There is NO reason anyone on this app should relapse this weekend IF they seek support here BEFORE giving in…
SO here is my ask…if you are struggling this weekend please reach out here for support. This is a worldwide app so support is available 24/7.
If you are not struggling please reply with your plans to stay sober for the weekend as a positive example for someone who might be struggling…There are lot of people here who have been sober a long time.
Im getting accupunture. Going to the gym. Nephews 6th bday party. Yoga. Lunch with friends. Oh and walking the neighborhood in a blowup dinosaur costume lol (someone did it during covid and it made my day and well why not? I can laugh at myself)
Me and my wife are leaving for the beach at 5am tomorrow morning, and going to see a standup comedy show in Atlantic City tomorrow night. ( Tom Papa), pretty funny. We’ll be home sometime Sunday, and than we’ll probably just spend the rest of the holiday relaxing at the house 100% sober and rested for work on Tuesday.
I treated myself to a special lunch today to get me in the right mood. Set up our new hot tub, bought some tie dye supplies to work on with the kids, basically just staying busy. Tomorrow my daughter is marching in a parade so we’ll have some nice family fun. We also have a birthday party to go to tomorrow so I’ll be checking in here and then executing my exit plan!
This is motivation I NEED! I stayed sober Friday night and will continue to throughout the Memorial Day weekend. Getting my hair, nails and go shopping will keep my occupied Saturday, Sunday is church, Monday I will deep clean my whole house. I have to stay busy busy busy!!!
Just finished up some yoga and about to
get ready for a run. The I have lunch with an old friend today and hanging out with my Dad in the afternoon. We might go out to eat if he is feeling up for it later. Might stop by my sister’s since she is a few houses down. (Which used to be triggering for me because her husband was a good drinking buddy of mine. They support my not drinking so now we are just talking buddies.)
Sunday- probably another run, then brunch with Dad and hanging out with him or my sister. We might go to the zoo with my nephews.
Monday- doing a workout called the Murph for the first time. I’ve been wanting to do it for a few years now and haven’t but got roped into it and I’m actually really excited. Will probably have brunch with a coworker/friend after since she is going to the workout.
.-For some it’s when everyone cracks their second/third drink.
-For others it can be shots and repeating stories!
-And others it’s the 3,4,5,6 or 7 person that asks if you’re sure you don’t want a drink
I’m spending the weekend with my senior parents. Honestly, I’m not even sure they know it’s Memorial Day weekend (we’re a non military/introverted family). Helping out doing some yardwork and Spring/Summer cleaning. Lots of iced tea!
For who right now struggles: you are strong, believe me. I’m so proud of you that you are still here alive, standing and breathing. If you will ever feel so lonely, remember me and write to me. I will do my best to feel you better.
No memorial day where I live
But having good plans to get me trough an extra long weekend because of Pinksteren/Pentecost.
Yesterday I’ve worked the whole day.
Today (sunday) going for a walk with hubby, do some housechores and in the evening a dinner with my brothers family.
Tomorrow another walk somewhere and maybe going to the cinema.
