Hi again...

I was posting fairly regularly mid 2017 and managed to stay sober for about 7 weeks...

Not sure what happened really. Let my guard down. Stopped posting. Started having a few drinks here and there which of course escalated into daily drinking with binges once or twice a week.

But I'm back. 4 days sober and determined. I know how to do this and I know how good I'll feel in a few weeks time, just gotta keep going this time and 'tweek' the plan a bit.

I'm a mum of two young kids, live in Australia. Married. Job. Life looks pretty rosy from the outside. I haven't hit 'rock bottom' in that I haven't lost a job from booze, or my family etc. But it's taken it's toll on my mental health and I'm sick to death of how depressed and anxious it makes me. Late last year my mental health was at rock bottom and my husband was at his wits end with me. Mostly because he wanted to help me but felt I wasn't helping myself. I can't keep going this way or I'll lose my life. I'm sure of it.

I'm looking forward to connecting on SR again. What a great place it is
