That's really sweet of you. Thank you.

I really need to be more determined, like this little guy...

I honestly think I'm foing to be ok now though
When I was younger I did a lot of drugs, then one day I was like " this is boring now and these drugs are making me paranoid" so I just stopped, that was about 10 years ago, I still did cocaine a couple times a year but the same thing happened- boring and I lost interest,
Now its beginning to happen with alcohol too- the booze has its claws in deeper but I think I'm done with it.
I still have cravings but I think has more to do with a 15 year habit rather than anything else.
I might actually be ok
You will be too shabby

Hi Jen - it was a disaster. Stress has now increased tenfold. My mother rang, and had gone to Cray Cray town over something (not unusual), but because I'd been drinking, I handled it badly (I've since sorted this). I also got a call from a work colleague who organised a get together with me to talk about something. Trouble is, I;m not entirely sure what day and what we're talking about. I still don't know what to do about that one. Thought I might just be 'honest' and say I was out for dinner and had a couple of drinks. Actually, I was drinking at home, but the former doesn't sound quite so bad. Any thoughts guys? Or should our support not stretch to helping others get out of drinking consequences with fibs.....?

Right Jen after my first 8 months sober , before these 2 years . I was like how can I enjoy this I know what it did to my life & what it made me become . Crazy Almost ruining my health is the "only" thing that stopped me . Only thing that's still stopping me .

Just tell him you were at an ABBA concert and couldn't understand what he was saying, what with all that swell Swedish noise and everything.

Nesty, the way you are planning this out is, well, scary.

It's not a plan per say , at least I don't think so ? I'm saying - I know for a fact I will be a total wreak . Coming home to an Empty house again . It will be a Huge test of my strength .

Maybe you could plan something else? You could even go to your doctor and get something to help you with the first week or two, which are the worst. If you say it's to prevent you from drinking I would expect they would be happy to help(?)

Get a new pet now, but not a dog- maybe a budgie like I have, that way you, the budgie and baby will all be together, and if its baby's time, then you still have the budgie, but it won't feel like you're replacing baby.
The bird honestly brightens up my life and my house, I love him

Oh geez, (((Nesty))) I could never be mad at you.

But I must take leave for now. There is peril in the air, I can feel it. So tomorrow I will check in here earlier and more often in case someone needs or wants to talk. We have a good group here. If we stick together and help each other out, we'll be fine.

Until then, peaceful dreams for all.
