Morning all

Loving the jokes!!

Great news Listae-very well done on getting through. Building up your sober muscles

Great news on sleep WL - my sleep improves hugely when I don't drink though takes a few days to settle down in the early days

Congrats Dig TC & FF on your days and everyone else of course

FF - a week is fantastic and a huge milestone-please don't play it down

Hopeful- I hope you don't think I'm prying but how do you know your BP is up? Do you test it regularly or just know from how you feel? I have one of those fitbit things and get pretty obsessed with checking my pulse at times, I'm sure just checking it makes it race, but that's just me

Lilylady- I've just realised you must love liles with your username-I have been very slow of late!

Myst - sending a hug back and a group hug for us all

Day 17. I had to stop and count then which is good. I like it when I get to the point I have to count. Sober seems like the new normal. It is going to be really hot here today (well, hot for Scotland ) Feeling positive and have peace of mind. Of all the benefits of sobriety, peace of mind is the overall thing for me. everything else leads to peace of mind.

Have great day all.x

Not much but I have been struggling to get a week together without drinking hand sanitizer

Why the hand sanitizer? Is that your only option? I mean, you don't have access to beer?

Just curious.

I drink beer until I run out of money then it's on to hand sanitizer. I've been broke the last couple of weeks
Sometimes when I have money I drink hand sanitizer waiting for the off licence to open
But hand sanitizer isn't so bad. I prefer it to mouthwash

Oh that sounds like AV talking. Hand sanitiser is really bad--it's not meant for human consumption, It's so toxic and can cause blindness, severe organ damage and death

Please don't think I'm criticising you btw, just worried about you.

Good morning folks.
Day 4
Over the past months each week I've been pretty much drinking a real lot over 3 days and having 4 days
off.
Will now be putting a stop to that!
Take care everyone,
John

Congrats on 60 days, Dig! And on a week, Freedom!
I'm so glad you slept, WL. Day three and you've slept, that is awesome.
Congrats on 11 days Berony! And on 17 days RAL!
Congrats on day three to you, Listae. I know it's been tough, but you are doing it. I have blood pressure issues, too. I take meds, and try not to have any salt. It's stayed sort of high but is finally improving. I've also been losing weight, which helps.
Hang with us, John! I'm glad you're here and I'm sending positive vibes.
See you all later!
