I’m feeling stressed and tired (very late night). And drinking thoughts are drifting in. Because a drink is SO going to help stress and tiredness. Fast forward to waking up sober on Sunday.

I saw your post Danny , if you are going to work today ( haven't read in for a few days ) take a flask of soup or hot chocolate , keep full . I do understand the thoughts, I can hear my OH getting the vodka from the freezer right this moment ....

Hope you catch up on sleep too !

Thank you ladies. Taking food is a good suggestion Pickles. As is getting some sleep Nicky.

Senior daughter is visiting, so we’re planning to visit junior daughter (I have her keys, then return so I can have s couple of hours before work.

I feel much better when I have a plan. It puts ‘stress’ into a queue.

A plan is such a good idea. Just recently i have been lax on making a plan for the day and have been procrastinating and lost a bit of direction. Must get back to writing a list and planning the day. Hope you have had a nice morning with your daughters xx

Yeah funny though. I often drink when struggling with tiredness as well as stress. Weird really. Action point one : make sure I always think of the consequences before starting to drink rather than the immediate yearn for a drink
