      Gilf sorry about the vile message. Name and shame is always a good option i think. If you want to send horrible messages then you surely cant be ashamed of said opinion expressed. I personally am not better than any person on here, i still struggle sometimes but the struggles have become less and less as time goes on. Those early days are the pits and grab all the support you can. Feed off your anger to become more determined not to drink to show the arsehole they are wrong, not that you need to.

      Stay here at MWO and stay strong! Words...Just this week, I witnessed how bad words can bite someone in the ass. It ain't pretty, and I do believe in karma. So, just shake it off and refocus on yourself. 99 percent of MWO'ers are awesome. Maybe 99.9 percent! We are here for you.
      Sometimes what you're most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.

      That is just too bad. I would like to defend whoever wrote you and say that they were just trying to "help" you but at the same time cannot understand how ANY of us can judge another.

      If that's the case, I'm the worst hypocrite ever with my name of "overit" that I picked 3 years ago and as of 16 or so days ago, was still drinking.

      Sometimes we do very stupid things when we think we can be kept anonymous.

      I'm sorry your day started out that way. Just get through this day.

      I didn’t have a very good day yesterday, and I’m not enjoying this one either…..

      This is going to be “tough love” as tough as they come, but it’s honest. I didn’t send the pm, but it very well could have been me! I think I need to take a break from MWO for a while, maybe I’m just taking things to literal and personal.

      You see, I suffered from a pornography addiction as well as alcohol addiction! They went hand in hand to me, you drink alone and watch porn, that was what I’d become. Through the grace of God I’ve overcome both my addictions and become a better person for it! But Google “Gilf”, I don’t have to, I know what it represents. Do I need a sexy, cheeky assed leprechaun named “Gilf” each and every day to remind me of the guy I used to be, I think not! Maybe some growing up is in order for some grown ups. For the life of me I can’t think of one good reason to have a name and avatar like that, it sure wasn’t considerate of people who face multiple addictions! I try and support everyone, and all of their addictions, but it’s hard to take serious a user name and avatar like that! I am offended by it.

      I hope this gives you all some food for thought before you choose a user name or an avatar, just stop and think for a second who you might be affecting before you pick it……

      Merry Christmas all and best of luck to everyone…..
      Quitting and staying quit isn’t easy, it’s learning a whole new way of thinking. It’s accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
      Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
      Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

      Cowboy I am finding it difficult to take your post seriously.
      Are you telling me that the image of leprechaun will cause you to relapse back to watching porn ?

      Ah come on now -
      Does that mean I can never see an image of a glass of wine in my daily life on tv or on the internet for fear of relapsing ?
      Being sober to me means LIVING with alcohol around but knowing the consequences if I was to take it again.
      Same with cigarettes and a myriad of other addictions.

      You want to leave MWO - that is your decision - you will be missed
      - but do not blame Gilf because she chose a name & avatar that you don't approve of.
      Benji ....
      Doing it my way

      .... the joy of being sober never gets old !!

      What she ^ said.

      Recovering addicts are sensitive, often because we are subconsciously looking for justification to run back to the addiction.

      We have used our addictions, often for decades, to prevent ourselves feeling and without our substance/behaviour of choice we are raw and naked.

      Truth is that the only way through it and back to dealing with painful emotions.....is to deal with painful emotions.



      ABcowboy I have left MWO on 2 occasions because I felt attacked and unwanted, because I was an outspoken atheist but also because I felt the need to challenge the belief of others.

      What I actually needed to do is grow the fuck up! This is an open forum and people will say, be, believe, AND have avatars we don't like.

      Don't be me and cut off your nose to spite your face.

      There are people here who benefit from your help, but let me assure you that if you leave they WILL move on and get over your leaving.

      People are resilient and can recover from anything!



      Gilf ... this is what I was sent about a week after I returned

      image.jpg

      Like the member who messaged you, this person is an angry, sad person who I now can actually feel compassion for (but I still sent them a private reply saying "go fuck yourself"... hell I am only human !!! )

      I also had to google gilf.
      I am not actually a bird and I don't live in a tree - so avatars are not real. And I certainly hope Kuya doesn't look like the avatars she has used on MWO!
