Hope you're OK Craig, but aye good idea to lay off the booze if you can. Shout if there's owt we can help with. 👍

 

Just to echo what Gemmill said, everybody here will help in any way they can I'm sure. You have people checking on you which means they care, if you can, reach out to them is my advice.

 

You'll know all this but alcohol is a depressant and honestly should never be used when you're in that place, no way can it help. I'm coming to 4 months off it now and whilst I still have most the issues that put me there in the first place, at least I can function now at a high level again. Not saying you are anywhere near where I was in this regard but for a lot of people its ultimately a one way direction unfortunately. Anyway, take care.

Thanks mate.

 

Yeah it shocked me just how much I was knocking back, and in the knowledge I had to go to work the next day as well. Probably was a decent wake up call. I do have pretty decent awareness of when I'm starting to struggle and my first port of call is to withdraw - the last 48hrs I've basically done nothing and seen no-one and those reaching out are a source of irritation if that makes sense? 

 

The pandemic and 12 years of turgid Tory rule have definitely been contributing factors.

I'm not really a regular in general discussion so probably miss a lot of what's affecting the lives of the good folk of this messageboard, good and shit things happen to us all I suppose.

yesterday we said goodbye to the best friend either of us are ever likely to have. heading for thirteen and a half he'd been diagnosed with lymphoma about 3 months ago and we think he had a mini stroke about 4 weeks ago but amazingly pulled round to carry on being enthusiastic for walks, albeit at a slower pace.

last couple of days he started deteriorating and fuck knows its a devastating decision to have to make, but also the kind one.

ozzy was our first ever dog, we absolutely worshipped him and its been an honour and privilege to be his humans. a gaping hole in our lives and its fucking crushing.  :(

 

ozzy.....

All the best Craig, totally understand where you're coming from and why.

Cheers 👍 just keep the humour rolling in the place. Seriously, it doesn’t half help.

 

We can do that!

Best day of the year for me, been bliss, I love Thanksgiving. All the fucking yanks are off so my inbox isn't filled with irrelevant micro-management bullshit (I ignore it anyway but reading it disturbs my sense of tranquillity).
