Nearly gave up

As in box of paracetamol in the kitchen - would be so much easier.

I first joined Katy Perry Nazi Shark Super Bowl night . Still not conquered it.

I know people are sick of me so not sure why Iím posting as I am one of the groups failures.

Not sure what else to say. Cyber-support is great but sometimes you need a physical shoulder.

I don;t think anyones sick of you at all- thats your addiction talking


If cyber support is not enough have you considered the meeting based approaches like AA or SMART etc StartAnew?

And please don't think about the paracetamol in that way. There is recovery available for everyone. Noone needs to feel doomed to continuing to drink.

If you're in crisis please call someone.

I thought I was hopeless cause I kept relapsing, but I managed to finally want to be sober more than I wanted to drink. You can too.

Thank you all x

Dee, Iím going to AA tomorrow. We only have two meetings where I live - Monday and Wednesday.

My son is home from Uni so he is going to walk with me to the door.

There are meetings in nearby towns so maybe in time Iíll hear of people who go to them that I may be able to get a lift with. Plus there is a Saturday meeting in the closest City. I was going to say Ďbut the return bus fare is £10í but thatís probably a fifth of what Iím spending on alcohol!!!

Donít know if it was revenge but son insisted I had something to eat so I asked for a single slice of bread and butter. The one he gave me had mould round the edge
Anyway, the Angel isnít cross with me and wants to know what we can do move forward.

How about get to a meeting, eat a nice meal, start a journal, and set a goal that tonight your head will hit your bed pillow sober no matter what?

That last thing has gotten me well down the sober road without overwhelming me.

You can do it!

Thank you Hawkeye. Great suggestions.

Iím doing an online meeting in just over 2 hours as the next physical meeting in my town isnít until tomorrow night and then nothing until next Monday night.

My epic son son is home from Uni and is going to cook tonight which is lovely of him.

That journal idea idea is brilliant, will dig out a diary and get on with that today.
