Re: The Two Month Challenge

Know what you mean Jo - I've had to resort to counting the minutes up to the famous ten recently but at least it worked.
Well done to us all ;)?

Re: I cant really talk to my husband about my addiction...

I found the postings on this thread great. Especially the one about the holiday. I am going on a holiday in two weeks time to bury my demons as it were. I will need to be very careful, so as not to drink. Good luck on holiday Madmax. I've just been away and had been very nervous about slipping whil...

Hi all
Tom - just got in and haven't seen a post from you. How did things go today?
Have to go to bed as shattered but will be around tomorrow at some point.

Re: September General Support and Chat

Hey Tom - you got through yesterday. This is just another day. Think about what you can do as an alternative. I meant to say that one of my escapes is reading. One of my current favourite authors is Jeffrey Deaver. If you ever saw the film "The Bone Collector" it was based on the first of his series...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi Reggie Just a quick post as I'm really dozy this evening. I always wanted to just cut down rather than give up. Could manage for a while and then I'd be back where I was before. For me, abstention seems to be the only answer. Funnily enough, it's easier for me than trying control - I'm an "all or...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

Well done Tom - glad the day's coming to a pleasant end. Sounds like you're all organised for the morning too. As I said in my PM - just think how happy you'll be waking up and feeling good in the morning, all the time knowing how rubbish (and broke) you'd have been feeling if you hadn't been tough ...

I don't know Tom - leave you alone for a few hours and you acquire a veritable harem of ladies flitting round you ;)
Glad to see you seem to be surviving AND sharing your knowledge and helping others - good for you!

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

I saw that remark Jo (bet you thought I'd logged off - hah, fooled yah)

I've now got terrible cravings for chocolate, cream etc so its all your fault if the pounds pile on!

Off now for a while - take care both of you <:)> KK

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

It's funny though isn't it, that joking aside, I'd probably feel that I needed ten pints of Guinness and countless double vodka and tonics inside me, before even summoning up the courage to talk to you or any other Ladies in person! Yet, every ex - Girlfriend of mine has said they much prefer me so...

Now isn't that typical of a man - plain greedy!! :lol: As far as the rest of the post is concerned, don't get all knicker twisted in advance. Wait and see what the reply says before you think any further. If you're hungry - get up and go and get something you really fancy. Even if it's not exactly n...

Good grief Tom - you don't stand a chance!!!! Jo and I as a pair of bookends on either side of you nagging to keep AF :D

Seriously though - it's all the people on BE that have helped me along just by posting and telling their stories. We're all in this together.

Who said you had to be witty or entertaining? It's Friday - we're all entitled to be dopey on a Friday ;) You can be anything you like so long as it's sober!!!!!! (Did warn you I'd nag didn't I?)

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

This is the first time in a long time, that I haven't just 'gone with it' / given in, and drank though. I'm so proud of you for that - and you should be proud of yourself. It's so easy when you get so down just to numb it. I know it'd provide a temporary relief but it isn't much good in the long te...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (No General Chat Please

You can trust yourself. Remember what I said? You're bright and the possibilities are endless. This is just a temporary feeling and it'll go - just hang in there and with us until it passes.
