I have made it through the weekend sober.
Had to go to a massive leaving do but just drank ginger beer (non-alcoholic) with scotch bonnet peppers and lime in, was really different and if you like spicy / caribbean style food i recommend it.
I was commended by friends throughout the night how happy and sociable I was even though I wasn't drinking, I was feeling sorry for myself for slipping up last week, but even though I had that slip all is not lost.
I am still 100x more confident than when I first started all this.
One thing I have learnt is not to neglect your support network and to reach out if you feel you need to talk to someone, as it could make all that difference and mean you don't take that first sip!
Hope you have a great day people!
