The Sensible Sober Seth is Back

Thanks for the suspension - I was having a meltdown.

Ended up in A+E overnight (completley my fault) - where i had to stay to sober up before being assessed. Didnt help i was being an idiot and drinking whilst being way overdue my Depot Jab.

Went to an AA meeting today - and “touch wood” ive got my Clarity Back.
Been reading the posts still tho - So hope everyone is well.

Cheers. Heres starting at Day 1 again for my sobriety.

Thanks. I really am gonna be avoiding going out for a while (apart from AA) to avoid temptation. I can visit my lovely nieghbours inside the block if i get lonely and have a cuppa.

Glad to have you back on board, buddy :slight_smile:

Slip-ups happen, don’t beat yourself up. Try to learn from it, if you can.

Welcome back, from a gal in the struggle. It’s everywhere when you’re quitting.

Avoid sports shows and convenient stores. My town, they got an AA building right across from the bar. ha. Always thought that strange.

Thanks @Daze. My local AA is fortunatley only a 5 min walk to the local church - So i can avoid the pubs in town. Good job i never had my Daughter or the wife never found out. It would have seriously messed things up.

I don’t want to give you excuses, but you have major mental illness,

and your family should understand this.

Yeah Granted. But ive got to take responsibilty for my actions and own up when i drink excessively. As an alcoholic - i could wrongly use that as an excuse to drink.

they gave us hard candy in rehab, and I was soon addicted to bubble gum, but trying to quit smoking. A friend of mine said, better to lose a tooth than your lungs. probably right.
