I live in Auckland with my hubby and two little boys. I have always been a big drinker, since I was a teenager, but it started really getting bad in 2008 after a major life event.I've been trying to admit to myself that my drinking is a problem for a couple of years now, and giving myself a very hard time in the meanwhile, as I was suffering from depression and anxiety.Alcohol has helped me humiliate myself, hurt people, and make myself sick.I am now 1050 days alcohol free, and very happy about that fact. I have so many good reasons to be sober. I have a great job, a beautiful family and home, and I love giving and receiving support on this site.
if you would like to come, please ask @mrs-d to send me your email address by the end of the week, and i will email you to confirm. i’m putting a timeframe on it so that i can make a booking at a suitable venue when i know what the numbers are.
@enzedgirl I won’t be able to make that get together 🙁 but wonder if I might be able to do a coffee or something with you and/or someone up that way when I come north for a visit to Northland relatives end of Nov/start of Dec? I will be in Auckland morning of Thursday 29 Nov, evening of Tues 4 Dec, and morning of Wed 5 December. I am fine with @mrs-d giving you my email address. 🙂
Thanks @enzedgirl, I would love to come and have been in touch with a few people from the BOP and will be in touch when I hear from them, trying to organise a day trip. Sounds fun and would be lovely to see everyone. Great idea. Xoxxo
give me a rough idea of numbers when you can. do we have each other’s email addresses? @mrs-d i’d be happy to share email addies with @bondi if she’s also cool with that. tbh i think we had them before re the Whangamata get together but my hard drive shat itself a couple of months ago and i lost everything.
hey @ladyhawke – @bondi is one of our lovely BOP members 😀 i wonder if there are peeps coming up from your area that might make it feel more do-able ???
