I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Ok. Here’s my post. Not drinking and I’m aching. Everywhere. Doc says it’s a way brain perceives pain. Lucky me. I’m sober and I hurt. Can’t drink to numb. That’s ok. I don’t want to drink but it ain’t sunshine and roses all the time. Deal with that belle.

    • it’s not all sunshine and roses. some days suck rocks, agreed. it’s just better than drinking. when you’re further away from day 1, this will get easier. just keep going.

    • I have this too! I was starting to think I was going crazy.

      I haven’t had a drink in 13 days and my head aches so badly. Just constant, like a migraine. And feeling nauseous, you get that too?
      Paracetamol and Ibuprofen are part of my daily diet right now, but I won’t give in to it and have a drink. Whatever this feels like, I don’t want to have to go through it again so I’m seeing each day as one under the belt, one down, one less to go through again. I don’t know if that makes sense but I just feel like I need to keep going.
      Are you still sober?
      I hope your pains have eased now.

      I’m hoping to wean myself off the painkillers in the next couple of days. If I hear back from you I’ll let you know how it goes. Take care!

  • I am a 61 year old women, who hasnt drank for 14 days. My name is Roma and I’m really struggling. I haven’t drank most of my adult life. I began drinking about 10 or 12 years ago, only one night a week with friends. I would drink wine. Eventually that grew to two nights a week, then three, until it was every night. I stopped drinking two years ago for two years. Then I went to my homeland for a vacation, by myself and reconnected with family and pain. I hadn’t been hime in 17 years the last time I’d been home was to care for my Dad who was dying of liver cancer. Needless to say I started to drink again. Not every day, but it wasn’t long before I was back to obsessing about drinking, and how much wine I had in the house. It began to be a bottle a day then moved to one and a half bottles a day. I DON’T want to drink but I’m really struggling,l. My family can’t help me, not the kind of help I need. I despretly need someone to talk to. I don’t want to go to AA but I do want a sponsor or pen pal. I want to be real and honest and I know I’m a great listener so I am so capable of giving not just receiving. However for now I need someone who can “hear me, help me, guide me, answer my questions and support my recovery” even in the ugly hard days. Can you help?

  • Hilarious! I never even knew I could look at stuff like this (I wondered how you did this before…d’uh to me that I can just click that search engine thingy). Mine certainly are no where near as humorous as yours. I had one on mine that said “criticism of message in a bottle” and I was thinking “what? someone looking for dirt on me? Who is this person? Why would they…blah blah blah”…ha ha. Caught myself in full ego flight and then laughed at myself as soon as I caught it. Message in a Bottle is a film name, so I think someone was looking for that. How self-centered was I in thinking they were hunting me down? Who am I to hunt down? Oh dear…ha ha. Anyway, I think it’s pretty amazing how people find you here – I am amazed at how we all find each other…but regardless of the how, I am glad that we are all here. I know I am grateful to be here 🙂

  • This just prompted me to check mine out. Mostly the terms seem to be people actually looking for me but this is my favourite: just fucking universe

    Just fucking universe.

    Well, yes.

    I wonder what they were hoping to find? And how drunk they were…
