Oh okay, maybe get to a doctor when you can.

Mariet, why do you want to have your account deleted?

No Pork. Have just asked for my account to be deleted.
Mariet, I don't know what's going on, but please don't give up on yourself. Addiction can bring you to despair, but there IS a way through, for you, for everyone. We all hold the seeds of change and recovery within us.

Lush, SB, Pork, Martha and TS thanks for your support.

I asked for my account to be deleted in case I posted something embarrassing or offensive due to the state I was in. I'm not out of the woods yet, but will start again 1st May. Just need to drag myself out of the pit I've fallen into - it will take a few days.

Once again, thank you.
You'll do it my friend, many here have been where you are.
I myself have been in and known such awful despair too, but have managed through , hard work, acceptance, support and sometimes sheet determination got myself back on my feet, now over 4 years sober, something I thought was entirely impossible for a lush like me (hence my username)
Keep posting, the very time when we don't want and turn away support is the time we most need it.
Take care.
One day at a time it's achievable but you gotta want it , with every fibre of your being <:)>

You'll do it my friend <:)> As Lushie and others on here have said, it takes a few tries (a lot in my case) before it finally clicks and we get the result we've been striving for. The important thing is to never give up on giving up <:)>

Good to hear mariet.
The people here are great so dont feel you can’t reach out to anyone. Best support group I’ve ever seen.
I’m glad you have a date.
I have one also & looking forward to getting back to it.
May the 6th for me.
Have a good day & stay safe <:)>

No idea if this helps anyone, but just joined and posted on the introduction feed. Up early watched GOT.....with a couple of Bloody Mary's :twisted: ...BUT, have since had something to eat, cranked up the music and got some cleaning done. Don't get me wrong every time I sit down I want another drink, but if I keep moving, it's not so bad. I think most of us know what we need to do, it's just doing it. Have food, tea, coffee, water, get up, just do something! Good luck all.
