    Byrdy,

    This is a great idea. Very few post in Long Term Abstainers.

    What generally happens is that as a person gathers more and more time in sobriety, they also begin to change their lives with new endeavors that take up much of their time.

    i.e. xTexan, Irishlady, Brittzak, Doggy Girl, Mags, etc.

    Therefore, long terms tend to disappear. In the past, we dubbed them solar orbiters. Those who had a year or more under their belts.

    Which is a good thing. This also shows that life goes on to bigger and better things with sobriety.

    However, it is also very good for those with less sobriety under their belts to see what those with longer time are doing and feeling to give them a view forward, as it were.

    Thanks!
    Cindi

    Greetings everyone

    Thanks for creating this thread Byrdie!
    My Newbies Nest speeches are burning ruts into my brain, I could use a break :H

    Maybe we can discuss some things we have learned along the way. Things about ourselves & things we need to remain on this AF path!

    I have learned the almighty importance of maintaining balance in my life. Avoiding drama created by others is essential for me! I have taken ownership of all of my problems, made a plan & worked to correct them & most importantly - change my thinking! I did the work & now I am rewarded with a life free of addiction. My life is not perfect, not by any stretch but it is free

    Today I celebrate 44 months smoke free & that's a big deal for me. March 26 is right around the corner when I will celebrate 4 years AF. And btw - I will throw a big party here ~ everyone is invited

    :H I feel the same way, I try to come up with different wording every time, but there is only so many ways to convey the basic information. I often wonder if the long term people, roll their eyes on "another Nelz" post.


    4 years soon eh? I better get the factory on double time.......

    Lav..which did you find easier to quit cigs or al?
    mbh I found it easier to give up al..think the reason for that was it was still accepted practice to smoke in public and at work...whereas not quite so sure al would have been looked at in the same light!!

    I'm in! Wonderful idea Byrdie. Sometimes it does to get to be a bit much to hear the advice over and over. Many do need it but we have moved on. It will be lovely to stay in touch and maybe even talk about other things than alcohol like Mick's furnace, lol. We are pretty terrific people. I'd like to spend more time with us.
