Re: Insomnia/Sleeplessness

If you're ok with taking medicinal help but don't want the stuff only available through the GP, PHENERGAN works really well. It's sold OTC at most pharmacies and is found next to the Nytol / Sominex (neither of which work for me...). 20yrs ago Phenergan was used by parents to dose their small childr...

Re: 100 Day Kickstart

39/100 and really struggling this weekend. Not really craving booze, but just totally fed up. Bored with the "sameness" of every day. Wake up early, do the same things EVERY day, seven days a week, go to bed early and repeat. The thought of this continuing for the next 30 odd years is thoroughly dep...

Re: The Arts Centre

Come on now Condor, that's just shameless fibbing. Show us the shop label - there's no WAY that jumper is home-made... :shock:

Re: The Two and Three Month Challenge

Maria - I am also getting fat! Not sure how the others do it, losing half their bodyweight during early recovery, because I've become an eating MACHINE :roll:

Hey Ho. I'll tackle the weight a bit further down the line...

The brand new Stephen King novel (The Institution) has been delivered to my Kindle overnight and I badly want to remember the plot and remember reading it when I've finished it ()o

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

I visit the one day thread sometimes, and I always respond to new members on that thread. It's a win-win; it's supportive of others (I hope!) and reminds me of how far I have come and how quickly I could be right back there. SoberBoots, you welcomed me and provided INVALUABLE PRACTICAL advice about...

Condor - I've re-written this several times but all my responses sound so trite and small. I can only marvel at your bravery and spirit and be really, really, really, REALLY glad that you found this place and the strength to Recover and share your stuff with the numerous kindred souls around here.

Re: successful cutting down?

If you met me you’d never believe the problems I’ve had and most people who know me are not aware. That’s the beauty of this forum, honestly, soul searching and off loading. Ain't THAT the truth Condor. I've done WAAAYYYY too much Off-Loading and Over-Sharing this morning on various threads and hav...

Re: Sober September

Condor and Soberboots, I have two Degrees I was a Midwife for ten years. Prior to that I was a Chef/owner of my own Pub/Restaurants for twelve years. Just before that I had two children who I largely ignored for the first part of their lives, due to living and working in a "fabulous" adult environme...

Re: 100 Day Kickstart

Reading some of the articles about Sean Hughes recently(Irish comedian recently died due to cirrhosis) made me shiver. At 45 he was saying he’d been lucky with his health despite being hedonistic -then his health went into a downward spiral and 5 years later he was dead. Jayjay, I was watching all ...

Re: Just want to share.

31/100 for the last two nights I’ve been in bed by 9 as I can’t trust myself to not reach out and take a slug of my husbands wine. Boxer, I keep saying this but I have the utmost respect for anyone with the strength and courage to walk the Sobriety path whilst living with someone still drinking and ...

I'm on a roll and it feels awesome. Leslans - has that Border Terrier always been your avatar? Can't believe I never noticed it... I had a gorgeous Border until 2017. She was called Mouse and she was the cleverest, funniest and most manipulatively devious fur-baby I've ever lived with - and I've bee...
