I'm still keeping up with your news - and you are amazing <:)>

Distract, distract and distract yourself even further swordie. We both know it doesn’t solve anything.

Thanks Tads - a good reminder for me tonight - struggling a bit but won't give in.

Re: Regrouping

A very sheepish Good Morning :oops: Well I certainly found out where complacency gets me! It was so stupid - wasn't craving or even particularly fancying a drink, but HRH poured me a glass of wine while we were on Skype with no 1 son, and I drank it... and another and another (repeat). So I have had...

Re: Regrouping

Cannot tell a lie - I have drunk 4 glasses of wine - because of family reasons with son no 1 - won't go into details for now....

So sorry I have broken my sober run.

Re: Regrouping

Morning So very sorry to hear about your friend's ex Debs, and your brother Tads. Both situations bring 'the alcohol problem' into sharp focus - and illustrate just how bloody hard it is to get a grip on it. Tads the only thing I can offer is advice which I was given some many years ago when I was w...

Re: Regrouping

Happy Friday everyone \:)/ I'm in a bit of a funny old place at the moment. On 31st May I decided that I would not drink for a month. Since then I have only had 2 glasses of wine and honestly absolutely minimal wobbles! This is so unlike me (unless I am unwell) and even when HRH is having his usual ...

Re: Regrouping

Hooray - it's stopped raining \:)/ HRH will be pleased - I sent him out to the workshop yesterday to start building an ark, (a man needs a hobby) and even though I called him last night (not too loudly - I am a considerate neighbour), he didn't come indoors. I put his hearing aid battery in a safe p...
