  • Applause for Day 10 and 11 Emails

    I just wanted to give a shout out for the excellent Day 10 and 11 emails. I find these mini-essays such a great running start every day.

    Micro - I loved the elephant analogy. "Don't spook the elephant" is going to be one of my catch phrases through the rest of this effort whenever I start looking ahead instead of focusing on today's challenges.

    Kary May - the message about anhedonia could not have been better timed. Yesterday I felt so gray and unmotivated. I had to keep reminding myself that I was not "doing nothing," but that I was changing a pernicious habit, and it just looked like I was doing nothing!

    Thanks for the effort you put into these - they are deeply appreciated, and very very helpful.

    Seconded. I laughed out loud (literally, not just in the social media sense) at "Don't plan to never drink again. (Gahhhhhhhh! Elephant rampage!)"

    Links for those not signed up for the emails:
    Day 10 - Saddle Up Your Elephant
    Day 11 - A Fairy Tale
    My limit: Women's BTB. Solidarity, sisters!
    My plan: No unplanned second or third drinks.

      Thank you, juliezed Your words mean so much. I noticed that the songs for Day 10 and Day 11 are the same, and even though I like Micro's song-I did pick a different song. Hope we get it straightened out.

            I also very much appreciate the Day 10 and 11 posts...I have read Day 10 three times and Day 11 twice already today...as I move thru this process of abstaining it is powerful to have chosen this paths, the guides, and to accept their guidance...thank you for spending your time and energy to so articulately express where we are now on the path and what we might notice as we continue on...

                  I also am so enjoying the daily emails. I did forward the fairy tale email to my niece, thought it was ok as this is a public forum. Please let me know if that isn't ok.

                    Kekohu , sure it's ok, it's fantastic that you forwarded it to your niece. That's why MM does Dryuary, to open up our doors and let the public get to know us.
