Re: The First 7 Days

Having a bad start to the day but here is day 2.

I am full time carer for husband and for the last 4 weeks rehab for daughter! Overload. Too much.

Have got to try to put myself first at least some of the time. Good luck to all. Sammie, yes that is so true. I seek oblivion.

Hugs Bev x

Re: The First 7 Days

Hello all
Well my crisis seems to be over. Daughter is getting herself sorted out and is on the road to recovery. So here I am day 1 (again). Feeling good (as in positive), the house is quiet.

Let battle commence. Hope we all have a good day. \:)/

Day 8 sounds good. Have had a bad time here with the daughter. Drink, drugs, you name it. Husband in remission from cancer though thank God. I am not feeling strong myself but will try to follow your good example!!

Big hugs and good thoughts to all.

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi all
I am joining 7 days as a relapsed boozer of Chardonnay (once the love of my life). I was on here for quite a while, maybe 2 or 3 years, I forget. I did well eventually but have had a lapse so here I am.

Jeez, I don't even like the taste of it now!!

Good luck to all. \:)/

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

I have been here before so really I should know better but the draw of the vino is proving really strong right now so I have come back for some inspiration. I hope I can give some too when I have got over this latest struggle!
I am gritting my teeth hard. ;)?

Soberfun I too am on the 7 day challenge and this is day 1. Would like to clock up the week and then think again. What worries me is when I am fe...

Sandy In my rush forgot to say you MUST have proper oat bran and the 1 1/2 tabs a day. I thought I could get away with just raw oats (which I love) but was told that it MUST be the proper thing or you will get severley bunged up like I did. Dukan are really adamant about it.
