Re: Please post here if you are planning to drink.

Hi Jos, that's so funny you should say that because that was how i was feeling on the weekend. What scared me though was the quantity i drank, but i have picked myself up (again) and got over the guilt and self loathing - which is much worse than the hangover, and last drink was saturday night. anyw...

Re: What happens if I try to have "just one?"

Hi HH and Jaycee, well i am certainly not one to give advice - but from the bottom of my heart don't be weak like me, it's not worth it and to be honest, after sobriety it doesn't taste the same at all. It's not relief. It just feels like swallowing guilt and self loathing in liquid form. Believe me...

Yes Julie, You are so right. And I guess I'm thankful that there are ones like you here who can detach and know what to do in those situations like the one i mentioned. I'm often envious of you and your knowledge! What you said is right - most of us just don't post when we are feeling down - even th...

Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON FORUM

Do you think maybe 'admin' gets in touch if someone has dropped out of sight? Or is it up to us? But we don't have each other's emails, do we? Maybe that's something we could suggest to the BE people - e.g. if we suspect someone might be in trouble or something could we let them know? I'm still so w...
