    Hi @prudence πŸ™‚ Wow you have a whole lot of sober friends now. Blimmin amazing really how ditching the piss has enriched your life in ways I bet you never imagined. I always think of you and aspire to be as sociable lol. Having a hard time with that lately but am working on it. @Morgan bugger I missed you. It would have been nice to see you xx

    • I will be down again – hopefully, however a full time job now – no swanning off whenever I feel like it. Still in shock

    • Hiya @seedynomore and I hope things are starting to look up a bit more for you. I often think of you and hope you are ok xxx

    Aww Lars so sorry to read about your cat. I havent logged on here for quite some time so it is so nice to see a familiar name. What’s up @Lars ? You have been sober for so many months in succession and you know you have it in you to just stop! I think, for me it’s just been a matter of saying NO I cant drink because it changes who I am and I want…[Read more]

    • So good to see you here @seedynomore!
      My last day one was excruciating, and my guy said “one day you’ll get tired of feeling like this.” And my response was, “oh, I’m SO tired of this. It’s a matter of realizing what it will do in the morning the night before.” And I know, but I revert to the casual, non-thinking me which is not ME. I’ve…[Read more]

    Yay good for you @JM Family or not! You deserve to enjoy your Easter and relax. That’s what it’s all about and I myself won’t be spending Easter with any if my family for that very reason(not that I have very many family members πŸ™‚ I love that I can come back here to living sober and see my familiar buddies. Hi @JM and you to @Ro πŸ™‚ xx

    Oh wow @tipsytoegal I see this freak has caused so much grief for you and I’m so sorry it’s been so rough for you lately. I have to say though, that you are nearly out the other side, still sane and stronger than ever. You should be so proud of yourself. I am in awe of your strength lady xx

    Oh I’m sorry @safeandsound Yes highly likely he does have IBS as a result of drinking. Is hubby up front with his doctor about his drinking? Because sounds to me like hubby needs a wee bit of a scare to kickstart sobriety. Hugs and everything will be ok You will ne able to be there for him as a super strong sober person xx

    @Morgan No major changes in my life yet. Still chugging away in my job which has had its challenges due to lack if staff but I will not do a big moan about it because I could leave but havent. As for a relationship..No I havnt even been on any dates lol. So hard to meet people when you dont go out much. All in good time though. I dont see myself…[Read more]

    Hi @enzedgirl yes it looks like you had such a nice time at the meet up. I could totally envision the banter and warm fuzzies. Hopefully next time I will go xx

  • seedynomore posted a new activity comment 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Hey @Lars I’m so glad you are still here πŸ™‚ Keep chugging on because you always get back on your feet. I wish I could find things that excite me but having a hard time of that lately. Thanks for your reply lars xx

  • Morning team. I dont post here much anymore but I think its probably because I rarely think about drinking anymore…or didnt until recently. The last few days I’ve been thinking how good it would feel to have a glass or 2 of wine but I have been fast forwarding to the aftermath and it always pulls me back in line. In my fantasies I am sipping on…[Read more]

    • Nice to see you @seedynomore! I recently went back to drinking and wish I would have called on my supports a bit more, or at all. I felt similarly as you described, and let me tell you from the other side that it is not worth it. You know that, though. Keep checking in. Buy yourself nice things, and take good care. Do things that excite you! πŸ˜‰

      • Hey @Lars I’m so glad you are still here πŸ™‚ Keep chugging on because you always get back on your feet. I wish I could find things that excite me but having a hard time of that lately. Thanks for your reply lars xx

      • Hi @seedynomore! Let me be a reminder too cos I”m a bit allover the goat track as I got very comfortable with my sobriety, and BAM, so easily it can just go, and man it’s tricky to hold that traction again! I didn’t go to a birthday dinner the other night cos I had very little confidence in my ability to not drink (which = being grounded enough to…[Read more]

    • So nice to see you @seedynomore ❤️

      Glad to hear you feel solid AF

      we missed you at the recent get together, everyone wished you were there xxx

    • So good you remember the effects so clearly. I fear slipping back to my pretty moderate levels if not being reminded here (and by the friend I live with) that addiction progresses – I forget I was on a very slippery slope.
      Lovely to see you here again. Are you feeling better than the last times here? Any relationship progression? On all fronts -…[Read more]

    • Hi @seedynomore! Good to see you here. I love that, we all have unconditional support here. xo

    • Great to see you and hear your thoughts @seedynomore. I have also been having those thoughts – you know – since I’m strong enough to go a year and a half without alcohol surely I’m strong enough to have just 1 or 2 glasses of wine. But thanks to people like @Lars I’m reminded that I cannot handle it. You both are so strong and inspirational. Sendi…[Read more]

    • Yep. Never forget the bad times. Not to beat ourselves up, but to answer those addictive thoughts. Good to see you again Seedynomore.

    • *waves* πŸ™‚

    • Nearly 3 years….you legend! And thanks for stopping by. You’ll always be one of the old familiar faces on here and with so many new people signing up it keeps me coming back to hear updates from people like you. oxoxox And what a good reminder to not romanticize drinking. It still is just as bad as it was back then. Always will be. oxoxox

    • Glad to hear about your 3 years and not thinking much about alcohol. sounds great for you. so glad to hear from you. oh gosh darn, that beating in the chest walking up to the bed late at night after you fell asleep in front of the tv and were too drunk to get up until you feel horrible, dry mouth, crick in neck and then the heart — irregular…[Read more]

    Hey you congrats on that phenomenal number. Jeez where does the time go. Go you xx

  • seedynomore posted a new activity comment 2 months, 1 week ago

    My 26 year old daughter watched it too. I wish I had been able to prevent her from watching it but I was too late. I do think tho it has woken her up to a reality that was needed though because her understanding of the Muslim community was very muddled and for her there is no life outside of her own. This is a great opportunity to arm our kids…[Read more]

    Hi @Tim I was feeling extra sensitive yesterday too. Unfortunately my daughter watched the live stream footage of the attack before it was removed and had sent the link to me. I chose not to watch it and am so glad I didnt because it affected my daughter deeply. So glad you woke up sober and feeling better this morning. Sometimes looking after…[Read more]

    Oh so sorry to hear @ladyHawke Your yoga retreat day sounds fabulous though. Good for you xx

    • It’s all good @seedynomore – i instigated the separation. just replied to lynnelowe that it’s actually amazing when you stop drinking you can actually fully see what’s going on πŸ™‚ The yoga retreat was awesome.

      How’s things with you Seedy? Got a new man in your life? Often think of you and hope you are coping okay. Hugs xoxo

  • Hello hello! Thought it was about time I posted an update. I don’t really have much to say but just that I miss you guys and wanted to feel like part of the crew again. I’m not sure why I stopped coming here but I do know I am still forever grateful for you all. Still sober but I have no idea how many days. I guess I just don’t think about…[Read more]
