I actually just watched it the other day! Still so good and still one of my favs!!! The original obvi :ok_hand::ok_hand: (the remake was horrid haha)


#67

Didn’t realise that it a been done again. Won’t be the same


#68

Def not the same! They tried to “Hollywood” it too much and it lost all its grit which was what complemented all the cheese so well :cheese::ok_hand::joy:

Hi Jennifer (@Pjennyx ) Just checking that you’re ok. You can always message me if you need to xx

Thanks bb :heart: I really appreciate that! I was doing some soul searching the other night as to why I binge drank and I’ve realized I was definitely an emotional drinker, specifically I would drink to avoid negative emotions, namely anger, stress and grief. Not that I was necessarily an angry or emotional drunk- I was good at hiding my emotions- but I noticed a pattern of that being when my blackout game was strongest. Being mindful of this I feel much more in control and know that now when I feel those rush of emotions I’m not necessarily inclined to reach for the bottle, although I’m sure the cravings will never fully dissipate. I can now remind myself that I find the same type of relief if you will from writing and working out! I think a big step to recovery is taking a real hard look at yourself, as scary as that can be, and coming to an understanding of the habits you’ve developed. I thought it was kinda a cool light bulb moment so just thought I’d share :slight_smile: it’s amazing what some sobreity and clarity can do! How are you doing girlie?? I’m also always here too :kissing_closed_eyes: xx

#76

I am getting there. The cravings have diminished, my headache is in abeyance though I developed an inability to get to sleep. Mentally and emotionally however I feel strong. So happy to hear you thriving and flourishing. I spent some of the money I saved on new clothes (which I badly need - never had much money to spare as I drank it!) which I am saving for day 50 :joy:.

Thank you for asking after me xx

Aw of course I often wonder how you’re doing with things! We’re in this together remember? Have you tried melatonin?? That really helped me with the sleep thing. I also try to go to bed around the same time and wake up around the same time so my body develops a steady sleep cycle. I do a bit of yoga or meditation before bed too which helps quiet my mind. I actually just read a meme that cracked me up about sleep I’ll post it below. I did the same thing, some online shopping and it was like Christmas when the packages arrived :joy::joy: it’s the little things in life! What’s happening on Day 50??

Just because it’s Day 50 :partying_face::tada::hugs:
I haven’t tried melatonin but I think I’ll look into it :sleeping:, I do have a routine but my body isn’t buying it at the moment!

Hola @Pjennyx - Happy 50 days :dancer:t2::dizzy:. I made us our own wee milestone :lock::heavy_check_mark:. How the devil have you been? I’ve just been keeping on, keeping on. I find weekends the trickiest but I know it’s just psychological and sometimes just the result of feeling tired. My headaches have stopped plus I am sleeping. Win:Win :grin: What have you been up to and how have you been? Xx
