Welcome back Rainy Now is a good time to get back to it but be aware that there is always a good excuse to drink. There is never a perfect time to quit x

Thanks guys- good to be back

I have learnt Dee if nothing else and that must be a good thing- two options

I can continue to drink and be a alcoholic for the rest of my life or I can except the fact that I can never drink alcohol again - was caught by the one beer at Christmas is fine and I can handle it , it's not wine (my vice) so doesn't count!

The last 4 months I hit it harder than ever :-(

I know your sneaky ways know alcohol - you come disguised in many forms to trick us! Ha,you been caught and I'm fighting back!

And the the other thing- thinking I am so clever I didnt need to keep logging on here as I was a superhero and done what many had failed at before!

Oh and it's not rainy in England today- yay!!!!

Feeling good and putting it all behind us is a major risk

Being on SR everyday is enough to keep me grounded

Welcome back. Your experience keeps the expression "it's the FIRST drink that gets us drunk" keeps it green for many of us. BE WELL

Good to see you back Rainy. I got cocky after 45 days and had that one drink. It lead to a 3 and a half week bender. I'm back to doing what I need to stay sober. We are back and that's all that matters


Good luck to you
