Re: Regrouping

Morning all When I go I love the gym my two favourite classes are spin and body pump and I love weight training too. There's something that I find very satisfying about pushing myself and then have very achy muscles the next day to show for it. Unfortunately, I haven't been for months and can't seem...

Re: Regrouping

Evening All Sleepyb my Dad died 11 years ago and I spiralled out of control too alcohol wise at the time too although I did not really realise that was what caused my downward spiral as it was years until I started to sort it out.

I have had a bereavement so I feel that I am regrouping from that and although I have had long periods of not drinking its just starting to creep in out of my control aga...

Hi All

My Dad died about 11 years ago and the impact of that was bigger than I could ever imagine I'm not really sure I can manage this properly. On another thread I hav...
