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

Hi all, need to talk again. I am at the lowest I have been for many years, but have admitted now that I can't stop drinking and sort my life out without some sort of professional help. It's not just the booze, but loneliness, feelings of my life having no purpose, etc etc - I really need proper coun...

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

Hi, neal, I do know what you mean, I think I'm just trying to be honest here about how I feel about stopping. I do need a date tho, it gives me something to work up to, it's just the sort of person I am. I need time to get my head round wehat I am doing and why, and prepare for it, eg make sure I ha...

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

Hard to know where to start. Probably not posted for about 2 months. The business got crazy and I just kind of gave up trying, It was manic, I had bottles everywhere, at home, at work, bedside drawer, work fridge, bottom of boxes of stock, car, bottom of the sack of dog food, f*cking mad. Vodka, win...

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

Thanks guys for your kind words <:)> I walked to work today, if I don't have the car then I'm far less likely to nip off to buy booze. Plus I DO NOT want my staff thinking they work for a p*sshead, that's a bloody good reason not to drink at work :( Thanks for the practical suggestion re eBay system...

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

I know, i know...sigh...aaargh why do we keep doing this to ourselves? I know what I need to do. I am actually just placing an ad in my local post office for another part timer to help me, I have one part timer who does most of the packing and posting (it's a mail order business) but I could use som...

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

Had a bad few days, gone off the rails. I DON'T WANT TO DRINK ANYMORE - it makes me feel sick, I feel embarrassed and ashamed for the way it makes me behave. I've thrown away the last of the booze, am gonna move on. We went to the Dogs Trust today and are taking on another dog on Monday, he is adora...

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

Hi all, thanks for your nice words, Rebecca and Damson <:)> I stayed sober over the weekend, I just kept putting off drinking, just trying to do another few mins, then circumstances would change and I'd not be physically able to drink due to hubby being around etc. Today is hard tho. I am at work, m...

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

Hi, just checking in again. It's nearly 4.30pm, another half hour and I can go home. I'd love to shower and curl up in bed with a DVD, a bottle of wine and my dog...sigh. I just love the idea of switching off from work, and alcohol does do that. If only I could just have one glass, or even one bottl...

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

Well, it's another day and I didn't drink. I kept putting it off and putting it off, then hubby got back from work and had to walk over to my work to get the car to pick up his son who was coming to stay for the weekend; so that left me with no car and a freezing cold wet evening, and no way was I g...

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

Hi all, done another day, fourth one. Can't quite believe it. Still feel its tempting fate to join the 7 day thread, I feel under pressure when I do that. Normally Sun/mon/tues are bad for me as sun and tues are days off, and mon is a flexible working day, and it's all too easy to buy booze. But i f...

Hi Shayna, re getting back onto the challenges, I am actually a bit scared to do that, I feel if I start counting days I am tempting fate - I feel right now I would rather just count 'today' as it were. But the main thing is that I keep going. Part of me is unofficially counting tho - it's day 3 tod...

Hi all, Still sober. Had a good shout at hubby earlier, he came over to my work for lunch as he was working from home today. He was going on and on about what a mess my stockroom/packing area is and how Health and Safety would shut me down if I didn't do anything about it now that I have somebody el...
