    Greetings all Nesters,

    Nothing much going on with me, just trying to stay warm & keep my chickens from freezing in this 12 degree windchill, Brrrr!!

    Neen,, so glad to hear you are hanging in, it will get better. I miss my dogs more than most people, honestly. I have pictures of them all over the house to keep them close.

    Narilly, how do you keep your face from freezing in that weather? Geez

    Hello to Wags, Pav, Byrdie & everyone.
    Wishing us all a safe night in the nest!

    Wowza! Sugar babe! Congratulations mi amiga. You totz raaaawk! Hope you had are having a nice celebration. So glad you are here.

    Neeny! You also totz raaaawk! So sorry to hear about Ramsay. You are doing an incredible job during this difficult time. Like all of us, i'm so glad you are back around the joint.

    Nar. Sounds like you're enjoying the job. Must be a bit of a relief to have found it.

    Over here i've been really committing to nurturing my mindset. More growth, abundance, i am enough, i deserve the best, that sort of thing. It sure ain't hurting none. In fact, i like Muhammad Ali's catchphrase......'I am the greatest!'

    Big waves to evabody. Take it easy and take care of yourself.

    Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-

    Evening All,

    Well, happy 8th Sober anniversary to you, NoSugar! That’s just an amazing feat. I know that life for you is better in so many ways. I’m really happy for you! Hope you partied NS style!

    You sound as great as ever, G. So great to see that.

    It’s bitter cold here, too.

    Lav, a few GF’s sent me the paw prints memorial frame. I’ll be putting a nice Ramsay pic in that.

    It’s 30 days for me. I hadn’t even put my stickers on the calendar for a few days and I realized it. I will continue my journey, because I want to learn to like myself, I want better relationships, and I want to feel good. This past month, I’ve pretty much held the couch down, watched a ton of movies, listened to, watched, read quit lit stuff, and always have a different beverage next to me. Green tea, earl gray tea, coffee, decaf, water, hot chocolate, kombucha, sparkling water...

    Have a good start to your week.

    Neen

    Re: Newbies Nest

    NS - Congrats on 8 years of nesting, building an amazing tool kit, sharing your wisdom and wonderings with all of the rest of us, and for one of the most solid quits we've ever seen. The nest wouldn't be the same without you, that's for sure! Hope today brought you some moments that nurtured your soul.

    Nar - that's great you're liking the job so well, and especially that you're feeling less on the edge about losing it. Your early morning walks sound wonderful actually. I always like the way fresh snow "squeaks" as you walk on it when it's so very cold.

    Neen/Jvo - congrats on your 30 days as well. I'm sure it's not at all the same without Ramsay there with you. It's such a uniquely heartbreaking experience to lose fur fam. Continue to be gentle with yourself.

    Lav, Pav, Byrdie, G-dude, Ava, and everyone else stopping by the nest this weekend. Hope you all have fantastic starts to your upcoming weeks!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Morning, afternoon, evening, Nesters,

    Another major milestone in the Nest - Congratulations to you, NoSugar on eight years' sobriety!

    We might all be at different day counts, but we are united in the wanting to get / stay free from alcohol.

    Wishing everyone gets thru this day, since that's all we have to do - thanks, Byrdlady

    love,
    Steady
    AF free since April 29, 2013

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Thanks for the good wishes, nest-buddies. As I wrote elsewhere, I was really down yesterday and was going to just let the day slide on by but the Shout Out thread reminded me that it is important to appreciate what we've done and to be proud. Thank you for mentioning it here, @Pavati. At this point in our quits, those 11 months don't make any difference -- a group of us quit back in '13

    You definitely should be proud, @Neen. Reaching 8 years is much easier than reaching 30 days. It is nice to be on a road that (other than the occasional bump along the way) becomes progressively easier the farther you go. Hold on to those precious days and watch them grow!

    I appreciate your describing my quit as 'solid', @wagmore. I feel like it is and this gives my day-to-day life a foundation that was missing all those years of addicted drinking. I love being self-confident again. But I know even firm foundations can crumble without attention and this one is definitely worth protecting.

    @Byrdlady, Kuya always has been insightful. When I joined, I decided to really listen to what all of you who had more experience in successfully quitting than I did. I had plenty of experience in unsuccessfully doing so and it was pretty clear that I didn't know how to do it! So, for once in my life, I really tried to just do what you all told me. I think a big dose of humility is painful but important to get free.

    So, thanks to all of you as we go through this, helping one another. xx, NS

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Good evening Nesters,

    NS, CONGRATS to you on your 8 AF years
    Seems ‘normal’ now, don’t you think? It gets harder to remember how bad it really was before our quits BUT we know & accept it was bad enough so we decided we had to quit. Be proud of your long term accomplishment.

    Neen, big Congrats to you on your 30 days, the hardest by far
    Make this your last quit & you won’t ever have to face quitting again - you’ve done it

    Ran some errands today including a haircut because the roads probably won’t be good after the snow/ice event that is starting later tonight. I’ll just stay cooped up like the chickens for a few days.
    Hello to G, Wags, Steady, Pauly & everyone dropping in the nest tonight.

    Wishing a safe night in the nest for all!

    Re: Newbies Nest

    Evening,

    Going back to work was tough today. I’m exhausted. I’ll prob be in bed by 7:00! The weather doesn’t help matters. We will be getting the same messy weather here. When both husband and I are retired, I want to be a snowbird. Maybe rent a house for three months in Florida. The coldest months!

    Right now, I’m feeling grateful for not being drunk. I love going to bed sleepy and not in the state of passing out. I am going to relax, watch some mindless show, then zzzzzzzz.

    Neen
