I'm with my mum at Christmas Eve. I don't as a rule drink at my mums, whether in the pub or home.
I'm back to 10 days to 2 weeks drinking now, even with Christams here. Even New Years Eve, I won't drink. I'm usually in bed by 20.00
There's too much too lose now, training and my boat and course.
I'm not training today, I don't even feel hung over, in the past when I'm like this I get drunk, until I need to rest up. My body and mind says think about the long term effects that I'm feeling now, not the booze of every day feeling.
This may sound strage, but I'm glad your AA is getting busy. In the respect that more and more people are reaslising they want to stop drinking, or cut down.
I will be at my group on Monday, and back to the Thursday group to, it just through me out with an early train, and it being so cold.
I'm glad you will be there for someone to, if needed EDI.
After this 6 months is up with On Trak. Im thinking of going to Smart Recovery, I'm not sure, but they insist of 6 months abstinence. Not sure yet though.
Thanks for the offer EDI, I will bear it in mind.
My watch came back bang on time yesterday. I'm mega pleaseed with it, still loads to learn with it though. I did a short walk from and back to the shops, had lovely fish and chips.
I've even figured out how to download on to my lap top wirelessly. And have got short cuts working again.
Hope everyone okay? Cinder's trigger2? We seem to be losing everyone ow er.
Thanks for that EDI, You confirm what my Living Life Without booze is starting to try and get through to us. Its nice to know that someone can confirm this, for example yourself.
I must admit doing some things is causing more anxiety than others. But I do know thoughts feelings only last some seconds or minutes, and I'm trying to work on the now, as you said.
I was tempted for a beer this morning, but worked through it, and went for my 1st 5 mile run. Although it was outside the HM finishing time, I'm still quite pleased, as I managed to knock another 18 minutes off the first mile time. Plus I found a new route for the extra mile, and guess what. Its as hilly if not a little more so than my original route, I can't win lol.
Well you deserve a break a break after reaching 103 PR, I'm well impressed.
Its early days yet with my training.
I didn't do any speed work today, me body felt a little tired, after putting 2 runs together, in first full week of training.
I'm hoping, if not icy roads, to attempt to run walk 5 miles at some point Monday.
I finally got to do a little of my seamanship, navigation homework today. Its first time I have really spent any time on it since start of course.
I think booze wise, I'm starting to get cravings, I'm on my 11th day with just 1 day off the beer. This morning I could have gone for a beer, I sat where I wait for bus, and just let it go pass. I felt a little sick, and butterflies in my stomach.This evening I have just had stomach cramps. Any want to swap places lol?
Ow by the way, trigger2 I have finally caught up with my washing, including bath mats. I'm now making headway on the rest of my flat, its not dirty just dam untidy. I've never really been able to stick any routine, I'm trying to now though, it helps staying off the beer.
Hope your all okay? Its nice to just read a post, even if your not training at the minute. I do worry about you all you know.
