No worries

you can reorient pics with any photo editor. Lots of them online - I use a download called irfanview - it's small and free and will resize and reorient pics.

Checking in! This thread moves so fast I can't keep up 🙁

So sorry I have missed a lot and need to catch up. Hope everyone is learning what they need in class. I am doing well but every day has its moments.

Thanks for the new thread Dee!

So happy to be going to bed sober once again. Knowing I won't be waking in the middle of the night with horrible anxiety and that tomorrow morning will be hangover free has got to be one of the best feelings ever.

Love to all

Morning classmates.

It's a blustery and damp day here on the UK.

I posted in the 24 hr thread about the dream I had last night about hearing a song that made me think of my mom here (24 Hour Recovery Connections Part 486).

My other half just said he heard old fashioned music, like from an old phonograph, in the early hours too.

Perhaps we need Mulder and Scully to investigate?

Day 1. Sigh.

One good thing is all my slips the last few days were small. I didn't get drunk and did feel quite sick. So th Antabuse is working to some degree.

But I need to stop having slips.

Morning all
Thanks for the new thread Dee.

Congrats on 30 days Lilylady and everyone else on their days

Love your cat Citrus and its name

Good to see you Fallow

FF - maybe you need some F2F support. The antabuse isn't working on its own. I know days when I drank and didn't get drunk or feel too bad were often the scariest because I thought 'oh I'm ok, I don't really have a problem. I'm not even drunk.' I hope you can reach out for more help irl.

Day 11 here. Wild old day yet sunny but too wild to sit out. I seem to have got into a decent sleep routine now where I fall asleep pretty quickly, sleep for 4 hours then wake briefly then asleep for another 3/4 hours. The only thing is I feel rough when I get up. Maybe it's a sugar headache today from yesterday!!

Jr RAL going to see his father for the weekend. I am feeling pretty rough today so will just take the day hour by hour, No major plans.
Have a good day night all,x

Not much in the way of f2f support right now. Maybe when the lockdown is over.

Yes of course. Can you see your doctor though and maybe get some sort of referral. Or online AA or SMART meetings perhaps.

Good morning Class,

Coz congratulations on day 14 and enjoy the technical day of decking construction!

Lillady- a month! Well done, itís a milestone Iím looking forward to get to

Mysti- X-files 😂

Also congratulation on everyoneís milestones.

Iím now on day 5, I had an interesting/comical evening yesterday, after a day at the woods with my sonís having fun I had booked a swim session at the local lake which has recently opened. I turned up on time and started getting the wetsuit on, ripped the left leg nearly in half, due to the distancing measures we have to do our own suits up. I thought never mind about the leg rip and continued to try and zip myself up, pulled the zip clean off the back of the suit. This was the perfect moment to explode and throw a fit, but something different happened, I took the now wreaked suit off, threw it in the car, and drove home laughing to myself about the situation, just put it down to a Ďwasnít to beí evening rather than going to buy two bottles of red because I was Ďp****d offí.

thats a new mind set for me and I quite liked it, maybe I am in it for good this time.

have a lovely day Guys and Girls 😁

I hope everyone has a great sober weekend

I'm glad you made it back again FF.
Its up to you as to what you're prepared to do.

How it worked for me was every time I relapsed I got a little more open to the idea of trying things I wasn't open to trying before.
I hope it works that way for you and I pray it doesn't take too long - we don't want to lose you, man - you're really pushing the envelope..

Afternoon everyone

Day 3 for me , starting to struggle a wee bit with the weekend upon us. Just trying to remember how bad I felt at the start of the week after a heavy bender last weekend , definitely donít want to go back there again , itís the addictive voices talking away which I am trying to ignore and see through. Got some stuff lined up to do after work today to keep me busy.
