    Aww,@RubyRed I felt sad when I read about this being your first holiday season after your divorce 😭 it can be tough but I'm sure you'll be fine,all you Crafters make me jealous! I started a poncho for my daughter who lives in Portland back in February and it's still only the size of a baby bib😲 it's crochet and I just lack the mojo to work on it grrr!

    Same to you <3
    Good morning all :). Saw this group and thought I would post. I am a 50's male who is just starting the process of getting alcohol out of my life. Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

    The perfect time to get alcohol out of your life!!! Good for you :)

    @Ke22yB sorry your friend is such a "kitten"! Sounds very arrogant and I know I was too in my heavy drinking days,I always felt like I was right and everyone else was an idiot,sad to say karma really does come around and your friend will eventually get a wake up call,can't live life like that forever and nothing happens, congrats on your many years of not drinking πŸ‘ welcome @tim201200 this is a great group of people! Lorraine, excellent on the walking,I do daily just cuz too strenuous exercise triggers anxiety for me(dunno why) but walking has been my friend for years and it's awesome to have that time to think,waves to all and have a Fab AF day!

    Good Morn B) Wishing there were a need for these B) but it is rainy in my neck of the woods. Blah & Blah-er!!! I'm sitting in front of my "happy" light to get some serotonin flowing (?) BUT it is not a magic pill unfortunately. IT helps but it doesn't cure. So, I'm sitting here thinking about my thinking and decided to count my blessings to lift my mood and the first one I thought of is how thankful I am to be AF 18 months & sometimes counting.

    The plan for today is to go for a walk after work even though it is raining cause I have committed to this plan to actively lift my mood. I find that once I push myself to go, I'm fine and at the end I'm even finer knowing that I went through with it...just the thought of that small accomplishment lifts my mood and helps me to feel a bit better about myself.

    What works for you?

    Happy AF day to all <3
