    Re: 100 Day Club members/Maintenance Thread

    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 ?

    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
