Thank you for your lovely kind words yesterday. <:)> Everyone has been really wonderful about me going green. It's only been a week, so I don't want to jinx anything, but BE has been almost entirely nastiness free over that time. Long may it continue. ;)?

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

Mags, hi - yes, I remember you. Don't ever worry about posting - you have done exactly the right thing. The first thing to do (as you know) is to get rid of the rest of the wine - anymore you drink will just make you feel worse. Just do it now - without thinking and DON't buy any more. Yes, you are ...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Thank you for posting on this discussion. I thought I had accepted being AF but just lately, I have been in mourning a bit. I'm not tempted to drink; I know and accept I can't - but occasionally, I can look back on the old days when alcohol was once my friend and think, that, yes, it was nice once u...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi Lisa, and welcome. This is just my take on your two questions: 1 I had several attempts at getting past the first few weeks before I've almost got to a year this time. What did I do differently this time? - well, I think I really had reached desparation point and I took all the help I could get f...

That camomile tea and chocolate sounds good! It DOES get easier once you are past these early days. Ke...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Reggie!!! Brilliant news. Same story here - my sobriety date was meant to be 13th September, but I slipped on 1st November 2011 - so nearly done a year now. It's a great feeling, isn't it. I sometimes can't believe it is that long. Hope your life is SO much better without alcohol. Sometimes when lit...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

Actress Your friendl's e mail said it all really. We have all done some really awful embarrasing things and feel angry when we are tackled about it. I don't know what methods of recovery you have tried, but I think your friend is trying to tell you it is time to really admit your problem, surrender ...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

Hi to all who have recently posted on this forum. I have been a member for 18 months or so and a month or so took the decision to move away from the forum, because I feel recovered. I know and have accepted that I cannot drink, but that is not a problem for me anymore. I do, however, log in from tim...
