Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Morning Everyone :\: Dropping in to say hello and hope everyone is well. Job is going great, learning lots and although I earn less than what I was earning (needed the change), life for me now is more than about that, its more about finding that balance in life, where you don’t pile too much pressur...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Hi Amy <:)> sounds like a lot going on but we make decisions for reasons so go with the flow and you will know if letting your room out is right or wrong. We constantly grow and evolve and no rights or wrongs. Regarding temptation, play the tape forward in your mind and you may find that a sober tim...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Thanks SB <:)> appreciate that brilliant post. It’s truly a strange position to be in, you really never think it will happen. Surprisingly though, I have taken it better than I thought but what is hard to digest, is the fact that this really is it....decision time for grown ups. Had a couple of nost...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Thanks Fuzzy <:)> And good to see you. I was one of the unfortunates who had very painful gallstones at a young age and had mine removed in my twenties. As you say though it could be many things so I’m surprisingly not stressing too much. Funny how we can go for years not respecting our fine tuned m...
