    Day 170 🙂 for the last four days i’ve been painting the outside of my mother in laws house, working 12hours days as i’m Only on holiday for a week and I needed to try to finish before the rain arrived (today), it was only yesterday that the thought suddenly occurred to me that doing this much hard work would have warranted a beer or several at…[Read more]

    • Inspiring to hear that the desire doesnt exist for you anymore 🙂

    • Yes, so inspiring!!!! Great post

    • Fantastic – i also forgot how calming and relaxing a nice cup of tea is!

    • Yes, we really don’t need alcohol at all. Many never have consumed it, and never will. And they are happy. We reach a point where we understand that the general idea that alcohol improves or lives, or makes our lives happier or more fun, just isn’t true. Just the opposite, in fact. The stuff scares me now. I escaped a problem, that many have…[Read more]

    My favourite trick in those situations is to make myself a tonic with lime and mint and all the works except alcohol, and I keep my glass full so no one would think to offer me anything else! People often don’t even twig I’m not drinking! It’s a great way of not dealing with the whole subject if I’m not in the mood to talk about it but also pu…[Read more]

    Nice @jocord One year is definitely something to celebrate! I’m quietly counting too though i’ve Told my nearest and dearest the date that I will hit my one year mark but that’s still another 7months away 🙂 but like you it’s about living sober 🙂 I will reach those milestones but till then i’ll Walk the path in front of me 🙂

    Hey Bobby, I can tell that you’re in a rough place right now, trust me when I say we’ve all been there and we’ve all done things that we’ve regretted or needed forgiveness for. The place/situation you’re in is a horrible place to be BUT for many of us it was the low point that we needed to get to in order to see just how far we’d let addiction…[Read more]

    No ultrasound scan but doctors are convinced it’s not a hernia 🤗 although it certainly presents as one symtom wise, just no bulge? I’m going to see a specialist sports physio to see if they can shed some light on the matter.

    Day 150!! What a glorious day! I’ve been for an early morning walk with my dog already and soaked in the morning fresh air! I’ve definitely hit the phase of feeling 90% adapted to the sober life, I don’t even notice points in my day anymore that used to be triggers for me to drink. My main struggle at the moment is with an abdomen injury I gave…[Read more]

    • Sorry about your injury @Narley but wow Day 150 Yahoo for you.

    • Brilliant- congrats @narley!!! Stink about the oblique- definitely not a hernia? (Have you had an ultrasound scan ?)

      • No ultrasound scan but doctors are convinced it’s not a hernia 🤗 although it certainly presents as one symtom wise, just no bulge? I’m going to see a specialist sports physio to see if they can shed some light on the matter.

    • 150 is amazing!!!! oxox And that walk sounds divine. Way better than my 4am cold sweat, heart racing hangover-onsets.
      Mornings are my favorite time these days.

    • Congrats on 150 days! Simply wonderful!!!

    • Thank you thank you thank you!! Your post makes me so happy and optimistic (sans the injury part – I hope that gets better soon) I’m a third of the way to where you are and knowing that this only gets better inspires me. Enjoy a wonderful day 150!

    • You inspire me at 150 days-congrats! 90% adapted sounds awful good to me!

    @libertynow :/ I’m so sorry you have to go through something like this! Especially after getting to where you’ve gotten to and he can see that and yet chooses another way instead. BUT like you said, NO one can take that away for you!! And don’t you let him even for a second! I’m sending warmest thoughts and hoping your husband will make the cha…[Read more]

    I’m so glad you’re ok @timidwarrior! And even more glad that you’re straight back on the sober wagon. We all slip and fall but it’s what we do after that, that will be the true test. Keep going and take care of yourself ok?!
