    Well done young JC re. the choir...great lad!
    Can't believe YS done a month already...just tell himself not to be drinking around him or offering to buy him alcohol free beer...I'd have punched mine if he had done that. My SIL who still drinks 30 years later left rehab cos husband arrived in with 'the smell of drink on him'....clown!
    well ... MrS has been known to go to the pub & arrive home drunk. "I'm not changing my life for him"
    But it's a stupid mentality and he will NOT being doing it this time around.
    If he does - I'll set Mrs Munich over there on him. She'll kill him with one lash of her tongue.

    Having said that seeing him drunk - made me MORE inclined to stay sober. Blubbering mess !
    That's something I never get ..... I have told him lots of times how ridiculous he is when he drinks too much .....
    I think if someone said that to me in my day - I'd have been MORTO and would have taken it on board.
    I always made sure I was never drunk in front of anyone - especially someone sober

    Definitely it's different for men mentality I think.
    .would never argue for one second that I had a problem but Joe got really silly when drinking and regularly fell asleep ( unconscious??) In the chair...' ah God help him he's tired'....whereas if I did that !? Like you Benjy I tried to only drink around people who were also drinking so my excess would go unnoticed mainly...it was only at the end I tried hiding it and drinking alone. I hope he does make an effort..it's not the immediate day or occasion but it's a build up that can become resentment which leads to.....well we all know what that can lead to! I too would have been mortified if that had been said to me

    Morning all

    Re: November Army Thread

    Good morning everyone

    I would have been morto too. Now if I fall asleep in the chair after my dinner it is tiredness. Guess it depends on the mindset. If you are truly grateful to be alcohol free you are thankful that the drunk person is no longer you. If there are still doubts there then resentment comes into it. It is very early days for young Satz so I guess do everything you can to protect him.

    Just back from my walk and it was fresh to say the least. Glad to have it done. More poxy cleaning to be done. I turn into my mother at Christmas, the whole house has to get a once over. I have not the energy any more to do if all at once Xmas week so have been doing it last few weeks as I go along.

    Ah Rusters - feck the cleaning.
    Though I know i've heard myself say ( to myself) "I'll leave that till nearer Christmas"
    So the house will be a tip by Christmas week waiting to be done

    YS is taking up the offer of a place in Aiséirí Secondary treatment centre in Waterford for 24 weeks.
    So he's here now - looking & feeling well and going there on Monday. I think he needs it - he thinks he needs it - and counsellor thinks he needs it.

    Great to hear hes doing well and making the right decision. It'll be nice to have him for the few days, knowing hes off to a safe place. How does a secondary treatment centre work?

    Mr M kept drinking when I gave up, I know deep down he wanted to keep the party going. I just had to change my mindset, I didnt drink then despite him. He made some effort, but it didnt last long (but he drinks a lot less now, i finally got him running a few years back). Now, when he has a few drinks, I do a little dance in my head - absolutely 100%, the best decision I have made so far.

    Folks leaving the US tomorrow, but getting in here on Friday morning, so they are getting stung for 2 pcr tests now. My dad is not impressed - about $150 each!

    Same here Mers - he thought I could just "not drink at home - just drink when we go to pub"
    In other words drink like him.
    Sorry kiddo it ain't that simple .....
    Since lockdown he hardly drinks at all.
    The pub, I think, is really not the same anymore. Too organised now for a social butterfly who likes to work the room

    @IamMary
    It's a centre that they go live in for 6 months. Not as restrictive as the main house - but seems a great idea for those who need it.
    6 months down there will sort him and give him a taste of living a real life without alcohol.
    Will be like the Army - make a man of him
