Re: NOTICE BOARD

Hi All WOW - I feel a little sad writing this but its something I need to do. I'm going to step down from being a moderator. I'm also going to ask Tobin to delete my account. I've been a member on this forum for close to a year and feel that its time to move on in my life. I kinda feel that since I'...

Re: The First 7 Days

Thanks everyone. <:)> Richard - Thanks for your post. I've heard that peanut analogy on here before. A member called Dave D used to say the same thing to me. I can't blame OH though. He is entitled to have a drink and he doesn't force me to have one. I just need to be stronger. I'll get there. WATCH...

Shields up, Aaron. Of course you can stay sober. Get stuck into doing stuff & take your mind of it.
Don't make it 2 days in a row..you don't want to fall back into old habits.

Re: Today, I felt the urge to drink when...

Great idea STB! Today I felt the urge to drink when I found 2 weeks worth of mouldy sandwiches at the bottom of my 12 year olds school bag. Plus school notes which I hadn't seen and homework that he hasn't done :evil: His bag is now washed, homework done and now I'm enjoying a bowl of choccy icecream.

Re: Do you want to say "I haven't had a drink today" ?

Can't believe I got through today. By 7.00pm I was pulling my hair out & hinting to OH to open a bottle of wine which he refused. Thank goodness.
I'm glad to post here today. :D

Re: Good food tips, links & ingredients!

Caster sugar is very fine white sugar. I don't think it will matter if you use normal white sugar though or if you really want to I guess you could blend it for a bit to make it finer but I wouldn't bother... The chops I made last night were great. I missed that I added a squirt of tomato sauce as w...
