Sorry I missed it....... Happy Belated 9 months Sober!!!!!
LIving with our selves sober is sometimes the hardest thing. Sobriety is a lifestyle. Continue to embrace that lifestyle and you will continue to be rewarded. Sometimes life sucks but..... it is soooooo much better sober.

Stay vigilant,
Saint

Good afternoon I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

May i just say that hearing your journey into sustainability is a real fillip for me and i dare say for so many of us here. Your words not lost on me when you say, "relax and focus". So often focus seems to take "so much". To learn to relax whilst focusing, a real gift to share.

Thank you.

Be peaceful, be healthy and be strong. Loveness to you I Am Trying

Good morning I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

Just a thought for you.

I am in dear ole Blighty, i have no idea what time it is where you are, but i reckon it might be night time.

As i shared with Nancy, i KNOW there are plenty of folk in dear ole Blighty that follow our journey, because it is also theirs yet "it dare not speak its name" for them at this time.

So, when you write a letter sharing which day, how you achieve that day with a mantra we all wish for, you have to realise i read that at the beginning of my day.

Thank you I Am Trying for being the most wonderful reference point in my journey.

Be peaceful, be healthy and be strong. Loveness to you I Am Trying

Good evening to you I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

My unoriginal heart feels so for such a determined soul. I can only imagine how challenging, how frustrating not being able to influence in the way your chosen professionalism should allow.

What i have, and continue to learn from you is that, keep the horizon straight, navigate as such. I can not be alone in my respect in how your life simply must have been subject to the same currents and waves as every one of us. Your ship, however you may see it, others look at their maps and set a new course for your waters.

Inspiration, indeed.

I have no doubt you are expected to be a leader in the field you belong to.

I have been at home in dear ole Blighty....hanging onto "sober today", and read your words so often. You couldn't stop the tears, but you empowered me to stop the consequences. I feel you have an enigmatic aura. It feels so strong and resolute. When i read your words i feel "i can"...that hugs me.

Be peaceful. be healthy and be strong. loveness to you I Am Trying

Iam, fall was Monty's favorite time of year. Enjoy the color. I got my 1-year chip at a meeting recently. I was sober for 1 year on September 8th. It won't be long now for you. It's a good feeling.

Good morning....

Thanks Rlee and all...

Day 297 no drinks feeling good...

Remembering, one day at a time, I am responsible for my actions and their consequences, think thru the first drink and urge...relax and easy...

I have restarted writing my own blog for myself (not published) for myself, I used to write this 3-4 years back..i had left it...it is something I express freely and what progress i am doing on things i should be doing...it helps me to think thru....
I am not very happy at work...i am working on somethings to change...writing blog for myself helps me...i can say more of digital diary....my frustration, my thoughts and my feelings freely flow there just safe and I am with myself...interestingly, looking back 3-4 years i had written several times that i had problem with drinking and i had to cut down, today i read all of previous writings....actually cutting down never worked for me...it was simply to STOP drink is working and will continue to work on staying on that course...

Want to say Thank you to this wonderful family of support i have got. You mean a lot to me...I count on you and I think about all of you everyday...I may not have been posting lately much on other treads, i have been busy with my work mainly frustrated and other things with stock market...though things are getting better...

Have a great day...stay safe and stay sober...

Controlled drinking never worked for me more than a couple days then I was right back at it.
