    • @Classic50. All I can say is that the monkey lives in your head and it must be trained! Mine was very feral and it took a long time. Keep at it. Invest yourself in yourself.

I have gone back too many times to count and what I noticed very clearly was that the crash and burn always turned on the same thing… emotional pressure, whether personal relationships, work or something else if my emotions triggered negatively I was in turmoil which ended with me using alcohol as a release.

    Much love to you and your family Mrs D. It truly is a grand day to be sober, sadness is free to have its true form when experienced with a clear mind and heart and body and then it can return to being the love it was born to be. Arohanui Mrs D

    Thank you for your post! The analogy you made between your recovery and running is so good. I felt like I could see you and in that see me too. I’m day 2 after a terrible break and learning about the way you took charge after your 3 drink slip is just what I needed to hear today…I’ve come to the same conclusion, I just cant socialise in the same…[Read more]
