Pretty girls

can coax you into doing things you know you shouldn't.

Day 1 again.

In a refreshing change, though, she was the one that made an ass out of herself, not me.

I'm sorry, I think you're giving her too much credit.

Just sayin',

Agree with one can make us do what we don't want to do. I'm going through the same thing myself with agirl I knew 15 yrs ago....just have to stay strong I guess.

QS, that post made me LOL. But at the same time I don't agree with making this girl out to be "Eve." You've already tasted the apple and accepted responsibility for that knowledge since then, so no romantic mate should fill the role of a sales rep for having alcohol. I interpret this to be someone relatively new and not a longtime girlfriend or wife. Have you had enough time to work on yourself before joining forces or do you look at it that way?

Once I missed work because come Monday morning I was still drunk from nursing a bottle of vodka until 3am, I called my boss and said a really cute girl talked me into spending the night at her house and I wasn't going to be able to make it in. So yes blamming it on a girl is just another exuse.......We don't need much of one being alcoholics we can come up with any reason, it's, Monday, stubbed my toe, got a new phone, hang nail, hit a pot hole, pretty girl looked at me......

If you're the one trying to quit drinking and you ended up drunk again, I'd say your point above could be debatable.

Good thing you're not susceptible to the ugly ones as well.

I had a lot of false starts, but that isn't a requirement for long term sobriety.

Pick yourself up and dust yourself off. What are you going to do today to stay sober is the question?

PS - Yeah, pretty girls, a bag of coke, bars...all fun, but trouble for someone like me. Maybe you too?

It may be time to reavaluate whether you want women in your life at all right now. There is a reason that people say no relationships in the first year of sobriety. For some, no sex for a year, which may sound extreme, is necessary.

I don't mean it in a punitive way at all. Early on I had to minimize risks or sobriety never would have stuck. You gotta put your recovery first and everything else second.

So I have to ask...What step were you working when this happened, and did you call your sponsor?
