Re: NOTICE BOARD

Is this a private party or can anyone join in?
It seems so much nicer and brighter on here nowadays. I can't think why?

Re: NOTICE BOARD

I was so angry earlier. I went away for an hour - a long drive - to think about all this. I don't care about your in-fighting; you can apologise to each other as much as you like. That is not my concern. My concern at the moment is for Glenn and what this is doing to him. It is not emotional blackma...

Becs
After the shameless way he has been treated on here today I think you will find he is more likely to be found in Accident and Emergency than sitting behind his computer screen laughing at us..

Re: NOTICE BOARD

I can see both sides of the argument and would like to suggest a compromise. There will always be contentious issues - it's not just Glenn. These things will always crop up. Can I suggest a new thread? Glenn will promise to post ONLY on this thread, nowhere else on the Forum, and those who object to...

Re: NOTICE BOARD

Mike, it takes one to know one. Glenn came onto this site in a bad way, but full of hope and enthusiasm. He bouced almost immediately into a few days of sobriety. He started to turn his life around and Bright Eye was GOOD for him. Look what we have done to him. He is now a wreck - sometimes afraid t...

Re: NEW MEMBERS - PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE

Hi Tawny, I feel for you. I really do - and I know exactly how you feel. I could say 'been there, bought the T-shirt" but I won't. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Make a note in your diary because it is quite momentous - and then come and join us on the November Hop. The november ho...

Hi Notorious,
What happened mate? You were doing so well - so this must have been a major trigger. Anything we can help with? Make yourself a cup of tea and a bit of toast and come and talk to us for a while. We are all here for you.

Re: The November Nippy Hippy Hop

Thanks Darcy, Delegation? I live with three boys, three World of Warcraft addicts. There's not a chance I can get them to do anything. When I came out of hospital after a week's interment, the house was foul. Coke cans and take-away containers from one end of the house to the other. Empty fridge and...

Re: Social Drinking - or, 'Cutting down'

Hi Glenn,
Nice to see you again. I've saved a seat for you on the wagon. We are at the back with Fiendy and Anna and our job is to keep them safe. Are you going to join us?

Re: The November Nippy Hippy Hop

Hello Chums, Thank for your gentle hugs and concern about my back. You are all just too lovely! I don't know how long it will take to heal but I do know that slapping two rugby boots together was a stupid thing to do. I shan't be doing that again in a hurry. Husband dearest is getting very bored wit...

Re: The November Nippy Hippy Hop

Hello Annakins I think that is a perfect goal for you. Make non-drinking your default mode. If I can do it you can! I shall be here to prop you up. Ok girl? I'm having a robotic day today, walking like a robot and in pain. I took my sons rugby boots outside this morning and whacked them together to ...

Re: How childhood shapes us

Hello Everyone, I am a bit afraid of this thread. Not in a bad way - I just think it is probably going to get big and deep and heavy. This is a good thing though. We all need to face our demons, the reasons why we drink. It isn't for the taste or the buzz. For some of us its because deep down, we do...

Re: The November Nippy Hippy Hop

Hi Glenn,
I'm far too old for bedroom shenannigans, she said, thankfully! I am afraid I am just going to go to bed now with my hot water bottle and a good book. Yawn. I'm so dull!
Sleep well mate and see you in the morning.
Love Auntie

Hi Glenn Methinks that your normally articulate typing has gone on a little bender? Screw the lid back on that whiskey bottle Glenn and tuck yourself up in bed! See you in the morning - when you will be just that little bit closer to being an outstanding shining lighthouse of LUUURVE. The mind boggl...

Re: I can't stop.

Hi Liz, It's hard for me to see you so sad. When you are drinking you become so blue - and when you are sober you really come ALIVE and all the GOOD STUFF comes your way! I have watched you go from one extreme to the other and you are so much happier when you are not drinking. Please give it another...

Re: The Joke Page

One day a nun was standing on the side of the road waiting for a cab. A cab stopped and picked her up. During the ride she noticed that the driver was staring hard at her. When she asked him why, he said, “I want to ask you something, but I don’t want to offend you.” She said, “You can’t o...

Re: Social Drinking - or, 'Cutting down'

Annakins,
That wasn't a polite request for you to come back. It was an ORDER! Now just do as you are told for once!
Love you XXX
