Re: 100 Day Kickstart

Morning All. It’s not war and peace it’s where you are, who you are and how you feel. Your words are spoken from the experience you have gained over the 8 or so years that you have been working towards the freedom of using alcohol. In AA they say that if you relapse it becomes more difficult to achi...

Re: 100 Day Kickstart

Anyway they are due here today :o Watch this space. I see MH is bowing out for a while, he’s off to Gr...

No golf, hot restorative yoga tonight and workman in so a bit hemmed in (w) I’m really good though. Seems everyone is ok, welcome Chirpy, good to...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Morning everyone So as I near 10 months sober I’ve been reflecting on the past months. When I started my first quest for sobriety back in 2004 aged a mere 43 years old I did purely by white knuckling the whole time. I’ve had long periods of sobriety since then and for sure this time it just feels no...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Morning nicnac I could have written that myself together with 1000’s of others. I too could go quite happily without drinking then for some reason I’d binge and wham another awful situation. Anxiety, depressions, hangovers, upsetting people, falling over the whole lot. It will never change I’ve trie...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Morning I have the same addiction EH, shocking it is..........but you know I love being sober and if the price of that at the moment is in the form of some yummy chocolate so be it. I’m managing to maintain my 13lb weight loss so I’m ok for now. It’s day 295 for me today and still going strong. It’s...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Many congratulations on your 11 months in sobriety. To be free from alcohol is a treasured gift and it’s taken a long time for me to feel truly calm and at peace with the choice I have made. For some this comes much sooner and for others they are still searching as they battle with the cravings and ...

Re: 100 Day Kickstart

I’m a bit late tonight, hope you’ve all had a decent day. MH I’m so pleased you worked your way through these few days. The drivel which gets spoken when people are drunk.....and in some cases when sober too is certainly a good enough reason for us to make sure we don’t go down that route. That said...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Oh damn, I’ve put 3lbs on (w) No point getting worked up about it, will just get back on the old horse and carry on. It’s ok, I guess when you are not too far away from your target it’s tough. Well I know it is. The one thing I have been able to do though is contain the slips and the stone I have lo...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Morning Jj & Wilson Flex those sober muscles Jj, when the going gets tough........working was a trigger for me too. The “reward” after a long hard day. It’s good that it doesn’t even come near your relaxing agenda anymore, a good thing to be very grateful for. You certainly have a very active and in...
