Well a) I am detoxing using meds and b) if I do I will be back to square one in weeks. That's all it seems to take to return to my normal drinking patterns. Scary.

I'm getting fit for my run
I love my job and hate being hungover doing it
I do and say stupid things when drunk
and most of all, once i start drinking I can't stop.

because the day of the long awaited knee Op has arrived and I will be under anathestic which means I wont be aware of anything around me and I am not looking forward to it ...which is strange because that was the effect I was after when I used to go on to the second bottle of wine :?

It is no longer time for my mid-week top up. I feel very good about that today.

... we woke at 5, with the sun already splitting the sky and a family of crows kicking up a most unholy noise above the rooftops. Looked out the window to see what the fuss was about and watched a fox wandering through our neighbour's garden. That's the sort of thing I'd have slept through when I drank.

Now it's 9, and the sun is still splitting the sky. There are plenty of weeds in the garden to keep me busy. I might try lifting the first potatoes; and, with the weather as it is, I may even be able to con myself into believing this is the countryside.

I'll be too busy to drink.

It is day 9, I feel like ME again, alcohol is vile ........ And if I clean my act up I might actually pull a nice bloke (come on you didn't think I wouldn't throw a little bit of Shelsey humour in - although if you know one ;-) Pmsl)

Today's day three. If I can surf the rotten mood I'll inevitably have today, tomorrow will be much better for it!

Forgot to post here today.

I will not drink today because I just don't want to.

It is way early here (3:40am).

I will not drink today because my subordinates are starting to become more confident in my abilities since I've been sober.

You all have a great, sober day!!!!!

Good Morning!

I will not drink today because I don't want to poison my mind and end up in the black pit of despair I've wasted far too many days in before. No way.

Have a nice day.
