Hi, im Sarah, 36 from Manchester. I had a bad experience from Alcohol two weeks ago and have made the decision to be teetotal. It’s made me reflect back on all of the times I’ve had a drink, done and said stupid things and woke up the next morning feeling utter regret. I don’t want to live like that anymore

Some of my friends are supportive but others are mocking and saying yeah right this won’t last. I’m absolutely determined I won’t be drinking again, I really don’t like myself or my behaviour when I drink.

    Helle @Sazzle1981 and welcome to our boards! I admire your decision to take control of your drinking, but ignore the ones who are unsupportive. What do they know, anyway? The friends who remain supportive, they are the ones who matter. :thumb:

    Everyone here is very supportive and caring. I hope you stay to enjoy your time with us.

    Wishing you all the best and have a good week!

    Welcome to the community, Sazzle! :wave: Just a heads up that we're primarily made up of 13-25s (unlike somewhere like Elefriends, who are geared more towards adults), and so a lot of the information you see around here might not be too relevant for your age group. You're welcome to stay and hang out of course, but just so you're aware.

    I'm Mike, by the way - one of the moderators you'll see drifting through every now and again. :)

    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Hi Sazzle,

    Welcome! Echoing what @Mirabelle said - those who'll support you are the people that matter. The ones that try and drag you down are simply the motivation, so that when you've succeeded, you know who you've defeated, and who's looking at your success with envy!!x

    Much love <3

    Welcome Sazzle!! :wave:

    you seem very determinate about your decision and I admire you for that!! that's great that you have decided to join this community and I'm sure you'll find a free space full of supportive people and I hope that we all will make you feel supported.
    As already been said, just focus on those who believe in you, as the are the ones who matter!!

    Welcome 👋🏻👋🏻
    Even just lots of determination and belief in yourself goes v far, so I believe you can do it.
    Even though it isn’t great when people are not supportive but maybe is a more of a motivator to even show them they’re wrong?

    All the best!
