Mark, I'd be real interested in hearing about "Rational Recovery" / the Beast principle, if you have the time and inclination to talk about it. From what I've heard about the AA, I don't think it would suit me either.


Thanks for your words, Shar and Allison. They really help. It surprises me every time I look at this board, and see how many people have responded to this thread. There's such a lot of great people here at PB. Amazing.

Anyway, I was good last night and I'm going to be good tonight. I'm going to make sure of this by going late-night shopping after work, with my daughter, so I have less time at home to sit around wanting a drink. Friday night, however, may be a different matter...!

I now have another problem to worry about. I've just been told that I am expected to go across to the States at Christmas this year - to the same place where I nearly died the Christmas before last. I am torn in two - half of me really wants to go, it's real exciting to get a trip to the States, and we're going to go to a party, and have time to do Christmas shopping there etc. The other half of me is so petrified, it never wants to step foot inside the States ever again, in case the same thing happens again. I think the time has come to get some psychiatric-type help. I shall have a word with my doctor over the next day or two and see what he suggests. I'd really like to go and see a hypnotherapist, as I have great belief in hypnosis. But I don't know of any good ones in the area I live in (London/Surrey, UK).

I'm starting to become addicted to Rice Krispies. I can't stop eating them. Not just during the "happy hour" either, but I'm now even taking a packet to work so I can have the odd bowl during the day. I think I must be going loopy on top of everything...

Lisa
