Re: Three Week Challenge

Evening three weekers. Well done to George, Frank for getting to the next milestone.

Lima you won't be far behind by the sounds of it. You'll have to let me know what your Garmin is like *drool

Re: Three Week Challenge

Hi 3 weekers Glad to see there are still a few peeps round here and still going great guns! Lima, I'm a cyclist too. Spending on the bikes is my achilles heel - I'm terrible for gadgets! I can't ride due to ill health at the moment and I miss it. Just before I got ill I was downhilling in Scotland! ...

Re: Three Week Challenge

That sounds like you had a good night frank. Keep at it, the positives are what's needed to build that alcohol free life. I'm on day 15 so just stepping on here to start the 3 week journey. Having a lot of stress/anxiety issues at the moment related to trying to return to work - I am dealing with po...

Re: Two Week Challenge

Martin, I'm a keen cyclist too. Keeping fit certainly helps counteract some of the booze damage I reckon, but even better on the bike if we're AF of course. I'm actually on day 14 now. Time flown past....stressful week returning to work on phased return and getting pressure from them to increase my ...

Re: Two Week Challenge

Well done George! Using tapatalk, finally got it set up and working so it's easier to post from my phone! Had a mare getting it to work on android though.

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi 7 dayers,

Just wanted to say keep going. It's tough, really tough those first few days. It's worth gritting your teeth and seeing it out though.

Re: The First 7 Days

<:)> for everyone with the Friday wobbles. I had my back to work meeting today and am going to start my phased return on Monday. I am a bit nervous about it - although my boss is being very nice my colleagues made sure I knew they had been super busy being a member of staff down. One of them is very...

Re: The First 7 Days

Day #3 now I have to tell myself that it is better to EAT than to DRINK. That bit doesn't last forever. You will get over the "Eat All the Food" stage, promise! Just do what you have to do to get through it for the short term. And longer term, you will look much healthier without the booze even if ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Michelle my OH was like that at first, didn't really want me not drinking. Until he actually saw the difference, once I'd done a few AF weeks and my health improved etc, and then he got "un-used" to me drinking. Then when he saw me drinking again I think he realised what drunk me was really like - n...

Re: The First 7 Days

FR and D75 that's what you got to do keep getting up and trying again. If we don't keep doing that, then we admit it owns us. SG keeping busy is a good way to handle things as then you can't think about it too much. I've got up and made myself a juice this morning - apple, celery, cucumber and straw...

Re: The First 7 Days

I'm glad to see how many folks are around here supporting each other. As Finley said this is one of the best places to be on the board when you're trying to do the first few days. I've booked myself into Pilates tomorrow morning. Hopefully I'll have the energy for a dip in the pool and go to the sau...

Re: The First 7 Days

I'd nearly done 4 weeks due to an illness but then caved in when out with a friend yesterday. Due to my health problems and also mental health issues alcohol just does not go well with me. Yesterday I had 2 bottles of wine with my friend, so I probably drank about a bottle, which doesn't sound much ...

Re: The Two Month Challenge

wow, amazing that we have such talented folk on here! Many musical folks, I have taken up playing piano/keys again but it's much more difficult these days. My mum told me I was never that good anyway, (though I did get to grade 8) so that seems to have put a mental block on me playing. The way I was...

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Welcome Mooths \:)/ Gosh I don't know what I'd do if I had to give up coffee, am barely functional in the mornings without one at least, and even being sober hasn't changed that - don't think I'll ever be a morning person. :oops: I hope you manage to cope with it. I do find being well hydrated at le...

Re: The Two Month Challenge

Hi two monthers. Pleased to see some new faces, well dome on making it here (::) I'm still hanging in there bar one slip earlier in the week, was coerced a bit by my friend, and gave in but was very sick within a short space of time, despite it not being a great amount of booze. Something in my body...
