Day 4 ends in aprox 30 minutes then day 5 can begin. :)

I'm so sorry traderjane. Laura I feel for you I really do. I don't want to leave but I feel like this site is making me feel worse about myself than I can afford to while trying to get sober. I try to say goodbye and apart from you, all I get is 'sorry you couldn't find what you want here'. It's not good enough for me. I hope we can keep in touch hun xoxo we sound very alike and it would be good to talk more

lillyrose 06-21-2010 08:27 PM

I'm crying now because I honestly thought I found my home

super71 06-21-2010 08:29 PM

Traderjane,

Yours was the first post I read when I joined this site.. you inspired me with your "Junebug" group and I felt compelled to join. I am now heading into day 5 and you are part of that for me. Glad you are back with us!

super71 06-21-2010 08:34 PM

Lillyrose,

You have a home here if you want it.. homes are full of laughter, and tears. I didn't read all of what went on, but the overall theme here from what I can tell is support, struggle, failures, success- and humanity. None of us are perfect, but I really think all of us support you in your quest for sobriety - I will for sure. :) I have enjoyed your posts and hope you stay.

traderjane 06-21-2010 08:36 PM

Now I'm choked up!! Good night for now, guys. We're in this together!!!

Thanks so much. I just feel unwelcome here from a lot of people because I'm opinionated. I don't believe in coating everyone in cotton wool. If you censor everyone here, how are they gonna get by in the real world. I would love to stay part of this group, but the classes freak me out too because if I sliip, I feel liek I can't talk to the june group anymoe. I wish there was mroe ppl like you and laura and sleepie on here

..lilly!!!:wavey: don't forget me now..ya hear!!..Ozy..

Traderjane, get back on the horse. Most people relapse and as long as you're willing to try again you're on the right track. I believe in you!

Also, I appreciate everyone's support but I am switching to a different support forum and won't be posting here anymore (I can't keep up with more than one!). Just didn't want y'all to think I had fallen off the wagon!

Best of luck to everyone. We can all do this!

Hi Lilly! I haven't posted in here for ages because I'm opinionated too and it didn't go down too well either but here's the thing.I didn't threaten people with lawsuits as another identity like you have and I also didn't try to garner support from other members here who are struggling with the very real disease of alcoholism.

I have little sympathy for anyone who comes to this safe haven and starts causing trouble from day one.You might want to rethink your approach if you really are looking for help.This is a serious issue and your attention seeking isn't appreciated by anyone here who is looking for real support.Don't waste your time or ours.There's plenty of places on the net I'm sure you can get the attention you want from.
Jules.

I'm right behind you.

Watch out.

Day 8 here.

Do you feel better mf150?

I have not had withdrawal symptoms although I had a bad day feeling shaky after the first few days, but it seems more related to my caffeine withdrawal than alcohol.

How is the rest coping?

Melinda, did you go to the doctor?

mf150 06-22-2010 03:25 AM

Melinda-

You're doing a great job! Did you buy the wiffle bat? LOL

Wilde-

I'm feeling much better...so much so that I actually started craving beer yesterday (despite the painful withdrawls--how soon the body/mind forgets).

My stomach is still normalizing a bit, but overall, I feel great.

A lack of caffeine can cause withdrawls, so it's totally possible.

Hi Wilde,

I am calling tomorrow to make an appointment. I am hoping to make it for around July 12th to give my body 30 days sober before I get the whole shebang done, blood work and all. It gives me the willies but as the saying goes, I've made my bed so I have to sleep in it.

The anticipation of it has pretty much zapped the cravings right out of me. That's not to say I'm not feeling a bit restless, irritable, and finding it completely strange to be sober in the evening. I feel like I've taken a rocketship to Mars every night, leaving at 5 o'clock sharp for the past three years. Amazing what a little fear will do to this semi-hypochondriac.

How are you Wilde?

NeedLifeBack 06-22-2010 04:55 AM

CHalk up another to the group.
Today is day 2. Had a rough time sleeping last night. Today
seems a little better. Bring on day 3!!!

Wilde10 06-22-2010 05:41 AM

NLB it seems like you are getting a bit of that life back already.
Melinda, Thank you for asking. Doing fine - Have had a mild cold last couple of days and it made it even easier but passed the WE, my next big challenges are people coming over to the house. Not drinking the night I was alone in the hotel was a big turning point for me. I feel pretty good in general. The only thing is cravings used to be restricted to the evening. Now they come any moment of the day. I have never ever wanted a drink in the morning. Now the thought crosses my mind. I wonder whether I have been thinking about 'sobriety' so much that actually I am thinking about alcohol more than ever before:scared:

candyheiress 06-22-2010 07:18 AM

I am here too! Hi Laura and everyone else!

Raindance 06-22-2010 07:51 AM

lillyrose, stick to this thread, we're all here to support eachother.

Day 4, the puffy is gone from my face I look like i've lost 5 pounds.

super71 06-22-2010 09:12 AM

Day 5
Feeling quite down and overwhelmed.
Hopefully this will pass soon.
Sending everyone thoughts of strength.
