I called Carolyn and asked her if she wanted to go to dinner on friday night. And she said yes. ( I have to find other activities to do that don't include drinking). She is a licensed florist and just got a job at the fresh market working 3 days a week.

I thought about it then I called her back and asked her if she would like to go to planet fitness with me(I have the up graded membership to bring a friend for free).
We could walk on the tred mill and then go grab a quick dinner somewhere. She said yes.
Something to do on a friday night....not trivia in their bar!
yeah!

Am taking a much needed shower this morning and washing my hair. Bizi's new 2019 thread
Got up at 7am and have checked into the forums, now here.
Weighed 183.1 this morning. I have been snacking after dinner.
We went to Jason's deli for dinner last night.
I had this breakfast sandwich called a sammy.
egg/cheese/ham/mayo toasted on a small bread like thing flat and smooth and round.
I put a spicy olive pepper mixture on the sandwich and it was delicious!
ate 1 small ginger bread muffin and a small ice cream cone. No wonder I am not losing weight. Bizi's new 2019 thread
I need to be more disciplined.
Jeff and I are watching LOST again for the umpteen time. love it!
I have been drinking hot tea at night while watching and I microwave a bean like pillow for my back ache which seems to be better. Thank goodness as my requires alot of kneeling and getting up and down, bending over etc.
Today makes 10 days AF(this time around).
Tonight is AA. I will ask for a sponsor. Bizi's new 2019 thread
I will print out the Women for sobriety statements and go over them with her once I meet up with her. I will ask for a female, hopefully there will be one.
The place was packed over 100 people there, surly there will be a female sponsor available.
It meets at 8pm.
Onto my 3rd cup of coffee....need to hop into the shower!
Hate getting in there, but then I like the hot water until it runs out. So frustrating.
have a great day yall. Bizi's new 2019 thread
(((((HUGS))))) to those who need them....

Red face Re: Bizi's new 2019 thread

After talking with the sponsor we decided that I was not an alcoholic.
So I am not going to go to AA meetings nor meet with her again.
She was a very lovely lady and I wished her the best.

You don't have to be an alcoholic to attend AA meetings, or even work the steps, or have a sponsor. I once had a problem with alcohol during my divorce. I went to AA for 18 months every Friday for support throughout my divorce, and to not drink. I had a problem with alcohol and needed the support of AA but I never did anything but show up. I also was the "coffee person" a lot, and I made cakes for those who celebrated sobriety dates of 3 months, 6 months, and a year.


It worked well for me, and I eventually felt I didn't need meetings, and I was sober for ten years - no problem. I didn't label myself an alcoholic because I didn't feel the need. I just wanted to not drink. That was my objective. And for ten years I was quite happy with that and never labeled myself alcoholic.


After ten years I decided to try social drinking. After ten years that first beer was...very nice. But my relationship to drinking had changed. I wasn't as into it at all.



I found that when I am in a stressful place in my life I can't drink because I tend to over-drink. If I am in a balanced place I find it easy to drink socially. But I just made it a rule to not drink when stressed and eventually I lost all desire to drink. I would rather eat my calories than drink them. I also established a very clean diet and alcohol didn't fit in with it.



Now I don't drink at all. I have pretty strong opinions now about alcohol and don't think it is good for anyone, even in moderation. It is unnecessary and can be problematic.


If I may make a suggestion...work hard at self care and maybe the desire to drink will abate. Avoid triggers.



Most of all - and this is just my opinion - get rid of labels. Whether or not you are an alcoholic is moot. You simply don't want to drink. It is like any other habit...you either give it power...or you don't.


I found out the hard way that a lot of people in AA lie about their sobriety. So you can't count on others, really.


If alcohol is not enhancing your life...just eliminate it. I am certain you can do it because you seem like a very strong-willed person.


I have to eliminate certain foods because they are addictive. Mostly processed carbs. I just consider alcohol in the same category. It plays havoc with blood sugar levels.



Although I attended AA I have come to believe that addiction is not something one is powerless over. It is for a reason we became addicted...to manage emotional pain, mostly. So yeah, if you have emotional pain, it is difficult, often, to stay sober, but not impossible.


I no longer break down and drink when stressed. Alcohol just isn't on my radar and I love being sober because it gives me a sense of efficacy and control.



Good luck. This is just my opinion. Once you "break the back" of an addiction (by repeatedly refraining from the substance) it won't have the same power.



Don't give away your power, Bizi. You can do this. Just believe you can, do it, and of course don't be too hard on yourself in other areas (like dieting) at this time.

Dechandawa,
Thank you for your nice and kind and lengthy post to me this morning.
I really appreciate your wisdom and sharing your story.
There are other reasons for not attending AA meetings of any kind that I won't go into here.
I hope you have a wonderful sober life!!!!
(((((HUGS)))))
