Morning all, morning deb <:)>
Not a lot to report, huge anxieties about the future, money etc with the job situation but I know I’m doing the right thing for now and I’ve preserved the opportunity to go back into the profession I mean about but love later in the year. IF I can prove to myself I can stay sober.
I don’t know if I posted this but I also have a place in the Brighton marathon next September.
I really have to get my act together next year 🤦‍♀️

Always wanted a three day weekend

Ads just ordered a take away so no cooking either x

Morning all - thanks for dropping by Finlay

Debs, Serend, Sleepy be lovely to yourselves!

Weekend coming up should be safe - Christmas coming up but won't be ordering the huge amounts of booze I usually do that's for sure.

Going to treat it like a big hairy spider in the garage - keep a wary eye on it but not freak out about it!

Love to all

Morning Mr T, good way of thinking about it 😂
Very foggy here, laying around drinking tea but I must get up and moving. I swore I wouldn’t use this time out from working to become a big old slob and be productive and get out in the fresh air.
I have done stuff to stick on eBay which will help with Xmas if they sell. A massive trampoline in my ex’s garden fur one that we got for my daughter last Xmas and she’s barely used so it’s in v good condition. Buyer will have to collect though and I wonder whether anyone can actually be bothered but it’s worth a try.

Hello everyone,

I'm returning (with my tail between my legs!) after 5 months away.
I plan to sit down and have a bit of a read back through how everyone is on here. For the guys that I know anyway. I'm sorry for going quiet. In denial I think! For others who I don't know, hopefully I'll stick around and get to know you.

Things haven't been great but I'm hoping I've just finished my last glass of wine for a little while. It was the last bit in the house!!
Xmas is coming up so I know I'll drink around then but the plan is to have a few weeks with less drinking/more sober days.

Lots of positivity and sober strength to everyone <:)>

Welcome home! so delighted you have come back <:)>
I think most of us have had several out of control days/weeks, apart from Mr . T who is smashing it!

We have several MIA folk at the moment but hopefully us groupies will Regroup and be there for the upcoming festivities.

Really happy you back Bizzy...I know everyone else will be too!!

Lots of love 💘
Deb x

Thank you Debs <:)> It means a lot. Logging back on yesterday and seeing your message made me smile and brought a tear to my eye at the same time. The support on here is so helpful. Need to try and make sure I don't shut down again!

I've had on/off thoughts of drinking all day today but am home and in my pj's so won't go to a shop now. Hopefully that means day 1 AF is in the bag 🤞

Hope everyone else is doing ok

Hi Bizzy \:)/

I'm sure there will be more welcomes soon!
Have you gone on any other threads?

I think that 'drink thought' haunts us all, so even if you listen just try to keep posting! Says me who goes off radar when I feel I've failed!!
Let's make this thread something amazing again...because everyone here is very special!!

I attended a course when they talked about the 3 D's..delay, distract, decide. It's kinda worked for me. Even if you delay for bite size times?

Sending love to all us Groupies xxx

I like the sound of the 3 D's. Makes sense! Will try to remember them.

No I haven't been on any other threads as yet. Might do in the next couple of days.
Happy to be posting on this one for now.

And yes, let's make the thread amazing 🥰
Like everyone is

So I have to admit.....
My decorations went up at the beginning of last week :o
Apparently this is known as premature Treejaculation 🤣

Now I wouldn't normally do this. It would be 2 weeks before at the earliest but we really needed some cheering up in our house so we thought sod it

😊🎄💖

My daughter has my lovely tree at hers so the one I have at home will not take a lot of work!!!

Good Morning ALL my lovlies. <:)>

Where is everyone? Looks like Bizzy, Serend and myself just now?
If you are lurking just pop in to say hi so we know you about.
Obviously 'that' time of year is coming fast and all our support and encouragement may be needed.
So no matter how you doing just bob in (::)

Even our Alpha male has gone quiet...he held the fort alone too, for a while

Love to all xxxxx
