Thank you. One day at a time. I went to an NA meeting and was impressed by how hard it is for so many addicts. I think I will keep going.
Hi Liz. I am new to this site and finding my feet but I will see if I can work out how to put up a tracker.
Thank you for your kind words.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Thank you and Sorry for the late reply.
Thanks for asking me in..I'm new to this system. I haven't been on this site, since trying to establish my own business and getting ill, been busy. Thanks for your nice words, unfortunately things got worse. I got very ill due to the stress of my BF and his sons issues..we are no longer speaking. I am taking one day at a time, trying to be on my own. I'm ok just want to be well..My heart issue (AFIB) has been so much better since I am not with him. He just didn't understand giving me stress over his son was not helping my illness..
I have been doing a lot of research and discover my bf is definitely Bipolar and Narcissist. Wow was it enlightening to discover that..its all made tons of sense now..
Just a quick note to say hi! I don't know what it is but everything seems to be working this time. One whole month. This would have been entering my 13th year of heavy drinking.. instead the 13th will be my first of the sober years. :-) My next milestone will be 90 days and hopefully one day I won't even worry about milestones, it will be just a healthy life:-). How are you? Love, Dagmar
:-):-):-) So many days and no empty bottles in my trash... I feel like I can go on like this for good. It will work out. I wasn't ready to give it up before, all those times I've tried to quit.. I'm ready now. I'm really looking forward my all women's meeting on Tuesday night. Last time there were all gentlemen in their 60s. It was nice though and they pointed out all the other groups for me. You're my inspiration. You made it for 16 years, raised your wonderful boy and going strong, I will too.
Lots of love to you and your family:-).
The effort and time and words you sent my way changed my life. I already know. It's fragile at this point but I know. 19 days without a drink, one closed meeting up my sleeve and information about more groups in my pocket. Today I felt like the person I used to be. I felt happy for all the right reasons. Liz, I'm gonna make it this time. I can't even believe it is happening... Breaking free from the mess.
I just wanted to thank you for not only your advice and help, but also for offering to pray for me. Prayer is a very powerful thing and I find great comfort in knowing that someone is praying for my healing. You're amazing!
Thanks a lot,
I really appreciate your support. I've been struggling for quite some time, it even became so bad that I couldn't sleep anymore because of those thoughts and memories I had. I started shaking and I drunk a lot of water in the hope I would become calm. ( it didn't help a lot ). I'm starting school tomorrow and I feel like I could break down every moment. I really don't have much energy left. I have to make a decision and quick other wise I could really become very sick of it.
Still writing this post and getting support of the community really helps me getting thru this. So thanks again
Thanks for your friend request and your amazingly helpful advice and comments about what turns out to be a non-problem for me. Compared to the more real and important issues other people deal with, I'm really lucky and should count my blessings instead of inventing problems that I guess don't exist. But without your words and the insight other women also provided, I wouldn't know this. Can't thank you enough. What a weight lifted from my shoulders. I feel energized and renewed!
Thank you, Liz. Congratulations to you. It's incredible what you've achieved.

Just a quick note to say hi! This is my first time using this site as a responder to a friends request. I don't recall exactly what I posted but I hope this website and new acquaintances can help me through these rough times.
Many thanks! I hope I'll receive answers, I'm really having a hard time figuring things out! Are you a moderator here?
Thank you. I don't even know where to start.
Just thought I'd drop a line. I've been very pensive lately, deep in thought! :)
Thank you for the note, and for all the helpful advice and kind words. That's wonderful that you were able to fight your addiction, for the sake of your son and your health. I know that's no easy feat. I hope you can keep it up and stay healthy for years to come. Thanks for the support and encouragement, for my mom and myself. Best to you:)
Well thankyou, At least you have been clean since 1999, My Husband cant seem to stay clean for more than a few months. I cannot help him anymore and I don't want to. I want a life not an existence. The problem is we have too much tied up financially and I'm worried his addictions will make him blow or destroy everything we've worked hard for.
Thank goodness I've totally protected our 3 children. He kept his drug use away from the home and where we live. I think with having money has allowed him to feed his habit more. I need advice from partners of drug users..Thanks again Michelle
I'm sorry to hear Your day was stressful - I hope You have a much better day today. I feel good that I may have given You a little lift - know that it was heartfelt and sincere !! I have much respect and admiration for You. It's my pleasure to 'know' You here !!

Just a quick note to say hi! Lots more great photos. They are really interesting. Hope you are doing OK. I am managing very well now without anti depressants. I may be in my 70s but I get out and about and life not too bad at all at the moment. Arthritis pretty painful, but hey, old age comes to us all. Really warm now in Englasnd so cheers me up to be in the sun.
