Thanks for the hugs guys.
I think what I need to do is find some long term goals...something to focus on for the future.
Stopping drinking has the potential to be so transformative...I'm usually quite good at delayed gratification so I will apply my determination to beat this bastard addiction (excuse my French). :evil:

Well done on day 5 Katey. ;)?

Day 4. 24 sober from 30, happy with that, but I seem to be on a holding pattern at present. I suppose that gives me time to stabilise or firm up my current habit, then I can improve further on that. I will never forget my old day 1,s plus the 2,3, and 4. Withdrawn, no appetite, can't sleep, shakes, sweats and the thought that that I can't break free. It was 2018 since I experienced that and I never want to go back there. On Friday I had a few drinks after 16 days alcohol free and on Saturday I had 5 pints and 35 cl of vodka, a lot for some but for me that would have led to a 70 cl bottle of vodka and 2 beers on day 3 then a continuation until I'm feeling to ill/ low to drink. When I drink these days the alarm bells ring and I get it stopped as soon as I can because I know exactly were it will lead.

Hi Rose,

I’m starting Friday.
Just having a couple of beers now & tomorrow.
Working anyway & I learnt a long time ago not to get smashed on a school night.
Suffered horrendous hangovers years ago.
Partied until wee hours then woke like death haha.
Stupid me.
Ain’t done that in years though so no chance I’ll be doing it now.

From the 1st I’m going all in 👍😎

Keep on people 👍😎

You’re great 👍
