    Off out for meal today and a 3 mile walk :)

    My brother booked a place local to me so that I can't turn down the invitation for a meal. Clever lad. We're going for a family meal at a pie factory. First time in a place with alcohol since I quit drinking almost 2 years ago. Infact, I haven't been out the house for a good 2 weeks.

    I'm excited. The place is a 3 mile walk. I enjoy walks and hate transport of any kind.

    Hopefully this'll be a success post tonight because I'm also now only on 1 drug which is paraxotine. Thus far everything has been going very well and I'm feeling so good about things.

    Brilliant positive post James , sounds like you are doing good. Good luck tonight, sounds like you've got it covered though. Looking forward to the update tonight.

    I do like a steak and Stilton pie myself.

    Back. I ended up walking the 3 miles. Took an hour but got there fine. I think the highest the anxiety got was about 3 on 1-10 scale. Seen all my brothers, my mom and my Nan. I struggle to eat around others. Usually I have a beer to calm the nerves but alcohol wasn't an option either way. I rid out any bad feelings and feeling pretty proud now. Everybody was amazed I turned up. They expected me not too. I had a chicken and vegetable pie. It wasn't bad. I was mostly picking slowly with food but got through most of it.

    All in all a very good day. We offered to have my brothers kids before they go to school Tuesday so having fun with the little ones. Just took them up the shop to get a packet of sweets each.

    I'm doing miles better without the promazine. Not sleeping in the daytime and my sleeping pattern is pretty much normal now.

    That's brilliant James, I struggle eating with others too, I think it's a common theme unfortunately. Picking your way through the meal is fine, it's not a competition to see who eats the most.

    Well done again, have fun with the littlies.

    Thank you. Oh, and there was a steak and Stilton pie on the menu.
