Roll Call

Okay... we had almost no comments today which means one of a few things, you guys have decided you don't like me anymore and found some other place on the internet to go hang (such an alcoholic thinking about myself first), or maybe you're busy having fun (I hope) but maybe you're sitting in pain, alone, not wanting to tell anyone how you feel. I've heard lots of times that's our disease way keep us sick. I know when we're in an ugly spot the last thing we want to do is reach out. But keeping it all to ourselves just makes it worse.


Hi, My name is Emily and I'm feeling better, despite the hot weather. heheh, J/K

No really, I'm feeling so much better. When I close my eyes and feel my feelings, the feeling I feel is content. For that I am grateful, its been awhile.

K, now your turn.........

  1. Hi everybody!! I'm here, just away from my computer. I'm going to have 5 months tomorrow!! I'm in long island, I've been sitting with my sick aunt, it sucks!!!!!! I actually told someone that I'm an alcoholic, my uncle was actually really cool about it. He liked that he had a DD. For the night! Anyway, have a good night I'm off to bed soon!!

  3. Yes, I am here too. Always encouraged that it get's better in time. This comes from one who is rather happy but with a nasty vice. I am here Emily often reading and knowing I need to be at a better place to post. I have a blahh.. blahh. thing with my myself right now. Keep it going...

  4. Although I read daily, I can't always relate so therefore don't post. We are all so different, just share that common bond of a terrible disease. Some posts lend themselves to commenting but many do not. Doesn't mean we are not here and not reading - just that we (I for one) can't relate.

    Life is good - very good!! Hope everyone reading this can say the same.

  5. I read everyday too - sometimes just not in the space where I can think of anything to say.... today is day 38 - I'm going to one to two meetings a day, praying and trying to keep busy because work is slow - it's good to know you're all out there -

    Thanks for this blog, Emily :)

  6. Emily, I'm another one who looks forward to reading every day. I feel I'm at a good place in my life for maybe the first time in my life. I will have 3 years sober Dec. 14 and am so grateful and thank God everyday. I spent so many years of my life in a semi-fog and sometimes a total fog; it's just good to feel and be a part of life again. You bring so much to so many. And I'll always come back. Thank you for giving us this blog to come to.

  7. I'm still lurking - I read everyday even if I don't post! I had 13 months this week and it DOES get better. This is a great place to come to "keep it green" (one of my favorite platitudes because it's key to recovery) - recover or repeat, right?

    Appreciate the blog, all the posters and posts and YOU, Emily! :) xxoo
