I was thinking yeah we could meet for a drink then I realised what I was saying 😂
Is that through your husbands work Bizzy? I can’t even think about how Glastonbury will be drinking wise 🙄 I suppose all I can do is see where I am with being AF when the time comes x
How is everyone else, Tad, doggo update? Xxx

Yes, it's through my OH's work I get a freebie. Very lucky really!
And yes, I'm not thinking about the drinking aspect. I'll have my son with me so I wouldn't get messy. I did drink last year but not to excess. I've got a couple of friends who always go and they've been AF for years. I hung out with one of them a bit last year and that helped.
Like you say, will cross that bridge when we come to it.

Have a good day guys

Yes, it's really helped me through by paying on here before too.
It's a busy time of year at the moment though. Busy and scarey for anyone trying not to drink!!!!

I've got a busy day at work to keep my brain occupied, then booked in at the gym straight after for Legs bums n tums. Hopefully I won't go via the shop on my way home to get wine 🤞🤞

Have a good day folks x

Hi all. Well I’ve had the weekend from hell. Went out with my oldest friend and these two men were buying us drinks. I literally blacked out, I can’t remember anything past a certain point. Then my friend tells me yesterday that one of them was telling her he deals in shipping illegal ‘pharmaceuticals’ into the country 🙄🙄🙄
Ffs I’m 44 why am I putting myself in these situations??? Feeling so disgusted with myself and I ended up drinking yesterday as I felt so awful xxx

Sending you big <:)> 's Sleepy.
We keep putting ourselves in the clutches of alcohol because it's an addictive beast who's claws have a habit of coming back even when we've cut them off!!
I always do the drinking the day after too. Hair of the dog is the only way to get rid of the awful hang!!
A new day today though. Stick with it and us

Hi all - checking in keeping in touch - not that there's much to touch it's all pretty quiet and serene in Tarzan land

sorry to hear of the black out sleepy - but I am noticing there seems to be much more control being shown than in earlier posts- minor slips and then straight back on it - gotta be a good thing

love to all

Thanks Mr T and Bizzy <:)>
Still feeling sorry for myself but yes, I have been managing my drinking slightly more successfully which is why I feel so angry at myself because of the weekend.
Anyway what’s done is done so onwards and upwards xxx

so I was having a dream in which I had become entirely depressed and was stuck under a duvet on a street corner when I woke up - unsurprisingly I felt a bit flat! Seem to have shaken it off pretty much now though which is a relief.

Think it was because I've been reading Matt Haig - reasons to be alive. It's about depression and anxiety of which I've had both but mainly depression - it's an easy read and there's always some helpful nuggets in any book I think so always worth a peek

anyway onwards and upwards everyone!

love to all

Hi sleepy. How you doing. Yes, a great mantra from our Tarzan!

I’m at home. Day off yesterday and today. I did my grade 4 cello exam today. It wasn’t great, but not a total disaster, not totally :roll:

So home now. It’s been a busy day. Doggie had to have a blood test which was traumatic for him and my husband. Then I went to see my parents. Gym tonight. I feel
Like I’m making myself go but I feel the need to. I think I’ll be tempted to drink if I don’t. Everyone seems
To be where I live. I live in town so it’s kind of everywhere really.

Anyway, I’m procrastinating!

Evening guys,

That dream doesn't sound very nice Tarzan! It probably is from the book you're reading.
Tad, your day did sound busy. How was the gym? I did an LBT class yesterday and the back of my thighs are killing me today!!
How are you doing Sleepy?

I gave in earlier and had a glass of wine 🙄 No real reason otherb than I wanted it and my will power against myself is crap!!
Need to get a bit more motivated to stick to a plan.
Hopefully onwards and upwards like you guys tomorrow x

Hey bizzy. I love the ache after a class!

Sounds like you managed to stop after one glass? I simply couldn’t do that.

I managed to swerve any alcohol today but it was really difficult. I did body combat tonight. So glad I opted for the gym as I’d have had at least a bottle, but very much probably more!

so that was an interesting night - I suspect we're not allowed to do politics on the forum as it gets so divisive - but just to say if your celebrating or drowning your sorrows do it with something AF - that way we all win!
