I'm gonna keep this short for the moment. I struggle with myself and I struggle with alcohol and somehow that has got confusedly intermixed. I find it confusing and I'm sure those around me do too.I have gone sober before, not even sure for how long for - January and February this year for starters. I gave up wine for a whole year about 6 yrs back, replaced it with vodka. I've rung help lines, addiction clinics, been to government programme counsellors, been to AA, been to a female support group, prescribed antabuse. I reckon I probably started trying to deal with my problem about 8yrs back, recognising I had one about 10 yrs ago.
I guess I am what you all highly functioning though nothing could be further from the truth. I have so much more to give. Oh and this is me "keeping it short" :)
Onto WK 4 – Something has lifted today. I’m starting to feel myself again – my good self that is. My head isnt doing weird stuff – its being sensible. I’m going to put it down to the alcohol being out of my system, and thanking me for it. I’m haulin’ my carb and sugar eating back to where it usually is. My rings are falling off my fingers but I darent try on my jeans lol. Funny – alcohol goes to my fingers – carbs to my waist. Happy and grateful to @mrs-d and evryone else on here for listening and supporting me since 21st July – lets hope the week continues in this positive vain. Good luck with your own endeavours this week 🙂
