Sorry, was stressed and vague.

I was in my local store when it was robbed. I'm in the UK so gun crime is rare.

I gave my statement, and came home with a bottle of wine and my 3rd day of sobriety became day 0 :-(

Feeling stressed, stupid and pretty useless now :-(

That must have been really scary Virginia.

I hope you get rid of the wine and try to relax.

Yikes! Glad you're okay.

That's a rough thing to deal with in your early days...

Get a good night's sleep, you can start fresh in the morning.

Thank you.

Im sorry for worrying people. I shouldn't have started this thread!!

I'm feeling pretty pointless at the moment at not being able to not drink.

Glad you are OK. Not sure what your last post means.... you feel pointless because you can't drink? Or did you drink it already? Anyway..hope you can relax somehow.

I'm so glad you are safe.

Just stop and dump the rest and make tomorrow your day 1

It's understandable you are in some shock, but continuing the drinking won't improve that--

How about a hot bath and some herbal tea or chocolate?

I'm in bed now having drunk it all. Going to ring a helpline as feeling useless and pointless.

It feels like I'm at breaking point.

Maybe it's not a breaking point, maybe it's your turning point.

Rock bottom can be a good thing to hit! For some people you have to get there to really pull it together and move on.
