Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Just opening up the door for myself and Action who have passed the 9 month mark today, and heading toward the 1 year milestone. \:)/ It got me thinking about when I last did a stint on BE, so I searched through some old posts from 2013 which made some interesting reading from when I was last at this...

Re: The Nine Month Challenge

All good now though, going to try and actually go to bed over the next week when I am tired, and try and get my shit together in areas of my life I have been ignoring over the past 9 months with the excuse that I have just quit drinking :lol2: In completely the same place. I've been trying to push ...

Re: The Nine Month Challenge

You’re right there Smithster. Weirdly I have had a mare of a couple of days! :shock: Thought about wine, not because I wanted it but because I was so tired and my brain 🧠 was trying to remember what I used to do to cope. I just shouted at it I don’t want wine, I don’t use that! I had a few tears an...

Re: The Nine Month Challenge

Hey Smithster! Just thought I’d mention three more days then we’ll be graduating to the one year milestone challenge. I just popped my head round the door and no one is there… so looks like it’s just me and you. :D <:)> Still here! 3 more days then yes we are off to the next challenge. Seems to hav...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

People come and go on the boards. I would like to believe that for the most part they reach a point where they are well on the sober road and have other tools in their sober toolbox. Other people (like myself for instance) hold on to the belief that after a certain amount of time of abstinence they...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

I have noticed that there does not seem to be much action on the boards these days but I am getting rather desperate and I need all the help I can get. We have all heard it said that relapses are much easier than staying the course. I know I shouldn't and I don't really deserve it but I am asking a...

Re: The Nine Month Challenge

Hi Smithster, Cowboy, Rose and anyone lurking on the sidelines :D Had a funny day yesterday. Travelled to London for hospital appointment. I always find hospital appointments really challenging; the travelling, anxiety with health, etc. I used to pour a glass of wine before I’d even taken my shoes ...

Re: The Nine Month Challenge

Hi Smithster. Really good to see you doing so well athletically. It is amazing how your body responds to the kindness of removing alcohol. Way to go. I hope my old posse are all doing well wherever you all are on your journey. Life is good. Cowboy. Thanks Cowboy. Alcohol does indeed mess your body ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Was it something I said ? Geez it's quiet in here these days. Guess that's a good thing. Day 3. What a great nights sleep and feeling great this morning. I'll take it as a good thing. Come over to the 9 month thread, the silence in there is positively deafening :lol2: Come over and say hello. ;)?
