    I hope you do get some early nights…all your hard work you deserve some peace. Ive been taking magnesium and 5http. Sleep central. I do spontaneously burst into tears (several times today infact!) but that feels cathartic in a way.

    Nice one Daisy! Im right with you just on day 9 (yikes!) I feel it too (the temptation) but i can see the benefits past it now (more than a few days ago). Also i thought more of the withdrawal symptoms would have dissipated (how do you feel??) … like sweats, mild shakes, and a raw feeling swallowing (perhaps thats actual damage to my oesophagus…[Read more]

    • Yay us is right. I’m struggling with fatigue and depression- no pink cloud here. Moments of calmness and satisfaction- but not enough to keep me going.Taking one day at a time;)

    Heya @katieandolive i know what you mean about replies! Stopping drinking is super hard for sure, but the more you lurk around this site and process your thoughts you will come to a decision about what you want to do. Just stay close and check in alot. You dont have to post anything but hopefully gain some insights from members here. Ive been on…[Read more]

    Superb! 6 weeks is an excellent knock. Love your therapist! I survived a Xmas party in weekend by gripping and refilling my fancy ginger beer constantly….oh and eating lots (goes without saying!) 😋. Plus leaving early….not rude early, just civilised early. Gluck for that event, I bet you will step up and even enjoy it!

    Gosh this made me a bit teary @soberheart and @auzange . A bit close to home for me!! Our kids are so precious. Lets do this!

    Hi there @katieandolive. How are you feeling? How was the weekend?

  • Ducky posted an update 5 months, 2 weeks ago

    Whats this? Herbal tea at breakfast?!?!.. no desperately glugging strong tea or coffee?! Yet another happy benefit of waking up sober to the beginnings of a fresh week 2. Was wobbly yesterday but i will be logged on here around 4pm for some moral support. Go warriors!!

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 2 weeks ago

    Actually thats bang-on @jocord i think being busy has saved me this weekend and meant I made it to day 7 YE-AH. @shiann you must be a few days ahead?? I had my first registerable seismic wobble today but nothing came of it. Thank goodness… i was SO grateful that the clinking in my bag tonight was from gingerbeer i had had at a bbq and not…[Read more]

    • Good job on the ginger beer plan for the bbq, @ducky!

      Having a plan and being busy is def key for this gal! I had a super busy, fun weekend – my oldest boy turned 30 (hard to believe because for a lot of years now I’ve felt like I’m 32 haha) and so we had a bunch of good family things happening, and a whole lot of gratitude-y feelings. &#x…[Read more]

    Snap! Day 5

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi @shiann hows it going? How’s is the plan going? I took my dog for a massive walk yesterday you will be pleased to know. I’ve been so slack on that front and she’s suffered too. So thanks for the inspiration. I may go for another shuffle this evening.

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    This is very cool. Good on you.

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi @citygirl how’s day 6 going for you?? Some may say its too soon to call but I’m gonna go ahead and say Ive made it through Day 5 today. YE-AH. #feelingstrong #kindof

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi @katieandolive. sorry you’re not feeling well. Can be a blessing if it gets you through a day or two without drinking. You will feel doubly well on the other side! I’m so pleased I’ve made it to day 5. I had a wobble this morning only because of the tiniest insecurity at work, truly nothing but enough for my mind go STRAIGHT to thinking of wi…[Read more]

    Cool plan @shiann. Developing recipes sounds like a fun job too! No i havent anything solid like (plan-wise) that but then again this week has been pure upheaval with moving house. I will definitely start evening
    dog walks again asap. Love doing that! And a fizzy drink… thought i might get some of those fever tea tonics. Yum!. My tricky…[Read more]

    Yay Yay horray! Im finishing Day 3… happily too. A friend gave me a bottle of wine today as a thankyou gift and I gave it right back saying ‘thanks but sorry I dont drink!!… she was all good. happy days im so glad youre back here. Look at you gracefully cruising into day 4. Easy!

    Thanks @jes 🤗

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Cheers @timidwarrior. Sounds like you have nailed the first month and beyond!

    • @ducky and everyone else, first of all I seem to have no options to reply when someone mentions me in a comment. Not sure why, Second, I have not been successful. 🙁 I won’t stop trying. I don’t know why this is such a mind game! alcohol has such a hold over me.

  • Ducky posted a new activity comment 5 months, 3 weeks ago

    Oh wow @shiann thats fantastic! Lets plan for another clear headed morning tomoro. Im going to supie now (in the morning as opposed to usual afternoon) so that i dont feel any pressure to buy wine. How do you plan to get through the arvo/ evening today??

    • That’s a smart plan @ducky! Avoiding the grocery at certain times is part of my strategy too! I just wrapped up a light workout – a super important piece for me – and I have my 4-6pm plan in place. That’s my tricky timeframe when I want to go to the store to buy wine or pour a 1st (of probably 4 or 5) glass. So…

      1.) Workout
      2.) 4-6pm plan (I’…[Read more]

    • Just checking in. I’ve been sick so staying in bed sleeping a lot. Here’s to a sober day!
