Back on day 1 yet again.
Feel so ashamed and disgusted with myself, drank far too much again.
I've given my OH total control of my bank account, I can and will beat this.
Hugs to all x

Morning Everyone,

Grey days do make it a little but harder to stay positive so its time for a bit of self care. A hot chocolate and a 5 minute snooze, or a cuddle with your OH (or woof) something that will bring you comfort and turn the day round and make it manageable.

Day 4 here. Feeling okay with no desire to drink at the moment, just feeling shattered. I might have a quick snooze to recharge my batteries. I think doing anything positive for myself will really help keep me going. ;)?

Hope all is going okay with you. <:)>

Keep on trying.

Aw Rose and PandaBear <:)>
It’s so shit isn’t it?
I feel so sorry for you <:)>
I was so ill yesterday, and still feel rubbish today.
We just need to stop drinking!
Good to see you here Pork :\:
We can do this, we have to!
We can’t keep doing the same thing and expecting the results to be different!
We drink, and we end up in a whole heap of shit :evil:
Let’s do it, we owe it to ourselves. No good will come of any us drinking!
I can’t wait to go home....

Day one. I see I am in very good company on here.
The best thing about living in a Catholic country is the extra bank holidays we get. So, hangover and no work today.
Like LBNS says, I need to get my "i dont drink' head on;
Lets do this Porky one.

Hey Lucy
I have got 2 of his books, one specifically for women. I’ve never opened it :oops: Tried to read the general one about 10 years ago, but couldn’t get into it.
Might be time to try again, I know Sober Boots found him helpful.
Hey Zedders :\: good to see you here <:)>
I feel determined.

Books are friends LBNS <:)>

I have a couple of books (not about booze or addiction) that I haven’t opened.
I will be reading some in the morning.

Keep on 👍😎
