6 months today feeling ok


It seems like my AV is back With a vengeance. We had people over in our cabin this weekend and both nights they drank. I felt strong but I did have drinking dreams and woke up scared. I did think a lot about booze. Things like "nobody will be able to tell if you have a couple" or "just have two drinks and stop". We all know how that works. So I stayed strong and I am now I'm feeling good about it. 6 months woo hoo!!!

Addictive Voice.....no problem (not for asking, but that beast is an ugly dude.....)

Inspirational post for me! Needed to read this today......A true test has not yet come. One wedding reception, but I am otherwise an ostrich. Wife doesn't drink and I have severed relationships with drunk "friends" at this point.

But, I know I am not an island.
You've helped many(me too) with this timely, heartfelt experience.

peace

Congrats! The difference between my AV at 6 months and now at almost 11 months has been remarkable. A lot of internal stuff came flowing to the surface, overwhelmingly at times, but working through it and staying the course has been so good for my growth. It's a wild ride but it's worth it!

If you think you're too small to make a difference you haven't spent a night with a mosquito
