Re: The First 7 Days

day 3 done, side effect of new meds means i'm sleeping 18 hours a day so i feel a bit like i'm cheating. good really 'cause usual side effect of stopping drinking is being unable to sleep. hope you all are okay. sorry for short posts, problems concentrating.

good idea pjgirl... on a related matter i've often thought a place for real time chat ( typing) would be good on here especially for people who may be posting on the SOS thread and need to talk urgently.
