    I have lapsed despite best intentions. I am carrying on with Day 15 and the Vision Board. I have had time to reflect on why I lapsed and very simply I did not follow on the 100% rule. I let the voice in and I gave it space to grow. I have started again and will re-boot the 30 days after these next two weeks. But what I want most is not to have to start the Day 1 again. I have done that too many times. I need to remain committed and to keep my resolve up; because without change I will be in exactly this same place in 1 month/6months time etc.

    In all honesty I didn’t want to own up to a relapse but having read some earlier comments its what you do having relapsed that is as important.

    So one day at a time. When I keep to this programme and invest in myself I succeed.

    So for all of you out there keep going and when the addiction voice kicks in just kick it right back out and move forward!! Keep to that 100% goal its gold dust!

    Great post, Christine.

    Yep, it is very disheartening having to start back at Day 1 yet again. I can’t remember if it was in this book or if I read it somewhere else, that counting days is very much an AA thing – and not something we necessarily have to do. I am always excited to wake up knowing I didn’t drink the night before. That really makes me happy! And I am trying to make how many days it has actually been, less important.

      Thank you stacyg16 – that is a good advice; it is always wonderful to wake up knowing that, “Yes, I didn’t drink yesterday”. I will gather my resolve and move forward on this. Thank you and Sinaqueena for your kind words and support.

    Thank you Sinaqueena

    I like your comment very much about Onwards. I will go now to the Thread you suggested. Everything I read here is inspirational and yes I shall start playing the music again. Isn’t there a line in some musical “pick yourself up, brush yourself down and start over again.” I have used that a few times recently.
    Best wishes
    Christine
