Hi again strawberryashes
I made it to the show, and I did have one beer.
I don't mean to inject a sour note, but I used to think I had success when I drank just one beer too....or when I managed not to get drunk.
What I didn't realise then was even that one beer still kept me in that cycle where drinking alcohol was a viable option... I was leaving a door open, and sooner or later I would return to drinking the way I used to.
You're definitely moving ahead from where you were and thats great...maybe I missed something in previous posts and you want to try moderation....but why not make the whole leap and try full sobriety?
otherwise I think it's like swimming with one leg...I'm sorry, but I doubt you'll get very far.
