The quality question exercises are a great way of turning all of the work that I have done on self assessing into action steps. Changing the why’s to how’s is easy to do on paper, but in reality will be difficult. The direction of not trying to answer the how’s immediately and let the subconscious do the work sounds really good…we will see how that works out!
Made it through the weekend sober, thanks to a few of you on here. As always, I appreciate the advice, the openness and the encouragement. For those of you who are working through this book and have yet to post your thoughts, feelings, struggles on here, I highly encourage you to do so. You will be surprised to find out that almost all of us are dealing with very similar demons.
Another step forward!

Hope you are doing well.
Man, I had to stop the whirring & get on this blog. I’ve realized that without the anesthetizing effects of wine I can get a little manic & start spiraling & whirling into “to do” despair SO I took a break and logged on.
Rome was not built in a day. Yes, I still have things to do but if I pushed myself to do them, I may have hit the bottle which is totally contrary to my long term goals.
I got some things accomplished – hit some roadblocks but I cannot take on the new hurdles just now.
I need a break.
Thanks for being here.

Hello @brighterdays and hello @karakucha i.e. me (again) on Day 16 (again)
Failing is only failing if you give up, right?
Well here I am trying (again).
This time it feels more permanent – every time I reread the book, I get more insight & every time I’ve gone back to using, the lows were worse.
Now it does not feel as emotional hard. I’m more resigned. What seemed impossible before is now a relief.
