Re: The First 7 Days

Avocado, I'm sorry you had such an awful day and horrible experience. Onwards - and keep posting. Remember there's the SOS thread if you ever feel like that again. Could be worth a try? <:)>

I couldn’t climb back down from that feeling and ended up resorting to the default coping method ...wine. How on earth do ...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

I've been watching Eastenders and the Linda story. It's quite grim, isn't it? I wasn't sure how realistic it comes across as it seems that she's become an alcoholic/problem drinker relatively quickly? I mean, shes been running the pub for years (I think?) - wouldn't problems have been creeping up an...

Re: The Next 2 - 4 Weeks

Don't do it, Swordie. It so wouldn't be worth it. I was wobbly all over the weekend, but I can't tell you the relief I felt this morning not starting the week hungover and drained and not at full capacity. I've had a productive day, which would not have been possible had I had "a drink" (ha, when is...

Re: The Next 2 - 4 Weeks

Avocado, you have done SO WELL!! Don't let this blip set you back. The worst thing you could do is drink again today and put off your next stint of sobriety. Just keep going!
