Re: Regrouping

I dont really believe in karma zippy but i hope those sort of people end up getting theirs. My old work (where my wife still suffers) has the problem of bone idle people but they seem to have an immunity from managers. Vertical,whatever helps ,stuff the diet for a night, how many calories in booze? ...

Re: Regrouping

Great words faith, you still sound chipper! We do seem to love to pour that stuff into our mouths dont we? Listening to a sober podcast again & they mentioned how it takes around 66 days to create a new habit/form new neural pathways , not 21 or whatever it was. So we need to stick it out & we will ...

Re: Regrouping

Hi sg Well done on skipping on the wine, i can relate to that (albeit beer) but i guess its easier when you say to yourself at the start of the day 'i will not drink' ,& keep reinforcing it. That way the day gets easier because youre in "no drink" mode, but if you/i have had the odd slip here & ther...

Re: Regrouping

Yeah, go easy on yourself tad, & remember , those worries are just the high anxiety that comes with stopping drinking. I had the same when i stopped last friday, i was so sure that i was going to get pulled up about smelling of booze etc... I worried myself stupid. But it was mostly just the alcohol...

Re: Regrouping

Hang in there sg! Back on wagon again? Yes facebook, oh how its a double edged sword! Im getting tired of the oynb posts actually, i may unfollow.
