Answers to hard ?s

I am now 9 days sober, yet again. I feel horrible. My birthday is next Tuesday, and I'm worried about the festivities, especially my Mother-in-Law, but not about temptation. She's either going to think I'm pregnant, or gravely ill. The last thing I want to hear all night is, "Do you need to go to the hospital? You look really bad."

I'll take any suggestions on what to tell her. Thanks guys!

I'm really selling the "health conscious" card to everyone now. Which is basically true. Like... thought about what I can improve in my life, and decided to do more exercising and less drinking. I'm not sure about your relationships with your relatives, but I think usually people pay much less attention to the fact that we are not drinking than we ourselves do.

Bird, I am now 9 days sober, yet again? You are FANTASTIC. Congratulations. Just say NOOO..., and Happy Birthday.

Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
