    Pauly, that's a good one, Don't drink-its gross. Haha, yes it is Gross. I mean the first drink is glorious and then it is a steep slide into grossness. If only any one of us could stop at one drink. One drink? What's the point? That is what I always thought.
    Life, you are doing so well. Keep coming here, I am glad posting everyday is helping you. It gets easier for sure.Thank you for the well wishes for my weekend.

    It sure is nice Pav, NS, Ava, G, everyone, not to be stuck in that battle of trying to moderate. I remember being consumed by regret and shame while trying to moderate everytime I drank. I failed over and over but still kept drinking.

    Well, it is Saturday and I am going to have my coffee, hang out with my doggies, go for a nice walk and go to the community craft show. I know lots of people there so it will be nice to see everyone again, plus I might buy some crafty thing.

    Have a good one and don't drink today- it's gross

    Hi, All:

    LC, it sounds like you're using the tools I know. I would say keep posting here and have in mind a phone call/email friend you can connect to in a hurry if you're feeling like drinking. Commit to doing that BEFORE you drink. I once emailed from a bathroom at a beer garden where I found myself stuck without a ride - it was VERY helpful to get some responses right away. And self care - gym, good food, warm baths, bad TV, ice cream - whatever you need except booze. You sound like you're right on top of it, however. Whoot!

    I get lazy with my food, too, Pauly. My promise to myself is to make some good food tomorrow that I can heat up and/or make at work for lunches. Otherwise I tend to go with burritos, grilled cheese and salami sandwiches...

    Wags - bad TV is one of my Friday night indulgences. I watched the Great British Baking Show last night. I don't consider it bad TV actually, just not the arty TV that other folks are watching these days. I LOVE how nice they are to each other, and I love watching the creativity.

    On my way to work for a bit, and then hang with the family. A pretty low-key weekend ahead and I am THRILLED.

    Happy SOBER Saturday. Oh, and don't drink. It's gross.

    Good evening Nesters,

    Woke up to a brisk 32 degrees this morning. Grateful the heater was fixed yesterday just in time, haha!

    Wags, I’m feeling a bit brain dead myself & I know it’s due to allergies. Other than taking Zyrtec 2x/day as instructed bt the allergist there’s not much else I can do but wait it out. Hope youhad a good day.

    LC, the guys were on a boat about 14 miles off the coast of Gloucester, MA. I just saw a picture of the 400 lb 85”long tuna my son latched on to but had to release. Apparently they can’t take anything that big, they’re considered Breeding fish. So if your bluefin tuna is 68” or larger you have to toss it back, LOL. Wth would anyone do with a fish that big anyway???

    Hi to Pauly, Pav, Narilly, Byrdie & everyone checking in later.
    Wishing a safe night in the nest for all.

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi all,

    One long weekend day of work down, one to go! Tomorrow will be a doozy with 5 sessions plus taking my dad grocery shopping. I could not possibly live this life if I were drinking even the slightest bit. But I don't drink - it's gross!

    Pav, thanks for the tv show suggestion - I've been meaning to check that one out!

    Any other good ones anyone can recommend???

    I might not check in tomorrow but will be sure to stop by the next Monday for sure.

    Hope you all are having fab sober weekends yourselves.

    That idea crosses my mind pretty often, Wags. Look at all we'd be missing!!!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Hi Nesters,

    Late check in for me on this lovely Sunday evening..
    Just had my 4 besties over for coffee and cake, to meet my mom. They'd last seen her when my youngest daughter was born, almost 15 years ago. I was a bit nervous because our group dynamic (we hung out as a group, always!, for about 12 years) has weakened/changed a bit the past couple of years.. with all of us changing/growing older, with my alcohol issues, etc, we've grown apart some. This is the second time in 2 months that we've all been together and it was soooo nice. It seems some wounds have healed.. and it's also nice to be at someones home instead of out at a restaurant, where acoustics are often bad, we don't have as much time, etc.
    So, all good.

    Sounds like everyone has pretty relaxing plans for the weekend.. except you, Wags.. but as you've often mentioned, it's also nice to have time off during the week when the rest if the world is working! My mom turned me on to the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.. which I find hilarious. But it's amazon and I hate them. So let's see if I continue.. I really liked The Queer Eye.. gosh, I can't remember what else. Marshall was a film we liked about Thurgood Marshall..

    Lav, that was a crazy big tuna your son got a hold of.. yes, thank goodness they had to let it go. Can you imagine? You'd have to buy 3 new freezers to store it!

    Hope everyone has a good start to the week.. for us it's back to school after a 2 week break and I'm already hearing moans and groans!
    big hugs..xx

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good morning. Feeling pissy today. All par for the course.

    Pauly, the keto diet really, really helped me not want alcohol, primarily because I didn't need the sugar fix. I was modified keto though, because I couldn't handle NO carbs. I think it's worth trying - because it stabilized my blood sugar so well. It may not be a long term diet though...

    Ava, to be clear, I was fully on board with the alcoholic title and acceptance until a couple of people admitted they felt my consumption didn't "qualify" (or that I was minimizing or lying about it), so where does that leave me if I was telling the truth? In my own personal "in between". I know how alcohol made me feel, but it was people here who made me question "the extent" of my issue, it was not self-originated. I expected that from my husband, but when other experts who are your strongest supporters wonder, it takes a lot of self-searching to choose my own path while fighting the questioning. I have not been able to shake the feeling now that my situation was not really that bad - which makes me feel sometimes that drinking again wouldn't be that big of a deal. My life IS better without alcohol, that I know - and that I cling to as much as I can.

    LC, I love Queer Eye. It's a favorite in our house! Finding a few new ones as autumn arrives and loving it!

    Cooking up a storm here - sweet potato hash and balsamic reduction with maple bacon... YUM on a chilly, windy fall day! Hope everyone has a strong one.
    Kensho

    Done. Moving on to life.
