Re: The Spirituality Connection

Ah. I am a simple soul really - one who utterly believes in God and in Jesus as our saviour. However, I am not so good at subscribed doctrine - I simply cannot get my head around anybody who thinks that God loves us all in different degrees. We are ALL his children, simply that. I think calling anyb...

Re: what's a relapse?

Zoe, what a brilliant post! I feel the same. I often get the niggling "of course you will one day" thoughts - and the drinking dreams. Sometimes I sit with people who are having a drink and, out of the blue, I'll get the "go on that red wine looks so good, one won't hurt" thoughts. However, I need t...

Re: Depression, Bipolar and Other Personality Issues.

It is a bugger, isn't it, depression? I used to drink and drink and drink on it, but that just made it 1000 times worse. One year and counting into sobriety and I still have the depression. Have gone down from 60mg to 40mg of Citalopram, but seem to be about balanced at this level. Part of my coping...

Re: Are you drinking now ?

Nic you stay strong angel - you are doing the right thing. I know it is hard, but try to focus on having a good time without alcohol. Remember, it is really our enemy and loves trying to spoil our good times. It makes us feel depressed and unhappy, but tells us it is the only solution. Believe me it...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Morning all - another non-blipper here. Although too was a SERIAL blipper for a long time. I know even a little blip would send me back down the awful path of chaos and hell that were my drinking days. I am very lucky that something inside me said "STOP MICHELLE" - I don't know what the magic ingred...

Re: Are you drinking now ?

Hi Nic - isolating is a very bad idea. I used to hate seeing people as I had it in my head that I would have my drinking supply cut off. I will be on here most of the day, so if you need a chat I am here xxxxx

Re: BE Meeting/Day Trips - Ideas Welcome

Only as far as Surrey I am afraid Chris... I am looking forward so much to meeting everybody. My son - who has been my rock in the past year - is off to uni the week before the trip, so I shall need a smile putting back on my face <:)>

I can't ever imagine a time when I wanted to die so badly - I would never consider leaving him now. He is starting university soon and my main focus for the next three years is to work hard s...

Re: Are you drinking now ?

Franki - I used to do the exact same thing. Tuck into vodka at 7am, or 6am or whenever. Was up to two bottles a day in the end. I hated myself but felt that the only thing that would make me feel better was alcohol. I know now that I was kidding myself big time. Am right here angel - feel free to ra...

Re: Are you drinking now ?

Linda is so right about the detoxing - I managed to get mine by literally sitting in A&E until somebody did something..... I found tapering off really hard, impossible in fact. But I do know that seizures can kill you and your body is adjusted to alcohol now - and it would really not like a sudden m...
