Course I remember I'm doing okay, anxious but I always have been.

Have always realised I can't do this on my own (but my other mind thought I could!), thinking I'm okay and all that lovely stuff

Hope you are keeping well!!

I fell off the wagon. Thousand times but eventually we get tired of the mental and physical trauma.

Then we are done with our drinking.

32 days.

Been to some Zoom aa meetings, thought I was getting something from them but not sure, haven't been to one in a bit. Use an app with a forum for people in recovery, that helps a lot.

Will try and get back in to meetings to see if they do indeed help (help me as opposed to anyone else as they definitely do help people)

Yeah I'm on the fence regarding AA Zoom. Haven't had the attention span of late and large meetings trigger my anxiety and paranoia. I have extreme levels of social anxiety and also anxiety due to my family and accomodation situation.

817 days for me today. I don't think about it anymore, my life is just so much easier without alcohol, I'm a lot calmer and much more content. I take better care of myself and others can see it.

Good luck to everyone here

For those of you who've reached that stage, how long is it before we stop having those 'Ah wouldn't it be lovely to have a pint now' moments ?
I lost that thought within a couple of days of reading 'This Naked Mind' by Annie Grace. She teaches us that alcohol does us no favours, there are no benefits to drinking. In my case, it was wine. The thought of drinking just one glass of wine turns my stomach.

I dont envy people that have given up during covid, what with the non stop talk of when the pubs will open and eveyrone and their mother pushing the 'will we ever get to have a pint again' agenda.

Its tough. Im through it but if I hadnt the time and effort put in i would probably struggle.

Keep going for all of you. Its a tough and non linear path but if it was easy everyone would be doing it!!
