      Greetings from Australia!

      Hello Friens,

      It's a great site and I am so glad that I found you. We are all in the same boat and it is reassuring.
      I went once along to AA for a couple month and found a loving community there. Hope to find here the same.
      I read in one of your community posting about a tea, recommended against crawings. It's called ROOIBOS Tea. It comes from South Africa. I tried it today and it realy works!!! Hope to hear from you,
      Agatha

      Greetings from Australia!

      Yes, I'm feeling really down and lonely at the moment. I'm in NY for work and been just working and working - with the vendor - and I am not getting any progress from them and they are treating me very badly. Id on't feel respected at all. And I am the customer! I am really fed up with my work at the moment.

      I have been going to gym most mornings, but last 2 have not, been too blue. I got the sups last weekend and been on them since, but have not been able to give up drink as that is my carrot to get through the day. And due to that - drink and then eating too much - I just keep on putting weight. I feel so fat and ugly at the moment, too.

      ...and to add to the list, my daughter - who lives in Scandinavia - forgot the mother's day, well, she normally does not remember my birthday etc., but I would have liked at least to be noticed with sms or something like that on mother's day...

      I think it is the alcohol that depresses me and work, too. I should be enjoying NY, but I am just sooo tired and blue. I cannot talk to anyone about work, neither about my alcohol problem. Thanks for listening. I am also feeling terrible writing this as I should be inspiring all on this site and making progress with my abstinence. But nothing.

      Otie

      Greetings from Australia!

      Thank You Betty!
      It really cheers me up if I get a reply. I have a sister in law who's name is also Betty. She is my favourite one.
      I am still learning how to use this site, so please forgive me if I make mistakes.
      Los of Love,
      Agatha

      Dear Otie,
      Thank you for writing back. I see your hurt and as a mother myself, this things really cut deep. Have you considered to write or sms your daughter and say that this is not done.Giving up drinking is really hard. I started to drink while severly depressed, used it as a self medication. I got hocked of course, and now my liver is in a shocking condition. Try ROOIBOS tea, it helped me today to stay away. Thinking of you, Lots of Love, Agatha

      Thanks Agatha,

      I've done my liver, too. Not yet cirrhosis, but soon if I do not stop.

      Dear Otie,

      I just read a wounderful essay in the Introduction & General Discussion section written by Louise (irishlady) titled: just like a swimming pool. Please read it, it is really inspirational!
      Tell me what you think.
      Lots of love,
      Agatha
