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

I did it, I did it, I did it! :D I got home last night without having a drink. I was SOOOOOO wobbly, on the drive home, I actually signalled to turn down the road to my local shop to buy drink, then suddenly straightened up and started shouting 'I AM NOT GOING TO DO THIS', and kept shouting at mysel...

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

Thanks Maddie for your words, they are much appreciated :) The exercise route is not feasible for me at the moment, I am working far too many hours to have the time, plus my arthritis would cause me a lot of pain if I tried brisk walking. If I had the time and money, I'd go swimming. In February whe...

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

Hi peeps, Well i am sober so far today, don't know how. I really want to go buy some, I feel like it's my reward for staying sober today. Being sober is STRESSFUL! I need some 'chill pills', something that would just relax me and make me feel like the first drink does. I don't think my doc would giv...

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

Ah well, I did one day sober. Started ok today but lost it by the afternoon. jus tired and low, and I find it sooooo hard when I have a day off and am on my own. Maybe even if I can just manage to stay sober on my work days, that would be a start - and I know I can do that. Maybe I was aiming too hi...

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

I've done my first day! It was hard, sooooo hard. I feel really tired and emotional, had so much anxiety when I left work, I ended up spending most of the evening moving round a bucketload of stuff at home including furniture, that I've wanted to do for ages, the house has been a stressful place cos...

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

I feel better now :) Just had a great distraction - two lovely ladies came into my shop and spent £40 between them. I don't get many walk-in customers as I'm mostly mail order and eBay, and my shop's not on a main street with natural footfall, so this was really nice. They raved about how lovely ev...

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

Argh, I am getting worked up already :( I had an issue with a customer who has refused to return a damaged item but has already received a replacement (yes I know, I should have waited till I got the item back), it's not even worth a lot, about 2 or 3 quid, but it's like I just look for things to ge...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi all, I am having another go at day one. I have to do this as I will lose everything if I don't stop. Today I feel like I've been run over by a truck, the last couple of weeks I've not even been trying to stop. The last 2 or 3 nights I haven't slept well, I have had awful backache that kept waking...

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

Thank you peeps for the kind words. Lil, I'm not ready to tip my drink away yet but I might be before the end of the day. I just feel afraid to try now, after trying so many times and failing. Alanatsky, I wish I could believe I WILL crack it one day, at the moment I don't - yet I have been sober be...

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

I wonder whether I could try for Day One today... I haven't even been trying for days now, maybe a couple of weeks. Just restocking on booze and stashing it in the usual places. I'm so low and tired all the time. That's not just cos of the drinking, I have clinical depression anyway (am on meds but ...

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

Here I am again. I'm not even trying to stop at the moment. Someone said the other day that they had had counselling sessions with Tobin, how do i find out about that? Is it online? Does it cost? I've nothing left to lose at the moment. Still managing to work tho, and even taken on my first member o...

Re: The First 7 Days

Thanks George, I sometimes think people like you who have seen me stop and start so many times must be getting really fed up with me, I feel like instead of encouraging me you should be saying 'oh for gods sake get your act together'. I was saying to hubby last night that altho he has seen me have s...

Re: The First 7 Days

I'm getting really grumpy now. It's about 3.30pm and I am wading thro piles of work. It seems to be going so slowly. Everything is irritating me - when I piece of paper falls on the floor, when i drop my pen, aaaargh i feel like i could kill someone, or me. I'm aching, tired, my knee is hurting (had...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi guys, I'm on day two today and I wanted to get some of my grumpiness out of my system and get a bit of reassurance and hugs before I get on with the rest of my day. I got lots of work done yesterday (always do straight after stopping drinking, I get a bit manic), and had a nice evening. Slept ok ...

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

Thanks for your nice comments guys :D I am truly knackered now, been sorting out my stockroom, heaving boxes and shelving around. It's funny, when i stop drinking I tend to get like that, kind of manic, it's like a huge desire to prove to myself that I can do something other than drink. Also it help...
