      Feel so much better for it! It's shocking how much physical & mental change that's occurred in such a short space of time, going through some of my old photo's compared to more recent ones are like night and day, I was adamant at the time I didn't have jaundice because I couldn't see it in my eyes, but looking at the comparisons, I can definitely see a difference in skin tone, so probably wasn't far off, which is quite scary, all the physical symptoms were there but there was some kind of mental block

      Well done Essex Easterly, I was wondering how your detox was going.  I remember feeling exactly how you do when I went through my own residential detox stay.

      Whenever you feel the urge for a drink, remember how you feel right now.  How much healthier you look and feel and how much better mentally you are now.  That's how I deal with the cravings and thinking 'one drink won't hurt' 

      It's been 4 years at the end of this month since my inpatient detox.  If I can do it, you can too.  I hope you are still getting good support now you are home as that can help with long term recovery too.  Message me if you ever need to talk to someone that understands.

      Thanks snow raven! Well done on the 4 years that's amazing! I'm surrounded by support, from various whatsapp groups I've joined over the last few months (we also do zoom), staff here where I live, private counselling, online meetings with Essex ARC and also support groups with Futures in Mind, as well as family and friends, think I could struggle a bit when I get my own place in roughly 6 months time, but will get continued support from staff here with home visits, a bit nervous about it as I've never lived independently, but quite excited at the same time, it's the next step that's been a long time coming!  

       

  4. What station are you using? I'm between Benfleet & Hadleigh and it's 0.1c here, with similar temps shown from other local stations

      I was in residential for 10 days between 21st Sept & 1st Oct, all food was prepared for me and brought to my room 4 times a day, been home since the 1st and replicated their menu, been mostly eating baguettes with coleslaw, salad, ham, yoghurts, curries, weight gain shake, pasta, fruit,  got rid most of my old junk food lol. Not allowed BBQ's 😛 I go into community rehab Wednesday next week

      Thankyou everyone! Still dreading it but now only 2 days to go, got things in place to keep me occupied between detox and rehab so I don't relapse like last time, also having counselling for the day before I go in, been allowed where I live in supported living to set up my station and have already prepared the site, also have one of my old college lectures helping me out with setting it up due to my memory not being as it should be, I have my EEG booked for 4 days after detox, and for anyone interested, the website is www.benfleet-weather.co.uk 🙂

      Maybe think about getting a cooling pad, do you have vents on the underside of your laptop?

    3. lassie23

      lassie23

      no it is ventless

    4. Essex Easterly

      Essex Easterly

      There must be vents somewhere lol, maybe on the side? You can buy add on fans which extract the air that clip on the laptop bezel and are powered by USB
