Self-Compassion: The Hardest Act Of All By Jojo Thomas

My now-boyfriend’s Tinder profile listed his height and said that he was ‘always kind’. I remember being struck by it, because it was such a human thing to write, and somehow such a non-chat-up line. It’s not something you see at the top of most people’s online dating profiles. Trust me, I’ve seen a lot of them.
Kindness is one of my top values. It’s one of those things that shine out of people, in their smile....Read more. Posted 16th July.



Looking for Dennis Part II: The Sober Rave By Zelie Silent

London is a big city, and it’s a pluralistic city, full of minority interest groups and varying lifestyle choices. Until recently I hadn’t heard of the concept of the morning rave, but when I got sober, several friends told me about it. I’ve been trying to find Dennis/Dionysus in my sober life as my hunch is that that’s the key to staying sober, allowing the naughty and ecstatic to stay part of things, but without the booze. Morninggloryville is not the....Read more. Posted 2nd July.



All The Little Acorns By Elizabeth S

About six weeks into my sobriety, I had a one-to-one with my keyworker. He could tell I was really happy about something. “You look very pleased about something today”, he said. “Well”, I paused dramatically. “I painted my own toenails.” Now, my keyworker was, and still is, a pretty cool guy – all rock star good looks and Kanye trainers, with an arsenal of war stories from his career as a drug worker, like the time he found the body of a guy who had died from an overdose and still had the....Read more.

5 Ways Gratitude Can Help Us Stay AF By Esther Nagle

Gratitude is something of a buzzword at the moment isn’t it? And with good reason! We are bombarded on a daily basis by messages of doom and gloom, and advertising pointing out all the things wrong with our lives upon which we need to buy things to improve.
We could be forgiven for thinking the world is a terrible place, and we are seriously flawed people.
But it isn’t, and we aren’t. We are just being told the negative stuff to such an extent that it becomes all we see.... Read more. Posted 16th July.



When ‘Healthy’ May Not Be Healthy By Chris Sandel

One of the most important ideas I try and stress with clients is the idea of context. What do I mean by this?
A phrase I regularly hear from people is “I’ve heard that x is healthy for me” where x can be a whole multitude of things like exercise, kale, green juices, a low carb diet. The list is almost endless for what people have heard or believe are healthy for them.
My common response to these statements is “well it depends”, which is normally followed by me asking them....Read more. Posted 16th July.

This coming clean stuff is like having your guts laid bare. My husband had not a clue of how much I was drinking; and it is awful to see him so horrified. I am scared about the weeks ahead; he has got my car keys to keep me safe from driving; but… Continue

Alcohol intolerance - possible effect of glandular fever?

Posted by harrisonfleur on July 26, 2016 at 18:32 3 Comments

Hello everyone...haven't posted on here for such a long time. Have been drinking occasionally I have to admit. It's very hard but I have certainly cut down...hoping this is the way forward instead of cold turkey but I'm just not sure.

At the start, I counted the benefits of living AF in terms of negatives: no hangovers; no blacking out on the sofa and waking at 1am with a dreadful crick in my neck; no staggering up to bed, a cursory attempt at brushing my teeth, falling into bed… Continue
