    Stopping by to say "hi." I'm predominately a Jimmy K fella, but Bill W & Dr Bob are definitely friends.

    Also stopping by to say hi! I just had a month (again) trying not to beat myself up too much about it. Been a friend of Bill and Bob since 2003.

    Congrats Ganns1980!!! Don't even sweat how long you got in the program. It's all ODAT for all of us, sometimes minute by minute.

    Took me 3 tries myself- just wasn't remotely ready the first 2 times.

    I can remember when a month consecutive was completely unfathomable... Congratulations on your month, & I'm grateful you're back!

    Just Never lose track of this.

    That was My Problem. I would be doing Good and get 3 or 4 Months under my belt. And then the Thinking that Everything was Under Control would come back. And thoughts of just having a couple would work out this time.

    the problem is one drink always seems to come in 5 glasses. My fist meeting, right after i took my chip, a man gave me some sage advise. he looked at me and said "whenever you think about having a drink, put that chip in your mouth. when it dissolves, you can have that drink" haha

    I quit drinking about 20 years ago, but I surely know the pitfalls involved, it was the hardest thing I ever did.

    Quitting smoking was simple by vaping, shame someone doesn't come up with something to help folks who drink excessively, like I did.

    Hi All, just happened across this thread also. 6 months here! I suppose this is my higher power keeping an eye on me, so I just had to post! He sure does work in strange ways. Can someone tell me what everclear is and where to get it? Don't want to be using any alcohol.

    If you are at 6 Months, you might Not Want to buy Everclear.

    Because it is 190 Proof Alcohol.

    If you are Looking for Something to Clean with, Try White Vinegar. Works Great. And it does have some of the Side Effects that having Alcohol in the House can have.

    ;)


    BTW - Right on for 6 Months!

    zoiDman, thanks for the heads up,will try the vinegar instead! Saying no to the 190 proof! Thanks for the BTW. Been a hard but doable journey so far. I think I may have the right frame of mind to lick this on my 2nd try!

    "It is Much Easier to Stay Sober than it is to Get Sober."

    Just Worry About Today. It sounds like you are Doing Great.
