      Hi Sue. I went 4 months sober and pressed the fxxx it button 2 weeks ago! Like you I can't stop at just a few glasses, ends up 2 bottles. Then hangover so bad drink again. Had a week binge at Xmas but this one lasted 2 n half days. Had enough, no enjoyment, just misery and terrified family. After 4 days feeling crap and going cold turkey I'm now nearly 2 weeks sober again. I can't drink like normal people, it sucks but it's reality. Stay sober you and well done..

    Hi sue, bless you, I can truly sympathise xx

    But take heart...it does get easier in time...I have been sober for twelve years....after FOUR SECTIONS...TWO WEEKS FROM DEATHS...I NEVER EVER, ever, ever thought that I could do it....but I have, and looking back, it seems so strange how I was then....

    Nowadays, I have lost all tolerance ( thank god. ) ...TWO drinks, and I am asleep.....don't lose heart, you will get there in the end.XXX

    Much respect and good wishes to you...Deirdre xxx

      Hi, maybe it's me?, if you've been sober for 12 years, how would you know it only takes 2 drinks to sleep? Maybe I'm confused here?
