Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Congrats SB on 3 years. That's fantastic to hear about your improved mental health. I've found my own is certainly improving in year two. You may remember me and my partner are expecting a baby, well we went for a scan today and it seems I've underestimated and there are in fact two on the way! Im ...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi Chirpy Welcome back to BE. Like you, I’ve just returned from a period of not being on the forum. I’m trying for a sustained period of abstinence, so you’re in the right place with like minded people with similar goals. 10 years abstinence is really amazing, so you know you can do it. Take it a da...

There’s loads of preparations to do before the children return in a couple of weeks. I’m glad to be going back to work, and getting back into some kind of routine, but neverless ...

Re: COVID-19 Support & Chat

Does anybody else think the government are lifting restrictions a bit too much rather than in small steps? I work in childcare, and to be quite honest I’m horrified that they’re allowing the children back so soon. How the government expect little ones to social distance. I’m genuinely concerned that...

Re: Regrouping

Morning everyone! :\: So today I’m making a fresh start. I’m back at work on Monday, having been furloughed for the past 7 weeks. Although I’ve not been drinking everyday - probably 3 times a week - I’ve still been drinking more than is healthy, and have felt the effects of drinking the following da...

Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON THE FORUM

Hi Mark :\:

Great to see you to. I’m busy reading posts currently rather than posting, but I’m sure I’ll start posting more soon. I’m back at work on Monday after being furloughed for the past 7 weeks, so I know that will help me get back in-line with not drinking. Hope you are well Mark.

Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON THE FORUM

Hi Sheila and Topcat, great to see you both again. Yeah I did suggest that to my husband and he does want to give it a try, but stress triggers him to smoke more which with the current situation he’s finding it difficult. I can support him though, and I will of course. ;)?

Hi everyone! :\: Gosh it’s been a while since I was here, but thought I’d pop by for a little support and hopefully support others while I’m here.
