You know, that I know, that we all know, that we don't need an excuse to drink. I dropped a packet of spices off my computer. It p*ssed me off. Made me want to drink. It's cloudy out. Makes me want to drink. I'm tired. Makes me want to drink. Etc.

How about we look at the reasons not to drink?
I am trying. I really am but I feel like getting drunk too. Sigh. .There's alot of good. More good than bad. The best 36 days of my life in a long time. But it doesn't stop life from being challenging and it hasn't stopped me from feeling lonely. I dont understand why I dont t have a boyfriend. I dont understand why I am not married I deserve to he married. Even the alcoholics in the AA meetings are frigging married. Why am I not married?!!!!!!!

I am gonna shut up. I am in proper victim mode. I have actually opened one of the bottles and have poured myself a glass
Man it looks so frigging good. I am talking to myself thoufh. Talking myself out of it. I look fine on the outside but my head is screaming right now. Effing exhausting. Can't type as fast as i am thinking. Got 30 mins left and I will make a decision
If you don't hear off me for a while it's because I have failed and I want to thank all of you for caring.
My AV is still shouting at me.

It's not too late my friend. And dear god, a glass of wine sounds delish. Trust me an hour ago I had made up my mind to drink. Don't make me drink with you! It will be all your fault! I'm totally kidding. I'm just trying bass-ackwards psychology to help you reasses. And being silly.

You are not a failure so long as you keep trying. I still want to see your list yo! *big hugs*

Do you know what brought you to feeling this way? I know for me what it is- Every single letter of HALT.

Do you think you'd be able to give yourself enough time to try something instead of having that drink? Maybe try a walk like OT suggested, go for a bath, read a book, do a craft, play a game with a friend, go shopping, go for coffee, or anything else?

Knb I'll tell ya though - after 36 days off wine...two bottles is gonna kick your butt and make you so sick. You don't want to end up in the ER do you? Or worse. God forbid that this binge is what does it. Seriously, friend. Pour it out.

Pour it out and you win. You will not be alone forever. Wine isn't your friend, it lies to you. It will only make the lonliness worse. You can do this!!!

Loneliness in my experience is caused by my drinking not solved by it. I made alcohol a priority over everything in my life, including myself and that pushed everyone out of it. It really is just that simple. I cease to be "me" while drinking and become something far worse.. my faults amplified.. my depression increased. I don't want that person around anymore. I hope you find the strength not to drink that wine knb... sounds like a call to a sponsor would be in order... pouring a glass isn't really giving yourself a chance...

Oh man. Sense is coming back to my head.

I poured both bottles down the drain just now.. . Can't believe I just did that.

Gratitude to you guys for your posts. I kept reading them over and over again.

Thank you so much Apple, soberjim, 360startstoday,delizadee ,oldtomato, auggie, sadie, JL. Your posts meant alot to me.

I am mentally shattered now. Gonna have a shower and order a big fat pizza, and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Gonna pile bananas on the icecream. Hell with the diet. It was a close call tonight.

I feel much much much better. Thank you guys big time

I hope things work out for you without the alcohol. Early death, sudden death, or slow death from painful disease--or some combination of these deaths--is all that alcohol had planned for me. I definitely do not want to drink that stuff anymore.

I have a test of my own... last week my doctor found a tumor on my body and in two hours I am going in for an ultrasound. I'm petrified. I've been fearing this all week and doing relapse planning in my head if there is bad news. I've been sober for exactly 7 days now

knb02 - When I read your post, I was so filled with relief, I cried. We are going to do this and we are going to do this together.

jobei - Keep us close. My last binge was the result of bad news from the doctor. So basically, what I did was take a really bad day and made it much, much worse. Please don't let that happen to you.

Mel this is exactly what I was saying to myself while looking at that glass. Alcohol is poison. I am an addict and I am sick but there is still hope.
