Apologies if not posting in the correct place..

Last week I did a 1/2 marathon and was happy with myself, but since half fu**ed up big style & drank the whole week. Why do we do this??

Re: The First 7 Days

It's just that 1st day for me. Always find it so difficult. Was full of positivity about stopping again on Saturday and went to do some work on the laptop and hands were shaking so much, was going to take me twice as long..........so, just have a couple to sort that out.......and then the rest. When...

Re: Are you drinking now ?

No idea if this helps anyone, but just joined and posted on the introduction feed. Up early watched GOT.....with a couple of Bloody Mary's :twisted: ...BUT, have since had something to eat, cranked up the music and got some cleaning done.

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi Winklar,

It's definitely a problem!

Think my Husband is probably more in denial than me, as he doesn't want an alcoholic wife and all the implications of that. Watching London Marathon & thinking, should really be doing that as opposed to drinking vodka! x

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Genetics maybe. 2 x Alcoholic Grandparents on different sides. Always felt a little bit doomed! 100 days seems a bit daunting for me just now. When my Husband is here, it's all good, but we do drink sociably quite a lot. If I was to stop completely, that would have an affect on him, which I would fe...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

(Drinking alone, far too early etc.) Have a lovely life, so no excuses. Can also stop for 1-3 weeks, lead a much happier lif...
