Good decision on raising the white flag, sometimes we gotta surrender and find support. You have for sure found it here. Are you doing anything else to bolster yourself, face to face?
Hey! Thank you for the post! What did you mean by bolster and face to face do you mind me asking? Hope you're good. All well over here. Thanks again!

Every snow day for the last 10 years was a binge drink day. But today, the fire is going, I am drinking water, and about to make dinner. And I will not drink. And it is OK. Glad to have you here with us!
Ahhh great! Chime in with those three weeks. Its a great milestone for me. Because this the longest I have ever been without a drink. I know what you mean about the snow. I used to do ski seasons and can relate completley.

Thank you tonnes for your message! Its great to be here. Hope you're dinner was cool Take care of yourself now!

Hope you find a new job soon and not just for the money but because it will occupy your mind.

I'm in no position to offer advice but I do know that Hull is a Uni town and therefore quite lively (or at least it was a few years ago when I last went there) so it must be easy to have boozy social life if you are young . I think what I am saying is that avoiding certain places and certain people might be good
hey!!! So you didnt drink new years eve?? I didnt either, so I'm the same day as you. Great stuff!

Yer, Hull is pretty crackers, but Im moving back down south to find work. Ill be starting back in a couple of weeks i reckon. Once Ive found the RIGHT job in the right ATMOSPHERE with the right PEOPLE.

Many thanks for the post. It was great to read. Thoughtful. Hopefully speak at some point. same day sober buddy!:P
