    Hi Paper fairy. glad you are back again.It is so hard especially when we are stressed.The Love Affair with Alcohol seems never ending. 2 weeks ago I had ultimatum Divorce or Alchohol,as I was feeling so ill after 3 week binge I decided to not drink! Fast forward 14 days-the Demon is starting to get back back into my head-I am bored with keeping myself safe-staying in all the time plus putting 8 pounds of weight on because of substituting one addiction for another also loads of shopping on I pad on stuff I dont't need spent a fortune!! Am going out this afternoon for walk.Hope I don't end up buying a Bottle or going into Pub-best not to take any money with me.Good Luck with your mission.XX

      HI Susan. You are trying to be strong under difficult circumstances. I choose no drinking nearly 3 yrs ago since also in DEEP trouble like you and too much too lose. Managed not to drink and YES you get bored but treat yourself is my normal advice but it seems that have been doing that already!! buying too much stuff but at least it stops you from drinking.keep us posted pls...Robin

      I know it is good to have people understand...because I only have a couple of people left...that understand.

      And when that happens....when we are deserted by people we thought were our friends...and even deserted by family...it is an awful feeling that we blame ourselves for....but it ISNT our fault that we have been CURSED with this desire to drink...and once we put it into our bodies...most of the people that are problem drinkers or alcohol dependent...find it really HARD to stop.  Thank God for boards like this.

      Hi paper fairy

      be proud of yourself that you have come back to this site and admitted what we all (well I did)  thought . It's very easy to say look at me aren't I doing well, no relapses. However it's much harder to admit what's happened and how you are feeling. Don't let falling out with your daughter become anreason to continue to drink. My kids used to either shout at me, phone their dad and tell  him they thought I'd been drinking, or find my bottle and hide it. I was talking about their childhood to them. I'd convince them

      Sorry reply went off before I'd finished!

      everything would be alright. I'd been full of guilt over their children, but all three of them said the good times outweighed the bad.

      i don't want to state the obvious, but would your GP be prepared to let you have some lorazepam which I know would help, even just a weeks,s supply,
