Re: The pros and cons of (alcohol) self medicating

Hi Maisi,

I wanted to say that I agree with talking to your therapist about this. I must admit I'm in recovery from alcohol and shopping addictions. From experience the alcohol was a problem for me even though I wasn't drinking high units.

Re: this forum only works if we help each other

Hi Betterinrecovery!

I've got a cold but feeling better than my last post. I seemed to have stopped shopping so taking it easy at the moment watching films and cat sitting for my Mum.

Thank you lots for saying I have perseverance , it means a lot to hear that.
How are you?

Re: this forum only works if we help each other

Hello All, Sorry I have not kept up with this thread. I was having a difficult time with strong emotions and did a small amount of shopping ( I am working on being in recovery from shopping addiction).

Re: this forum only works if we help each other

Hi Maisi and Tofler,

I read your ideas about the newbies room with interest. I don't really have anything to add to the discussion but did think it was worth thinking about. I didn't really know what to do when I started ! But glad the forum is here.

Hi Maisi,

I read your post and thought you did very well with talking to your daughter. How are you now ? I will also look for your other post.

Re: this forum only works if we help each other

Hi Teamn, I read your post of 16 Aug and was glad that you were feeling better. No worries about reading my other posts - I must admit I post occasionally rather than all the time but think i'm getting the hang of forums. I fairly isolated so know what you mean about that. I hope you are still feeli...

Re: this forum only works if we help each other

Hi Teamn, I'm fairly new to this forum and to others but I agree it does only work if we help each other. I must admit when I joined here I joined a few other forums - maybe to address different problems, but also to try out different forums. Can't really say I've got the hang of them yet but I am e...

Re: can not take any more

Hi Moonshadow,

I agree with the last post. Also I wondered if there is anywhere you could go to meet other people, such as a mind drop-in or a support group for people recoverring from cancer.

Kind regards,
