Encouragment to all of you battling the devil on your shoulder. One day at a time, one mile at a time...

Inch by inch,
Life's a cinch.
Yard by yard,
It's mighty hard.

Wow, so much great support here.

Yes Plaid, I have a sponsor and my book is the green one, which I am half way through. I am getting close to doing my first step at my meeting.

You are great too! Thanks Jaybro and Perswig too!

I would love to climb with you Plaidman, but I'm in Texas with no plans to hit the west coast for at least a year.

Hey Terrie, Sounds like the wedding was a drag. Wish I had been there to keep you company. You must have been having a down day. Given the bright, interesting and outgoing woman you are I'm sure if you we not feeling yourself otherwise you would have thawed that bunch up a bit!!! Are you at the Gunks? I haven't been down yet this season. As the weather here in the Northeast has permitted I have been up in New Hampshire working the slabs and cracks preparing for my trip to Toulumne at the end of August. See you in September. Bill

Been lurking in the darkness. Never wanting to chine in for my own reasons. Periodically checking this thread after a good hangover. I have always had the taste for hops so it made excuses at first, "you just moved to town, nobody wants climb with you after work or on the weekends, just have a beer. How about one or maybe six more?" Seemed appropriate at the time... As I gained the few partners that were mostly unavailable due to the family life I continued to interject my reasoning. Finish a climb in SEKI, thinking wow that was runout give me a beer, or the often repeated "lets go climbing tomorrow, but I drank too much the night before, so lets take it easy..." Fast forward, I meet a lady friend who will actually belay me and climb hard to. Yet here I sit empty with a Courtright trip in front of me for the weekend, and I am over it. Guess what I am saying crawling is fine by me to.

What up Plaid - come down to SEKI!

Why is it that alcoholism is the only disease that you get yelled at for having?

Just a thought for the day on finding all those reasons to pick up...


Justification and moralization is like masturbation - in the end you're just f*#king yourself.

Stay strong out there gang! We can do this sobriety thing.

After any real length of sobriety which is accompanied by a relapse, slip, loss of faith, loss of hope, etc there is always that little gremlin on your wing f*#kin' with you. As James McMurtry sings, "I don't want another drink, I only want that last one again". Hang close to your tribe Hank, they'll love you until you love yourself.
