    It’s been a while since I’ve posted much, but I have been here reading almost every day. It’s great to see some of you I started here with doing so well, and always nice to see new comers too. From every story told, every experience related, every event shared, I get something useful I can use in my own life.

    I have been on again off again with the drinking most of the summer. I’d go a week, then stay off a week, then back too it. Due to work, I all but stopped running and going to the gym, but was doing a lot of running for work, so I’m not totally trashed, physically. It was a crazy summer, as always, and I guess I just didn’t have the time to put into any lifestyle changes. Yea, yea, excuses, excuses.

    Anyway, today is day 11 for me, but I’m trying not to count. I’m feeling good again, better than I have all summer. While I dont know how well I will do this time, I figure every sober day is a good one. My wife is going away this weekend, and I’m planning to get lots of stuff done, and not do what I did the last time.

    Take care,
    God bless you all, without you I would not be this far

    Hi Taz,

    First, you pal, CONGRATS ON 1 YEAR!!! ++++

    What am I doing? I’m back to running, it’s been a slow start due to some injuries,but getting better each day.

    I’m trying to get back to some of my old hobbies, and some new ones.

    I’m listening to my best friend in the world, my wife.

    I read here a lot.

    My wife has me on the “Body ecology diet” Google it, along with alcoholism, and you will find some interesting information.

    Trying to get closer to God (more prayer, more services).

    Thanks for asking, feel free to offer suggestions!

    Best,
    S

    Thanks for the congrats on the year Steve.

    Sounds right now like you are moving in a good direction, good health, spirituality, keep working on those, they did help me a lot.

    The best thing IMHO one can do in life to improve it is to just live in today, One Day at a time!!!!

    Keep an open mind to anything that will help you become a better person, toss aside any prejudice you may have against things that may help you.

    Keep in mind that the easier softer way may in the long run turn out to be some good old fashioned self examination & change.

    We did not get struck drunk in an instant, we took lots of actions to gain the staus of alcoholic, and it is fool hearty of us to think we will get struck sober!!! We need to take actions to get sober.

    Steve keep at it my friend, there are plenty of paths to sobriety keep working at it, it will come if we work at it.

    not to digress, but I LOVE that diet/philosophy, too. Second only to total abstinence from alcohol, it has really strengthened me.

    You are lucky to have such a wise friend in your wife.

    thanks for sharing.

    Hi again,

    Carol, you are like the rock of 12 Step National Meetings, it’s always nice to read your kind words of wisdom and encouragement.

    Taz, I do try to keep an open mind. Although I have my reasons for avoiding AA, I have read a lot of the BB on line, and have gotten a lot out of it..

    Astro, thanks, that’s something I got from you AA’ers, keep coming back, so I’m back.

    Rowan, great job as greater!, you make this place what it is!

    Miss C, from everything I read, it makes a lot of sense, the whole diet/philosophy. And you are right, so lucky!

    Where can I see a list of what foods you are allowed to and not allowed to eat on the Body Ecoloy Diet? It looks like it has many of the same theories of the diet that I’ve been following (the Specific Carbohydrate Diet), and I’m curious if the list of legal and illegal foods is similar.
