Re: Alcohol and Sugar Imbalance

Hi Mikey, I will look forward to your findings. Very interesting about fatty livers and sudden death. Good to have you back Bupster, I have missed your posts and the sanity you bring to the forum <:)> I agree with you about the GI diet. The Atkins is a very unhealthy approach to weight loss. I tried...

Re: I can't stop.

I think relapses are extremely important.I think they have enabled me to look at what my triggers for drinking are and formulate plans regarding prevention of further relapses. They have actually served a very valuable purpose for me. Relapses to me, have been necessary for learning that I cannot ev...

Re: A Series of Misfortunate Events - the cooking thread

:lol: I love squirrels! There is a spot in Regents park, that I go to and there are around ten or so there in a little hidden spot. I take them monkey nuts whenever I can, surprisingly, there is even a red squirrel. They are not vermin, they are fluffy little angels

Re: Do you want to say "I haven't had a drink today" ?

Hi HH, thanks for posting. I didnt consider that it was actually a good thing to be in a foul mood and not actually picking up a drink. Thankyou for helping me see the up side of it <:)> You are a wise lady HH, you should consider becoming an alcohol counsellor yourself, you would whip us pissheads ...

I am feeling decidedly grumpy today after a useless appt with my alcohol counsellor and an ex boyfriend who likes to let me down repeatedly and a mother who only seems to care for herself. Its not the end of the wor...
