Not at all. This thread is for anyone dueling with the drink. Please go ahead and celebrate any of the victories you have or struggles you're dealing with.

Cosmo and Folks,

I was out today and got invited in for a smoke. In party mood I moved on to a bottle of wine. Oh well, still did the 7 days detox.Consider

Ups and downs.

No worries, start counting again if you wish. We may be miles apart but we can be together on this effort.

Okay, I'm in... tomorrow is day zero for me, because this has been churning in my head for far too long :

Perhaps.

I've never had a person ever show me where the line was, to keep from crossing over it. So at one point in college, I decided to draw my own line.

I grew up in a family where alcohol was considered a fifth food group.

There is really no line, more of a comfort zone. If *not* drinking takes you out of a comfort zone, then perhaps the booze is in control of you and not vice-versa.

It happens. At least you had a slice of health for a bit there. I just finished day two.

Hope you can rally and start swinging again quick here. Smile

Thanks Cosmo,

A bottle of wine and no hangover; that has to be a positive.

OK, lets try for another few days, or whatever we can manage. "day two" sounds good to me. Thumbsup

Yeah that's going to be the hurdle for me this Saturday, my boss is having everyone (& their spouses) at the office come over to his house for a barbecue , there's going to be beer, wine & everything.

It's a strange type of peer pressure that I feel that to say "I'm not going to have anything to drink" at a social gathering is going to make people think there's something wrong with me.

unsapien,

Ain't that the truth!

When our daughter was born I did 7 yrs without alcohol; just felt right at that time. Lost count of the attempts to explain. Like you say, folks just assumed I had 'issues'. Huh
