    Hi Pauly! I, too, just saw this. I'm so proud of you for seeing what was really going on and for coming here to vent.. very well done. Building more sober muscles. I also keep the thought in mind, of how terrible it would be the next morning, wishing so desperately that I could take it back. With me, it then always turns into a binge because I can't face myself.
    Big hugs and stay close..

    The only thing i get to that stops me drinking is coming on here and saying i drank. i vaguely remember how great it was to drink and the feeling of not caring about anything in the world but i did that daily until i lost who i was and the world around me. Now i just dont want to drink, i hate al, i do get that urge but its a stupid though that is put in its place. We do what we do to not drink Pauly and as long as you have your tools in place and reach out for help when you need, you cant go wrong. Giving up smoking for me atm is like my not drinking, i have my support network that i am responsible for, i put my story in the work newsletter (cant get more accountable than that), im seeing a psychologist to deal with stress as i know that is my main reason to relapse and life is good. Its still hard but dolly steps each and every day and one day i wont want a smoke, i will hate it like i hate alcohol. But i miss it like i missed al. But i know i wont ever regret giving up at some stage.

I'd hate to drink then wish desperately to be sober again,one drink turns into days long benders that leave me absolutely shattered emotionally and physically,right now I'm just trying to rebuild who I am and not be scared to have fun and love life,it's actually alot harder than it should be for me,I avoid alot just to stay "safe" if that makes any sense,thanks for popping in Pav
    Hey Pauly! First of all - great job on pushing the AL thoughts aside and not giving in. I'm sure you've heard of HALT - things that can trigger drinking thoughts - Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. You seem to really have a grip on things this time tho' and it's really good to see that. And it's not bad to avoid things to stay safe - in fact it is recommended that we do that to avoid stressful situations. We do whatever WE need to do to get through and it looks like you are doing just that. Good for you!!!!
    For every 60 seconds that you are angry, you lose a minute of happiness.

    Re: Paulysville

    I miss mwo from back in the day it was hoppin and helpful for me and others,I wonder why it doesn't come up in Google searches? I am sad that the Steppers thread is done but I see some other ongoing threads dimming as well,seems it's all small talk about the weather, jobs,etc which is fine but it seems like more of a quick check in than any real in-depth conversation,we stopped Steppers for that exact reason it was becoming just chatter that didn't really have anything to it,I'm not bitching about mwo by any means,I still feel it has alot of helpful threads and the Newbies nest has still kept it's integrity and focus on recovery,I just wish more people could find this forum,I belong to a few others but it's just not the same,I feel most comfortable here,anyhoo just figured I'd get stuff off my mind and what better place than Paulysville haha

    I too wish MWO still came up on Google searches. It is stagnating without the flow of new people, and all in different stages of quitting.

    @Administrator, Do you know why MWO does not readily come up in searches? Can this be fixed?
