    Feeling alone is so awful @sober4real. but you are doing the sober thing beautifully. Keep going. im going to see my kids and grandies for 2.5 weeks over xmas,and Im already dreading coming home!! where Ill be all by myself. Not even a cat to smooch. (We cant have animals in the subdivision where I live)

    • @Annie oh that is so wonderful for you but I understand the not wanting to come home. If it makes you feel any better I have a cat and she is a worthless piece of fur! hahaha typical female who isn’t all that affectionate….it’s more like just to have something to look at and take care of. I’m very happy you have the family time to look forward to!

      • @timidwarrior I got your response in email but don’t see it on this thread. I agree loneliness and depression go together for me for sure. I don’t have any friends – I’ve cut them all off over the years. In fact tonight was that party I chose not to attend but just a bunch of friends who still drink therefore I don’t hang out with them. I have a…[Read more]

    Hello mature Friend @reginald

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 6 hours ago

    Enjoy that massage.

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 6 hours ago

    Well @enzedgirl im with you. My sister can drink 2x bottles and wake up chirpy!! If I ask–how do you feel? she says fine,just a little tired! OMG—is that because shes not alcoholic and sleeps like a log with no regrets,guilt,remorse??? I think it is. Any comment anyone?

    • @annie she drinks two bottles and you say she’s NOT an alcoholic?

      If she wakes up feeling OK then she has a very high tolerance to alcohol and you only get that by drinking a *lot*

      Two of the criteria for diagnosis of an alcohol use disorder are having to drink more to get the same effect ie growing a high level of tolerance, and withdrawal s…[Read more]

    • Does she know the health dangers @Annie ? Pretty bloody serious risks for moderate drinkers let alone that amount. Scary. I think it is way better to get a violent hangover and hopefully be warned by that. My friend is the same, very little effect from a whole bottle – but she has chronic pain, and hates her overweight ness … and the $$$$ !!

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 6 hours ago

    shame,guilt remorse—these haunt me every day of my life of stuff Ive done to family and friends in the past. Thats why I go to AA—-where I can get relief from this by doing the steps.

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 6 hours ago

    Oh @ro—sounds like kids are little children wanting to be grownups but dont have to emotional intelligence to do it. I recognise the behaviour because I was there. You are a wonderful role model–hope that rubs off on them. PS—i have Floridix on board now!

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 6 hours ago

    Love your post @bravo and i have written that analogy for myself. im finally starting to look after ME!!

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 7 hours ago

    Oh @reena. Praying for a quick recovery for you. what Oral surgery did you have done. Ive worked in Dentistry for 40+ years so interested.

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 6 days, 7 hours ago

    Lovely to read your post.

  • Annie posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    Thanks @Ro. I have used all the above as well—Zopiclone, melotonin 2mg prescription magnesium. Zops are the best but not easy to obtain. Interesting to read about Floridex—I used to give that to my kids 30 years ago. Im going to give them a go. Its possibly the iron in them that helps with sleep.

    • Ro replied 1 week ago

      Turned out after someone on here suggested I got an iron count that my iron level was really low. I was talking the liquid but forgot it sometimes. The pills are easier for me to remember for some reason. It is great stuff. I’m due to get ablood test again prob so be interesting to see if the level has changed much
