(((Arura))) So sorry to hear,
medical issues are terrifying for most or all of us,
but often times the results are are more positive than all we fear....
I have been there a few times myself,:dunno
and the worst thing to do is not follow it with a day two...
Stay on the bus with us, you want to and you can,
Take care and check in often,
we need you here ya know!!!!

PS Vic has a special seat belt he used to loan me....:bus

(((DQs))) Hang on, no quitting today

Many of us are guilty of falling into the relapse trap. Like Ash said, quit now. Don't let it develop into a days on binge. Learn from it and make some changes. That is all you can do at this point. Let us know how you are and check in. We are here for you to show support. We will help you get through your medical scare. Find strength...

wingsfree 07-28-2006 07:07 PM

(((((Arura))))) I'm with Ash and LeAnne on this....quit now, I've done it over and over and over again, like so many others here...get back up as fast as you can.

Yep we panic when something upsets us, especially medical issues. I will tell you something, I have two large tumors living inside of me, they've been there for years, I paniced also, but drinking isn't the answer, all it does is aggravate the situation, which we all know.

You have your sober days that you worked hard on putting together, let them add up again, do what you have to do to get back on track kiddo.

((((((((Don't Quitters)))))))))) not quitting

Luckyv2 07-28-2006 07:44 PM


You are not the only one to do this relapse thing and you won't be the last one to do it either. That is just the way it is, if this was really easy to do, then there would be a lot more people with more sobriety than newcomers. The newcomers are the most important person at any meeting! You are important, and we love you. The used to tell me that they would love me until I could love myself! This still holds true.

Just For Today, WE NEVER have to use again. Even with what I went through the last few days, I have not used, it hasn't been easy but it is doable somedays are easier than others. So be grateful for the hard days because they won't last.

Love Vic :hug:

Arura 07-29-2006 12:38 AM

Thanks Vic, im back on the horse today, but im still abit shocked :frown:

I must of tryed hundreds of times to come off others things ,why did i think drink be to any different...?


Ohh n its back to square one again.

2dayzmuse 07-29-2006 12:46 AM

Never give up. Back to square one. It is much better than day 2 of drinking. The last time I drank, it turned into a 9 day binge. I was crazed and couldn't stop. I drank morning, afternoon and night. I drank more and more. It about killed me. I don't know how it happened. Well, I started with that first drink, but I never imagined where it would lead me. That is the scary part of alcoholism. You never know where the insanity will take you. And it usually isn't good. I'm glad you are back. How's you head? Ughh!!

Arura 07-29-2006 01:26 AM

Im so Grateful i was'nt completly slaughtered, as i would have a migrane aswell this morning...! so not worth having a drink .

Arura :Val004: I'm so happy you're back as well.

Little Missy 07-29-2006 09:25 AM

((Arura)) I replied to your post on the alcoholism forum. Chin up girl and no drinking today!! Read the Don't Quit poem!! That is life.

I think you posted somewhere, After all that why this? (or something like that) I have had that feeling a lot. Like life is one big joke on me. Like the Big Guy looks down and says, "HAHAHAHAHAHA, let's see how she handles this one!!!!!"

Everything I go through, there is a lesson there to be learned. It is a time for growth. I have actually met some situations with a little humility, dignity and some grace. Who would have thought!?! You are just at the beginning of your situation. How do you want to meet this challenge, with humility, dignity, and grace, or drunk out of your mind?

Actually, I was grateful I was sober so I could have the surgery to correct the problem. I didn't think they would remove my parts if I was drunk, I may have bled to death. LOL

I also sang that song Que sa ra, sa ra (can't spell it, hehe) whatever will be, will be. It seems to keep popping into my head. But I don't know any more of the words and the ones I knew just kept going. I'd just shake my head, and laugh!!

When you are upset, you post on here. Get your thoughts out and let us help you. It works for me!!

No Quitting for me today!!
