Have you seen Galaxy Quest? It's a fun Star Trek spoof movie--the character that plays the captain has a motto of "Never Give Up! Never Surrender!"

When my AV is talking to me I often think of that and say it to myself.
You're doing so very well Acheleus--you are going to do this!

Push past the craving and you will be at day 21
Tomorrow I have 1 week! Feeling better already. Fruit juice helps with cravings for me; I think it is my body needing the sugar (wine) that it previously had.

I do not need to go out I can have a quiet night of reading. I have to get sober before I go out and try to find the ladies. Losing weight from not drinking though. Feeling proud of myself.

Isn't this your usual AV pattern? The Friday craving? You've shown it the door the past few Fridays and you can do it again. Over time, the craving lessons the further you are into sobriety. You're the boss here, not your AV.

Well done on the weight loss, by the way. I've been eating my fool head off but at least I'm not drinking. My diet will come later just like the ladies for you.

Enjoy your reading!

Congrats, man!

Just keep doing it one day at a time.

And good for you for trying to improve your health. And don't worry about the ladies yet until you get a LOT more sobriety under your belt lol.

Keep it up!
