Oh gosh. Where do I begin ? Last week was SO good and I really felt as if I had turned a corner and then some. This week I feel as if I have taken about 6 steps back. I have gone from the past three weeks - being under 10 at the MOST for any one week - and under 6 or so for the other two - to ALREADY being at 10 drinks and it is only Tuesday! What the heck is going on ? Was I getting too complacent ? I have been looking forward to drinking every day this week - making sure I have taken my Nal - NO thoughts of having an AF day .......but also interestingly, have not had a Nal-Over (watch this space tomorrow - LOL). I am feeling most disgruntled. I really thought I was on my way - but this to me feels like a huge setback! I do not expect anyone to come up with any gems of wisdom - I just wanted to share 'cos I am feeling so put out with the way this week is going so far!

Have a great week all,

Hugs, Maggie x

hang in there Maggie. there are going to be a few bumps along the way, but remember the trend line on your consumption graph is still going in the right direction. can you identify any triggers for your drinking that you could potentially avoid? what were you doing or not doing last week that you're not doing or doing this week?

keep the faith!

Badger - I am not trying to sound like your mum- but why are you up at this time of night ? LOL !!! It must be 1.30 there ! But that aside - okay yes there is a lot going on for me this week - but I am trying to think if it is any worse than last week - and yes it is worse than last week - but I cannot use that as an excuse. Once upon a time I would have - but not now ! So I am not sure what is going on in my head - but I do know that I do not like it ! Last week felt so good with the feelings as to not wanting to drink - this week I WANT to drink. SIGH !!! Thanks for the reply .....at least I am stopping - have had four and although I have more and wouldn't mind another - I have stopped.

Hugs, Maggie x

is it worth taking some AB to get you back onto the AF path?

Hi Maggie,
Sorry to hear about what you feel like is a setback. I have been looking at your numbers and been following you and it seems like you are doing wonderful! Your numbers have dropped a ton since week one and it seems like you are doing amazing. It might just be this week. I don't have any wisdom to share, but just a nice reminder that you really are doing great and do not be too hard on yourself.
Be patient and I'm sure things will turn for the better :)

Thanks Carlie - but Badger is right - I thought when he said about taking some AB - to get me back on the right path - 'yes, in a day or two'. Not sure what is going on with me this week - apart from it being a roller coaster ride ! The thing is when I have already felt so good last week - this is really a bummer !!!

thanks - hugs, Maggie x
