I'm a 53 year old female who has come to the realisation that I need to stop drinking for my health, mental stability and my family. I have always regarded myself as someone who had control of my drinking but in the past few years I've realised through some pretty bad experiences that alcohol was controlling me and i've had enough!! Looking forward to connecting with others along this journey.
Please don’t be embarrassed, you know there’s no judgement here. I’m glad you’ve had the courage to post and to me this means you do want to stop drinking. Can you think what’s causing you to not stop?
Love your post and i think we can all empathise with you and everyone else dealing with the horror of last week wherever we are. Lovely gesture with the coffees. Keep posting, we’re all here for support 🙂
New beginnings after horrific last week – loving my early morning walks on the beach and after loving the yoga retreat i went to a few weekends ago, i’m going to yoga tonight – feel this needs to be my new thing to keep me being grounded and me being me! Love and Peach to all xxx
Oh I love yoga, a retreat sounds so wonderful. 🙂 When I was first getting sober about 5 months ago I was doing yoga every day and it made a huge difference. I’ve just got to get back to it. And yes @timidwarrior it silences that chatter brain or the committee whatever people call it. haha!
Loving my early morning walks on the beach and then a nourishing banana, spinach, frozen berries, chia & flax seed, almond milk smoothie to set me up for the day. I did a yoga retreat the other weekend, loved it and am going to a yoga class tonight 🙂
