Just bought a bottle....The toilet enjoyed it!


Hi ALL, Thought I was doing really well, day 19/20 (cant remember) sober. The usual thoughts I had about drinking wine around 5pm ish, went and I had stopped thinking about it. Well, take my husband and I having a big bust up (trivial stuff), and I'm at the shop/store buying a bottle of rose wine. Get home, sit on my bed with every intention of drinking it, because it would make me feel better right? WRONG, of course it wont, it never did. In fact if I drank while I was in any kind of emotional state, I would turn into the devil woman. No words would be limited from my mouth and I would keep on and on and on at my husband until he retaliated with the same words back at me. Oh boy then I had my ammunition, my reason to drink more and get nastier!

Came on to SR read lots, got the wine and poured the whole lot down the toilet. The smell came back up at me and made me gag!

I don't want to go back to day one in the morning, back to detoxing and panic. No amount of wine will make the situation better, it will make me worse and will be coupled with guilt and regret.....NO WORTH IT!

Happy Saturday people. Stay strong!

I wouldn't exactly say well played. Good job on dumping the poison. Bad job on bringing it home.

Maybe next time don't pick up that bottle - make that decision first. Then you won't have to make decision number 2. Maybe next time you won't be able to overcome the demon. The more we tempt ourselves the more are our chances of giving in.

Great Job! I hope when I face that same test...I will do the same thing and pour it down the toilet...or better yet not even waste the money in the first place by buying that poison. There is strength in numbers! Stay strong all!

That's great. In the past, once I'm even on the way to the store, I've relapsed, I'm drinking. Some say a relapse has already begun well before you take the drink. To be able to pour it out takes incredible fortitude. My alcoholic mind would, in the moment, consider that wasteful. From reading your experience, I consider it a win. Good job

Good choice.

Some folks left a six pack at my house awhile ago. It's been sitting in the fridge and I just couldn't dump it, so yesterday I brought it to some friends - old drinking buddies - and we chatted for awhile. I was a bit disturbed when I realized the two of them had sucked all six and more in the hour we were visiting. He's not looking too good, and she has gained a lot of weight. I don't think I'll be delivering leftover alcohol to them again. Just didn't seem right...

So, pour it out! Or give it to someone you know doesn't have a drinking problem. Yikes.
