glad to see you lot are stronger than me....Jacqui xxx

Jacqui, you have more than yourself to think about now. Don't drink, you'll feel so much better about it in the morning. Why don't you take a hot bath and then go to bed.

Be strong

January 27th, 2008, 01:32 PM
Listen to the side that says "don't be stupid..."

We're not stronger than you....that's The Beast trying to get you to think you are not strong enough to do this.....it's all trickery. The rotten bastard wants you to have "just one drink" because he knows there is no such thing as one drink. You take one, and The Beast will take over from there and your day will be ruined. And you will not feel good about it.

So, STOP RIGHT NOW...........take a breath and get yourself back in charge. The Beast has you thinking that taking a drink is an option.....that's all he wants to do....make it an option for you. Well, it's not a freakin' option. Take that off the table and take back the control.

You can do this.....this is just one of the thunderstorms you are flying through. Keep flying and you will pop out of the clouds and into the sunshine......just keep flying..

hang in there jacqui .. you have alot of friends here. chat and keep on posting

January 27th, 2008, 03:21 PM
Jacqui - my heart goes out to you, hun. I saw your other thread the other day, but couldn't think of any words of comfort. You seemed too scared to even think whether or not you were happy over this news. I guess you must be so stressed now at the thought of finally being able to tell hubby. You are certainly deserving of a good cry. Once you let it all out, you may feel a little better. I hope so.

Congrats on your AF days! You should be so proud of this amazing accomplishment. You know one drink will hurt, baby or not. So don't let your emotions make your choices for you right now. Stay strong. Just a while longer til hubby is home. You can do it.

May be you can get some rest before he comes in. You will obviously be up for a while once he arrives. And napping now will make the time pass faster. I know, I know...easier said than done. My prayers are with you, Jacqui.

Love, Me

How about taking out one of those fancy wine glasses, put INSTEAD of wine, fill it with juice, or sparkling soda, or even chocolate milk....
Then, can you find a mirror?

Everybody, I'd like to propose a toast. Let's make a TOAST to Jacqui, shall we? :cheering:

Jacqui, let's toast to your health.
Let's toast to the uncertainty of tomorrow.
Instead of being afraid of tomorrow, Let's EMBRACE IT.
The sun will rise, and the birds will sing.
You will be one day healthier... :groupluv:
Everything will turn out beautifully, dear Jacqui~ Your daughter is there. Your grand baby loves you.
Your husband obviously Loves you, too. :l

So, Deep breath. Let's Toast to Jacqui! :hug:
Much love,

January 27th, 2008, 03:34 PM

A hot bath is great. Feel how strong you are right now. You are winning. You are beating the beast

We are all here hugging you and holding your hand

Keep it up. You are winning.

January 27th, 2008, 03:50 PM
You are NOT doomed to failure. You are destined to win. Because you really really want to and you will. You can.

January 27th, 2008, 04:04 PM

January 27th, 2008, 05:23 PM
How you doin', Jacqui? You can do this...we are helping you. Just don't drink. You will feel so much better if you don't drink. So just don't do it.

And, by the way, it IS AL versus MWO....


Finding My Self
January 27th, 2008, 06:10 PM
...and Al is losing.......badly! MWO will win.

Hang in there Jaqui.....are you nearly in bed? Your little green name button light is still on....are you ok? You can do this....and tomorrow is another day...with freshness form some sleep...

Let us know how you're doing? We're still here for you.

Hi Jacqui

Hope you are ok. Sorry I was not online to chat. Would have loved to chat with you cause lordy knows I can't seem to get thru a day without chat. Bout to go there now.

Patty, I think your idea of pouring up something pretty - my favorite is sparkling water with lime - in a great glass and toasting to Jacqui is a great idea.

Hang in Jacqui. I don't feel strong but sure feel supported.

January 27th, 2008, 10:29 PM
Sweet dreams Jacqui. We will hear from a sober and happy Jacqui tomorrow. Sleep well.

January 28th, 2008, 03:14 AM

Jaqui, I'd love to take the credit, but YOU did it.... with our help.:heart: Much love,

Yea!!! You made it!! Isn't it amazing the difference a day makes! When we are down, we feel like the emotion is there forever...but it isn't. When we want to DRINK, we feel like that feeling won't go away either....but it DOES!!!

Hey sweetie, remember that not only are you absorbing this huge news, and not only are you early AF, you are also dealing with RAGING hormones!!! So, of course your emotions are all over the place. It will all settle down. Don't get down on yourself. You are doing absolutely amazing!!!

With love,


January 28th, 2008, 05:15 PM
Well Done, Jacqui...

So glad you made it. Just like everyone said...one ALWAYS becomes 2, 3, 4, 10!
