Re: Regrouping

Welcome Scarletb You're in good company. I'm not beating myself up about the unhealthy calories, food distraction helps to push me through early stages but in time, the loss of "empty" alcohol calories kicks in and things balance out. Impressed by all the fitness activity - joining a gym this weeken...

Re: The First 7 Days

Sammie, Leslans I've been coming and going for years too, now have a real sense that I'm running out of time to faff about. Drinking is just not a rational thing to do - after a long spell off the wagon I forget what it's like to feel AF and great, so I've climbed back on and will be hanging in ther...

Re: Regrouping

Hi all Still here and still regrouping. Eating way too much chocolate in the process. Ah well, it will be mince pies soon :lol: Nice to hang out here gently, where the focus isn't just on counting the days - good to be around more general chat and how are you too. Bloomin' horrible weather here, col...

Re: The First 7 Days

Way to go Leslans! Like you, fed up with going round in circles - been fed up so many times before. We're in great company to start moving this juggernaut forward :) Will help to have family on the case, Feeling a bit tired and tingly-tongued today, but otherwise ok. Challenging my thinking at every...

Re: Regrouping

Hi tad I've come to realise that returning home from things is a trigger - I rarely get craving when out or socialising and I too have had those awful days. Really focusing on that. Bright and sunny here and thinking positive about the weekend - feel run down as body recovers but feeling good about ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Day 2 dawns and feeling motivated. Nice to see you JohnnyB - we were in similar/same threads in September - will look for you this week. Ah Maria, getting anywhere near 100 days is awesome. You are good at regrouping and having serious dry spells so you'll be back on track in no time ;)? Stay with i...

Re: Regrouping

Sleepyb Thanks for words of support. Feeling ok this evening, just a bit chastened. I think sometimes when the head starts to calm down you just notice the drain on your body a bit more. Takes a while to put back in all that the alcohol has taken out. Take it easy and take whatever boosts you system...

Re: Regrouping

Truestate Good news about your Union - I had a boss on a similar mission a few years ago and the support was brilliant, turned the situation around. Struggling a bit here, slipped on Day 2 so in 7 days for a while longer. It's taking me longer than it used to to regain focus and get a clear stretch ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Ah, back to day 1 for me.

Gutted to have wobbled so soon but don't want to be left on the naughty step while everyone moves on. Staying with it.

Re: Regrouping

Glad you've joined us TrueState,

Sounds as if a place to find welcome and support with so much going on for you, is just what you need. I'm glad to have stepped into this thread whilst starting another 7 days. Good vibe on here.

Take care everyone,

Re: Regrouping

I go through phases when I can’t face posting another day one on there but then decide I’ll give it another go. Thanks Sleepyb, I kick myself whenever I get to day 1 of 7, square 1 - but it's good that there is always like-minded company. If I avoid it, I'm generally in trouble. Let's do this... Sxx

Re: The First 7 Days

Morning all I'm back again, was doing ok after my last stretch here but had a tricky October due to a significant birthday. Back to a place where I feel annoyed and ashamed (and not healthy). This thread never fails to pull me through the first steps to a better place, good luck all. Need good compa...

Re: Regrouping

Morning all I'm in regrouping mode, have slipped and slid to the place where I feel annoyed and ashamed that's I've been drinking too much. Was regaining control from September, hasn't lasted, a lot of birthday stuff last month didn't help. So will dip in with other regroupers, off to 7 day thread o...
