Re: Regrouping

Afternoon. Well I’ve had a productive day. I had a zoom interview and got offered job, support worker, giving relatives who are full time carers a break by looking after the cares for person. I’ve applied for a few more that I’ve not heard back from yet so still keeping my options open but v happy I...

Re: Regrouping

Yep lockdown in crap weather and dark nights is different to lockdown in summer Mr T. Dog walks and road running are keeping me sane though still struggling with fatigue which I am guessing is a leftover from having Covid the other week. Every day is just blurring into one. BUT I remain sober for no...

Re: Regrouping

Morning! Just saying hello, Mr T you sound lies you’ve cracked this drinking malarkey, bloody well done!!! This is my fifth week of no drink so hoping I may be making some progress too but we’ll see as I know what I’m like. I do think giving up my job has made quite a difference, I think maybe I und...

Re: Regrouping

Morning all. I second (or third?) what seren and bizzy say, you are a beautiful soul deb. Bizzy, will be so much easier to do a dry jan if your mates are doing it. Don’t think any of mine are interested in giving up the booze anytime soon so it’s probably a blessing I can’t see them for now. This mo...

Re: Regrouping

Morning and happy new year groupies? What did everyone do or is that a stupid question at the mo as we actually can’t do anything anyway. I was asleep before midnight, so bloody tired with this shitty virus but other than that and achey and mucusy (sorry TMI) I’m not too bad so far so grateful for t...

Re: Regrouping

Morning, hi deb <:)> Well I have the dreaded virus, daughters and I had test test at 9.30am and got positive result texted to us about 9.30 last night, can’t fault the local test site efficiency to be fair.

Re: Regrouping

Oh and LBNS, the three spirit. I really enjoyed the taste, quite herby. I did it like a pornstar martini with passion fruit and a bit of nosecco, it was nice. I think it gave me a mild ‘buzz’ but nothing amazing and nowhere near a feeling of being drunk or tipsy and I had no urge to drink alcohol. I...

Re: Regrouping

Morning tad and seren. Good to ‘see’ you tad and that things are going well though you sound a bit anxious, maybe just go with the flow and try not to over think things. Something I’m very much guilty of doing all the time. Nearly 3 weeks AF here but as usual one day at a time and don’t get complace...

Re: Regrouping

Just popped in to say merry Xmas lovely groupies. Sober and hangover free today thank god. I have bought some of this Three Spirit drink which is made of plants and supposed to give you a bit of a natural high, whether that’s a good idea or whether it actually works remains to be seen but hey ho, I’...

Re: Regrouping

Hello Mr T, have a good one yourself! All ok here other than daughters boyfriend has tested positive for the dreaded lurch and he’s been staying with her before the tier 4 came in 😳 so looks like at the very least she’s going to have to stay in her room over Xmas and not mingle with us unless of cou...

Re: Regrouping

Hello Xmas groupies. Well my region is now tier 4 and I’m still at mums which I believe is still tier 2. Hoping I dint get stopped on the way home tomorrow but I’ll say mum is in my bubble and she’s isolated and vulnerable and I was making sure she was stocked up for Xmas, which isn’t strictly true ...

Morning all. Our Xmas tree has been up since end of November seren 😂 Still plodding along here. No urges to drink at all which I’m grateful for but taking it day by day. I’ve been feeling quite calm and content past couple of days so I don’t know if that’s the new anti depressant though I don’t thin...

Re: Regrouping

Evening all. Things se to be settling down somewhat, I hope! First gym sesh for about 3 weeks and wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. Thought I might keel over with the exertion. Now to do a CV as long term plan is to go back to social work if/when I’m confident my health is stable and drinking ...
