I’m going to join and hope this is my permanent class home. I’ve been in too many, but I will never give up. Just finished day 1 and looking forward to waking up without a hangover on Saturday morning.

Dee and Suze, you are so appreciated. Thanks for caring about all the people who post here.

itís a nice feeling. And I donít know what has shifted but I have less shame right now than I generally do at this stage. I think being honest with my husband and my therapist has been really helpful. I still feel desperate for recovery and I feel uncomfortable physically and emotionally but not like iím a horrible person. Tomorrow my goal is water. I always forget to hydrate in withdrawal.

Well done to you, too!

Hi all. I'm choosing to taper down to try to avoid the worst of withdrawal symptoms. So, Tuesday will be my day one.

Dee and Suze, you are so appreciated. Thanks for caring about all the people who post here.
I will never forget what it felt like the day I joined my original class thread in Feb 2013.
I was so very lost.....and then I wasn't anymore.....the understanding and caring from everyone in the class, and the incredible support and wisdom from Dee saved me.

Getting the chance to give a little of that back is a massive blessing for me. ❤️

So happy for you daring Jewel....day 1 done.....onwards together my friend. s xx

Love the meaning of your name.... s ❤️

And I am going to take up your suggestion....I have never watched Doctor Who. I know, how is that possible?
Now I know where to start....thank you. ❤️
