Ah Rex, that all sounds good, cancer and hematoma disappeared while the new love entered the scene!
and yeah, having just read a lot of "the book of love letters" , i'll say that the ones between older people sound a lot more appealing than all that rather , uh, slightly-silly-sounding "young" stuff.
(had to toss the book after a while, though, as it got a bit tedious. really, i got tired of it mostly because i'm convinced that i could do a lot better myself! as could you, and most of the people on this forum!)
good winter to you!
Good to hear you continue to mend! That F'n Sandy was quite the storm here in NY. Pretty much totalled my GF and her Brothers house's out in Rockaway Beach, so we've been out salvaging as much as we could and moving her in with me.
I guess it took a hurricane to finally blow her off the beach! It's also good to hear you and your new friend moving along in your relationship. Love is good to have in your life my friend.
I'm just a couple of days shy of my first year sober, and my life is totally back on track. I'm finally me again, and that's pretty cool! Have we heard anything from Stu and Jim lately? I hope that they're doing well.
Take care everyone, thanks for the help getting me back together, and I still stop in every now and then to see what's new. so stay well, and enjoy every sober day. This life of ours is a gift, way too preciuos to waste on alcohol.
Always great to hear from you my friend. Sorry to hear about the damage your loved ones are having to cope with but as long as no one was hurt they can build a new life.
Yes, J and my relationship seems to get deeper and more precious almost everyday. Your right, she is a good thing to have in my life.
A big, hardy congratulations on one year of sobriety but more than that it's wonderful to hear that you like the person you have again become.......and you're right, that's pretty cool. I'm so proud of you and hope sometime this next summer to maybe meet somewhere on two wheels.
Don't be a stranger here and call me whenever you feel like it.
Glad to know you're still hanging around and checking the forum daily. Good to hear that the campral is working for you. I don't know a thing about it but have always believed that there are several ways to accomplish almost anything. That of course includes living a sober life.
As I told Bob, don't be a stranger, read as much as you like and post when you're ready.
hey Firenailer, congratulations on your upcoming one-year sobriety and being back on track as yourself.
and good to see you drop in once in a while.
Good to hear that your back at it Brudda! I don't know anything about Campral, but if it makes things easier I'm all for it.
Keep trying my friend, sobriety is such a blessing and every day gets better. Booze is just an empty promise that won't lead any of us, anywhere good. Nothing but empty lies in the bottom of that bottle.
Rex - nothing would make me happier than to get together for a ride! And I will make that call. Time to start looking at maps for a spring trip. Blue Ridge Pkwy? Gettysburg and Antietam? You pick it and I'll meet you there.
Stay well everyone, just believe and don't drink today!
