Thanks for this idea. As soon as I read it my AV went "NO! DON'T TELL HER!!!"
I have been able to moderate before but that's the thing, my AV uses that to try to get me. I can't keep feeding it and having long periods and then drink again. My AV says, "so what if you have a couple once in 8 months or once a year, that's not bad'", but I don't want to be in this cycle.
This trip is in 2 months and I'm already struggling internally. Having these thoughts is so annoying!!!
Thanks everyone. The feedback really helps!
