    Well done I am rooting for you and in the same boat. It is daunting but I try and just keep it in the day otherwise I panic. Forever is a long time to contemplate all those social events etc

    good luck, Lynne x

    Hi sue

    have you thought of antabuse. That pill probably saved my life and my marriage. Because I couldn't drink it took away the obsessing. The shall I, shan't i? Because my husband gave it to me every morning it also stopped him giving me the evil eye every day when he came home from work trying to suss out whether I'd been drinking.

      Yes I have, right now I am controling my cravings, I honestly ave little desire for alcohol, when it hits I have a hot bat or walk on the treadmill.

      If that doesnt help I have something sweet. If they do get worse then I will talk to the doctor.

      Yesterday I went to see about counselling and was accepted smile

      although they couldnt book my first apt till the 11th of march

      but very happy about the out come. The one I did get to see told me that not many can make it through a month on their own, so I was pround of myself but at the same time very sad. Thinking of every one who has to wait for so long to be able to get help
