Snooz, I will just be honest and say I always worry when you go quiet because it's always been a sign previously that you were drinking.

I hope that's not the case, but please reach out if you need to. This past relapse was hard for you to get on track and after nearly 3 years, we all know and care for each other, so no judgement, because it could be any of us if we don't stay vigilant. That's why I guess after all this time, I hope you don't mind if I share my thoughts and concerns for you. It's meant in kindness.

That's why I love you Crois. Because I know you have my best interest and wellbeing at heart.

I will not isolate, I totally agree with you. That's my pattern , I isolate , then I drink.

I will check in every day to stay on track.
I have no intentions of drinking, the thought actually makes me feel nauseous.

As long as I have all of you each day, I'll be ok .
I read my book of affirmations which really helps me.

I know my moods when I drink. If I'm feeling sad it will only exacerbate those feelings. If I'm feeling happy ...I turn sad when I drink...if I'm feeling angry ...I feel sad when I drink. When I'm sad I feel even sadder when I drink.

It's a no win situation for me & not having had a drink in about 6 or so weeks I'm clear headed enough to realise that.

I'll be ok, I just need to get through this.

Thanks everyone

Xoxox

Love you all .

I'm glad you took it the way it was meant, Snooz.xx You can get through this.

Sw, my old Priest years ago explained that the word "love" and it's original interpretation has been lost and the word misused for so long, what does it really mean? He said, and I think it's a nice interpretation, that it means some thing similar to "steadfast". And I think that is true here. We will all stick by each other, no matter what. We understand the struggle.

Croiss, I am just catching up here.

I like the idea of writing a letter to your son.

Writing gives you the opportunity to say all you want to say in a loving and non-confrontational way and also allows you to draft and edit so that your concerns and opinions can be stated exactly as you want.

Thinking of you, sweetie.

Good morning everyone,

Made it through last night - it was very hard and my AV almost won a few times, but I stayed strong and after we ate dinner my AV slithered away. Laying here with Abby while the others sleep feeling so grateful for sobriety right now. Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I have a long way to go, but this morning I feel like I had my first real win over my AV and it's been awhile since that has happened. Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday/Monday.

Hello all,
Snoozy, stay strong, we are all with you.
Croissant, I'm sorry that you are having concerns about your son, especially as you see the way things developed with his father. I hope you come to what for you is the right decision in approaching this sensitive matter.

I'm at my friends doing cat care. It breaks my heart to see the old kitty. I really hope my friend and her fiancÚ will listen to me when they get back. At the very least, she should have a vet assessment. It's not kind to leave her this way.

I had a lovely time helping out at the play. It was a long day, busy, but I enjoyed seeing ppl I knew and feeling useful.
I'm going to audition next week for a play called The Cemetery Club. It was made into a film. It's good experience to try out and get used to rejection too. I'm going to have to practice my Noo Yawk Jewish accent!
