Cake ... of course, lots and lots of it, and you can have my share too 'cos I'm cutting down on sugar. :D

Re: The Six Month Challenge

Hello everyone. I'm on day 60. I thought I would skip the 3 month challenge and take a leap of faith and come straight to the 6 month challenge. Is it alright if I join you?

Re: I Will Not Drink Today Because..............

I will not drink today because I want to make the most of these precious hours and alcohol would rob me of that.

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Hi Clanger and Arcturus! :) Very well said, Arcturus. I think we expect too much of ourselves ... I know I did. I thought that once I stopped drinking, everything would just fall into place like magic. I didn't reckon on allowing myself to recover. :lol: What you say makes a lot of sense. We've been...

Re: PAWS (Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome)

Thank goodness for this thread! Now I understand why, at day 55 AF, I feel like I'm dragging around a body of lead, wandering around the kitchen not remembering where anything's kept and having the concentration span of a fruit fly. So now that I'm AF and needing to learn how to cope with life, I al...

Nothing alcoholic has passed my lips today ... not even a drop of mouthwash. :D

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Good evening. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm on day 55 now. I've been feeling very tired for days now and can't seem to shake it off. I think it's more psychological though, and not physical. Having managed to get AF, I'm now wondering what to do with the rest of my life ... it's exciting and sc...

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Thank you Trojan and Will. Oh my goodness, I didn't expect anyone to remember me! That's so nice. :D I've found out that, when you're flying high on that 'pink cloud', you feel like you can do anything on your own ... but when the pastel pink begins to fade, there's nothing as good as the support, e...

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Hello everyone. I haven't done any of the challenges before - in fact, I haven't been on the site for a long time - but I have now been alcohol free for 53 days. Is it alright if I jump in with this challenge? I got a bit complacent for a while, thinking I had cracked this sober thing, but I'm findi...

Re: NOTICE BOARD

Hi everyone. Just to say that I'm stepping away from B.E. 7 day/week work commitments mean that I'm not able to spend as much time in here to help people as I would like. I just feel that I'm swiftly popping in and out all the time. As well as that, I just want to shout off the rooftops about my exp...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Hi folks. It's a week since I took my 'vow of sobriety' and I've remained true to it. I feel really good just now, both in mind and body. I think the action of taking a vow, to me anyway, was different to just making a decision and that's why I'm able to keep to it. I've taken away the option for me...

I definitely wont be drinking today or tonight because I'm happy just now and things are going great. I'm not going to let anything spoil that.
