    I am very happy to be on my 5th day of sobriety and thinking reading and posting, here, will be very helpful! I still need to learn how the posting works! I even have a photo that comes up on my profile page, but it doesn't transfer here.

    Everyone, have a great day!

    Is there a place that explains how it all works here?

    Hi RG, there is no tutorial page, but your "profile pic" only shows on your profile page, you need to pick an "avatar" (under edit your profile) to show up on your posts. Hope that helps, and congrats on Day 5!
    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.

    Hi again RG, we really have to stop meeting like this lol. The Roll Call is quite simple, you "copy" the post above your reply, paste it in your reply, then add your name and days sober at the end of the list, then post your reply. I have a thread under General Discussion, the 24 Hour Club where every day you post time and location and ask for another 24 hours of sobriety. You'll soon get the hang of the forum, and you can always ask for help/advice. The important thing is that you remain AF! It can be done!

    Oh yes, I totally relate to your story. I'm in my early fifties and have done that sort of thing on a few occasions over the years. Like you, I was very lucky that nothing bad ever happened. I emphathize with how you feel. Try not to hate yourself. Remember, you should love yourself no matter what. By being kind and compassionate to yourself, you won't give up trying to get a handle on the problem.

    Welcome to all of you.

    gettinghealthy - yes, I can relate to your post. I would imagine just about everyone on MWO has a few stories to tell from our drinking days. That's the main reason most of us decided to quit. After a while, the shame and anxiety become too much. I wanted peace. It sounds like you do to. A life where you wake up in the morning knowing that you didn't do anything absurd, embarrassing or dangerous is priceless. Hang in there.

    mg72 - I was a decades long drinker also. It didn't really catch up with me until the last few final years. Then it hit me hard. I lost a lot. Glad you are giving it your all now. Good for you. And we'll be right here by your side when you need us.

    Please keep this thread going. Come back and tell us how you are doing. When I started out here, there was a group of newbies that started with me. I'm proud to say that many of them are still here and sober. But we helped each other through those rough first few days and months. And we still support each other to this day.

    runnergirl - the Newbies Nest moves quickly, but you'll soon get the hang of it. Hope to see you there.

    Best wishes to all of you.
