    Well had a pretty relaxing AF Monday, was pretty lazy just watched TV and ate too much.... no hang over from that though.... Enjoying the Kindle my son is letting me use, got up an hour early to read.....in fact enjoying the Kindle itself sooo much could care less the book I am ready sucks (Any one read it: Gut's?) I guess it does not suck I am just not fond of the girls writing style....almost like she is trying to hard.

    LG - glad you are back to work and feeling better.... Hope you enjoy your white trash casserole as I am about WTC'd OUT However, I did not make my second batch in the oven last night because my hubby grabbed a sandwich on his way to band practice and told me not to worry about dinner. So will have again tonight.....

    Debating doing another AF day but not holding myself to it. It is amazing how flippen great or at least 100% better I feel every morning I wake up without a liquor hangover yet does not fail that thoughts creep into my head on my drive home from work. Still can't believe that I have managed to avoid that liquor store for 17 days (except for the one Friday early on I ran back out to it)!

    Definitely have to attribute a large part of that success to all of you and this entire site.

    Hope everyone has a great day..... Still missing a few people around this site.

    Good morning all! Had the bottle of sparkling cider last night, my MIL wondered what was up with that and I told her I was celebrating the babies being home a week! My wife knew what we were toasting, and my MIL had her glass of red.

    We didn't tell MIL or most of my in-laws about my sobriety/moderation journey b/c we don't want them worrying as my brother, who was sober 20+ years, went off the wagon while we were honeymooning and lost his kids as a result. Besides, she's 83, and why worry her. My family knows what's going on and are all very supportive. Not that my in-laws wouldn't be supportive as well, but they'd also worry for my wife.

    Vliv, glad you've had a few days AF. I absolutely love my kindle, so much that I bought my wife one the Valentine's Day after she gave me mine for Christmas. Got my daughter a Fire for her birthday back in June, and she loves it too! The only thing I don't like is no back lighting, so reading at night in bed requires a little light.

    LG, thanks again for the 30 day thread post. The response there has been incredible, really making me feel good about what I've done.

    Cashy, hope you're still sticking around this thread. Hope everyone else is doing well. Lurking folks, jump in and lets get this thread rockin!

    Have a great day all! AF or Mod, stick to your goal for the day and feel great when you wake in the morning.

    Dave

    Hey D. I'm glad you were pleasantly surprised at your 30 day thread. I know when I first made it 30 days, it was very heart-warming to get "pats on the back", and I try to make sure others get recognized too.

    Still muddling through the day here. I'm very hungry but still have 20 min. before my lunch hour (1 pm). Thinking about subway.

    Day 3 AF for me.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm subway, I don't think a week goes by I don't eat there at least once.

    My son has worked all summer at an awesome small chain sub shop and gets us subs half off, they are soooo good but I like all the ones that are really bad for you from there though......

    I am a creature of habit when it comes to lunch I will eat the same thing for weeks on end and then switch to something else for weeks on end, right now it is lean cuisine cheese tortellini

    Hi, LG and VL. I too like Subway, but mostly get creative with their Chicken or Steak chipotle subs. Also love (might be even better than Subway, which started and is headquartered here in Milford, CT) D'Angelo Subs, not sure if they've gone nationwide, though.

    VL, I am the same way at times. I find something I really like and have it a bunch of days in a row. There used to be this awesome deli around the corner that made the best Cajun chicken sandwiches...dripping with spicey cajun sauces...that I probably had 3 a week for two years! Lately I've been getting these awesome gyro's from a greek deli that the owner, a friend of mine, will use Siracha sauce when he's cooking mine....OMG, I went two weeks solid every day early this summer, and might grab one right now just thinking about it!

    Hope everyone else is well. LG, I really did appreciate the 30 day post, and look forward to playing that forward for someone else!

    Have either of you two ever heard of or participated in Landmark Education ("The Landmark Forum"?) I have done the Forum a few times and the advanced course and a few seminars, and really loved it. It's all about creating and living a life you love, and I've recently realized that I got away from that. I signed up for a course and am already sensing my brain taking me back into that mode of thinking. It's very positive, and I'm liking it in a big way.

    I did have subway. I had a turkey on Italian with avocado. MMMmm. Gone now, hee hee. Time to make dinner. Btw, I am not like you two. I like something different every day.

    Another AF day for me. Having some coffee with Italian cream right now. Will probably get 4+ AF days this week. Long way from 7 days a week, I think. I remember thinking, How did I ever just drink one or two days a week?! Now, I'm back to it, and really pleased that it's doable and not difficult for me now.

    Cash: hope all goes well with your fathers surgery, and congrats on day 11!!!!!

    LG I love avocado but have a very slight allergy to it, sometimes I say F#%K it and eat it any way!!!! Doing well on the AF days I can't seem to get more than one under my belt but I think it's honestly because I just don't want to right now..... I am very proud of all the liquor free days I have under my belt though!

    D: u are making me hungry again!!!!!!

    Read for an hour now watching some old Alley McBeal.... Ha! Just having water for now but may have a few beers once hubby gets home around 6:30....

    Hope everyone has a peaceful moderate or AF Tuesday Night!

    Tried rearranging the living room tonight, briefly. Moved the sofa around, and I hate it. Now everything looks cluttered on one side. Bf has his lazy boy chair right smack dab in the middle of the living room in front of the tv, so he can play his games. It annoys the crap out of me. I see so much that needs cleaning and changing in this house, and it is overwhelming. Not to mention there is still a freakin TREE on our back deck from where it fell a few weeks ago in a storm. Insurance won't pay because my deductible is way too high, and paying for it out of pocket is a huge strain as well...ugh, hate when I start thinking of everything I need to do, then just want to hide because it seems like too much. Ever have those thoughts? Meh, it's just me probably.

    All the F'n time LG..... This was supposed to be our starter house until economy tanked been here 10 years now so many issues to deal with I usually say F' it instead!!!!

    It's soooo easy to drown ourselves it miserable thoughts and pile it on and on like we deserve it or something......

    Pick small things u know u can conquer at a time and make a plan for the tree removal either save for it or whittle away at it a lil bit each night LOL sorry made me laugh.....

    Hope u are able to flip the script in your head and find something positive to dwell on instead
