Re: Hello

If I was sick, since it's my son, I'd just have to get up and get on with it.....that's just the way my family works.

I'm trying to eat, and drink plenty of water. My concentration is pretty lousy too. When I 'decided to cut down' ov...

Re: Hello

I totall...

Hello

New here Think I have a problem. Others are telling me I don't, and 'can drink occasionally' but I know deep down that that's not going to work. Every night, I crave a drink. Sometimes, i can stick to one or two glasses, other times, it's a whole wine box. I've never been in trouble with the police,...
