  • I'm booked in for 27th August 😬 and THANK YOU 😊
  • I got to add another chip to my collection which feels so GOOD. I did work hard for this chip so it makes it all the sweeter. I'm feeling good being off the drink. πŸ‘Œ
  • Ain't that the truth 😊 πŸ™Œ πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
  • I hope we haven't lost our friend @Xellercin I'm on my way home from work. I have a meeting with my councillor arranged for 6pm I can't wait to see her and talk to her ! She is so super helpful and reassuring.
  • @Sinisterbarbie1 thanks for taking the time to write all that info and you make a lot of great points. It's really appreciated. πŸ˜ŠπŸ€— Thanks for your support and words of wisdom and encouragement πŸ™

  • After some research orange juice has 0.5% alcohol content. Bread has 1.9% alcohol content and the human body naturally produces alcohol. So I'm actually taking in 0% alcohol content when I drink an alcohol free beer. How interesting. πŸ€”
  • Really, I didn't know that AA was even suspicious of beer battered chicken. That sounds anti-anything-alcohol-related. That doesn't sound like a realistic lifestyle for me. Some people in AA probably avoid wine gums. I suppose that's extreme views though. I'm looking for more balance, I will always eat white wine sauces in…
  • Thank you Ladies, for all your support 😁 Barbie, your post had me laughing! I needed that laugh so thanks 😊 🀣 πŸ˜‚
  • @SunnyDays930 there is nothing worse than when you break a streak or break a diet and feel that what you drank / ate wasn't worth it ! I like your attitude. Just keep on going no use dwelling on the slip. Just use it as a lesson and move on. 'Tongue feels like it's wearing a sweater' πŸ˜‚ never heard that before lol
  • I'm absolutely infuriated this morning. Guy in my office who attends AA asked me if I have stayed sober. I replied that yes I have. I said I have been drinking non alcohol beers and he turned round and said "well your not sober then. You still want the taste." I had to bite my tongue but I firmly stated that sobriety is an…
  • 'Watch a barrel race down the road.....' sounds like MY sex life. Haha πŸ˜‚ me, being the barrel. I'm just happy that someone HAS a sex life. We have work to do in that department shall we say. Then again I have been getting counselling, dealing with anxiety and taking meds. Doesn't exactly make me want to rip my clothes off…
  • https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jul/31/britain-unhealthy-drinkers-alcohol-industry Article about the drinking problem in the UK.
  • Thanks for your post @Sinisterbarbie1 I will think about what you said. I know that smaller changes can be better for you. X
  • Yeah @SunnyDays930 I'm sure the green tea will be fine for me. Whenever I have made this swap in the past I tend to only have 3 cups per day (just water in between) one cup in the morning, one cup at lunch and one more around 6pm. It doesn't seem to impact my sleep at all or rile anxiety symptoms in me. When I drink coffee…
  • Thanks for reminding me about that @Sinisterbarbie1 I did know that green tea was not caffeine free just that it's got much less than coffee. 8 ounce of coffee provides = 96 mg of caffeine 8 ounce of green tea provides = 29 mg of caffeine ^^I'm sure these are just estimates or maybe near enough to the real amounts (found…
  • Quitting caffeine tomorrow. I have been enjoying my coffees but I enjoy less anxiety symptoms, more. So back onto the green tea and water from tomorrow. I wasn't a huge fan of green tea at the start, but it's very good for your health, and studies show people who drink green tea, tend to live longer than those who don't.…
  • Another great article. Interesting read.
  • Thanks ! 😁😊
  • Hello there ! Been a while lol 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  • I wouldn't recommend the sparkling white Belle & Co. Its like sparkling grape juice. It's not offensive or anything but I prefer the Sparkling Rose Belle & Co as I thought it had a 'wine' taste. πŸ₯‚
  • I had an alcohol free cider. It was absolutely delicious πŸ˜‹ I will be honest. I felt tempted more than once this evening to have a wine. But my brother and OH were very supportive, they stuck to soft drinks. I realised I was preferring being sober and was glad I stayed dry. I suppose it's ingrained behaviour and it will…
  • I really enjoyed reading that, thanks for posting it 😊
  • Happy Saturday 😊 πŸ˜ƒ
  • Done some step 4 work with my sponsor tonight via video link. Wow. I am really getting a LOT from the programme. Doing the step work in conjunction with seeing a Councillor plus staying alcohol free, is helping me sort through my personal issues. It's helping me to understand myself as well. πŸ‘ŒπŸ™πŸ˜Š
  • Sending you positive vibes and support ✨️ I'm not going to be much help where food is concerned but I'm going to be needing help, myself, to sort out my food intake. If I come across things that are helpful, I will be sure to post them here. X
  • I agree. I have learnt a lot from reading @Xellercin posts. I hope you will continue to share and post in the thread πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ€ž
  • Apparently according to Google. Pink clouding is not always a one-time occurrence. Apparently it can come and go at various times during recovery. They say pink clouding can be challenging for your recovery, but these days everything is dangerous for you. I want me some more pink clouds πŸ˜†πŸ’•β˜οΈ
