Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

Holy Toledo, but that ice cream sandy looks scrumptious! Don't put it in yer lunchbox for too long, you'll have to pour cream out of the corner into yer mouth! I think Topcat would like that, cleaning his whiskers and purring after the lap-up! But seriously, folks, u can get those cookies, guess whe...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Welcome Anna B Glad to be on the same boat with you, welcome to your new life! I identify with your term "raw" feeling. The thought that goes through my mind, that being sober, no alc, no pills, etc. is absolutely naked. I feel naked without the protection of some substance. That is so wrong, let th...

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

Isabella, Please take another look at your life, before you give up on it. You have a daughter! What a precious gift. I have a daughter, my only child, and I almost lost her and my grandchildren in my heavy drinking years. I am getting her back ever so slowly. She drinks but thinks she is ok, but I ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hey gc, w2bh, ft and ct, Day 5 starts after a wonderful night of actual, real SLEEP , I tried and succeeded in replacing my fears with the Holy Spirit, and it worked. I try to follow AA's concept of a Higher Power. AA has some good points, but I like this forum better, just find it hard to get to me...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi Grey Cat and Want2BeHealthy, Day 4 is drawing to a close, pretty relaxed after my helper gal came and cleaned my house and gabbed to lonely old me. She is 22 but such a nice little sweety, listens and talks and cheers me up with her youthful exuberance. She is thinking of going into nursing, and ...

When you were in Colorado did you go up into the mountains? Just majestic, I love the Rockies, definitely God's country!

But I am from the Stix, the plains of the state, come on back some time, we are still nice!

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

I just hate to go back to my PCP because I don't want to admit that I have relapsed once again after I saw her last. I think she wishes I would see someone else and I probably should do that. I did not want to relapse but I was so anxious about the whole jury duty thing, that as it has happened my w...

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

I hand out advice yesterday on anxiety and today I am totally anxious and panicky. I was supposed to have jury duty today, but had asked for reprieve from it and had my doctor send a note. I didn't go because I was so weak and sick and shaky today that I don't think I could have walked to my car or ...

Hi all, grey cat want2behealthy, and all others, Proud to say day 4 and I am still sober, cravings bad last night and today, many times I would run to the liquor store at 9 a.m. or so and get wine after a couple of sleepless nights.

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Sharon (Sasha) welcome fellow binger. Day 4 of sobriety for me this time. I have quit for different periods of time over the last three years. Last night was rocky but I am still standing! AF again today. You took the first step, now take each day as its own, and let us all stay sober together, ok? ...

Oh that brekky looks good! Thanks and a good scratch for you too, Topcat, right behind left ear! Quit purring! Who knew, crumpets are English muffins! I always thought porridge was chili with crackers, but then I found out it is oatmeal! Well, that was when I was a kid when I thought that, really. W...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Dave, I know, I know, I was so sick, but my liver enzymes are still ok, from the Grace of God! I used to be a lab tech so I know all about GGT, saw that my PCP ran that test on me last time I saw her in a period of sobriety. Thankfully it was in the normal range and my liver enzymes, too. How my liv...

Wow, another insomniac, hello brother! I rarely sleep more than 3 to 5 hours per night, many nights not at all. I read and pray and color in my color books and read some more!

Ladysnoops, if you got $36 smackeroos, Amazon has Season 1 through 4 for that price. I always go on Big A and "will" them to put the price down even more, they were asking $45 at Christmastime. I just love the show, so you owe it to yourself to maybe try that avenue! :mrgreen: I started watching in ...

Welcome fellow newcomers, and good luck. I am still feeling fragile myself, it is always that way when giving up the old crutch. Thanks Amarok for mentioning withdrawal dangers.
