    Well done on Day 2! I just saw you on roll call and was thrilled to see you have started posting there! As you can see, we have some amazing numbers over there. Truth is, every single day we can put between us and booze is a major win! Great job! Rinse and repeat! Hugs, Byrdie

    For me the trick was coming here DAILY when brand new to my quit, and good for you for going to the roll call. It is kind of like the book "Write it down, make it happen". When we put it in writing, we are reinforcing our belief that that is what we want. I try to post daily (other than if out of country or something makes computer time difficult) and I really find it helps me stay accountable. I REALLY, REALLY want to come back and tack on another day. I feel it would be too easy to say, "Oh what the heck" and relapse if I wasn't being that accountable to come here and post.

    Hang with us - we'll pull each other up!

    I fell off last night, and today was day 1 again. I don't know why I thought I needed to do that, but I did. I need your help, guys. Can I lean on you?

    g'night.

    Of course you can lean on your MWO friends, that's what we do for each other and part of why we're here.

    Have you checked in with the Nest today? As you know, there's lots of experience and wisdom there plus tons of support.

    What do you think was the trigger last night?

    Day 1 is better than day 0. Most of us have fallen many times. We jus keep getting up. Just don't give up. Soon or later something will click. A relapse can be a learning opportunity of what your weakness are, places, events, situations, people etc to avoid for several weeks in the beginning of your recovery.

    Idef, you can do it, we can help!!
    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.

    Liz said it all very well but I'll add my 2 cents also. Relapse not only helps us determine what our weaknesses are so we can avoid the trap again, but it also helps remind others how easy it is to relapse and puts us on guard (we hope) as everyone is only 1 drink away from a relapse.

    I like Liz's "day 1 is better than day 0." So true. Come on back to the roll call and let's just keep tacking on days.

    As NS would say, think about what went wrong and sharpen a tool in your arsenal against AL. What might you try differently this time so that doesn't happen.

    Stick close here, and most certainly rely on us for support - next time try BEFORE you drink. With so many time zones, there's usually someone about...

    Idf - what brought it on? Did you go out to a restaurant or were you at home?
    For my first week I ate at home exclusively, mostly due to lack of energy. This last weekend
    I went to an art class that lasted longer than I expected and by the time it was over I was
    so hungry. We went out to a Mexican restaurant and the desire for a drink was huge! I really
    had not expected that.

    Let us know what brought on your slip.

    If you have a comfort level to share, it always helps others to know what circumstances happened that made you feel tempted enough to drink. It's a learning curve for everyone. I know others were interested to know why I threw in the towel after many years of trying to moderate. Just helps others to know what went on for folks so they can get stronger in their resolve to quit.
