      Hi, @Cinders

      I'm with you! The obsession crowded out everything else in my life. Whenever it crosses my mind that a drink would be nice, all I have to do is remember how awful it is to have everything be about the next drink, and it is pretty easy to just let it go. Congratulations on your 2 years of AFreedom! NS

      I had such a hard time making my quit stick that I'm afraid to temp the AL gods in any way! Years ago I had some ravioli that I later learned had a white wine sauce and at some point years ago, I ate around a cheesecake that had a Bailey's glaze on it. If AL weren't a THING with me, I prolly wouldn't remember those two obscure times! I don't cook very much anymore, most of the dishes I used to cook didn't have wine in them, only the cook did. Those weren't the days. Byrdie

      Next time I make lemon chicken I will use one and will ensure I cook the alcohol out.

      For some of my close friends, having alcohol in their house is a big no, no. They don't want to take the risk. For others, cooking with wine is not an option.

      I have been blessed by God to lose the obsession of alcohol. It took months of work, prayers, meditation, etc. I finally achieved it and would not do anything to bring that obsession back into my life.

      Whatever it takes...
      Happened to check MWO today and am so happy for you!.. Have wondered a few times how your doing. Remember your story. If you can I can!? Blessings to you and you family!... Thank you so much for coming back here and sharing Cinders!..

      Here I am ....
      here I go ....

      I listen to Metallica’s old number. One I used to listen when I was lot younger. Early nineties ... magical time.

      Here I am ..
      on road again ......

      As the music moves on , reminding me old times. I think and think .... about life

      Life’s sometimes I feel is not fair. Or should See the way my mind sees my life is not fair.
      I remember one first time my dad got me that Guniness Record cassette sometime in mid 1987.
      Cassette wrapped in green box which I still remember.

      Metallica ....One ! What a wonderful song.

      But tonight I am having trouble sleeping. One of those disappointing week.
      Well when I was expecting a big business deal
      The deal came but lot less bells and whistles
      Disappointment

      But I am used to disappointments in my life
      Missing out childhood due to financial issues
      Falling in wrong girl not one but two times.
      Not having friends ... due to extreme reserved nature which I have and still have

      But human minds are not fair
      They tend to see negative things
      In life

      Happiness ...
      is relative
      Am I happy ?
      Or do I have to make myself “happy” ?
      By drinking, or exposing myself to what life has to offer?

      “Time” ... another great song my Pink Floyd
      What magical time it must have been ... 60’s
      I wasn’t born then
      But I see people of that generation ... happy

      But why am I so sad tonight
      Scribling random thoughts
      In middle of night

      I wonder why my mind sees what I don’t have
      Why can’t it see what I have ..

      Recovery was hard
      But 4 years on I am still recovering
      Learning to live life
      Learning for find love and peace

      I am grateful that now I realize that Alchol is not the way
      Facing life’s it’s ups and downs

      Let me not bore you all my my thoughts
      Just pooped in here
      On a rather selfish reason
      To vent out
      Speak out
      Cry out

      Surrounded by family and friends
      I am alone
      When will I change ?
      Rahul

      Re: 100 Day Club members/Maintenance Thread

      Rahul, Im sorry you are so down. I lost a big deal two years ago (when I first started my new job) and Im still not over it. THAT hurt and I felt exactly the same as you....life isn t fair. But you know, Time heals a lot of things...last month, I learned that the deal I thought that customer made with the other company didnt happen. They only did 3 stores! I was so hurt after I lost that deal that I never followed back up with them. Looks like now I have another chance!
      You have so much to be thankful for...your sobriety at the top of that list, you have friends here, too, lots of them!
      Thank you for checking in. Stat close. I hope your mood lifts soon. Thinking of you. Byrdie
