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

I have done something good this morning. After drinking for England the last 3 or 4 days, I've got to work and thrown out the bottle that was in my work fridge, and also the bottle I brought with me, so I have none here today. I am going to drink pints and pints of cold water to try and flush out al...

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

I don't know how to start this. I did about four days sober then crashed again. No real reason, but then drunks don't need a reason. It's 4am and I have just tipped away a drink, I had that much yesterday I felt sick just looking at it now. I just woke up with a pounding headache, no surprise there,...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hiay, I posted this morning on the SOS thread and dear Scrunch suggested meeting here to see if we can get thro Day One together...hope so! I know when my bad time is, it's when I leave work that I tend to head for the local shop instead of going straight home. Whilst |I'm here at work I'm ok really...

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

Morning people, I was thinking that it seems I am destined to never get past day 1, but I don't seem capable of actually managing a whole day one at the moment, never mind geting past it. I'm terribly down about it, angry, embarrassed, frustrated, upset. I'm trying again today; just tipped out the l...

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

So it's day one today. Hubby is working from home today, which helps - because my shop is closed on Mondays, as soon as a delivery I am expecting has arrived, i can go home and work there alongside him - it's very lonely working on my own every day. I'm gonna keep trying to win. My business means to...

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

Just thinking, it's like the more I open myself up to the potential for failure and damage and hurt from the world around me by sticking my neck out trying to achieve something, the more I want to shield myself from that possible hurt - with booze. When I drink, it's like I'm untouchable, like I can...

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

God, I know, I know, I know. I was just thinking, I have a choice of two epitaphs on my tombstone when I die....'she succeeded despite alcoholism' or 'she failed because of alcoholism'. That's as simple as it is. The rest of my life is that simple. I'm halfway thro this mad thing called 'life', dunn...

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

Sigh. I will have to try for day 1 tomorrow. I don't want to....but I really want to. I'm sure someone I out there will know exactly what I mean. I don't want to talk much right now, I just want to stop drinking, and stop wanting to drink. Two very different things. My business is really moving on. ...

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

Hi all, I am doing another day one today. I did 3 days last week, but didn’t look after myself properly, I worked a 12 hour day on Fri, which was my day 2, then on Sat I was in a right state physically and emotionally and couldn’t stay sober. I have to look after myself; rest when I need to, and...

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

Thanks digga....yeah, I am, aren't I? ;) <:)> Thanks Zara too, it doesn't come naturally to me to be professional, in the sense that I respond emotionally instinctively, not objectively and this - especially when I was drinking - used to get me into some INCREDIBLE spots of trouble. I just with eBay...

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

Hi guys, just need to talk. Day 3 for me, feels odd somehow - how icky I was feeling, both when I was drinking and on day one, I don't feel ill now, just extremely tired. I worked a 12 hour day yesterday, and my emotions go mad when I'm first getting sober, they go all over the place so that wears m...

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

Yes it's me again, sorry for the constant posting but it helps me, it's a bit like keeping a diary, it helps me to write stuff down, with the added bonus of getting support :) Currently in the middle of assembling three sets of shelves so working up a sweat. I've just come to have a rest in front of...

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

Bleurgh, here comes the withdrawal :( Keep breaking out into a hot sweat, terrified I am gonna stink when customers come in, luckily I keep a body spray at work. I have a small fan at my desk so I keep turning that on to cool me down. Had an egg mayo roll from the local deli for breakfast when I arr...

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

Morning guys, thanks so much for the unwavering support <:)> Don't feel as ill as i thought i would, but still a bit icky. I had to smile at your finding more bottles, Chevron - I do that a lot, keep finding them in bizzarre places, like in the sack of dry dog food and the bottom of the laundry bask...

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

It's 5am and I have just poured away the last of the booze so there is now none in the house. I did that before looking at anybody's posts, by the way....great minds think alike ;) I'm now forcing down a glass of iced water and a couple of painkillers to try and ease the crappiness I know I will fee...

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

I'm finding it really hard to get off the booze treadmill at the mo. seems one day I have some booze which i drink; then late afternoon, i think i will quit at the end of the day, but when i look at what's left in the bottle, it's 'not quite enough' to get me thro to the end of the nite, so i buy mo...
