I’ve been battling my diseased thinking over the course of a 16 month job search. I have moments of clarity where I truly believe in myself but more times I am my worst critic.

Who here has read Dry by Augusten Burroughs? It’s about his time at rehab and after while he worked at an ad agency in the 90s. 5/5 stars.

So quite in our bowl! How’s everyone doing? I don’t know about anyone else, but with this quarantine I am totally acting out in other areas of my life. Sugar and online shopping 😩. Anyone else?

I am finally at the point where I admit I have a drinking problem. Two nights ago I binged, and I’m still hungover. I’m tired of recovery taking so much time and energy out of me. Thanks for listening

I feel so badly for active alcoholics today. So grateful I’m not “in my cups”. Just a reminder that there are a ton of speaker tapes on Spotify! Stay in touch, people.

Hi New York and those in AA! If you have a year or more sober, intergroup needs help. They’re closing due to corona and need volunteers!

I had an opportunity to speak at an NA women’s luncheon this past weekend. I love being of service. Takes my mind off of a dismal job search and reminds me I have so much to be grateful for!
