Hi all,

Snoozy, so glad you are home now. Thinking about you ((hugs))

Crois, congrats on the new baby!

((Leshar)) take care of yourself. I've had low bp before and know that feeling.

Doing well today. I just keep telling myself alcohol is not an option - no matter what.

Oh Leshar, sorry to hear about your fall. It is a bit unsettling, low blood pressure., the dizziness can come over so quickly.

Good luck with your appt today. Buena suerte!

I'm so glad to hear you're doing well Ladybug.
And oh no Leshar, you fell and cut your face? Thank God you didn't end up with a concussion.

I've done that...sober. I also have low blood pressure.
I went around a corner in my tiny flat and misjudged because I was dizzy, and smashed my head on the door jamb. Concussion and hairline fracture.

Anyway....I'm glad you are alright and seeing your doctor.

Hey let, I was just thinking that I haven't caught up with you lately, and then I realised it's Wednesday. Well, Tuesday night for you, so I hope I will 'see' you in a few hours.

How is your sister doing Crois? And the baby?

Love to everyone, and good morning. ♥

Hey gang,

Night Wolfy.
Glad you are home, snoozums.
Congrats on a new baby in the family,Crois.
Hope you stick around for a while,Pete.
Leshar, hope you get that BP under control.

I'm watching a detective show called Homicide Hunter.
Kind of wish I had gone into that line of work.

Anyways, relaxing by the stove as it's a little chilly out this evening.
Already took the pup for a walk.

Hi Julyers, hope you are having a good night/day!

Ladybug, that's great you are taking booze off the table. Do you have any face to face support that can help you after the first few days of resolve?

I always started with the strongest of intentions, only to somehow someway let drinking back in. It could be that I felt good and wanted to celebrate, felt bad and wanted to check out a little, it could be stress, my wife could look at me funny... Well she wasn't my wife yet but you get the picture...

Resolve is great, but it tends to wear off after a while...

Hello wehav.

The other thing about "resolve" is that once you start to feel better physically and mentally, it can be easy to forget why you made the promise to yourself in the first place. The AV loves that.

Safe and sound. Do you know why you feel the need to run away in life? An honest question. Not trying to by a pysco babble therapist.
LET ! this is a GREAT question & has really had me pondering over it for ages!

The one thing I have learnt is that you cannot run away from ANYTHING as it will still be there in the morning , no matter where we have taken ourselves off to.

I haven't felt happy for a very long time time.

Maybe deep inside me I went to Townsville cos I knew I could drink without anyone breathing down my neck !

I thinkCrois, you mentioned it and I past it off as no biggie, but deep down the thought was enticing.

I had been fantasising about it for a while.

Where did it get me ?????! Nowhere except up to my neck in shittt.
Problem after problem. God knows I've stillgot the wrath of my Mum & Dad to come yet ( gulp) I'm 53 and that scares me more than anything! I HATE knowing how much I hurt them , it eats away at me .


I am so very sick today , my sore throat feels like I'm swallowing shattered glass each time I swallow. My arms and legs are aching,
I know I needed more than panadol so I took the bull by the horns & went very sheepishly to my doctor.


I just told him how sick I was , he checked, all my glands are swollen , my temp was 40.1 my blood pressure is through the roof. My throat is ...his words..( horribly pussssyyy ) ) my chest hurts , he was amazed I could get out of bed to get there.

He asked about my drinking , I was honest . He said look there's no point in discussing this today. But he gave me a number to ring as soon as I get home.

I did that , with the drug & alcohol clinic. Had a long honest laborious chat as it hurts to talk and I'm losing my voice ! My doc doesn't think I'll be ready for work on the weekend but I really hope the antibiotics kick in. So my docs orders are stay in bed, go nowhere ....the usual, drink lots of fluids etc.

I said to him he must get sick of hearing about me getting off the alcohol. He said sometimes it can be a long process and he has faith in me.

He said you are too good a person for this to take you away.
I felt like crying. He gave me a hug, even with my ***** throat !

He said we will fix you , I'm making it my mission because I really like you.

What a wonderful sweet man.

It strengthened my conviction as I don't want to let him down :-(
I will be having ongoing phone councelling as well as a few other things we will discuss when I'm well.

Leshar I'm so sorry about your fall. Keep taking your blood pressure . Do you have low blood sugar also ? Poor darling girl ️xxx


Keep going Ladybug, we need to stick together for our survival here. We really do love.

LETITGO thanks for your question, I am still pondering it. I think I was running away fro myself !

I'm so glad you saw the doctor love. And this is the beginning of your plan, and that's a really positive step.

Loads of hugs. ♥
