Did not have bloody marys like I thought I would have. Though I am getting ready to do some billing so may have some beer with that dreaded chore.
laundry is in the dryer needs to be hung up when the buzzer goes off.
billing should take me several hours so I dread it, may need to get some more stamps not sure.

Thanks for starting a new thread, greentires, & congrats again on your 20,000 hours of sobriety!

I didn't go to a meeting today because it was a step meeting. The topic was Step 6..."Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character." I have a problem believing in the god-concept, but it doesn't stop me from being a member of AA. AA simply works for me. When I do go to meetings I hear such a wide variety of experiences & perspectives about staying sober. I can understand those who say that AA doesn't appeal to them because of the somewhat religious bent that's often present, but I use the group - the other people - as my higher power. My sponsor believes the same thing.

Decisions are what work for me, but half have been bad ones. I decide to stop drinking and I do. I don't drink again until I decide to. Other people hold little sway over those decisions. Sometimes I feel like I don't have much say in them, because sometimes I don't. They are typically made when I am brilliant and then the decision to drink again goes off the rails when I go crashing back down into the abyss. I am hopeful that my current meds will keep me from going as far off center in either direction and I can make the decision to stop stick this time. I am hopeful about RI as it affects my decision making process. Meetings never did. I hope the RI spots stay with me if I get more than a little hypo. I read something in the AARP rag not long ago about seniors experiencing an increase of over 100% in the rate of alcoholism. I have been using that as a battering ram against my long held vision of sipping wine under palm trees in my retirement, trying to get a clear image of starting to drink again as a bad decision. Not making that decision is what my sobriety hinges on.

I've been fighting World War III with my girlfriend most of the day, so my mood isn't the best. I read your post, UpDownAround, but I'd best not respond in depth right now. In my opinion, until I admitted I was powerless over alcohol I was sunk. After one drink, the "decision" to get drunk was made. That's just my perspective...

Maybe I'll respond in greater depth when I'm not so keyed up. Sorry.

Glad to contribute to #2 b/c that is how I'm feeling right now...shi**y! Why try to stay sober right now when my hubby is Fu**ing with us?! If he can't man up and fix his issues, that keep him from showing me his love, then really, I will look elsewhere. I deserve love. I need love. Right now, my love is in another glass of wine. Screw you Monday morning!!

I'm sorry you're feeling so frustrated right now, Toomixedup, but I'm sure you've experienced wicked hangovers before. Monday morning WILL come, so try to take it easy; you'll thank yourself.

Congrats, JessLynn! I've heard kicking meth is especially difficult.
