Hi again just popped back on as been having alcohol thoughts today :o
Do you have dogs Mackintosh? I have a 2 yr old staffie x shitzu called Tilly, she is a funny little thing! I also walk & train dogs for a living. Tilly is helping me stay AF as I hate being drunk around her.
Hope work going ok for you today Maria, what do you do?
Am thinking of writing my drinking memoir to post on the road to abstinence, I have been reading others & think it could be quite cathartic for me to have it down to help me in moments like these.
Sorry for the ramble guys hope your shields are still up. ;)?

Morning all :\:
Glad you were strong yesterday cherry and yes I have 2dogs both newfies so keep me busy.😲
Maria where are you headed to next? Congratulations you've done so well (::)
Didn't swim yesterday time just got away from me and possibly again today but as I am trying to put myself first at the moment I don't want to be stressing about whether I've been swimming or not really. I'm riding my lovely horse later on though so at least I have that for my me time 😊🤠🐎
Think I may post in the road to abstinence too too, thanks for the pointer cherry.
Have a good day both!!

Well done Maria, you are doing amazing! We will miss you :\: but hope to see you in other challenges.
Hey Mackintosh, aww 2 lovely Newfies, I bet they are a lot of fun (::)
Agree with trying not to stress out if we don't do stuff, it's good to have routines in place but also not to be too hard on ourselves if we miss a day here or there.
And thanks so much for sharing the inspirational quote :D

Hiya I know what you mean about finding it tough lately, at least you are keeping busy with other things.
Day 35 for me & I don't recall ever going this long AF since I started drinking years ago. How about you?

Hi Mackintosh wow 3 months...am sure you will def break that record!
Aww shame for Maria, I saw that she was worried on the lead up an evening out, can't be easy right...I am indeed concerned about an event next month & the impending AF Xmas :o
Still happy to be where we are for now ;)?

Morning cherry...Yes sad about maria and apparently Sandpoint is back on day 2 😑
I'm trying to stay positive though I do feel it when others who have been with us along the way fall and I struggle with that.
Keeping busy , more swimming and dinner with my parents later.
Hope you have a good day 😊

Morning :\:
I was wondering about Sandpoint, but at least they are still on here & trying again. Am sure any number of AF days are a step in the right direction.
Enjoy Friday & shields up again for the weekend!
