About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Taking a break from posting, commenting, and visiting for the time being

While I sort out some study!
Inspired by Tab's excellent non-codependent prioritization, in that she is putting other things first, I am following suit, and without closing down the blog, I'll leave it on, but not post. For the time being anyway.

Tab said in her post:
I have become a full on Blogger-Betty.
Nothing wrong with that in the least,
except that I struggle to get off my blog roll
when it comes time for other things that
need to get done.
So.
I have decided to close down this blog.
Time to let go in my blogging for awhile.
I have some personal and important goals
I plan to meet this year.

The first goal being overcoming procrastination.

Blogging has become so habitual for me I honestly
believe it is time to let it go for now so I can pay
more attention to other things in my free time.
Important goals I hope to achieve in my lifetime.

I can completely relate to Tab in this post!
Also. because I can just as easily use comments and visiting other people's blogs as an study distraction, I will be avoiding that as well..
That's the plan anyway. I need a hands off blogging approach for the time being. Perhaps things will settle down and I will find there is room for it later, but at the moment its too easy to use as a distraction to other, far more important study commitments.
I would like to go blogging 'cold turkey' for at least a month, but I know I will end up right back at square one if I get back into it again in that I will feel I need to go and visit everyone else's blogs to see how you are getting on, and before I know it, big chunks of time will be used up. Perhaps I will find another way of avoiding study. Doubtless I will find some pointless cleaning or something as a way of procrastinating. Who knows!

So I wish you lots of luck with your recovery, and thank you for all your input, support and kind comments, but I will be 'under the radar', for the time being, solving problems of a different kind.
Very best of luck with all your recoveries and various VERY REAL challenges and I will report back at some point, but I don't know exactly when at this stage. Thanks all the same everyone! It's been very nice getting to know you all. Too nice!

Well Phhhffft!
I just found you, and now you are running away! I totally understand. I had to back down alot because I would come home from work and next thing I know I am going to bed at 10:00! The entire time I was on the computer.
Good luck. As you know, it is from one addiction to another.
