I am getting feelings of doing something regrettable a little less over the past few days and i would like to thank the good people on this forum because even if the posts are not to me i can get a feeling that people here do care, i have managed to stay off the drink for a week now which is helping me feel better. I don't know how long it will last. I still get bad feelings flaring up but i need a distraction. Thankfully i have a few diy projects i'm working on but these wont last and i worry i may relapse again. Although i'm feeling a little better i have waves of fear as i think about the future and how i will cope because there is not much that i can be interested in to the point where i can forget my worries.
