Hi guys , I'm baaaaaack

Just been catching up on your posts.

Wow some wonderful milestones here.

CONGRATS BOB ON 1 Year & 6 months. You're awesome, xx

CONGRATS LISA on 1year & 6 months benzo free, what an achievement , you should be very proud of yourself xx

CONGRATS Suze on 1 year & 3 months xx you rock chicky!

So proud of you all.

Sorry you locked yourself out WeHav but congrats on the new house lovely.
Hope you're feeling better soon the Wolfy one xx

I had a lovely Birthday / Australia Day long weekend :-) we had a ball .
Beautiful house we stayed in, but weren't in it much.
We did lots & lots of driving , it was fantastic.

I've got the booze out of my system & I'm loving life again.

i think I'm on about day 21 or something. No cravings ...but have put on some weight with all the iced coffee.

One thing at a time :-) I'll address that later.

Hiya Crois, Dee,Leigh, Let, Leshar , Ladybug where areeeeee you :-)
I've missed you ALL.
I tried to log in up the peninsular but had no reception on my phone.

Well I'm off to have my shower & get glammed up a bit. Rebekah & Holly bought me tickets to see GHOST , the musical for my birthday.
It's at The Festival Theatre , so I'll try to look posh!

It starts about 8 so Holly & I better get organised. Need to unpack , wash our stuff
Get dolled up, then hit the road Jack!

Always nice to be home :-) xxx the dogs were soooo happy to see us. The cats...meh ! Not so much ( little ***** )

Congratulations Venuscat on one year and 3 months, that's fantastic.

Thankyou to all of you for the kind words on my benzo clean time. It kind of made me realise I really should give myself more credit than I do (well I know that that it reminded me in a very obvious way). And focusing on that achievement for a moment has been a really nice thing for me. I have always discounted it, saying to myself "well I would have had to have gone to a doctor and made up some story to get pills, or I would have had to have gone online and bought some, or I would have had to have gone to that part of town where I know its easy to buy them, or I would have had to have taken up my friends offer to get me some".... like those things were insurmountable hurdles and the only reason I haven't used abused benzos again. But that s crap, they aren't insurmountable hurdles at all. And I am capable of making really good choices for myself. Anyway. Thanks for listening to me blow my own trumpet .

So you should blow your own trumpet Lisa ! 2 and a half years is nothing to be sneezed at , now to get the alcohol part to the same time :-) xxx I know you can do it.

Where's Leshar ? Xxx miss you

Wolfy I do hope you're feeling better .

Hi Julyers, Hello Snooz I'm really happy your back

When I said I didn't feel great I meant the cold I was suffering I had a big sleep & then today I took Glen on a big big walk to help me sweat out any remaining cold and when I got home my new book was at the door (a return to love)

I feel lost without a book these days

Hi SoberLeigh, Bob, and Soberwolf.
That looks delicious wehav2day!!
Glad you're back new and improved SnoozyQ!
I took have put on some weight So i am going back to California for work and going to hit the gym and eat healthy. No excuses
Caffeine has been my DOC lately also.

Lisa, i think thats a big deal. I know when i don't take a xanax for a while it feels like an anxiety withdrawal kicks in. I am responsible with them and have lowered my current dose. A friend told me he w/d and they were they were horrible to come off.
Lunch time here.
Family over for dinner tonight.
Have a great day!

I wish we could make it easier for you...

Snooz glad you are feeling good again.

Let, I'm right there with you on the weight thing. After the wedding it was a lot of celebration eating, then holidays, preparing to move, moving... My healthy routing went out the window ages ago. When I find our kitchen it'll be high time I get back to it.

Wolfie, glad you feel better.

Croissant, Leigh, sorry to have tempted you with ice cream. No I'm not, it's great ice cream!

Bob, Venus, whassuppp?

Haha Wehav...I decided last night that tonight is gonna be my one last hurrah after Xmas, ice cream night. I will pay for it tomorrow morning. I don't care. :P

Leshar, sorry you are feeling so low. I'm still trying online dating, and started talking to a cute guy. He was a bit flirty, but in a tasteful way. Anyway, in amongst these messages, my daughter called and I got sidetracked for about 20mins. I get off the phone and he's sent a few messages, and as I'm scrolling through, I realise he has sent me a photo of his nether regions. Uninvited and out of nowhere!

Lord help me!

I thought you may get a slight laugh out of that.

Snooz congrats on 3 weeks. Those are tough coming back from a relapse.

Hate to think of Ladybug struggling alone. Hope she checks in soon,
