Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Morning Roadies, I have not been around these parts for sometime and it’s nice to see the familiar faces and some new ones. As I move towards 18 months sober life today is ok. It’s had its ups and downs, a fairly traumatic start to the year but my sobriety was never threatened. My periods of good sp...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Morning Lushie and everyone else on board. Gorgeous photograph Kim, hope you are keeping well. I still hop on here regularly as well just to see what is going on. 17 months sober yesterday and feeling grand. I guess like some a tad apprehensive as life gets back to normality but to be honest I was 6...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

I found it a bit tough but for me it’s about the laughs and even more so the skiing itself.......not to mention the food. I was grateful one person didn’t drink it really helped because at least I...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

I resonate with so much which has been said here. Sue like you I kept caving in as you know after decent lengths of sobriety. It’s almost like not all the pieces of the jigsaw were there. Going back to Angelica, you know this is a journey and it’s one day at a time. As you have been here before it r...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Passing through. Not able to sleep, hence the time. Good to see all you lovely people going strong. I’ve been challenged this past month or so. Let’s just say we’ve been going through a very low period, but not to dwell on it my sobriety is completely solid and I’ve never once thought about picking ...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Hi roadies, I’ve not been round for sometime. I’m remain very strong in my sobriety however the road has been a testing one. If I’m honest alcohol has not featured in my conscious or subconscious mind and so I am so grateful that in the middle of an extremely turbulent time for me I’ve not had to ba...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

I was very spoilt and indulged with some beautiful gifts and we were lucky enough to go out for a meal too. So all in all a really good day and given the cu...

I think when you get through difficult times you become stronger and I feel that today. I am fitter, healt...
