    Re: Join the Army Against Alcohol-February 2018

    I was just remembering something there when you said you never really got pissed last time round starty - neither did I - drinking had become more of a chore than an enjoyment - didn't even really want to drink - it was weird - however I knew that memory would be dangerous for me ( didn't drink that much - didn't get pissed etc) so when relaying my quantities and frequency of drinking i over inflated them both to the doc - he queried me deeply about it ( prolly thought I'd be dead if I had that much) and we had a great laugh together afterwards - he said i was the only person he ever met who exaggerated upwards!!!!

    That did work for me tho - otherwise without ANY doubt I would have been heading down the ' I wasn't that bad' route 6 months down the road - also proved to myself that I wasn't looking for an out

I refuse to get sucked in anymore - yes they can have a (temporary) roof over their heads but beyond that?? Nope - and it WILL be sorted xxx

    Yes arsey just my kind of day!! Looking forward to it!
    That's one thing I don't have ........them camping upstairs. I'm not so much worried about the S&H just it seems so unfair that he just about turned cartwheels to keep that outlet open.........I suppose head office just sees till receipts. He'll get a good reduncancy pay out so he is chucking round ideas of starting up on his own...........we'll see. His GF is now fully qualified and on a blooming good salary so its not the money. Anyhoo it is what it is.
    Funnily enough I slept better last night than I have done in months.

    Arsey, an hour is more than enough. Its an oldie but a goodie..........arrive late...........leave early.

    Must go, crochet class awaits.

    Ha ha about you and your doc Oh I have no doubts how bad I was. Sneaky glass at 5am, then again at lunchtime. Just cos I dint get pissed didnt mean there was not a lot of mental and physical damage being done.

    d'ya know - I like to think my recovery is pretty good... I have worked hard on it --- BUT.... I (and again - I'm only talking about ME!!) find sometimes even the smallest incidental remark passed can just implant in my head.. and if I let it roll... I dunno I fear that it literally could be like a snowball.. I'll give you a 'for example' --- YONKS ago Joe and I were talking about folks dying and how we'd react in certain circumstances... can't remember how it came up but Joe said something (jokingly) about how he'd go on the piss if I died and he'd be oblivious or something.... I just said casually 'ah well I won't be doing that anyways' - and he looked at me nearly puzzled and said 'would you not?' - and it was a weird reaction I had to that.. it was like he'd given me 'permission' to drink or something...... now don't be worrying - I'm all over it... but IT WAS A BIT WEIRD --
    so yeah I think 'wording' can be very important... dunno if you get my drift...

    Half term is next weekend. Kids at our school get an extra 5 (yes, 5) days off due to the move into the new school. Us teacher-slaves gotta do the moving/unpacking ...
