Re: The First 7 Days

Hello to everyone again ... It has been a while, almost two years in fact! Still battling with the wicked liqueur.

Re: The Confession Parlour...

One of the things that kept me coming back to BE in my early recovery was the kindness and patience of the people here who selflessly posted warmth and encouragement to me as I floundered around trying to find a way through the confusion in my mind over my drinking. I didn't know where to start wit...

Re: Confused

Like I say, I only become truly horrid when I drink whilst mildly depressed/stressed/worried or whatever. Sometimes, I was the life and soul of the party. Thing is, I finally chose to accept that I couldn't always be sure which Mark would arrive at the party - "life and soul Mark" or "a**ehole Mark...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hello everyone I first looked (didn't register!) at this site almost two years ago. When at that time I decided to try and cut down on my drinking. Instead of joining this forum, I put a calendar on my fridge and crossed out the days that I hadn't suffered from a blackout the night before. Of course...
