Hi all, well, I have been back and forth here for quite some time.. took several months off to work on staying drunk.. nearly lost my job (again) and am sitting here thinking, I wish I could go to another meeting this afternoon.. On Monday, I drank before going into work, the girls called me on it and soon called my husband to pick me up.. bosses found out.. yesterday I decided instead of getting drunk again over it I would get my ass to a meeting.. went to 2. got up today, went to another... I got called into a special meeting with my bosses today fully expecting to get fired or at the very least, written up.. instead, they talked to me about what happened, what I am doing about it and are giving me a week off to dig into my meetings and will re-evaluate afterwards.. they said they love me and value me as an employee but most of all, truely care about my personal health and family.. I can't believe how kind and careing they were!!! I don't want to mess it up again.. I want sobriety! I need a new sponsor!!! I must be accountable! Oh, how I hate this effing disease! But, I have another chance.. GOD is good! Thanks for reading this. kari

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
