    I'm in an ok place, it was a long drawn out day, a day I will never be proud of, but a day that is contributing to my path of sobriety ahead.

    Sorry to hear that you've had a hard day, but glad to hear that you were able to take some meaning from it.

    Wishing you a better day ahead tomorrow.

    What are you going to do for you tonight?

    Hey @pdm411 how are you going this weekend - I can see that you have been well supported here on the forums - let us know how you are travelling and what has been working for you to stay sober and on top of things ...(or at least keeping distracted )..

    Hi everyone welcome to tonight's Monday Meetup, our casual weekly catch up :) We will be live until 10pm AEST.

    Checking in with you to see how you went over the weekend?

    What are some tips or tricks you have for staying sober? Do you have much planned for the week?

    Tonight I thought we could focus on the concept of healthy ways to decrease stress.. what are some healthy distractions you might have which help reduce stress?

    I am grateful for my son, my friends, for my creative outlet and that I get to spend most of my time doing meaningful work that I'm passionate about.

    Today I am grateful for the people in my life . They give me such motivation to stay clean even just the fact that I can still feel connected to friends makes me feel grateful. I don't want to lose this.

    Today I am grateful for the rooftop garden in my building. I have planted a bunch of flower seeds and am enjoying the routine of watering then twice or three times a day. I am grateful to have this bit of greenery so accessible. And of course today I am grateful for not using..I am glad I'm not in the haze of substances..

    Hi @Azura , it is lovely you planted some seeds and look after the little garden.
    What flowers' seeds did you plant? It must be nice to watch them grow.
    And it seems you are grateful to friends you feel connected to.
    These are your strength, gratitude to what you have got, which then gives you strength to stay away from it.
