    • Hi @willycroznz just wondering if you had a “sober” date in the weekend and if all went well ? take care x

  • Good Morning All,

    Who else out there has the fear they will suck at dating when they choose to go out etc?? Im quite worried i wont be my jokey funny self i was with drinking. Worried about being good with the other sex whilst sober .. thoughts? Any advice

    • OMG that would be my worst nightmare @willycroznz (I sure that doesn’t help lol) be yourself it might take time to relax but at least this person will see the “real” you. Believe in yourself and remember to BREATHE. Take care and happy sober Thursday x

      • It is really different, although I returned to my old friend when drinking times over, so not really dating, but if they do not like who you are when real, then do you want to spend precious time with them?

    • I think you’re more likely to find the actually right person for you rather than than compatible-while-pissed one. Good luck!!!

    • I was just reading how Dai Henwood reckons he’s funnier without booze @willycroznz: https://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/108842564/7-days-comedian-dai-henwoods-booze-ban-is-no-joke
      It’s a natural enough worry when we’re still getting used to the ‘sober us’ ourselves I reckon. But perhaps just a worry. Conversely, wouldn’t it be cool if someone liked you just as you are? πŸ™‚ And why wouldn’t they.

    • It’s fine @willycroznz because you are real and raw and genuine and not relying on alcohol to bring out the humour that is there anyway. Don’t be like me and wait 4 years before trying to meet someone. Just give it a shot, and KNOW who you are, and that another person is damned lucky to have the chance to connect with you. Being a bit more of a shy version of yourself is okay, your confidence will grow. Go get ’em cowboy!! xo

    Here for you edith ! Good on you for starting again! remember many things take starting and failing before you complete πŸ™‚

  • Morning Team!

    Just wanted to share 64 mornings ago i woke up after drinking till the earlier hours of the morning as i was still trying to get over the fact that my house had been raided by the police due to my drug use issues that I had at the time and that i was being evicted and would have to move back down to my parents house 3 hours away.. This has all turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I am now fully clean and sober and exercising 6 days a week
    I have not felt this good mentally or physically in a long long time or even ever? The big things that have helped me were one being away from the bad influences and people who wouldn’t respect my decision to not party etc when I had tried to give up drinking and drugs in the past. I am now enrolled in Law School and looking forward to the future again and I am only getting started with what I can achieve .. I gave up smokes, drugs, alcohol on the same day. It is possible TEAM Put your mind to and you can do it πŸ™‚ Day by day build your wall to sobriety with each brick one at a time until that wall is so high and long you can never hope back over to the dark side! lol hopes this message helps someone who’s really down to understand no matter what is happening in your life if you decide to make the changes and stick to positive thoughts and processes you will get positive outcomes :))))

    Welcome Katt220 hope this site helps you πŸ™‚ All the members are very nice and supportive i have found

  • @jamieann hi Jamie, i recommend some exercise that gets the heart racing and a sweat going , i felt some what drained away the toxins and the release of the feel good endorfins was what helped so much in the early stages 👍🏻

    • Agree. I will try that approach too i reckon… (she says while eating maccas breakfast). Small steps for me but steps i will take! Maybe a walk this evening!
