Day 25 ;)? Still suffering from caffeine withdrawal headaches, it’s quite mad really, I have my tea so weak and milky I never thought cutting caffeine out would affect me like this :shock: . Anyways my hubby and my mum arrive tomorrow night. We (me and my 2 girls) moved over here about 3 months ago and it’s only now hubby is able to join us so it is very exciting. My mum is visiting for the next 3.5 weeks which will also be lovely. I’ll need to be strong the first few days if their arrive because undoubtedly they’ll want to celebrate with booze.

EH, huge congrats on your ‘graduation’ \:)/ (::)

Everyone is doing so well!!!! <:)>

Hey buddies,
everyone is doing SO well!!
Day 10 here. Really starting to feel the benefits .. it always takes my body between seven and ten days to "feel it".
Sleep is wonderful.
I SO hope my brain is back in the "don't" rather than "can't" box. I am scared to say it for fear of jinxing it.
I fear Christmas, but then think by the time it comes I will be well on my way, so will hopefully not want to "REDO" all the effort it takes in the beginning.
Keep going all you lovely Peeps.

Has the Porky one changed his name? I see similarities in someone on here? Please confirm if so.

Anyway, pleased to be on this path AGAIN with you WIlly Will, you are always such a support to all.

OMG! such a numpty! Not sure if that makes me feel sad because of the implications of the choice.. voiceless, but there to support others. We are all here for you too My Porky friend. <:)>

Hi all,

Day 10 but I had to scroll back up as I had lost track...that's a good thing I hope!

I also know that it's around now I think to myself "I've got this, I can just drink when I want and stop anytime...". That would be a definite "no"!
