Looks terribly good, TC!

Today looks like an AC day, maybe, but grilled cheese sandwiches are good just any old day!

Right?

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi Lucy! Newt bagged it totally, just wanted to chime in and welcome you and hope that you stick around and post during your recovery period! Make a plan! Consider rehab if it is available and you can afford it, they can help you get off alcohol with medication to ease the pain plus they give you al...

Re: So what'ya drink instead?

Hello! The new Canada Dry Lemonade Ginger Ale is just pretty tasty! I still stand by just plain old fizzy water, maybe with a twist of lemon or lime! The best alcohol substitute that has zero calories that I have ever found! Well, coffee and tea, too, of course! Going to go back to something I used ...

Yea, Good on You, Trojan, 6 Years! Splendid! You have done so well! Weather is off and on here! AC one day, cuddle up in the old comforter the next! And we just had snow in the high country a week or so ago! Lots of snow pack in the Rockies and the higher areas of the state! Makes one kind of worry ...

Hello! :\: Just wanted to thank all you Brits for the cold reception you gave the Orange Buffoon on his dreadful visit to your wonderful country!

Thanks, my lovely Gangstas! You are all too kind, and that cake looks divine! Not to worry, Nik, the best thing for all of us is to vent and share! I had mommy troubles, too, and I still deal with her in my head nearly 10 years after her death. When I finally found out that my mother was a "narciss...

Re: Generalised Anxiety (GAD) or Excessive Worry

Good to see you getting strong in your recovery, LC! Just take it one day at a time, and keep being kind and generous to yourself! Just wanted to share an observation that I finally realized! Once you have really decided, finally, to quit alcohol for good, your old nemesis, ANXIETY, will begin to wo...

Shadow, pull back from your mother now! Can she control her screaming fits? If she can, and most people can control most overt actions, she is just doing it to push your buttons! She has you in her clutches again, and you do not deserve that! Share with her ways to tamp down anxiety and stress, and...

Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

So true, Cowboy, I would live high up if I could, like in Leadville, where it can be cool even in the summer! At least at night! I can't see the mountains from my apartment, I have to drive West a ways and then I can see their absolute glory, even though I do live in the Mile High City! I wish I li...

Hello! Delicious looking stuff! Ok, still snowing in Colorado! Yes! It snowed yesterday, and the little that stuck to the ground stayed all night and only melted at midday! And then it snowed again today! Fortunately, none of the green stuff froze! I hope not too many got to planting stuff already, ...

Congrats Mandrake! What an accomplishment! Gives us all inspiration to journey on! You are correct, it is so hard to understand at the beginning of an AF life that it will all fall into place one day! That a person can not only live, but live well without alcohol! I still feel hobbled by social anx...

Hello! I recently finished "The Midwife is Here" by Linda Fairly. Were any of you delivered by her? Very interesting, she had quite a career, I love midwife stories and a true one is even better!

Hello Everyone! :\: Good for you LC, let someone take over your health care for now! Let the worry and sadness go for a time! It is absolutely ok to do that, a good thing!
