      Hi from Australia

      Hi from Australia, just found this site today and wow it?s great. This is the first time I have confessed my dirty little secret ?I am an alcoholic? cupboard drinker and hate myself for it. It really helps to see what you guys have written. When five o?clock comes around I start hanging out for a drink. One thing that really helps beat this is eating something like a salad roll, or mangoes and yoghurt. Its just after 5pm our time and tonight I am going to stay sober, mostly because I feel like sh*t from last nights episode and secondly because I want to stop hurting myself. All of us struggling with the booze demon must really learn to stop hurting ourselves. I did manage to stay sober once for 5 years it was such a relief to wake up not dehydrated, shaking and sweating. The best piece of advice for all of us is ?DON?T PICK UP THE FIRST DRINK and this is my plan for tonight. Definitely had enough of the shame of being a drunken woman. I hope I can kick this again as my drinking has hit very high level self destruction. :new:

      Hi from Australia

      Welcome Kanga!

      Dear Kanga,

      This place is terrific and you have come to the right spot.
      I too discovered it totally by accident having been an alcoholic for a number of years. You can view previous posts by clicking on Members List and then on the name, and so on.
      This web site has been very well set up and you will find many people like yourself.
      I hope you didn't have too hard a time sticking to your guns and good luck. Nobody ever said it would be easy.
      Real busy right now, but will update some of my threads when I get a chance.

      Take care and again welcome.
      Bashley

      Hi from Australia

      Thank you for your kind words

      Thank you for your kind words, I have been so desperately alone and really needing to talk to someone about my drinking. A.A didn?t work for me as the horror tales made me feel worse and I was too ashamed to speak at the meetings. As you are a fellow Aussie have you managed to try the herbs and CD?s?
      Cheers

      Hi from Australia

      Kanga.
      Wow. Your name really caught me by suprise...
      We had a very beloved member here, by that same name, that we lost last year. The first day of every month is dedicated to him as Kanga Day.

      I'm sure you'll hear & read about him. He was an amazing guy.:h Very much loved...



      I just wanted to welcome you. Your post made me hungry! Think I'll go make some popcorn.
      Looking forward to getting to know ya!
      Believe me I know the shame you speak of being a drunken woman.
      This is a great place to start making changes.
      You're not alone.

      Hi from Australia

      Hiya Kanga!!

      Good to see you here - well done on getting to the moment you know you need to do something about the old booze. There are lots of Aussies on here - and we sometimes might need interpreters but we are starting to get the old lingo across to our OS mates

      Anytime you need to talk someone will be here.

      Cheers

      Hi from Australia

      Herbs and CD's?

      Thank you for your kind words, I have been so desperately alone and really needing to talk to someone about my drinking. A.A didn?t work for me as the horror tales made me feel worse and I was too ashamed to speak at the meetings. Any of you fellow Aussie managed to try the herbs and CD?s?
      Cheers
