    Happy new year all - first time here in for ever! But saw that you said it had taken me 7 months Nora - it took me nearly a year..... but I just have NO desire at all to drink now! I decided to have one about two weeks ago - took my Nal - poured my Guinness, drank about half of it and ditched the rest! That is it for me - I am finally finished with AL. Cannot believe it but I just do not want it .....in 2016 I had a total of two drinks more or less ....

    Hope that this year is a good one for you all,

    HUGS, Sun xx

    Sun, I am so happy for you. I am now 17 months, I must be one of those that it doesn't work for.

    Hi there ladies. Meggie don't give up. Maybe you need to think about some other strategies as well as the Nal. I am about your age and going through ghastly and unexpected life changes but being sober surely makes this easier. You have to want to give up though and that's easier said than done.
    Great to see that things are going well for you Sun. Let's see how we can support each other

    Thanks Nora for bumbing thread.

    Happy New Year, I hope....

    Sunny, great too hear your good news. I recently saw a post from DB somewhere. Any one hear from space, play, houtx, Waiting to exhale, or anyone I missed (sorry)!...

    Meg, if I memeber right ur a school teacher, & you & houtx had some good convo & support. Sorry meds aren't helping. But, as TT says don't give up!.. Plz...

    Spent a decade volunteering in public schools. Our teachers, are heroes!... Under, too much pressure & politics.

    Youngest daughter is engaged after 6.5 yrs of courtship. Lol That's an old word. They are looking for outdoor venues.

    Care to join us on word association game? Just to connect in a safe place & a little fun...

    Have my Nana's old kettle going, boiling the ham bone. Some good old bone broth, veggies. Tho, didn't make it to store this wk for usual post holiday items. When I shop, try and stock up a bit. Have the basics. There are advantages to aging, I know prob wrong word, but still... It's grand too not have to try & be perfect.

    Take Care

    I agree - it's wonderful not to have to feel perfect.

    Sunni - I'm so happy for you. Have you read "My Grandmother Told Me to Tell You She's Sorry"? I still early in but it's so good. I hate being interrupted by anyone/anything.

    Hi there Wildflowers and Nora - Nora, I could not get into the book that you are talking about. I DID love "A Man Called Ove" though by the same author!

    Wildflowers - I have not heard from any of them - I was in touch with a few for a while but not any more. How are you doing? I do not come here enough any more to do the word association game .... sorry. Used to do the other one about ending the thread though.
    and that was fun

    Hugs to all, Sun xx

    Hi Sunni,

    It can be easy to lose touch with people after time. Seasons change. Sometimes, even when we don't stay in touch, people are thought about & maybe remain in our hearts. I'm glad I was once a part of this thread. Doing OK. Happy to hear your doing well. Hopefully, your family is too.

    Re: New here and starting Topa and with a question

    Does anyone recall the name of the book about Topa please? A friend and I were talking and she wants to read about it but I cannot recall the name of it. Thanks!

    Re: New here and starting Topa and with a question

    @sunshinedaisies-I am not familiar with the book but if you would go to this website: www.theendofmyaddiction.org-someone there might be able to help you.
