Hey group. I am starting over and recommitting today. It was dumb, it was like I was on autopilot, walking to the store, getting a 750ml of vodka, drinking it. I need to tattoo on my hand, you don't drink anymore you moron!

And here we are.

I'm on my 8th day. It's going to be tempting tonight since I committed to going out with a girl a while back. She's expecting to go out to a bar or something similar. I'm not sure if I should call it off or go out and make up an excuse for not drinking. I would like to go rather than sit at home, but I hate to put myself in that kind of situation.

Starting day 6. Had a good long talk last night with my significant other about my resolve to quit drinking. He was against it at first because all of my previous attempts have been solely to lose a few pounds and my abstinence didn't last long. This time however, I need to do this for my long term health, my mom died of cancer a few years ago and I don't want to do that to my kids. I also used alcohol to cover up some pretty serious internal hurts. I'm at a place in my life that I feel like I can face those problems head on and not hide behind drinking. I am just now realizing how much I have to live for and what a healthy me can accomplish in this life.

I'm all in with the June group. 7 days sober today almost to the hour. I stumbled across this site when I Googled the words "twelve pack a day" LOL. Great to see all the support and read how others deal with this monster. It does seem a bit deja-vuish though because most of the fears, feelings and thoughts written on here by others could have easily been posted by me.
I'm new to this and to forums, so bear with me as I get up to speed.

Hi Stang,
Welcome to our group! I got my first week sober last month and thought I was a rock star and totally messed it up. The next day I got back up and started again. You just being here and being honest is awesome.

Now come one, let's get it together......both of us!

[QUOTE=MelindaFlowers;2630083]Hi Stang,

I have 8 days now and am feeling great, I'm hoping just to have the strength not to pickup, that's how the cycle usually goes, I quite, feel great and pickup again, I want to quit this for good. Praying daily, exercising and staying positive are the cornerstone for me so far.

Mercurial, I am sure it is going to be your best birthday ever... And you will be there next morning to remember it too.

To bed now... after a great sober saturday. Very tired... my kids have this habit of getting up at 6 am, but decided to go for a bit earlier today. So I better put myself in bed right now.

Enjoy the rest of the WE!
