Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (NO GENERAL CHAT PLEASE

Thank you everyone for your support. I have spent that long 10 days I worked out. Drinking at night - hangover - drinking next night - and so I eventually felt so ill on Friday but I did eventually get up to tidy the house. I even found an empty bottle stuffed down my couch. I normally store the win...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (NO GENERAL CHAT PLEASE

Thanks guys. I have spent the day in physical and mental agony. I had a bath earlier and felt sooooo hungover. I went to bed. I didnt even dry my hair I felt that ill.

Re: The Road to Abstinence

Ok will do and thanks for that. Its nice that you can open up and be honest. In my world I keep this to myself. No one knows the extent of my problem. Proberbly on reflection people see the extent of my exes alcoholism. They obviously feel it is too late to help. Thats such a shame. Im fed up with f...

Re: The Road to Abstinence

Hi everyone. I am currently off the wagon and in a bit of a mess. I feel the need to share. I was told last Tuesday that my cat proberbly has cancer and I felt if fitting that I buy a bottle of wine. Stupid excuse. Cat has not got cancer and I found out this news by Friday. By that point I was drink...

Re: Cooking: good food tips, links & ingredients

Hi Denise Keep the recipes coming! Love them. I'm not keen on mint so would the above recipe work without or could I just add a litle? Tks Bev Im sure you could leave out the mint. It would then just be a corriander and chilli chuckney. I love it with the mint. The taste is big. The corriander is v...

Re: The Road to Abstinence

Thanks for that acknowledgement. I am still learning. Some days get more done than others but atleast I am moving forward. I have wanted to quit drinking for a long long time. My dad died 7 years ago and I wanted to do good in my life because his death made me realise that life is short. I felt that...

Re: So what'ya drink instead?

Eadburga you sound like me. I sit down at night and chill with my laptop, tv on in the background. Bottle of wine which ended up being more than one bottle and a continuous habit which I feel I have now broken. I was sick of feeling unwell. Like death warmed up during the day. I have found that what...

Re: The Road to Abstinence

When I looked into my past and remembered when I first started drinking, I noticed that periodically it has been set off by triggers. Yes the drinking is a symptom. I have been to councelors, psycologist, alcohol health worker and cognitive behavioural therapists. In the end, they cannot help me. Th...

Re: Cooking: good food tips, links & ingredients

I love corriander and also chillies. If you ever make a curry or buy one, my friend from Pakistan showed me a recipe for a chuckney to accompany the curry. Nice thing is,is that it is low calorie but packed with flavour. You can freeze this chuckney and defrost it at room temperature if you decide t...

Re: Cooking: good food tips, links & ingredients

Here is another big pot recipe. It tastes nice because I used smoked paprika instead of regular. Good with rice. The recipe uses kidney beans but it tastes great without them if you don't like beans. Next time I make it, I will omit the beans. Beef and Vegetable Chilli 1 onion chopped 3 garlic clove...

Re: The Road to Abstinence- Close Call

Phew!! It's only been a couple of weeks and it is the longest I have been sober in years. I had a pretty hard day yesterday as I heard news about my estranged husband and about how his holiday was fantastic (he took his girlfriend with him yet I haven't been off this island in 11 years) I find out t...

Re: Allen Carr's Book

Hi All

Never heard of the guy. At first I thought the thread was about the comediene and was wondering what did he have to do with alcohol.

I read through the posts and the reviews on Amazon and am impressed, so have just bought the book.

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Hi All and thanks for the welcome ;)? I just posted a healthy recipe as I love to cook healthy food and am mad on saving time so I tend to cook in batches. I thought it may be useful to share as I love comfort, tasty food but healthy versions and figured it may be helpful to those who crave comfort ...
