    Wow BabyK. That's great about your kids not ever seeing you drink. You're setting the example for them. Kids learn by observing...not so much by listening. LOL

    I just got back from a meeting. My sponsee picked up a 3 month chip tonight. Makes me very happy.

    Glad to see ya' here. Keep comin' back. :)

    Hey Foxman
    Just read about your potential new business venture. Hope things work out. Sounds awesome. It'll be whatever it is supposed to be. :)

    I've owned 2 businesses. 10 years with one & 13 with the other. They ran concurrently. Had employees & all that entails. Registration with Federal & State govts & all that entails too. I don't think I ever slept after I hired that first employee. Lots of responsibility along with tremendous spiritual growth & enlightenment from the experience. Can't describe it. You'll just have to do it. Then you'll know.

    The hard part for me was remaining "right sized". I became obsessed with business & I didnt stay close to the program then. Wish I had. But I came back & through it all I didn't drink or do any "other stuff".

    Keep us in the loop. We're cheering for ya'. It's a wonderful adventure.

    That's great to hear all. Foxman, there's a guy on here named ZAPPED that used to have a vape shop. Maybe he can make some good connections for you.

    Here's a topic starter-

    Had a fella years ago in the program ask me why I could quit the booze with the twelve steps and not the cigs. Lol, pondered that for years until I ended up here.



    Foxman- get that new business up and running yet?

    Hey Foxman
    Bullette the Cowdog checking in.

    Just got back from a meeting. Wow, it was Birthday night! We had 5 celebrants: 8, 9, 10, 16, & 27 years.
    Dang, that's a lotta sobriety! We had cake, then we took 'em out to dinner after the meeting. A great time was had by all. We even dragged along a newbie with 6 days.

    Glad to hear you are moving along with your new adventure. Remember to stay humble.

    Way to go Foxman & friend too!

    We give out the beginner chips at every meeting. You know: one day, 3 months, 6 months, etc. Many folks don't like giving the presentation talk when the chip box is at their seat. I always like to do it cuz it makes me feel like a winner when I can give one. Haha. It's all about me??
