Marcelor's late Tuesday check-in

Feeling down today. Read an entry in my journal from two years ago and it feels as if I am in the exact same state as I was in then!

Will try to get a few things done before dinner:

Email S  Would not have done this if I hadn't checked in here!

Plan for tomorrow

Write a list of all things that are bothering me right now

Spend 20 minutes on my chapter


"there is nothing obviously needing to be done, no iminant deadlines. This kind of day is exactly what I need to master."

clement ci - day 199 attempting abstinence, 119 from self

Oh, i like that pic. one_day_at_a_time That's important for me to remember.

Abstinence from unplanned time.

  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"

Mole's check-in

Thank you dear kind jalla. I thought at first it was a picture of an egg and pondered about fertility and growth, and the comforting clucking of chickens and their celebratory squawks when they lay - as we should too with our small achievements. A stone is lovely too, something solid, grounding to hold in the hand for this one day, and then perhaps another.
