented last night but with raspberries. I crushed them in a conical sieve and gently poured the ginger-beer through...it tasted great but needed something added so I'll try adding a touch of lime tonight...and I'll also try it with strawberries...It was VERY pink!!!
      AF since 6 Jan 2018
      Yesterday I did not drink, but that day is gone... Today I know I will not drink... Tomorrow can go look after itself for now, I'll deal with that after midnight! ODAAT (One day at a time)

      Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. but it is, perhaps, nearing the end of the beginning of my fight back with Al (apologies to Sir Winston Churchill)

      Happy Halloween,

      Pav, it's like that everywhere! More adult parties than kiddie ones. On Halloween in our neighborhood, the adults walk the children around, and almost all have a beer in their hand or something alcoholic in a cup. But then again, they probably only drink one or two. That would set me off on a binge as it always has. Hope you feel better.

      Kensho, I like that...Keep focused on the good in life. We have a lot, and we have to choose to see it.

      Happy Birthday, Byrdie! Have a great day.

      Stay safe on this Halloween.
      Sometimes what you're most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.

      Happy Birthday my dear friend!
      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 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.

      Oh my gosh, thank you all so much, my fellow Halloweeners! I am so thankful for this place and for my sobriety and I could NOT have done it without MWO. Of all the gifts I have ever recieved, sobriety is the best. THANK YOU for the warm wishes, almost takes the sting out of the RO-BO call I have to do this afternoon, UGG!

      Have a great day, we are going next door for a byrd day dinner with the neighbors so that will be fun. Last year, I was the only one who dressed up, so that was a little awkward.....Hugs to all and THANK YOU!!! Byrdie

      Happy Birthday Byrdie!!! I love that you dressed up for last year's dinner - are you going to do so again this year? I vote yes! Have a fantastic celebration and wake up tomorrow un-hung

      Justme - Great job tackling smoking as well as drinking. I understand that quitting cigs is hard at first and then you really start to feel and see the benefits. A couple of friends of mine recently quit and they're using an app that shows every day the benefits (health improvements, money saved, aspects of life enjoyed) you experience with each additional day. I think the app is called "Quit It" although I'm sure there are several.

      Jvo - Fantastic to hear the fundraiser was so successful. Sounds like you navigated it well too.

      Kensho - I love that you got the restaurant to make your favorite AF drink. Hopefully they'll put it back on the menu.

      Pav - Adult drinking on Halloween is crazy here too. Seems to have become more of an adult holiday than one for kids in some ways. When I realized a month or so ago that my Day 100 was going to fall on Halloween, I was extra-pleased to know I'd have a much healthier way to celebrate this year.

      NS - Love the post re: Perfect Day One. Thanks for sharing the link.

      Andrea - Congrats on deciding to quit. As others have said, setting a quit date so far in the future would never have worked for me, but we're all different. What I do know is fairly universal is that Al is tricky and sneaky, and it will fight for you to keep it in your life anyway that it can. Some folks need a few days to taper before quitting cold turkey just to minimize withdrawal, which can be life-threatening in severe cases. The vast majority of the time, I believe, the best day to quit is TODAY. Regardless of how you proceed, keep us posted on your progress and tuck yourself in here for support.

    11. Thanks Justme Again, Byrdlady thanked for this post

      Hey nesters
      I'm back and very very determined. A tragedy nearly happened that shook me up so much that I feel more determined than ever to stop being stupid.
      Endangering myself is dumb enough, but this latest thing threatened the safety of my daughter and grandddaughter. This cannot happen.
      SO.... 2 weeks yesterday, a decent supply of antabuse, and exercising daily. And happy to be back here

      So glad to see you with 2 weeks under your belt, Ann Carolina. I'm so sorry about what happened, but if it serves to help us finally get on track then it will not have happened in vain. Welcome back, stay close and we will be right here with you! Hugs, Byrdie
