Best wishes for Shaun Snooz. I reckon that original GP will be missing a patient...

Thanks, Croissant, for that thought provoking post.
Oh, Snoozy, I'm so sorry to hear about Shaun. I hope he's on the mend.
Glad you're coping. You're right, any unexpected adversity would have me heading to the liquor store before. Not now, just take a deep breath and find a solution, problem solve. Nice to see you Aussies use "torch". Larry would laugh when I used this word, they use flashlight here. He imagined some medieval tool with a huge flame coming out of it. Shaun doesn't want that near his eye!
Hope all goes well on Thursday.
Trekking to TO to see my psychiatrist today, rush hour driving...grrrrr!

Hi everyone,

Snoozy, hope you hubby feels better soon. Eye issues are no fun.

Rainy day here, have kielbasa and sauerkraut in crock pot for dinner. Will have it with mashed potatoes and corn. Not much else going on here. Wishing you all a good night/day!

Don't know anything about bath salts, Wolfie. Maybe you need to rest rather than long walks?
I had a massage and cried again. Emotional incontinence it seems. The massage therapist recommends a visit to a chiropractor. I'm really fed up with the pain.
Pretty fed up with the status quo all round. But I don't want to return to drinking. Just want a break.

Hi Leigh, no, I haven't. I've made an appointment with a chiropractor next week. He does acupuncture amongst other services, so I'll see what he thinks.
Thanks. Hope you're well. Thanks always for your support.

Hi all. Well, as you know, I don't "count" time as such, but did want to let you all know I am at the 6 month mark today. So yes, it does feel like a milestone.

I feel very good, but know I have a few challenges in the months ahead. But I feel they are things I just want to get through and achieve, rather than threats to my sobriety.

I think I slammed every drinking thought this time with so many unpleasant memories, I really find it hard to romanticise drinking now. Still, I do keep on guard, but it definitely does not feel like a ball and chain anymore. I feel free. Life feels good when it's based on logical thoughts.

The past month or so, I've had some really big lessons about things I let slide in my old drinking life. Friendships and managing personal affairs. It feels good to get these things on track. Setting things right.

I've got lots more to tell, but in a few weeks time when I've finalised a few things. Overall, I feel like every attempt I've had at sobriety since July 26, 2013 (relapses in Oct 13/April 14 and earlier this year) have still helped me to get this far. I really, really thank the universe I was able to scrape my way back and get this far. I know I cannot play with fire, alcoholism and a horrible path ahead for me is waiting if I continue to gamble my chances with drinking. I do know - and believe that now.

Thank you everyone for being here, and perservering too on this journey. I think that's half the battle, knowing sobriety really is the only choice. Sometimes it's hard to accept, but we know its the only outcome that will bring us true relief deep down.

Love and thanks to all.
