    Re: International Army December 2020

    In the year 2000 I was working in IT doing business continuity planning for a big bank. I remember most of the folk there were massive drinkers and I was quite horrified. Although I loved a tipple and did go a bit overboard I didnt think I had a problem or didnt admit it anyway. Looking back I did. I remember getting pie eyed before a trip to Florida and Rich and I arrived with NOTHING to wear, we ended up having to buy everything. So yes I guess I did have a problem

    I love the fact I never have to dress up Molls. I sit here in my scruffs day in day out and am MUCH happier that way. I have celebrated with a pizza and ginger cake and ice cream Yummm
    Jaysus Starty --- scruffs IS dressed up to me -- I'm in my jammies -- PTL I have no in-laws -- all 6ft under - don't even have a family of my own -- well -- except my 'actual' own if you know what I mean... complete and utter lockdown here so nobody but myself and himself and the Mutt... this could be famous last words -- but I don't THINK we do fireworks much on NYE here -- needless to say it'll be like Sydney Opera House in half an hour now for saying that...

    The wonderful part of what's wrong with Joe is that both of us have lost our appetites -- completely -- so no cooking - no cleaning up -- no shopping -- and I'm guessing we'll both have LOST about a stone weight over christmas instead of adding it on!! So that's it -- here we are --- 2020 NEARLY GONE!!!!

    Tonight is the last night of 2020 - and there are some folks missing - both from this thread and others... as we are all addicts we know what can happen at times of big events... and if you are one who slipped up over Christmas -- this is the time to call a halt or at least come back to posting - it's a new year and everything can be spanking fresh and new including your life - your hopes - your aspirations

    Don't ever ever think that you cannot post here no matter WHAT your situation is.. I know I have come here in all circumstances in the past... just come back -- there IS care and understanding here

    and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all -- xxxxx
    As a serial relapser myself I wholeheartedly agree. Whatever has happened, it is not the end of the world, its just a thing to be resolved. I know, I have done it so many times since my big quit. The one thing I always said to Rich is he had to admit his problem to someone outside of the family. That is the very first step in healing. It worked and helped him and we all know that is the best thing to do

    Re: International Army December 2020

    Yes bye bye 2020. In many ways for us it has been good but for the collective, it has been a struggle so i will not be sorry to see it off. I always love the start of a new year with lots of hope for good things on the horizon.

    We have just gone into Tier 4 with 55000 new infections and 990 odd deaths today. So would be a good idea for the masses to stay in. I doubt they will though

    Jesus Starts - 900 deaths
    Are masks mandatory ? - I was watching something there on UK channel and she said 50% of people in a shop had no mask on - you'd be thrown out for that here in Ireland.
    I will not visit anyone & no-one will be allowed here.

    I have been berating MrS all day for all the 'socialising' he did & that is directly where all these new cases have come from. Bloody 'socialising' over the last week.

    People need to cop the f*ck on !!
    I am going to work tomorrow & if someone is not doing what they should anywhere, in or out of work, I intend to call them out on it. Like some mad ol' biddy .....
    It's just gotten too serious for messing about & trying to beat the system.

    Yeah so were we doing continuity planning for Payroll Starts. All that Y2000 fuss for nothing.
    I remember & this is ironic : both me & YS sitting together watching the sun come up.
    The whole neighbourhood were out and we went from house to house eating & drinking - ending in ours - great craic - but it ended up just two or three of us.
    Went to bed at 11am 1st January 2001 - great stamina in those days.
    In those days you just took your punishment the next day. My trouble started when I learned I could cure my hangover with another drink.

    Happy new year Bridgey and troopers.

    Made contact with the Fickle wan. She's alive. Hope to yap with her soon. I've a feeling we'll be graced with her brilliant fine presence again soon.

    Hey Jonesy. You're 6.30 a.m. up and at 'em the other day sounds like a rippa move forward. Have had a solid schedule/plan i've been happy with most of 2020, however i'm going to git up earlier on days off from now and use that pre dawn quiet time to me advantage. See how it goes for a couple of months trial.

    Happy 2021 everyone!

    'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'

    Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-
