    Great song RHGB. Remember them on the Brits upsetting everyone with some political comment. Not heard it for years. Good times in 97. My drinking wasn't out of control! My girls were 2 and 5. 

    God my life was good and I really fxxxed it up, big style😢

    Alpologies re rehab discussion. You were very very right!! Enjoy your evening too..

      When I say I wasn't drinking I mean it was normal,half a bottle of wine 3 times a week. Before and after that was a lot worse.

    Oh RHGB, I had forgotten that one.  Quite a statement.

    I'm knocked down, at the mo.  Binged on gin, yesterday !  Smiled, then wept, during video.  Physical and emotional wreck, today.....🤒😢

    But I'll get up again.

    Tomorrow.

    P.S. Thanks for the memory. Enjoy your evening, too.

    A few  of us went a bit mental last night. If you believe in astrology something weird is going on. Atm. Google it. Plus added pressure of Easter when Xmas was only a few weeks ago(as far as I'm concerned!). Even my 16 year old is saying this. When we were 16 a year, months were an age. Right? Strange but true x

      Hi Paper fairy.  Someone once mentioned phases of the moon to me, with regard to reckless behaviour.  Think I'm just a bit mental, full stop.  I hope you are ok.  I am so wrecked !  Going through the NEVER DRINK AGAIN scenario.  Well, we've all heard that before.  I find it strange that I can drink over 20 Units of wine... fine, well you know.  With the gin... I feel so ill, today. " When will we ever learn, oh will we never learn"?

      Time is very quick, as you get older.  If you cannot work, days have little structure. Weeks and months pass, it is all much the same to me.

      Oh Paper fairy.  You will love this.  I looked back at your comment about astrology... I don't really believe it, but it is interesting.  Anyway... I thought about Googling it... Atm.   I wondered what that was, re astrology.  It has now dawned on me that you meant "At the moment".  This is me in a scarily sober state.  No hope. Don't know what to put in Google, now?

      P.S. Astrology might be a good starting point !

      Angel( I like that rather than the other)..its more positive. Anyway what did you read? I've said earlier in one of posts..drinking. I hate it and ruined my weekend. Re gin. I've been drunk on it at parents when nothing else to drink. Vodka too. I can only compare it to taking drugs. I was never a druggie( though sometimes I think if I was I'd be helped more with methadon !) and would be happier than fighting our demon.

      im so sad xx

      I'm going to bed. The only good thing about drinking is you sleep. So going to enjoy but tomorrow will be so sad x

      Yes, I think Angel is very positive...I wish I was.  So sad, Ike you, atm.

      We need to give our wings a good Spring flapping and rise above it all !

      Easier said than done.  I'm now getting a great visualisation of wings on my back...flapping.  Barking mad ?

      Chin...if not wings, up.  Keep on trying my "feathered" friend.

      Angel xx

      Hello Paper fairy,

      I hope you are coping today, Easter Sunday.  I am stuck in bed for another day.  'Can't cope at all.  Sad, sorry soul.  

      You said today would be so sad for you.  Is there a special reason for that?  Is it the "holiday" thing?

      I hope you are ok... fine, feathered friend.  We flappers need to look out for each other !

      Angel xx

      P.S. 'took Diazepam 4mg, last night and this morning.  'Can't face any alcohol. They don't mix, anyway.   Going druggie?
