    Yes from me too. I didn’t crave the drink. I didn’t want that feeling. Thats such a powerful revelation. I’m sorry you have been feeling raw today. It hurts and it sound like you are heading in the right direction with your toolbox and exercising your sober muscles. Hope your weekend will bring some happiness for you.

  • Yesterday was self directed day at Uni and going in is optional. I woke up so tired and just wanted to go back to sleep. I wake up a lot during the night but go back to sleep immediately. Even though I have my alarm on to be up by 6am my brain is being hypervigilent. I get a quick look at the time and think yay I have a couple of hours before i…[Read more]

    It sounds like you had a hard week going through withdrawal but you toughed it out and got through, with your kids needing you. Each week you are AF you will get stronger and able to do more with your kids. Your kids will reap the benefits. I’m giving you an air high 5.

    Nothing like to sober slumber at the end of the day. Its a lovely reward for saying no to the wine witch and telling her to eff off. Oh the purring cat just ramps it up doesn’t.

    Because I can. Real freedom in that. And you get to hang out with your son because you can. And have some lovely bonding time on a road trip together.

    I’m glad you’ve been able to talk it over and get some insight. Trust of others I think is one of the hardest challenges for many of us. You’ve made me aware that I have trust issues. Its made it for me very hard to connect with others while I watch people bonding all around me. So much shows up to be worked on when we go AF.

    You are sounding good. Go you. A new life is greeting you like the sun coming up over the horizon to start a new day.

    Hi @sober4real I can relate to your anxiety. I’m having it over my study and work load. I would bet my bottom dollar that you are someone who likes to achieves excellence in what ever you do and you go over and above the call of duty. I feel that the anxiety is a normal reaction to starting a new job. I hope I don’t sound like I am minimising. If…[Read more]

    • @truthangel thank you dearie! Yes, I do have high expectations of myself so thank you for that nice comment. It was in relation to trust. Spoke to a friend and realized it…..I have some work to do in that area because I’m not medicating things that upset me in the past. I have been using a lot of self care today. Hot bath after work, hot…[Read more]

      • @truthangel It is tough isn’t it? I didn’t exactly figure the whole thing out and I am happy to take my part in situations where I may have caused things to happen but some things aren’t my fault. I’m sorry you feel it too. Who’s bonding around you?

    Hi all on a colder day here with rain forecasted. I got home by 9 this morning. Very tired from the 7am starts and 1st week back at fashion school. So I’ve come home to go on here then get a nap. Going into the uni library for the afternoon to write and research. Need to rest and gently get used to the long hours. Worked from 3pm to 8 pm also lat…[Read more]

    • Sounds like you’ve got a full life going on there — and how great that you’re not trying to juggle booze into the equation. You are right that change is gradual, but it’s also incredibly positive. A great day to you too.

  • truthangel posted a new activity comment 1 day, 5 hours ago

    You’re getting through the worse having made it through your first week. Keep on keeping on as you will start to reap some little rewards to you mind, body and soul.

    Love to ski. Student budget doesn’t allow for it at present.

    Welcome back brave warriors.

  • truthangel posted a new activity comment 1 day, 5 hours ago

    Hope everything gets resolved. AF life will unleash those coping skills under stress and leave you with more energy. Go well and stick around. It takes guts to come back.

    Congratulations on your new job. It sounds ideal.
