      Its funny in a good way that the celebrations we looked forward to before as in Christmas,thanksgiving,4th july ,St patricks day etc etc for us were just excuses to drink , not that we needed to many, but that excuse for that day was one of the above, Now we don't look at it like that at all & I personally enjoy them even more now, and do wonder why I bothered drinking at all ?? So many question's ?

      If it is OK with everyone I will post my days sober on here from time to time and not so often on the Newbies Nest roll call. I don't want to discourage those just starting out to be discouraged from posting alongside "larger" numbers.

      So, I am on day 910 today.

      Maybe we could get this thread going again, Alpro . Congratulations on your 910 days - you're heading for quadruple digits and won't have to ever be in triples again. How are you feeling these days?

      I had anticipated a lot of family stress over the holidays and while most of that did not even materialize, I was pretty worn out between that and just the sheer working of traveling, cooking big meals for a group, and just all the stuff that comes with a busy holiday season. I often thought about how grateful I was to not only not want a drink but to feel no need for a drink. It has become a complete non-issue apart from the relief of no longer being a slave to a substance. If only we could get the message out loud and clear that time truly is a magic healer. And it doesn't take 4 years - I've felt this way for a long time. But I'm glad to stay aware and appreciative of what a better life this is. I hope 2017 is the year that everyone who is seeking sobriety finds the way there that works for them! xx, NS

      Thanks NS. My thoughts exactly on the thread. Hoping to see more activity here.

      I don't feel so much different today overall, but am not overwhelmed by alcoholism anymore. Before, I was either anticipating drinking, drinking, recovering physically, and the mental obsession of guilt and remorse never ended. Today, I am free of that.

      My day revolved around getting/consuming/recovering, also, Alpro. For awhile after quitting, I felt like the days lasted for about 36 hours each! It was hard to figure out how to fill all of them, haven given up so many friends and hobbies at the insistence of my toxic friend, AL!! Well, now that I do a lot of "stuff" again, I'm afraid the days are back to being a little too short - can't possibly accomplish all I want and need to do. On the other hand, what a gift to actually care about things again and to have goals and desires. It is shocking what AL takes from us slowly and insidiously so we're not even aware of all we're giving up. It is great to be LIVING again! I'm so glad you're free, too .

      Greetings 100 Day Clubbers,

      Was on a tram today, and noticed the electronic sign inside with the date running across it was wrong - it read 30/12/2010....This made me giggle, and then I thought about the fact that I would not want to be back in 2010, when I was still drinking and making a mess of everything. Things are just so much better now!

      Viva Sobriety!

      Hi, All:

      I haven't checked in here in a while. I would have been mad if it went away before I got to 100 days. Maybe we should resurrect it? I have the same problem everyone else does... Time is NOT on my side.

      El - so great to see you check in. I still can't believe you're living in China. What an amazing adventure you are on. Glad you got that teaching gig, and glad you're slowly adjusting.

      I have been eating very poorly for the last couple of weeks, and my mood/body are letting me know that I need to make better choices. I look forward to getting a reboot on my health in January. I usually am better at moderating my eating but this has been a bad few weeks. I have been very busy and not cooking well, which was a bad way to lead into the month.

      See you all soon.
      Pav

      Heellooo!
      Miss you guys. Worked straight through the past holiday weeks with just a couple of days of rest here & there.

      Today is 961 af days for me. All I think about is how GLAD I am I stopped drinking.
      Adjusting to my new life would have been impossible I think.
      I see the ongoing damage alcohol causes to my colleagues, incredible really. I am trying very hard not to judge but feel empathy as I know how difficult it is to kick this habit. And maybe even more so if you try to do it and are not experiencing health or other enormous problems that are impossible to ignore. Maybe for a lot of people it is just a situation of 'it would be better to quit but I don't have to....' so we continue.
      That was how I saw it while I was drinking.
      Now I see things quit differently.
      I see it as taking back my time, my thoughts, my life. Wow are we every lucky to have gotten rid of this habit guys! Big thank goodness on that one.
      Happy New Year,
      (AF since 17 May 2014) 2 years 5 months sober
