Hello everyone! Hope you all are doing well :) Since things have been a bit "quiet" on here lately, I thought I'd borrow an idea I saw on another forum I read daily. It's called "Roll Call" and you just fill in the info you feel comfortable posting....I noticed on the other forum that several women realized that they all lived near one another and were able to get together face-to-face and it has really seemed to help them in their sobriety struggles. If you don't want to fill one of the lines in, just leave it blank :)
Marital Status: Married 17 years this November
Kiddos: 2 boys, ages 10 & 14
Issues: procrastination, selfishness, setting & then working towards goals, that pesky disease monster frequently trying to tell me "you can be a normal drinker" and trying too hard sometimes to save the world.
Goals: Work thru and conquer my character defects one day at a time, set goals and work towards them, stop trying to save the world and focus on myself and help those still suffering the nasty thralls of this disease on a daily basis whenever and however I possibly can :)
Sobriety Date and/or Status: December 22, 2010
So, with that, look forward to learning a little about those that follow Em's blog and may not comment, but merely read. You never know when you might find out that some of us may live just down the street and be a wonderful source of friendship & support :) Like they say, "sobriety begins with one alcoholic talking with another alcoholic".
Hope everyone had a great weekend and big cyber-hugs to everyone!
