SNOW!  I love snow...everything about it.....shoveling (even thou it kills me, I love it)....We have like 4-6 inches here in the US.  I'm very grateful to be sober today and able to be out in the snow smile

    That's brilliant Misssy.  I love the snow too, but I live near the coast here in England, so we don't get too much of it.

    It's just lovely to hear you so happy.

    Ah Misssy, you are enjoying your inner child-like self.  What a happy thought.  Way before alcohol in our lives... there was such simple happiness in moments... such as SNOW.  Have a lovely, fun time.  It will do you good.  I am smiling as I post this... happiness is infectious, I hope !

      Hi Misssy,

      I did laugh out loud at your gladness for my smiling... I must come across as a right old misery guts !  I am fairly negative, to put it mildly.  I was just glad to share in your lovely time.

      All good wishes,

      Alonangel 😄

      Hey Thank you Robin...the downside for today is that all the snow is still here...and icy and freaking cold.  This is April...we usually have rain or 60 degree weather...it is 30 right now.

    Aw, lucky you misssy,don't think we've had any this year. As aonangel said, happy memories of happy times as a child and building snowmen when my children were young. Looking out the windows the morning after snow has fallen is awesome.

    Though on the dark side, nightmare memories of having to brave the snow because you've run out of wine. But you'd climb Everest if you needed drink..haha!!

    Its so good to wake up sober..well done you ☃😀

      Hi Paper fairy,

      We might not have the snow... but we got to share the happiness.  Good on Misssy.  Positives are wonderful.  How are you getting on (the old horse)?  I am managing to stay "on the saddle", so to speak!

      I will never forget..putting my 8 month old down for a nap in a torential down pour 29 years ago....and running barefoot to the liquor store...for a 6 pack of beer!  My heart was pounding...I knew it was wrong to leave him....no one was home...it was 5 blocks away...I was drenched from head to toe...and relieved when I got home with the "goods".  What we do for alcohol

      yes, running way from responsibilites is the story of our lives...trying to forget and struggle on is what we do since we have to...we are still here and ALIVE and keep it in mind....let us all be cheerful that we are alive!! Robin

      Lovely of you to ask about me. I'm surviving, like you. Naltrexone is working so I'm having days sober and 2/3 days a week drinking with N. I really suffer with insomnia and chronic fatigue though. So better than I was when drinking heavily but zombified a lot of the time. Progress though. Rome wasn't built in a day,as they say !! 

      Take care dear friend x

      Oh Paper fairy, it is indeed a rocky old road.  I think that it is great for you, having sober days.  I am still tapering down SLOWLY.  I want to get on to the alcohol free days, but... not yet happening.  I had one day ... when I was basically, alcohol poisoned. Not a great strategy !  I am taking the Nalmefene every day, as planned.  Up and down... like a yo-yo !

      Flapping away...

      Imagine we all got sober... totally sober... after all the **** !

      We would have a new faith.

      Competition for the name.

      I know... I don't get out enough...!!!

      I am glad that you are doing well, again.

      Blessings on you,

      Alonangel  xx 🎇
