    I know I could have created a plan on my own, but I need to be accountable and let someone else know what I'm trying to do. So, you and OMW are it! My taper police[;^)]
    I knew you were being accountable... that's why I'm so excited!!! :D

    As far as your taper police... I think Ariel will be the good cop and I'll be the bad cop. [}:)]

    Hi Chris. I was kinda wondering what happened to you because you weren't posting as much. You were my inspiration 7 weeks ago when I found this board. You can do it again and get back to living! I'm sure it won't be too bad since you haven't been on the pills that long. Looks like you have a great taper plan too. I'm wishing you the very best and we are all here for you.

    Hey Ariel! You're doing so great but I noticed you're not posting as much either. Hope everything is going well for you.

    Good Morning OMW!

    good idea you had here.
    Though after reading some of the posts, I feel like I'm waiting to play jump rope and jump in at the right time.
    Ummm, nope, I'm just going to jump.
    Just a bunch of lovable crazies here-trying to stay clean-one day at a time,eh?
    btw-what colour thread you using this time? red, black, orange?
    congrats on three weeks. And thank you for your honesty.
    to another 24!

    when the fear of staying the same is greater
    than the fear of change
    ...we change

    I'm available for a backup to BOAG's bad cop, Chris.[88]

    So, is there a "no bullsh*tting" policy now or is this Party Thread II? [88]

    Chris, I'm more than happy to be the good cop on your shoulder. I've posted my own ideas about tapering so many times that I'll just email ya. But I know you can do this sweetie.

    Renee, Fast, and Teresa--thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. Fast, you can bullsh*t on any thread I ever get, okay? Remember, my thread is your thread. [x2x]

    The fires are both to the north and south of me. Yes, honey...gratefully safe.[x2x]

    My mother, however, is a nervous wreck. She's 83 and lives on Long Island. She hasn't got any conception of California geography. She keeps calling me. Yes...Mommy....I'm okay. No...Mommy...the fire is not lapping at my toes. Mommy...look at a g-d map![88]

    My DIL's family lives outside of San Diego. They did a voluntary evacuation to my son's home in Huntington Beach. I think my son & DIL now have 7 people and 4 dogs living with them right now.[:u]

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the kind words. It's nice to be welcomed back unconditionally. :) Like I said before, the anxiety and depression got the best of me and I caved. First with alcohol, and then my DOC -plus some, in short order.

    I have a temp sponsor who is really awesome. She already has me working on an assignment that is based on the first step and I have to check in with her daily. I'll be going back to meetings as soon as I'm over the flu. BTW - got a flu shot two weeks ago! [xx(]

    I'm hoping the third time will stick. I have a travel plan, I just need to stick to the itinerary this time.

    Edit: Arlene - I think one bad cop will be enough. BOAG scares me! [88]

    Oh...honey...its all good. We'll let BOAG do her thing.[88]

    You have the detox flu....and I got a flu shot yesterday...am down today from the effects of it. Guess I needed it, huh?

    Glad to hear you have a sponsor, Chris. Mighty glad. I know...the anxiety and depression can be a mother-ph*cker. It's a lot to get past and very easy to undo all our work.

    Chris, you wrote that you went back to your DOC...and plus some. Do you mean you were taking more than were you left off or do you mean that you added another drug to your *repetoire?* I think either scenario is very telling regarding the powerlessness/Step 1. Yes?

    The itinerary, of course, is not to pickup even if.......:)
