  1. lol, at least you figured it out! For me, it took a four day stint at the psych hospital before I realized what it was doing to me. I ain't too smart sometimes But seriously, don't beat yourself up over it. You had the courage to come on here and admit it, that wasn't easy.
  2. Congrats, Rabbit37! My husband is leaving this Wednesday and won't be back until Saturday and I already feel the anxiety building. While Christmas has never been a big holiday for me, the fact that he's gone and I have no family even remotely close to where I live has me a bit down (read "trigger point"). I'll probably be posting a lot those days, just a fair warning! Dooga, I'm with Rabbit37 on this, a simple "no thanks" or "I don't drink" is fine but again, as Rabbit37, said when you're young it's a whole different story. I've also been wondering about this myself. I'm 14 days sobe

    Ahh... i see cooking is your number one interest! I have to say, I had the most fun cooking with this diet than ever before - and alot of the basic principles have stayed with me even now. I can't wait to see what you think! :)

  4. Thanks so much for your response about the diet, I tried to PM you but for some reason it didn't go through. Could you post a link to the diet on my comments? Thanks!

  5. nice to meet you - love your status message and corresponding profile pic haha

  6. Interesting you should mention that, I'm going through an out-patient program right now for alcohol and chemical dependancy. While I have been sober now for 12 days, I find I'm trading one addiction for another, namely, junk food and anything sugary. I'm really frustrated with this and wish I had your mindset instead. Just shows how addictive a person I really am, but hopefully by going to the out-patient program I can get some better coping skills so I don't just swap addictions.
  7. Don't be sorry for adding that, lol! That's fantastic, congrats!!! I know what a major accomplishment that is and you should be really proud of yourself.
  8. If rabbit37 reads this, I was just wondering how you're doing. Has your husband left on his trip yet? I hope you're doing OK.
  9. I'm 9 days sober and due to my husband's job, he is out of town for 3-4 days every week, although this week he is staying home to support me through the first part of my sobriety. I definitely feel for you about your husband leaving, but I like your idea of thinking through the ramifications. In another thread about AA Alternitives, S9 wrote "if I think about doing drugs I think it all the way through to the inevitable conclusion which if I'm lucky includes survival but with a huge mess to clean up. It's just not worth the inevitable consequences." I loved that quote and have been doing tha
  10. Interesting you say that, Shannie, I recently saw a British made documentary on the problems Britian has with binge drinking, especially the young people. It was part of what made me wake up and realize what I was doing. Do you have any insight as to why it is so prevelant in Britian? BTW, I love your coping skills and hope to one day be able to control myself like that. I think a person CAN get to that point, I'm just not there yet and think I'll do better just staying away from it altogether for now.
  11. Thanks so much for creating that thread, your post is so poignant. I'm sure it wasn't easy to do as it is never easy to wear your heart on your sleeve, but I'm sure its going to help a lot of people.
  12. I've printed out this post and made several copies to keep around the house and in my purse. Re-reading your post is going to be one of MY coping stratgies because I found it to be so inspiring and true. I haven't had a drink or self-medicated for eight days now and honestly, the thought of never doing it again is difficult and makes me sad. I wound up in the looney bin in large part because my drinking and Rx drug abuse exacerbated my mood swings and panic attacks; I've been out of the psych hospital for two days now, the experience was a nightmare and I never want to go back. Being so
  13. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the idea!!! Go for it and I will definitely back you up
  14. Wow, I thought it was just me! (that's why I love this board, we find we're not alone) I have this happen a lot too, and it's so rude and embarrassing. I have lived down south for 13 years now and I think you're right about cultural differences, small talk is almost an art form down south whereas up north it's a less-cordial-until-I-get-to-know-you attitude. Although, I must say the worst comment I have had was up in Cleveland, Ohio. I bought some crap food at a local grocery store and the cashier said in a very sarcastic tone "now THAT'S a healthy lunch". BTW she needed to loose some wei
