Checking in daily to help maintain focus

9 months sober today! My date is 12/12/17. Went to my second meeting in the new area last night. It was really powerful. Like the Sunday meeting, there were about 30 people there and some with over a decade of sobriety. So inspiring.

Big, huge milestone! Congratulations @MikeSeekingHope! :blush:

Thank you! It’s taken a lot of work, a lot of forcing myself to behave in ways that don’t come naturally, and learning to love myself for the first time in memory. I have a long way to go in all three of those departments but one day at a time I’m getting there.

Oh man. That sucks, sorry to hear you lost all your nice work. :expressionless: Now you can create it again for the first time?

Congrats on the chomper though!

I don’t have much choice now…I kinda think this is something I need to take as an opportunity…but on the other hand I wish I even had a list of filenames so I could kinda try and gather what I lost…I have this project that I’m gathering stuff for which is something that’s been in works for nearly 20 years…and I had some ideas written down…and some directions I wanted to take it etc…my fourth step was on the files…though I probably have some earlier version of that on a usb stick somewhere…it’s not really even so much on the written files as much it’s about the disrespect these companies have for their customers…but anyways…I went to a meeting and a guy had his 26th AA birthday…he said in his speech that we are only as big as the things that we let get to us…So I suppose today I was as small as this matter…and it serves me as a lesson.

Oof.

For next time around, if you’re not leery of the cloud, you might think of using it. I have my non confidential stuff in OneDrive. Besides syncing between my couple computers, I also then have it in the cloud in case it goes poof.


#27174

That’s ok. You need your rest in the beginning. Sleep on😁


#27175

I suppose this is something I have to look at…I’ve just always thought that I’m too old to learn and master shit like cloud based drives :wink:


#27176

They’ve gotten pretty easy! If you use Windows with OneDrive, you can just pick a folder and say Sync. I’m careful not to put anything like banking or legal docs there, though.


#27177

I’m not going to start talking to my computer…that’s some futurama shit right there…:wink:


#27178

Congrats on 9 months!!!:rose::pray::+1::turtle:


#27179

If it can be of any relief: i was exhausted and tired for wééks after i stopped drinking… but it géts better!!! Take as much rest as you can, our body and mind needs the recovery​:pray::woman_shrugging::turtle:


#27180

Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it. My job is very demanding and I am trying to rest as much as I can but sometimes seems impossible mission. Naps help me a lot

204 days today.

Life is busy but good, I’ve been in the process of moving into a townhouse where I’ll have a roommate and a yard, so I’m upset excited about that. I’ve started trapeze lessons on a whim to try and build up some muscle (I’m hurting in places I didn’t know I could!) and lose my fear of heights, I’m absolutely terrible but it’s new and exciting! :heart:

:blush: I hope y’all are all doing well, again I could have never made it this far without y’all. :raised_hands:
