Re: NOTICE BOARD

Ada - Take care of yourself. I also have logged on to say the same thing. This site helped me no end to give up the booze. It was there (BE) at my highest and at my very lowest. I can remember sitting for hours on end just reading (while drinking) and reading and more of (both) Guys here helped me g...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (NO GENERAL CHAT PLEASE)

Getoutitsmylife <:)> You were there once - remember- your nephew is living it like you did. For you it got out of control. Used up all your cards marked choice. We were all given them. All played them all at once. We all saw it coming and chose to ignore it. Don't worry bout him, hard, aint it, been...

Re: Not Drinking' for Lent?

Ermm....... Yep whatever. I don't find it touching. My friends look at me and say 'what the fu*k happened there?' Is she still there or what? Touching it may be but it aint real life.

Hmmmm....... Let me see. . . . . <:)>

skm1664 <:)> Hey babes listen. It aint all bad!! Trust me. Kids love you. No matter what they love you. You might've buggered it up. But they are just so forgiving. They love you. I talk to my youngest lads and all they wanted was to be held and kissed. Loved. Not sure why? But that's all the little...

Re: NEW MEMBERS - PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE

Hi Mike Just read your post and wanted to say hello and all that <:)> Re-reading posts is a great idea. When I joined BE I knew I had 'a problem' but it escalated and resulted in my posts being grim and dark and low. If it wasn't for this forum I don't know where I'd have turned. I re-read them now ...

Re: Not Drinking' for Lent?

Paquin <:)> Thanks for your comments re: my post earlier. You were the only one to respond in any way :D I'm glad it stirred something in you. You are 100 % correct in your response and maybe I could've been a bit harsh in my judgement of the giving up for lent thingy. The tradition part I overlooke...

Re: Not Drinking' for Lent?

WHAT????? Not drinking for lent?? Is this just not another reason for not drinking? Lent, then easter, then summer, then Harvest, then Christmas, then new year???? Birthdays and celebrations inbetween. How about I'm trying not to drink for as long as I can. Then there is no end to that. Ok it's the ...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (NO GENERAL CHAT PLEASE)

Just to put this in context. <:)> I wouldn't have thrown away my last bottle of vodka without at least 8 members of the public and 4 pairs of pliers to take me on. That's not a joke either! I was talking to a BE member when 'they' tried and they could verify this!! My fingers couldn't hold onto a pa...

Dave Things Catch Up. They did with me. Lied my arse off. Was believed. Then suddenly, I wasn't the moon and the sun anymore.

Re: NEW MEMBERS - PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF HERE

Hi Jilly/Saran I can only reiterate what Mike has said. A label is something that attatches itself to a belief that we are what we are or it is what it is. We are all so much more than that. We are not just alcoholics, dependant, addicts. We are human beings, that for a while, no matter how long, be...

Hi Step One/Dave I've just read your post and it hit something in me. Are you at work today, or day off? Or a sickie? I've been there. We together, have been there. Are you ok?
