      An Invitation to Every Member of MWO!

      If you read around the threads like I do, you can see that MWO is struggling once again to keep members and attract new ones, Iím not sure the reason why, or the answer, but itís sad to see some traditional threads become so quiet that you think itís going to fade away.

      Iíve never been much for counting days of sobriety as I didnít think that it would really help me quit drinking, and I very seldom post on the Newbieís Nest Roll Call and have just recently started posting on the Super Sober Sunday Shout Out, as I thought it would seem that I was just bragging, kind of like pointing a finger in someoneís face and saying ďlook where I am, and look where you areĒ. But Iíve changed my way of thinkingÖ. @Elvis and @A new page post everyday on the Roll Call and @JackieClaire never fails to start the SSSSO thread, and Iíve come to think that you canít get to 1300 days without having a Day 1 then Day 2. There was a time not long ago when those threads were pages long, itís time to make that happen again.

      So letís all start counting our days, show the guests and newbieís that those big numbers can be achieved! I donít care how many times you post ďDay 1 againĒ and Iím sure none of the other members care about that either because 99% of us have had so many Day 1ís. As I told @paulywogg, it matters not how many Day 1ís, what matters is youíre here everyday doing your best to equal and surpass your best effort to date, youíre here to find a quit that sticks, and at the end of the day, isnít that what MWO is all about?

      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.

      Lovely post AB and so true. Back in the day MWO was so lively. It is sad that its not still. I am consciously making the effort to post each and as I know it helps keep me connected to my quest. I also know that when I dont, it takes me to places that are not good for me.

      @starty, thank you for passing on my good wishes to Chillgirl. I used to have her email address but I don't anymore because I think she re-married. :-( Please tell her that I am as "frisky" as ever! LOL

      Took a little while but I found it..........my first post on the SHOUT OUT thread from 16th August 2009............I used to sit awe at the numbers and I was a little afraid at just over a month AF I wasn't sure if I should..........I was so naive.

      NO RULES ..JUST SHOUT OUT SUNDAY
