Pete, so lovely to hear from you. So glad you posted, particularly as you say you have found it harder the past couple of months. Maybe it's time to revisit some of the reasons why you stopped drinking and all the great things you wouldn't have if you hadn't stopped? Maybe the shift in life responsibilities? Post more often if you think it might help?

Thanks everyone for your kind words on my 8 months, and thanks Dee. Yes, soemthing does feel different now, like there is no other option. Acceptance was the thing that eluded me for so long...like some magical key I couldn't quite find.

Well, off to bed. Sleep is the magical tonic these days!

Thanks Leshar, Let, Dee and sw....you are perfectly right. I also know that as both time I have drank are around New Year/ in the weeks afterward, I actually need to prioritise this season and get myself through safely. If that means not seeing certain family members, then so be it.

Oh and I'm officially 8 months today (yes, I'm happy to celebrate that), but also know 8 months is where I got to last time before my shaky few months of slips until April.
Congratulations, Crois!!!!!!!



You ARE a rock.

Love you.

Hi everyone!

I haven't been on here in awhile so I have lots to catch up on. Had a wonderful trip to Florida and a very nice and sober Thanksgiving. It's amazing how much more I enjoy food when I'm not obsessed with the drink. Need to stay strong and keep my guard up as this month holds a lot of drinking memories. Getting ready to celebrate my baby's 1st bd this Sunday so have lots to keep me busy. Hope everyone is doing well 😊

Hi all,
I'm sorry I'm down. I just feel really sad and empty.
Croissant, congratulations on 8 months! As Dee says, I feel you are in a good, steady place. You've come a long way, baby!
Pete, how lovely to hear from you! Post more often if things seem hard at times.
Ladybug, glad to hear from you too!
Well, I'd be interested in your opinions about an ex boyfriend. Sorry if I'm repeating myself. I broke up with him in Feb 2013 when I found out he'd been cheating. I wrote him a very clear email where I said not to contact me again. He barraged me with emails for a while, then stopped, but left a card and a present in my mailbox on my birthday that year. He did the same thing last year. I ignored the messages. This birthday, today, he emailed me and said he would "pay homage " to me as usual but that he would "knock me up" this time so that I could be pleased with his gift. I saw my psychiatrist today and he said I should email the guy and tell him to cease and desist or I would get legal action. I even popped into the police station on my way to Toronto and the officer kindly offered to call the guy, but I couldn't go through with this. I just don't want to engage with the man. I had a nice birthday visit with my girlfriend and her fiancÚ. There was a bag hanging on my door knob and inside was a very elaborate gift bag with something all wrapped in fancy tissue paper and a sealed card. I haven't opened either, it just feels icky.
Right now I feel like doing what my psychiatrist suggests. I want to leave the present back at his house or office. Oh I don't know. He's a weirdo all right. And he's a lawyer! Maybe I should have let the copper call him. All I know is I feel kinda sick about his relentless behaviour. He'd never suggested knocking on my door till this time. Its like I feel I can't relax in the privacy of my own home.
Sorry for going on. Just needed to get it out somehow.

My advice is no email Leshar.

Get a policeman to contact this guy. That should take care of 99% of weirdoes.

If he still continues after that then you can look at restraining orders etc.

I'm sorry this is happening to you

I seriously agree with Dee here Leshar.
Call the police again, and yes, take the gift to them.
Get a restraining order if necessary.
You don't have to feel frightened or uncomfortable in your own home love.

And....
