Re: The To Do List

Morning Everyone. You’re right Rachel, it’s horrible out there today. I set my alarm late and I’m still in bed, tucked up cosy and warm ... the dog is asleep beside me. It’s the perfect day not to do too much I think so make orange marmalade your only task and enjoy the lack of pressure. Is it easy ...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

So true Tai. I oftener had this fantasy that just the very act of drinking would change my life ...turn it into the complete opposite of what I had at the time. Oh no the reality I can compare to cooking something from scratch. Living a sober life is like cooking a dish. First you finding the recipe...

Re: The Six Month Challenge

Well, something interesting happened to me today. I’ve edited it since I posted it because i realised I left out an essential word, which I’ve now typed in bold! :roll: My Tesco delivery arrived and I happened to be doing some exercises at the time so my partner took it all into the kitchen. He said...

Great Post and quote Pink.

I had a dream about swinging about in a trapeze with an American president last night. :shock:
Not the same as a drinking dream I know but still unsettling :lol2:

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

Thanks for the advice Trojan; I will check out your link about the journaling. I must admit that I have been keeping a journal on and off for many years now. Perhaps I have been approaching it all wrong. I tend to write about my day, or what’s going on, off load but I admit I don’t tend to reread an...

Re: The Six Month Challenge

Thanks for sharing your story Cowboy. I had to giggle when you said that men are only children in grown up bodies. :D It sounds as though you and your wife love each other dearly. 40 years is an amazing achievement. One of my motivations for not drinking was because I became quite feisty after a few...

Morning. I hope you enjoyed that bath Trina ... I could spend hours in the shower. I sometimes use two different shower gels because I just can’t get enough gorgeous smelly therapy :lol: I shower virtually in the dark, with just the light from the hallway as I find it really helps to calm me down.

Re: The To Do List

Morning Peeps! Well, pretty much everyone I know is struggling with the latest lockdown. Being with your ‘nearest and dearest’ 24/7 is a big ask. I think it’s a bit like someone holding a huge magnifying glass over your smallest pimple, thereby turning it into a volcano! Being stuck behind four wall...
