I agree with you, that’s why I like you. And you make me laugh often haha


#42

Yeah, I guess I run fast comparable to some. Then theres the guys I’ve run with in the past who laugh if you can’t do a 15 minute 5k. Definitely not me.


#43

I am a survivor. Thanks @Jessi.lynn. I’ve survived anorexia/bulimia, ovarian cancer, physical and sexual assaults, rape, etc. Maybe I can survive alcohol too.


#44

You’re not only going to survive it, you’re going to thrive!


#45

Well they better get ready to laugh at me


#46

Humor is good for recovery. Releases endorphins. We actually had humor group in rehab.


#47

Thanks. My mom said something that really resonated with me over the weekend. She said that I would never consider not complying with my medication regimen because it keeps me alive. Which is 100% true. But it took me years of nonconpliance before “it clicked.” Same with alcohol. And somehow, that helped this to “click.” I feel a sense of peace and understanding that I haven’t in a long time.


#48

Liberating huh? That’s when it clicked for me too and I actually got sober


#49

Yeah I’ve been thinking about it since she said it Saturday morning. I wouldn’t miss my meds on a bet. That’s my sanity. So why the fuck would I drink alcohol? It’s like throwing my medicine in the trash. How did I not see that before? I feel so much freer now.


#50

I am kind and funny. I’m a good friend.

I really like this thread!


#51

Let me add that you’re a brave fighter too! Whatever hits you, you stand back up :+1::muscle: Huge respect :kissing_heart:


#52

Life would be a sad place without humor


#53

I have survived cancer twice, physical, sexual and mental abuse. Alcoholic parents. AVN hip replacement spine injections and another dead hip
I refuse to be a statistic I will be a survivor and overcome alcohol too


#54

Yeah you fucking will and you fucking are! I think you and I have really similar stories. And thanks @Niiina. I’m out of likes again. Damn it.


#55

I think likes should be unlimited…we should make a petition


#56

Yea it seems like it. We will have to chat sometime :slight_smile:


#57

I agree that we need to also need to look at our positive aspects. Focusing on negative things puts one in a negative state of mind.


#58

& a very nice one I might add!(:


#59

His beard was the higher power of TS for a time. We prayed to the beard.

I am: a caring and forgiving man
