And… back in business!


Day 78. I survived a day of working from home, but I am going to go in tomorrow because that was not good for me.


@ifs CONGRATULATIONS on your 500 well-fought-for days.
I believe tradition dictates you eat an ice cream for each hundred days.
Go Go Go!
Pics or it didn’t happen.
Go well, champion

  1. One day of work of day ahead followed by 2 weeks off. I offered to stay working but my place has a lot of in service trainee nurses who don’t go to school right now so they have to work instead. Let’s hope we don’t go into full lock down. And let’s hope it doesn’t reach my work place. Any time soon.
    So much in life seems out of my control right now. It actually always is but these times and events make me realise and see how much it is so. My abusing drink and drugs also was but I gained control of that by the only way possible for an abuser like me: I quit. I stay sober and clean. One day at a time. It’s being together with all of you here at TS that makes that possible for me. We can’t do it alone. Together we’re strong. Together we make it work. Thanks so much for being here all. Love from Amsterdam. Some huge milestones for some huge presences here too! @ifs @Eke @liv_m @Frantasticooo @Allen1 @everybody Huge congrats on being sober all! Have a good day. Clean and sober.

YAAAAAYYYYYY @ifs That’s my boy! :+1::sweat_smile::joy:


LOVE the numbers!! Congratulations and I feel blessed to have ‘met’ you, Ronin and Lucy :pray:

Thank you for sharing yor journey and for being your awesome self! :kissing_heart::heart::kissing_heart:


I feel your cat is judging me…


No judgement from Luna friend. She’s keeping an eye on us. Hoping we do the right thing.


Phew what a relief thought i had been barred from replying on 9 :rofl:

Massive congratulations on 500 days you and others ahead in their journey keep me inspired.:pray:


Ah love your cat picture… so agree this group is and will be important in these unsettling times… hope today goes well



Yes Try the only way is up… have a strong sober day 1. Good luck you in the right place…


Change that TRY to can and will. Enjoy your journey it’s mad.


Day 44 today,just over 6 weeks without picking up or drinking alcohol…day off work today so gonna attempt Tesco and get some grub in the house,and hopefully t paper :grin::+1::pray:


OK, wake up sober that’s always a good start, today we begin again. Meditate and remain present of my mind at all times. If I can pour it down the loo then I can definitely not put myself in the position to buy any. Things around may be uncertain but I don’t have to be. I am not lead by the fate of others. I AM.
Be strong and be safe.


Thank you @Mno :blush::blue_heart: stay safe out there friend.

New check in tread, I missed a lot off milestones I see. Everyone congratulations with it! Like @ifs with 500, @liv_m with 600 and @sprinkles with a year🎊 Have I congratulate you @Lionfish? If I didn’t: consider it done!

@Mno hope you can fill in your time during your holiday with things you like to do despite the corona rules. Take care :heart:

Day 549 :coffee:
The management decided to shorten the opening times from all our stores in the Netherlands. I’m so happy with that! We keep our houres so we can work together at that time instead of alone.
It’s such a relief! Last days were mad :pensive:
Our Belgium stores are closed because of the lock down in that country. All the working staff is send home and are temporary unemployed and have to ask for unemployement benefits. I do not know how it works in Belgium but the fact that I read that scares me. What will my organisation do if the Netherlands decide for a totall lock down? :thinking: Am I loosing my job?
That’s my rambling head, it needs a total shut down as well…
I just started to take a Valerian supplement, I want my calm back!
But hé: I do not drink and a have no cravings. Yes I eat loads of chocolat during this days. That and Netflix are the only things I look forward to. I’m not in my best mental shape right now.
But I’m doing it.
Keep it safe people and take this virus serious! :pray:


Day :zero::five:

So here is the deal. I was not smoking more than half years. Now I am sort of back for about 3 months. It should not be that hart to quit this.
Although / yes / yes / yes / I know most of you will say it is not good to quit 2 addictions at once / / / hey / / / I am not quiting this one - I am changing it into other addiction - workouts! :muscle: :mechanical_arm:

And “I am not quiting this one - I just don’t want it anymore” (Allen Carr). Now speaking about sports - it should be tricky because of my one hand is very weak. I will need to train my brains at the same time a little bit to figure out a lot of “How’s” :sweat_smile:

:no_smoking: 01


All my lovelies congrats @Frantasticooo 300, @ifs 500, @Eke 600 !!! I’m celebrating you all three with sunny weather and birds singing for early spring. Your sobriety rocks :facepunch::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Checking in at the end of my day 4.


Now thats good advice
