You are missed


Ah, you make such a lovely home.

You betcha! Step mom’s stuffing was spot on. Got their lights all set up. Did a helicopter tour of the city at night (first helicopter ride evar). And had some pretty amazing conversations with sober-dad this year.

Happy holidays, lady!


@Longhorn! Damn fine day on this thread. Good on ya, scratching at five-hundo! :relaxed:


Sounds beautiful! From the food & lights to the aerial view (brave man btw!) Especially love the conversations with sober dad…that’s a real thankful Thanksgiving :slight_smile:️ Thrilled for you :hugs:


Doing great! No complaints here. I’ll hit 6 months next weekend :slight_smile:

How have you been?! Glad you took a break when you needed it, but so happy to see you back! You are an asset to this community, your positivity and advice has been missed.


I am so happy for you! Congratulations @TMAC :clap:t3: Hands down the hardest, yet best 6 mos ever! I’ve thought about you, your girl, your dad and even your new home & hope all is well & your enjoying life. Big hugs :hugs:


Wow, thank you! All that stuff is going great. My relationship w/ my Dad is the best it has ever been. We’ve built a solid foundation of mutual respect.

The house is coming along, my girlfriend is the best partner I could ask for in all this. Actually put up the xmas lights today/got the tree/decorated for our first christmas here!


@Behemoth Hey twin what’s up? If you fucked up don’t be embarrassed just come back and if you haven’t well talk to us!:blush:


Alright. Where ya at, @siand? :v: :heart:


Oh, twin, if I fucked up youd be the first to know, lol. I’m sorry I’ve been MIA recently. I’ve had quite a bit of things to deal with and just plain needed to be selfish and quite :zipper_mouth_face:

My wife has the BRACCA gene and two years ago had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Ever since there had been complications and she’s decided to get both implants removed and go without. I, while disappointed, told her it was her body and she should go for whatever she felt was necessary.

Then my son needed a bone scan for his IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). Then Thanksgiving, which I made it through, lol. Just needed some time away to collect. Stress kinda silences me if it gets overwhelming.

I’m lucky to have someone like you to check on me and it means more to me than you know. I was gonna come back on here over this weekend, but your message hurried it up by two days :slight_smile:


I’m so happy you didn’t drink and with these all these stressors as well! Prayers to your wife that’s difficult but she’ll feel so much better.

I’m watching you mister (that sounds creepy lol)


Thank you, I’ll be sure to tell her. It was tough, I won’t lie. There were points that I just had to take a walk or workout and blast music to quite the voices saying to grab a beer. But, I made it :slight_smile:

And it’s not creepy, lol. It’s nice to know someone’s got my back who has my problem


Alone time is good just know sometimes we isolate without realizing were doing it. I left here and that’s when I got into trouble and drank. But I’m back annoying as ever!


Not annoying… Let’s go with sometimes obnoxious :wink:


Heh, true story and this is me sober


Hope you are back for a spell. Need your sunshine here during these dreary winter days.


@Ballerchick22 i hope things are going better!


Hey I have dropped off the radar. Just been feeling really shit. Sober! But shit. Don’t feel like I have a huge amount to add at the moment.

Thank you for tagging me, that is actually a huge lift for me right now :heart:

I need to get back into morning meditation. Posting on here actually really helped me stick with it.


I love what you post!


Thanks Scott that’s really kind :heart:

I got a bit put off by a couple of comments/ threads on that felt quite negative and cliquey to me. But there are so many people posting so much good stuff on here (you included!) that I just need to look past that and get back into the community. It has helped me so much.


I agree it can be like that but that’s the nature of forums. I mute certain threads and bypass some posters and take what I need from the wise ones☺
