Sobriety [Day 22 - Day 28]

Sobriety [Day 22 - Day 28]

Monday, glorious Monday. A cold one to wake up to too. Sadly the grass has not turned crisp and frosty white though. I always find that a beautiful sight to see when surrounding fields are just pure white - be it from frost or from snowfall - they always look picturesque.

I've been getting a bit bored recently with the current playlist on my mobile device (I can't walk down the town to and from my day programmes and/or meetings without some sort of music playing), so I spent a few moments rejigging what... [read more]

Sobriety [Day 15 - Day 21]

Sobriety [Day 15 - Day 21]

Following on from my previous blog post on here, you are aware that I finished my detox programme at 9am on Monday 22nd October. I will continue to document what I am doing from there on, as there seems to be interest in what I am doing. So here we go.

After leaving rehab at 9am on Monday morning, we scooted back home where I was able to have a quick shave (as my shaver had been confiscated upon my arrival, so I wasn't about to shave during my fortnight stay) and also drop... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 15

Well, the day cometh.

Woke up at 7am, had the morning meeting at 7:30am, followed by breakfast, then made sure everything was all packed up and forms were filled in. Had my medication for the morning, then sat around waiting.

I was sat in the living room area, then two of the others clocked a car on the drive, they looked out the window and one of them said "Ooo it's a nice piece of gash", I looked out the window and having clocked that it was The Mother, I exclaimed to this other that that... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 14

Jeez, my last full day already! These two weeks have flown by far too quickly.

Breakfast was really nice, scrambled eggs on toast (coated in Marmite), then we got ready for Church. Church was fun again. Got back and had dinner, which was beef and rice-n-peas, cauliflower and roasties. A different mixture of things, but it worked and was absolutely lovely.

The sun was shining, so after a heavy lunch, we had a nice chill in the garden. Relaxed until about 6pm then went out for a long walk down the seafront.

Passed 7 'triggers' with no... [read more]

Rehab Detox Day 13

Saturday, it is the weekend so not much in the way of groups now. I woke up pretty much as the alarm went off this morning, so was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 7am. Had the morning meeting, a few fags and coffees and breakfast.

After breakfast we headed to the Centre for the first of two groups. The first consisted of individually picking out a random piece of laminated paper with a word on it from an envelope and then explain what it means to/for us, then we repeated this another two times and when... [read more]
