    Thanks for starting this , V! Good for you for planning on an AF Monday. Last week was pretty busy for me, with the grandsons on deck longer than anticipated, by Sunday night I was worn out! This week the seven year old goes to his mom's, so we may have some more time on our hands - and a tidier house!

    Now I am off to a memorial service held in honor of a friend who lost both her sister and one of her daughters in the same week, six months ago...sometimes my petty little struggles seem like just that: petty little struggles. But, keeping on with the moderation plan IS an important struggle for us all, and I wish us all a Happy and Moderate October! FF

    Hi modders, and thanks for getting us off to october V. Last night I really wanted to drink, I'm not sure what the trigger was or even if there was one, I just wanted to kick back and have a few. I'm still so worried that I'll slide back into old habits though so I ended up skipping it. I felt a bit cheated though, like why can't I have a few during the week if I want to? but I don't know if I can trust that voice or not

    Happy Tuesday Guys!

    FF- That is really sad about your friend, how was the service?

    DG- Good call on your part last night, if you are questioning slipping back into old habits then better not do anything that could get the ball rolling....

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Hi All,
    Just checking in to say hi and I'm still trying. I have a cold which has forced me to go AF!! It did feel nice to start October with a yellow 0.

    Once the term starts, things are just crazy and unrelenting at university, but I do lurk and think of all of you.

    Hi, Modders,

    Not quite sure what happened to my post from yesterday, it's disconcerting to come back and not see it. Did anyone else see my post?

    Update: The first time I tried to post here, it told me I don't have permission to do so, and to refresh and log in. If this doesn't work, I'll PM a friend and ask to update y'all....

    The gist of the post was that I'm concerned about my job. The parent company, a French HIT (Healthcare I.T.) conglomerate, is pressuring management to cut salespeople and none of us are meeting quota. The company's support has a terrible reputation, and there are very few happy customers, which makes it difficult to sell. I'm keeping my ear to the ground, and hoping to get out of here before I'm forced out. I'm also trying to make it work.

    I replied to another "newbie" that has moderating intentions, and privately told him/her to join us here. I also warned of the AFN's, so that he/she doesn't get run off...

    Hope all is well with the rest of the group.

    Hi All. So sorry about your friend FF. It certainly does put things into perspective. I am prone to worry about "petty" things as well, but in the grand scheme, it's best to be thankful.

    dg, I understand how you felt. For some reason, and I guess it was because I knew I was off work today, I decided to go ahead and have a glass of wine myself. There was only one glass left in the bottle, and that was what made me temper my desire...not so much willpower. We have to be dilligent about it, I think.


    DG glad to see you here! Please keep checking in, even if it's only a few sentences.

    D, never saw your first post. Not sure what happened...About your job: I can imagine how stressful it must be to not know that you're secure. To some extent, none of us are, but to have that looming over you must be exhausting. Is it possible that if it were to happen (loss of job) that you might find something you like more? I know it might not be a matter of finding something you like, but finding anything at all....anyway, good luck to you and I'm hoping for the best for you. Thanks for sending the newbie our way, if this is where he/she wants to be.

    As I said in the AF thread, I'm just wrapping things up for my trip. Still have lots to do, but procrastinating ATM. Hope you all are well.

    LG

    P.S. V, thanks for starting us off! Octoberfest!

    Can you please clarify what an AFN
    is? Just to be clear.
    I'm sure there are some newbies that have no idea of the little nickname you've assigned to the people choosing to abstain. It's not a nice name, maybe that's why you've choosen to use an abbreviation.

    K9, I think it just means an Alcohol Free Newbie? At least that's how I understood it but it wasn't my post.....

    I've chosen to take my response privately to K9b. She's already ruined too many threads and I won't let her hijack this one.
