hey all, came so close to falling off the wagon last night, havre had a few difficult days, no particular reason really just hit a low. It was so difficult to stop buying alcohol yesterday but I did it and survived
I'm not sleeping too great still, body clock all over the shop from the virus I had over christmas but at least being back at college and volunteering should help get me to kick my backside out of bed and hopefully get back into some sort of sensible routine
Good on you Loon. It's a case of remembering that surviving without the alcohol is an option here
I think that most of us are at the stage where our bodies and psyches are beginning to panic a bit. It could be why some are feeling low, sluggish and even something like hungover. Only a few days more and all that will pass and we'll start to feel physically and mentally fitter and more alert.
For me, the danger zone is then in a few months time, when my marathon training is over and I'm tempted to have 'just the one'. A few months later and I'm back to square one! The problem is, I do enjoy a nice glass of good red wine
I'm doing psychology gcse and maths refresher, start counselling concepts end of January and just started two microsoft sql server courses online at home
I like gthe body in panic bit I'm not crying off alcohol altogether, for me it's just to get through January at the least and then try and moderate my drinking after that. I've got a birthday party to go to on the 2nd February, I imagine it will be a spectacular climb down off the wagon
I think January is a tough time of year anyway, there's all the hype and go go go up until christmas then it's flat afterwards, people generally don't have any money there's nothing lined up to look forward to and the weathers just neither here nor there at the moment (or at least up until now) it's been quite an odd winter so far. wonder if that's part of the issue
well done everyone
LOL sounds like a plan
lol not sure what sort of state I'll be in at the party but I shall try to behave LOL
oooh that sounds good, I've often thought about doing something similar, I'd quite like to give talks etc as well. I want to go into CBT/life coaching, that's why I'm doing the psychology and counselling, and working at the domestic abuse charity as well. it's a fascinating subject. good luck with the book
well done FF evening Kev, I am definitely not in danger of not wanting to drink, I'm in danger of being aggressively possessive of my place at the bar
got through another dry weekend, yay! keep it up folks.
More off than on, especially at the weekend tbh, climbing back on for the weekdays tho' so we'll see how this week pans out!!!
