    What’s new you ask. Well it’s just after 7am.yesterday was the 16th day since I left my job and relocated back to Auckland.and I’ve drunken every single day starting in the morning as soon as the supermarket opens and carry on all day..just yesterday I got told I need to stop drinking…something weird happened yesterday..I drove past my house and when I was told that I had gone past the house I turned around and then proceed to drive past the house a second time.

    • Yes can relate to that and yes you probably do need to ease up on the booze. I am a fine one to comment. Has happened to me many times and I have lived in the same place 16 years.

    • So what does today hold hon? Can you link in to some help, or are you able to cut back and start some new, positive steps?

      • For some reason help is not on my radar as yet…I did get some antabuse before I moved up some point I will no longer be able to afford to drink every single day..also it’s going to take me some time to ajust to living here.I came from living in the middle of nowhere to the biggest city here

    • Were you drunk while driving? Best decision you could make to give it up eh? ❤️❤️❤️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    • Hi @dizzy take care … we are here to support and listen be strong you are worth it xx

    • I can relate to what you’re saying @Dizzy. Beware, the money does run out and you’ll be scratching for coins. The daily desperation of not having the money to buy booze is crushing.

    • Ooh lovely while you are trying to give up alcohol please don’t drive . You could kill yourself or others. You will feel so much better if you just get a few af days under your belt. Especially in the lead up to Xmas . ❤️❤️

    • Oh that’s not nice to hear @dizzy – please don’t drink and drive. It really is incredibly dangerous not just for you but others on the road.
