Don't drink.

You need to give this a chance to get better.

Temptation was a bitch, but I rode it out.

Glad to hear that, Frank.

Are you a movie buff? I went to "Mr. Holmes" tonight -- very good. I loved reading the Sherlock Holmes books when I was younger. Have a hankering to pick them up again.

Aww my complete Sherlock Holmes part of the many books I left behind at the exes. Was too impractical to sort and pack.

So proud you held out Frank I am sure that wasn't easy.

hug.

How are you today, Frank? The temptations will lessen in intensity.

Hello all. I tend to get reclusive and withdrawn when I'm in one of these depressive periods, but I wanted to check in. I think my outlook is getting (a little) better and I'm actually sleeping better the last couple of days. And (not to jump the gun) but next week I'll reach one month of sobriety, so I'm looking forward to that.

Hope all are well.

Don't get too withdrawn Frank or i'll send my ex wife over to the West Coast, she was a pilot too, for a broomstick manufacturer.

A month is a proper milestone Frank, good work. No kind of expert on depression but I have learned that doing stuff - pretty much any activity is better than 'white knuckling ' it.
You mentioned some anti-depressants a while ago, I hope they are of some use

Hey Frank, You're almost there buddy. This is the hard part. You are starting to feel a little better and wonder what harm one little drink can do - ride through it mate. If you want to drink - wait until you know you can control it. Until then - ride it out.

Almost a month mate, almost a month.

Thank you, Dee. I'm pretty shaky right now, but hanging in there. Talking to someone helps, thank you.

Thanks, Dee. The booze store closes in 11 minutes, so I will make it. Geez I hate being this weak. Thank you for talking to me.
