LuLu, jealous about the bike ride, I love this time of year, just brings me peace and the need to bake things,, although I am not very good at it,,,,

Any fish Brighten? Kicking back on the lake or river bank is always a good time, especially with a campfire going.

Wax- so relieved to hear from you and that your friend is still with you.

Hello to all the new folks!

I saw one of those e-cards today that speaks the truth,
Drinking alcohol today, robs tomorrow of happiness

I am turning that into my signature.

Hi, all is ok. I don't have too much time to post. I read up on the last few pages. That poem is great. I've got the windows open in the bedroom, so the crisp fall air is flowing through, and I'm going to climb into that new bed. I'm going to light a couple of candles in the fireplace in there.

I had a big scare, that I blew out of proportion and was really worried about, and everything is going to be fine. I do have extra anxiety and a feeling in the back of my head that something is amiss. When I try to think of what it is that I'm worried about, there isn't any impending problem. I'm ok. I'm worried about the long term, but this is just pure anxiety.

I'll check in, in the morning.

Had a work party tonight and felt awkward. Was good to get out and be with some people. Didn’t drink. Didn’t want to but never felt at ease. But that’s pretty usual and has more to do with me than drinking. Oh well. Lots of work to do.

Good rest all

Back on the saddle. Day 1 complete. I finished a quarter bottle of strong vodka yesterday afternoon which I managed to find (wife was hiding it). Forced to stop after that since no more booze in the house. Not feeling too bad today. First time this year I have stopped after one 2 hour session of drinking. Progress I suppose. Anyway, joining this Group again. No drinking. No romanticising alcohol. Committed to stop once and for all. Have a good Sunday everyone.

Welcome back Horatio, who was hiding the bottle from who? If you dont mind me asking. I live in fear of my husband finding one of my bottles that I forgot about and have more than once torn the house apart looking for a empty that I couldn't account for. relieved that those days are over!

Almost done with my work week, have some garage organizing to do tomorrow after some sleep. Also want to get some baking in on my days off.

Lucky day 13!

Wife was hiding it from me. No more liquor in the house. 1 empty bottle of my favourite single malt in my study cupboard. As a momento. I am throwing that away as well.

Day 1 is sucking so badly at the moment. Have done really well getting through the past few hours. It's been a slow struggle. Very much looking forward to having a day under my belt.

Hey LuLu,

Frustrating isn't it. Hope you managed to get back to sleep!

I was awake most of the night but then advised to try the app "headspace" I think this was around 5am, I just laid back with it on and nodded off.

Still not had enough sleep but at least it did the trick and gave me a few extra hours.

It's 9:14am here now. Just woke up, having a coffee then will get on with my dreaded late tax return, oh the joys lol.

I'm struggling a bit with how I'm feeling, both physically and mentally. Feeling very negative. It's difficult to put into words. Perhaps I'm worried about work tomorrow. If I get through one day working, then I'll know I can do it and perhaps feel more positive.

Just try to relax and take it one hour at a time. Don't worry about tomorrow. Take care of yourself today. Stay hydrated and rest as much as you can. Stay with us! SR really helps so keep posting!

Yep definitely stick around on here! I've only been on here 10 days and It's really saved me and got me through the worst, I'm still in early days, day 11 today, I've had all the emotions, had tears after tears and bad anxiety.

It does pass and I find SR such a help through it!

Enjoy your Sunday, rest, hang out on here, have a nice walk, a hot bath, meditation... try forget about tomorrow then you'll deal with tomorrow better after a calming relaxing day today.

I have work tomorrow and after my last binge I got into huge debt and I'm not sure I'm going to have my rent this month, all my works commission based as work freelance from home so If I don't have a good week I'm f****d excuse the language lol...

We can do it and face the hurdles ahead as long as we STAY SOBER!!!!

Good morning all.
Welcome back horatio. Glad you’re here

Rubaduk hang in there. Be positive about the steps you’re taking. Tomorrow will feel betterdoing taxes? Oh England. I see. In USA we can procrastinate till April. And still sign up for extensions. Not sure I like the golf course my taxes are going to nowadays but that’s a different story.

Had a good sleep. I do like the heavy thud of sober sleep. Too many dreams and a feeling I could continue sleeping all month and be okay with it.

SR coffee and my seasonal happy light to start the day. Let’s have a good Sunday they are in short supply
