Hi gang.
Leshar...guys??? Even I can't figure them out and I'm one of them.
Snoozums,you have to quit drinking now. The last thing you'll ever want to hear is that you chose alcohol over your kids.
Sadly, it happens. Watched it and seen it happen.
I know that you're strong however.
And you'll put the drinking back in it's box. Never to bother you again.

Crois, never say never when it comes to a relationship.
It very well could happen when you least expect it.
Might even be somebody you already know.
Not me.I'm married,but, somebody.

SW,glad you stop in here and give us updates on what you're up to.
Let's me know I'm not the only guy getting the honey do list done.

Speaking of that we picked up our new dishwasher. Plan to install it tomorrow.

Hi Gilmer and Soberleigh.
Always great advice and encouragement from you both.

Hi Dee, hope any ailments you are going through pass and you are right as rain my friend.

I know Bob , you are so right.

I rang a rehab this morn but they won't take me unless I'm drinking every day.

I've rung a councillor. She was lovely but didn't get much from it .

Maybe I will try a meeting. Holly said she will come.
What a lot to put onto my 18 year old daughter :/ I've just taken her to work .

I'm going to stay in bed today with Shaun and keep safe.
I'm watching the crime channel and true detective .

If I can get this day out of the way I'll be ok .
I must sound like a bloody broken record by now.

I feel this IS the time now , truly xx

Don;t get discouraged over a few knock backs Snooz. I had to try a few things before I worked out what the problem was and how to deal with it.

Your GP might be a good start?

Snooz....do not be disheartened keep calling! Do not take no for an answer!!!

When I had post natal depression, and was suicidal, it took over 20 phone calls to get help. They were the hardest calls to make, but keep fighting for you! You d keep calling if it was for one of your kids, I know you would.xx

Just checking in guys , kept myself out of trouble all day . My day 1 is always the hardest . I'm reading older posts on this thread before I started drinking again , I was much happier .

You all sound happy & positive , drinking certainly doesn't make us happy does it ? It just brings misery and hurt.

I'll get back to that girl I was. I'm so , so ready to do this.

Are you still doing your walking Crois or too busy with work? How's Leah going Bob. I love reading our interactions and posts from the past 2 years.
There is not one judgemental person in this Julyers group.
I love your sense of family Wolfy , I love your stories about your bird Leshar , I've had a few good laughs.

The advice on here when people need it is brilliant.
I'm glad we have Casey back , I'm glad Pete is in a wonderful place with his whole new life ahead of him.
I know Humbugs struggling also and hope she comes back to visit us soon.

I love Lulus warped sense of humour and funny comments ,
I love Gilmer , ladybug & Leigh. You are amazing women .
I'd love to hear from NCG again & Hunt & anyone I've missed ( sorry )

I love random comments from people who like to put in their 2 cents or who follow us and we may be helping them.
I love the Limerick thread where my dear friends there have contributed to helping each other & putting our thoughts into verse.

I love you Dee because you are just wonderful & you want the very best for each and every one of us. You really truly care . I'm so glad SR is your calling.
Sobriety HAS to be great if you have gone do long and still love it .

Tomorrow I have 3 appointments . This is my new beginning & I'm so proud of you all for being where you are now . You are ALL wonderful.

Lots more reading to do :-)

Snooz, you have much to live for. Drinking is a slow ugly suicide that kills us from the inside out. Only now am I starting to realise who I am and still have revealations like, "oh, that's right, I used to like doing xyz"....it's almost like I've had to relearn how to be not only a human, but learn and discover who I was meant to be.

Yes, I'm enjoying walking to work a few days a week, and slowly losing the last bit of my drinking weight. I am now 18 kilos lighter since I began my quest to stop drinking 2 years ago, the last 9 have only been in the last 3 months. (I had some yo yoing in there too last year - I could never crack this last 7 though, so I'm glad that is finally gone.)

Stabilising my food stabilises my mood, and that contributes to keeping me protected from extreme highs and lows. I know that now. I had to do a lot of listening to my body, being quiet and being prepared to stop binge eating down my worries and woes. (There have been times where I've swapped out my addictions and substituted food for alcohol.)

What a brilliant post!

Thank you so much Crois

Hi Julyers hope everyone is having a ok tuesday I've had a good day I spoke to my therapist, I rang up my Dr's to make sure my rereferral to the dermatologist was faxed through as my alopecia hasn't completely healed and there has been the tiniest bit of hair loss in the area where it was

Overall its 85% grown back if not more, so after ringing Dr I rang my dermatoligist and they have the paperwork and said itl be around a week till I'm seen so I'm grateful for that

I've prepared a chicken dinner with fresh lemon zest, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper & nando's chicken rub

Served with roast butternut squash seasoned with pepper & Cumin

& Homemade oven baked wedges seasoned with sweet paprika & smoked paprika rosemary & thyme

I've read more of my Wayne dyer book as well

Spk soon guys
