Re: Two Week Challenge

Hi linda,

I love these challenges as i think it helps knowing people are kinda in a similar place as you, if you see what i mean. last time i came on here the threads were so quiet and i felt the same as you, like i needed some company!

I will definitley make it to day 10, i really want too!

Re: Help for Someone Else

Hi Maria, We are going to have a look tonight on here, I am unsure on what her goals are at the moment and I think tonight we can see a bit more. She has logged in using my account just to read a few posts but she says she doesn't stay long. i think it is really her facing up to her problem and as w...

Re: Help for Someone Else

Thank you misana and maria for your replies. We were talking last night and she agreed to have a look round this site while I was on the phone, I said she can set up a little account just to look. She said she knows she has a problem. She is in a relationship with a woman and they are waiting to mov...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi 7 Dayers, I am back on day 4 again. I haven't been on here for a few months now. I had been sober for 4 months until I caved in in may. I can really relate to freedom1. the will for giving up disapears and then i drink socially for a while until it starts taking over again. I know i am a clasic b...

Re: family history - does drinking run in your family?

Hi Kelbo, So sorry to hear of you experiences, some of them are very similar to mine. But it is great that you are here and trying to lead a better life for yourself and your future children. My mum was also an alcoholic and once she left my dad for a man she met at AA things went pretty downhill fr...

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

Hi Phm, My oh is very important to me, my sanity is very important to me. My life has been very calm since I havent been drinking. The only time I think i feel tempted now is when I meet up with the girls. Its not that we have to have a drink to have a good time as they are not big drinkers but it's...

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

Hi bela and space chimp, Thank you for your replies, I do feel like I am in a bit of a bad place at the moment. Just 10 mins ago I was thinking when I go to the concert at the end of june having a drink that day won't hurt. God what is wrong with me? I have never drank every day and I dont think i e...

Re: The Six Month Challenge

Thanks for the comments,

I have decided not to go this weekend, I think it's for the best. I have not seen becks blue before. I tend not to even walk down the isles where they sell drink anymore.

I have decided to go for dinner with my OH which should be a lot more rewarding. How is everyone today?

Re: The Six Month Challenge

Thanks guys, it's good to know that we have a listening ear and support on here. I do feel confident but it is just so annoying to even have these struggles in the first place!

Re: The Six Month Challenge

As for the challenge, I think I am up to the 6 month challenge. I can do it and this is now my goal after my slip on Sunday. I have updated my drink date to remind me and to keep my goal in sight. I think i have learned from this also. The thing that is annoying me the most is that I had a good time...
