Excuses, excuses, excuses!

I could say I have been very busy lately, and that would be true. I could say, I needed to let one thing sit on the backburner for awhile or I was going to go crazy and that would be true to.

But here is what I've learned about letting my involvement with the sober blogging community and my forum family slide,

I miss you guys like crazy. You're my people.

You actually get what the world looks like from  my perspective. You know what it's like to move about in a world that is going to hell minute by minute, second by second, and not drink. You know how hard it is to long for an escape from the madness and watch while everyone else around you chooses booze as their escape route, leaving you standing as the only one "present and accountable."

I haven't fallen. Nor am I going to. Just writing this has given me fortification. But I've probably thought about succumbing more lately than I have in a long time. I've uttered the phrase, "I wish I could have a drink" more than I want to.

But I won't.

You and I, we are a special force in this world. We are stronger and better (Now we just need a secret handshake.) than those who drink. We are. We know that because we all tried so hard to convince ourselves for years that we were being the best we could be while we drank. Now, we know we couldn't.

For those of you still struggling to join us. Please don't give up. We need you. We need more of the strongest and the best in the world today. Now is the time for you to be the best that you can be.

May the force be with us!


  1. I missed you too. I am wondering almost every day what is happening to you, what you are doing and why in hell you are not writing. Even a short note. :) But I understand... no pressure. Holiday season is crazy and busy and look what is happening in the world. Keep in touch, my friend.
    Are you still moderating the chat? I am planning to drop by next Wednesday.

  2. We are a special force. And every time someone realizes that they can choose life, that they can feel good, that happiness is available, we win.

    Glad to hear you are good!

  3. Great to hear from you Kary. I'm back, on day 15 today. It's a tough time of year. I sometimes think I'm crazy for stopping now. So many triggers! But having you and my sober friends helps. I want to be a part of this special force, not constantly on the sidelines. Welcome back. A x

  4. nah you don't want any of that dumb shit. sober is cool, have you forgotten??!! xx

  5. Ahhh, the force is strong in you my friend. I love it when I see a post from you in my reader. You've made my day!
