Again I can only thank you all for your support, and I can vouch it gets so much better. My partner who moved out in June, after 5 years together, because of my drinking... turned up with a boat load of wheels of cheese and crackers to make me feel better, many friends got in touch after somehow learning of the situation and even my cat is being nice to me. Happy lady right now - didnt realise I had all of this back up

Day 12...wowza! Still under the weather with the cold but doing it. No cig in 11 days (respiratory issues certainly help this).

Ok so no massage. I decided I wanted a hair cut and walked into town to see if they could fit me in. When they said they were booked out tears welled up in my eyes. Too self conscious today to let a stranger touch me. Now sitting on the beach crying. Think when my son goes I lose the drive to keep it together and try and be happy. All the sadness comes pouring out if me, the loneliness becomes very acute. I have no appetite and am smoking like an idiot. And I just have to sit through it. Grit my teeth and grin and bare it and hope that it will pass and that I find joy in some other moment.
HEAVY! Sorry.

Same for me mira and no, not heavy just real

All the sadness...guess we've just got to let it happen. It's not so much gritting my teeth because I'm resisting drinking, it's the, the, ........feelings

All I can think is that it would be sadder if I were to drink. That would be really sad.

Congrats on Day 12 whatcouldbe. Well done on the cigarettes too. I stopped smoking 2 weeks ago today, the fatigue is debilitating. How about you?

So stupid that the thing that saved me today was copious amounts of cheese! But I would have taken anything, I don't think Peter realised what a difference he made to my evening
