Re: 100 Day Kickstart

76/100 or 153 minus 6. 76 days is amazing but I definitely feel the strength of 147 days if that makes sense. I quit 24th August but slipped and had 6 days drinking intermittently before I made my decision to stop again 10th November. I feel positive and strong. The socialising is getting easier and...

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Thanks Lynn, will do. Well done Exiled on getting through those days away on business. I remember well back in the day how boozy trips like that could be. Ridiculous really that we feel the need to drink copious amounts just because we are away on business. I was out at a do last night. Had a good n...

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Right with you Lynn Day 75. Off skiing again this weekend for a week with a group of friends. Very excited and my bag is full of chocolate snacks. I’ve also been in touch with the chalet owner and asked them to provide alternative soft drinks for the evening as I don’t drink so there will be no wine...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Yes Ed, if only we could feel those awful feelings for real when times get tough, because if we could we wouldn’t pick up that drink. Those absolutely desperate feelings of self loathing and hatred towards alcohol. The desire to be abstinent and free of from the clutches of alcohol at those times is...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Just been reading with interest some of the posts on here in relation to how you are feeling Fiz. As many of you know I relapsed around the 2 year mark and previously 12 months. I think we can place too much emphasis on milestones which inevitably lead to an anticlimax once we reach them. I remember...

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Day 73. Fabulous post and so very honest Lynn. Sometimes I think we need to share on here to remind ourselves just how far we have come. We all know and acknowledge our drinking is problematical, however our subconscious mind can switch us back on to it once the fear, embarrassment and self loathing...

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Morning, Good to be here doing this. I’ve never been a strong supporter of AA, but I will admit being in a group does give strength to the cause. I believe some of it to be somewhat dated and certainly within the rooms the message can be extremely overwhelming. I mean a lot of us on here are what I ...

Re: General Support and Chat

Hi peeps, gosh this sticking thing it’s just so true. It may not stick forever but there’s longer stints, a bit more confidence in our ability to do it and more times when we enjoy ourselves without it than with it. There’s no magic wand as far as I am concerned. I use everything under the sun to he...

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Hey day 70 here in foggy Cheshire. We have fields at the back and front of our house and I can see absolutely nothing 🤣🤣. It’s a good day though. I’m glad to see we are all doing ok, Exiled, Cherry, Lynn and Maria. You know when we have a night where we struggle it feels good to wake up being hangov...

Re: The First 7 Days

Good stuff Sue. It’s this fear of “missing out” or believing we can’t have a good time without it. Looking at it though depriving ourselves from life itself and just white knuckling it isn’t sustainable.........god only knows I’ve done it so many times. I guess it all depends where you are with your...
