I am a 45 year old Mum, business owner and party girl of old. When I gave up the drugs, I didn't acknowledge that my drinking was a problem. It is just everywhere and becomes such a struggle to be brave and change the mindset.It has been so amazing to find such a like minded community and I look forward to getting further in my journey with your help.
I am stuck in bed with the mother of all colds, but I am not hungover, stinking of booze or ravaged by crippling anxiety or shame, so I don’t care. This is only the 4th weekend since I made the decision once and for all. And I like it. I feel proud of myself every single weekend, that am the person I was meant to be and the mother I need to be.
The hardest thing is finding some lovely new people to hang out with and I just wondered if there are any sober meet ups in Christchurch. I would love to seal the deal and meet some of you. Mrs D suggested there might be a few Chch people here. Would love to meet you!
We do get together, though far too rarely. Now we have to, to meet you 🙂 !!! @Mrs-D will give you my email and I will link you in. Time for a Winter soup gathering perhaps @Prudence (to farewell you?) @marmite, @mullycatnz, @begoodtomyself, @MsLsober, @Oceania, who am I missing? I hope you get better very soon and have a good nurse to care for you?
Hi @mindfuljo and @justine, there’s a gang of us in chch who catch up every now and again. I’m over the hill in Lyttelton. Maybe we could go for coffee at the tannery and a movie or a mooch around the shops?
