Hey Mark I'm doing ok, one day at a time etc etc.I have stopped drinking which is a really good step forward for me and somewhat of a miracle. How about you? Looks like you've been a bit up and down.

So pleased to see this wee haven still going strong and it is a nice place to pop back into every now and again.

Well I'm giving up alcohol as of Today ,I finally have a motivating factor that I can really beleive in , Does Anyone have any experience or advice? I'm worried my S.I. will go through the roof. It did the last time I gave it up .

Laura2.0 01-06-2011 10:22 AM

*hugs mark* is there anything else to substitute drinking and SI? I know people who started to eat tons of sunflower seeds when they stopped smoking.

jonikd 01-06-2011 10:56 AM

thanks for the hugs and squishes.

I PMed you Mark, it certainly isn't a walk in the park but is a big step you should be proud of and with the right support you'll get there. I'm still getting there, but you know its going to take time so just hang in there and try to feel good about the fact that you're doing it. *gives standing ovation* it is awesome 'K?

*tosses some confetti* HipHipHooray! My SIL isn't living with me anymore! And I'm fully moved.

*rubs lotion on eczema breakout* it may not help but its better than scratching at it.

How is everyone else doing today?

P.S. I have no stupendous advice, Mark, but I know you can do it! Maybe substitute something for drinking? Like pamper yourself, or do something you like? Call or Skype someone?

Doikers 01-06-2011 08:13 PM

I have Been skyping and facebook messaging my friends and Fiance all day , I know some wonderful people

In between my recent slip up and this... I am not happy.

Anyway.... Love you guys :)

Laura2.0 02-06-2011 12:49 PM

*hugs all* wish I could make it better for all those that are struggling.

I'm going to try and keep dinner + meds down tonight. I'm so fvcking scared of the meds, because I always imagine meds (even pain killers) as millions of tiny germs (lack of a better word) floating around in my body that have a plan and their own will.
If I take it for a few weeks so it has an effect on me, will it get easier to take it?

Anarchymummy 02-06-2011 12:58 PM

*Hugs everyone* Thanks Misskitty(sorry don't know your real name) and Mark. I am a little better today,ended up ringing the smaritains at about 1am and cleared the air in my head a bit.I think I set myself of on a downward path when I got drunk last week (first time in about 3years) and I guess I should have known better.Alcohol is in eccess a form of self-harm and I react badly to being out of control but crave it.So so today....OCD ruling my head but thats better than suicidal...

dontwantyoutoknow 02-06-2011 01:32 PM

*hugs everyone*

I'm so depressed today. My 21st went as well as could be expected on Tuesday. I have a chest/throat thing, so am not feeling great physically. Mentally, I'm just so down and just don't have the strength to fight any more. I got a letter today saying that they've put me in the Silver band for council housing. I'm so scared of moving - I won't be safe on my own. :-(

Laura2.0 02-06-2011 05:08 PM

*hugs all*

Shattered1: sometimes I get physical sensations like my arms are starting to itch like crazy.

PoisonedApple 02-06-2011 06:17 PM

*cuddles Charlie* Of course you can come back! Your too Claire! *hugs*
*welcomes everyone new* I'm Crimson!
*huggles all around*

Sorry for not doing individuals but I can't think much past how bloody itchy I am right now. I did finally figure out why I was having an eczema outbreak though. I thought it was stress but it got worse with less stress so I looked at the only new thing I'd been using (my lotion) to see if it had anything to cause an allergic outbreak... One would not think cocoa butter with vitamin e would be bad right? Wrong! I am allergic to titanium. My new lotion has titanium dioxide in it. Who new they even put that in some lotions?! But I originally used more to help with the eczema so now I am splotchy and itchy all over rather than the smaller area I was itchy originally! And I am wearing a sweater in my toasty office because it looks awful and with Shingles going around lately I don't want to be sent home because they don't understand what my rash is. I feel like an itchy leper.
[/mini-rant-whinge moment]

K now that I got that out I can think a little more (less crowded in my head, ya know?) MJ, What housing are you in now and what is Silver band housing? (Sorry I know nothing of housing in Wales...)

You aren't a freak shattered, I get sensations and sometimes even see the damage I want to cause when it's bad...

Laura, it should get easier to take once you get accustomed to taking something, especially if it helps.

Louise 02-06-2011 06:38 PM

goes around and hugs everyone says hello - then goes and sits in the corner.

PoisonedApple 02-06-2011 06:50 PM

PoisonedApple 02-06-2011 07:16 PM

*huggles Mark*
Could you maybe drink some mint tea to help your tummy?

dontwantyoutoknow 02-06-2011 07:33 PM

Crimson, I don't know what Silver Band is either. I presume it's middle.

*hugs everyone*

Doikers 02-06-2011 07:54 PM

I've drunk Ginger tea Crimson , gingers supposed to be good I think.

shattered1 02-06-2011 08:00 PM

Laura2.0 02-06-2011 08:56 PM

*hugs Crimson* hope the itchyness is gone soon and with it the rash.

I kept it down tonight. Mostly, because M. knows that I didnt keep it in last night. she mentioned it today, after her husband asked me how many time I've taken it and I didn't really know what to say.
