Why not start tomorrow at day one and check back in every day. You are neither the first nor the last alcoholic to lie about their drinking. Same with you Neonew.

Sign in tomorrow for day one
join the class of February
Make a plan and maybe get some f2f support too with either AA, Refuge Recovery, SMART, WFS, Lifering or whichever method clicks with you.
You both belong here especially at the 24 hours recovery connections and you both deserve to live sober happy lives

Don't give up until the miracle happens and don't give up on yourself because we sure are not giving up on you!!!
Totally agree with this lovely post. There's no need to be ashamed of yourselves, Neo and NGB. I hope you have the strength to get back on the horse and I'll be thinking of you today.

@Dave- loving the day and night time posts- think I might follow your lead

7.20am UK time, day 20 for me. Still wet and windy. On call was tough yesterday- not on call today though so hopefully will be better!

Have a good day everyone! See you tonight xx

STAY.
I second that SL. SR is like a family. I just feel so sad that so many of us are struggling.
Please don't remove yourself from contact with the support here Neo and NGB.

Morning, morning

Beginning of day 2 - sitting in waiting for man to come and repair my 3 week old washer dryer which my 17 year old broke (by putting an armful of washing in which included a Nintendo 3DS !!!!) so no warranty cover.

The dog is shaking as she is desparate for a walk and totally keyed up and I'm now questioning whether it is today or tomorrow the guy is due!!

Hey ho, we'll see

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great day x

Oh my this is a difficult thing we deal with. Not unbeatable though! Will wait for the return of Neo and NGB. Caring support for both through this difficult time.

Good morning all! I'm here and signing in for my next 24 hours of sobriety.

Neo and NGB I hope you read the posts concerning both of you. There's a whole lot of love and support going your way. Please return and start again. Your always welcome here.

As always, congrats to those celebrating a milestone.
