    Haha I’m going to play this game!

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 1 day, 15 hours ago

    You’re amazing!! That all sux, but the main thing is you have not drunk poison and you were able to play it forward!!

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 1 day, 15 hours ago

    Hi, mine is like that too. Some websites view differently on different mobile devices, I wonder if it’s that?

    Love this post! So true! I don’t like being in a box and those people can’t and won’t put us there!!!!

    Hi, me too. We can do this. Day one is better than drinking! Wish It wasn’t so hard to stop, but it is up to us. I am going to try to be sober just one day at a time and not think about forever. My addicted brain is so sure when I feel like this and then nah 10am tomorrow I’ll be thinking about a wine in the arvo, by 3pm it’ll be strong and by 4…[Read more]

    Lovely message. So true about the waste of money we spend on alcohol! I scoffed at a $12.50 face wash yesterday so I went without, but I made sure I had a $14 bottle of wine in my trolley!! So dumb. Drunk every drop and every other drop of wine in the house. Now it’s 2.08am and I can’t sleep, thumping headache, feel sick and really let down in mys…[Read more]

    You too 😊

    I get it! Day 2 today, day 1 sux and I’m not having another one! Why keep pouring poison into our bodies??

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 1 week, 3 days ago

    Yes so true, and the evenings. Day 2 for me today – thank goodness, felt awful yesterday!

    • Having endured many, many day twos over the years I have recently realized that no matter how shit you feel it is no where as bad as the daily hangover. The difference is that you get used to being hung over every day and a hair of the dog will always spark you up so you can do it again. Being alcohol free the sickness will gradually get better…[Read more]

    That is so awesome! How exciting for you! I love the phrase sober super power 😀

    It is so great you don’t feel like a drink! Your mum sounds beautiful, and your adventure sounds like something to look forward to. This time of year does bring up strong emotions, especially with family. Hope you have a good day, you are doing amazing!

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 1 week, 6 days ago

    You will be fine, you can do this. Booze won’t make it any better.

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 2 weeks ago

    Hi, all done 🙂

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 2 weeks ago

    I’m like you and drink till it’s gone. I try and only have two and did on Thursday and Friday after none for seven days, and so I thought I could only have a couple last night but no of course I couldn’t. The cycle had begun again. Today I feel so puffy and bloated, it’s gross! Day one for me, I can’t moderate.

    • I know. I hate that it’s an all or nothing choice! But then I think I know it’s a poison, why do I want to put a poison in my body. I gave up smoking after 25 years of a pack a day. That was in 2001. I don’t want to smoke, so why do I want to drink? And especially Pinot Gris? I can leave other alcohol alone.

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 2 weeks ago

    Hi @bobby, you’re not alone. I drunk yesterday too and today back on day one and feeling tired, sleep deprived, frustrated, guilty, anxious my kids will follow in my footsteps and sad as I told them I wasn’t drinking again and I did. Time to soilder on and be strong. Let’s look after ourselves today and try and figure out why we drunk yeste…[Read more]

    • I think you answered your own question, @Lotus! The perfect example of don’t get too HALT. Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. Good for you for figuring it out.

  • Lotus posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Thank you for your advice. So true! I will remember that it is just my addicted voice and part of my brain wanting the alcohol. It can go jump!
