Dear Snoozy, we are all here for you. Try and rest and look after yourself. Just get by for today, it's only one day to get through.
Much love to you.

Thanks guys xx

I just feel sad all the time. I have no desire to participate in life . I do my weekend job ,then back to bed for the rest of the week.

I have depression , I just can't get out of this rut. Even going to the docs is a major effort. I just have no motivation whatsoever .

Even when I drink it solves nothing and doesn't make me happy AT ALL .

Yet here I am 8 am in the morning wondering if I'm going to drink today?
That's my life at the moment

Hope everyone else is doing well. Keep on track Casey , you have come to far to go back xx

Oh Wendy.
I hope and pray you can beat back the urges.
I remember how fearful you were about having permanent damage from drinking. I would never want that fear to grip you ever again, sweetness.

I will let you all in on a rather stark fact. It sometimes seems like I have the tiger by the tail when it comes to alcoholism. But, frankly it is quite hard on occasion. Thankfully I am determined this time to beat this and remain sober.
There 's one rather large reason that I try to stay on track.

If I were to drink again. There is the very real scenario that I would drop off this site and not return....ever. Or at the very least, a very long time.
My drinking would grip me again so hard that I would simply move away from here and drinking would consume all my "free" time. I know that sounds strange, but, my personality would lead me down that path.

And that my friends would sadden me very much as I do care about you all.
So I will continue with my new sober life. Not just for health, happiness and the joys of being aware of life. But also so I can remain here with you all.

BOB

I absolutely agree with EVERYTHING you just said. That's probably what I would do too, it's scary isn't it ?
Thanks for keeping it real my friend.

Dee you know what , I'm going to do just that! .
I have to take Holly to work in an hour but normally I would just go back to bed.
I'll shower , take the hounds around the block & stay out of bed today.
I have a gym apt to help with my back at 1.30 today , so I'll stay up .

Let's get this day moving.
Thanks Bob & Dee Luvya xxx

Wendy!!!

I'll be here on the site for a bit.
It's nearly 9pm here and I always have my trusty lap top nearby.

Dear Snoozy,
As one who has depression, I know only too well your pain. Please, please, don't put off seeing your doctor. I believe you need medical help. Please don't drink. It will bring you nothing but more pain.
Not a word from Rod. It upsets me, I'd rather he'd been honest and just broken up with me instead of treating me this way. I've determined that I will not contact him. I just have to get on with things and do things that are good for me. Not drinking is part of looking after myself.

Thanks for thinking of me, SnoozyQ. I am doing very well. Finishing up day 95. Just got off work, drinking a delicious cold soda water with a splash of cranberry juice. It's my new favorite drink.

Currently I'm messing around here on SR for a bit and then going to watch an episode of Friday Night Lights before going to bed. I work again tomorrow night but am looking forward to being off work on Wednesday so I can go to my AA home group and finally get my three month chip. Never had one of those before! I think they're a pretty blue color.

Hope you had a good walk with the hounds and that your gym appointment also goes well. Check in whenever you can. We're here for you!

Leshar--you are doing an admirable job of handling the situation with Rod. Sorry he turned out to be a dud, but I'm so glad you're sounding so good since leaving the hospital.

Hope everyone else is having a happy and sober Monday/Tuesday! Talk to you soon. Thank you for keeping me sober one more day.

Bob, your post made me start to cry....at work!

It is so sad, but true, withdrawing and secrecy is the last thing we need, but the worst part of this illness.

I'm hearing you Snooz. When I want to drink, the last thing I want is to go somewhere (here) and know I'm gonna be told what I already know. I agree doctor is a good idea. Not only that....some long term counselling or support. Don't underestimate how big this hurt about your granddaughter is and all the stuff you want fixed.

You deserve better than this.xx

((((Sweet Snooz)))). Your doctor will likely be able to help with the depression; please make an appointment. Croiss is so correct; you are dealing with so much emotional pain.

(((Leshar))); he is absolutely unworthy of you. He doesn't deserve a second thought.

Bob, your post put a lump in my throat.

Love to all the Julyers.

Quoting this again because it's right on the money.

you're hurting Snooz - it's a horrible situation on a few fronts and it's beyond you to fix this on your own.

There's no shame in that.
Get some help

Hi everyone,

Some great posts here. Snoozy, I agree with the others. You deserve to be yourself again. Do whatever it takes my friend. Thinking about you

Leshar, I have to agree that this guy sounds like he has some issues. I think you are probably better off without all of this drama? I know it's disappointing though

Rainy day here. Doing well so far this week. My last drink was Sat night. I am back to journalling again and just started reading Drinking: A Love Story. Can't keep white knuckling it anymore and drinking in secret like this and lying to my family is killing me. It makes me feel such a horrible person. I want to get back to liking and respecting myself again. I will not drink today!

i love you Crois xx

I really believe missing Ryleigh so much has made me come undone. I'm having aweful nightmares where I have her then they try to take her back , yet she cries to be with me .

I can only hope they are treating her well, I feel such grief . I love Ryleigh dearly & Hope she missing me too xx
