Re: The First 7 Days

Well done guys! Lots of positive posts ;)? On day 7, can hardly believe it. Felt my focus slipping slightly since day 5 so gonna try AA today. It will be my first ever meeting and I’m not looking forward to it. Pretty cynical about the whole thing tbh, but figure I should at least give it a go. Pi...

Re: The First 7 Days

Well done so far everybody and big hugs <:)> Day 3 under my belt and on day 4. Feeling pretty good although slightly stressed as I’ve lost my Alan Carr book which I was really wanting to read today!! One of the pits falls of being a boozer I guess – a very messy house. Just hope a guest doesn’...

Re: The physical side effects of drinking

Frankly – I’ve been wondering this is as well and I suspect Anonymouse is right. My Aunt is what I’d term a ‘full blown’ alcoholic, I’m taking vodka for breakfast. She has been a VERY heavy drinker since her early twenties and has never made a serious attempt to stop. Anyway, it was her ...

Re: Music, movies and tv

Well, saw Prometheus yesterday and was slightly disappointed in the plot but the special affects were superb and on the whole I really enjoyed it. Definitely one to see at the cinema as opposed to on the tv.

Re: The First 7 Days

Morning lovelies! Day 3 for me. Delighted to say I managed to eat out last night and stick to mineral water, whilst the BF was having beer. Really chuffed with myself. Under no illusions though, this long bank holiday weekend is gonna be tough. At least the weather is crap so the beer garden temptat...

Re: May General Support and Chat

Hi there, Sorry to go off on a tangent, but just found out I can’t post a new topic. I’ve really struggled for years with unbearable guilt and shame over some of the things I’ve done or said due to alcohol. Thinking about these ugly incidents sends me into a panic and depression, which invaria...

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hi everyone, Not technically new here as I briefly posted last year under the sobriety challenge threads. Got to day 6, broke down in a Starbucks :oops: and basically threw the towel in. Had to re-register due to forgotten login details. Feel pretty low at the moment, off work with gastroenteritis a...
