I found peace of mind

Hi everyone,

Havent posted in a while. Been really busy and Ive been doing well without much I needed to talk about. I still check in every day or so.

I have found peace of mind. I went through the stages of greiving over my break-up, and Ive reached acceptance. Today will be my thirtieth day of being sober. I realized a couple of weeks ago that it feels good to be sober. Once I came to terms with what happened a month ago, I started to feel better about myself. I am still ashamed of what I did, but it still helps to talk about it. I want to ensure that this never, ever happens again. Even so, it did provide closure for me. That was a chapter of my life that is now closed. Ive been picking up the pieces of my life and moving forward.

Work has picked up like crazy. Its only wednesday and I already have fifty hours for the week (starting sunday) I havent had a day off in two and a half weeks. While I was dealing with issues, there was very little work, and I had nothing but time to drown my sorrows. Now I want time for myself, but I cant get it. Ive been talking to a couple of women with mutual interest, but I just dont have time to date right now. Just my luck!

Just wanted to post and say I made it! And this time its for real. Thanks to everybody for the support you have all given me.

Happy Holidays to all,

- wireless

((((((((((HUGS TO WIRELESS))))))))))

I was wondering about you! =) I figured that you were busy with work. Things will slow down, (let's hope!) then you can begin to pursue all kinds of 'zero cool' activities.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year. I hope you get some time to rest and relax.

I'm so glad that you are sober. That's really hard to do. I think about you and what you're up to, mostly when I'm at work... Some of the songs on the (country) radio station remind me of you! hehe I know you said that you don't really care for country all that much, but some of them are so empowering! And men sing them, and they are about the 'West'... Stuff like that. Or, being out on the road. You have to do with all those things. =)

I would say that I've prayed for you, but I haven't. I haven't been praying at all lately. I am thinking that I will give it a shot again, would you mind me mentioning you?

Take Care,
~Amanda~

Hi camer, thanks so much. I feel like Ive really accomplish something big by coming through this. That which doesnt kill me will only make me stronger - and it almost killed me a few times. I learned so much about myself. I definately have a new understanding of myself. I feel kind of silly being proud of it, because I know it happens to everyone from time to time, but I still do. I might even dare to say that Im happy now, and I feel good about myself.

Hi Amanda, long time no type! You are such a sweetie. Really, you are a great person, and wise beyond your years. No, I dont mind you praying for me one bit. I think about you too, and I hope things are going well in your life. You are definately zero cool! I consider you a good friend along with a lot of other people on this site. Thats kind of funny, considering Ive never actually met any of you.

The guy I was working with last night is going through the same thing I went through. His girlfriend went out of town, and he just found out shes been dating another guy. I told him about what happened to me, and was able to offer advice since I was in his shoes not too long ago.

Im spending christmas with my mom, then I have a date on Sunday. She works nights at the restaurant that I go to nearly every night after work. I really like her, she is really sweet, nice and interesting. Im looking forward to getting to know her. I know she likes me too. Should be fun.

Everybody have a great christmas and an awesome new year

Congrats wireless,
Tell me that acceptance is a beautiful place. Like a place of peace and waterfalls and all that good shit. Where colors are so rich like none we've ever seen. I haven't as yet reached the top of the mountain to see that place in the next valley. Describe it, that way it'll keep those of us still climbing interested in getting there.

Hi everyone,

My thread got buried!
I was in the neighborhood, so I thought I'd stop by and say hello to all of you.

Ive been doing very well. Better than I have in years. Im so glad that ridiculous relationship ended. Im so glad ive quit drinking. Ive been sober for well over a month now, and its great. Still dont have much of a social life, but I do have peace of mind. Ive been dating a very special girl. She works nights as well, so our schedules synch up pretty well. She is such a cool person, a total sweetheart, and we have so much in common. We have similar histories (with drugs and wildness, and having grown out of it all.) She is totally into me, and I really like her a lot. It feels good.

To anybody out there reading this and dealing with anguish over a breakup, know that there is definately a light at the end of the tunnel. Just keep on truckin and you'll make it. I did.

Wireless,

I am so happy that you are doing so good. That is great. I have been following your threads for awhile now and you have come a long way. I think that is so cool that you have been sober for over a month. Sometimes after you are dry for awhile, you look at things rationally and things make more sense. Your mind becomes much clearer. I am happy that you met a new girl. Take things slow and just enjoy. You are so deserving of that. I am so happy that you finally found peace. Happy new year to you wireless and I will keep you in my prayers.

Jewel
