I'm new and have not quit yet. I keep thinking I will do it Monday. Then the next Monday. Etc, etc. what makes it hard is I don't drink all day then my husband comes home and has a drink and then all my effort goes out the window. I've got to get stronger.

At the very beginning of your recovery (at least) can you ask your husband not to drink at home? I hope he'll support you in that - a nurse told me "Treat this (recovery) as a life and death issue -- because it is." She didn't mean it as a scare tactic, but rather to say that, for a while, go to bed early if you need to, take time off of work if you need to or can, ask for as much support as you need, and so on. Try and make sure he understands how serious you are about this! Good luck!

Very nice Weatherman. I'm happy for you; six months is no small accomplishment. And thank you for the words of encouragement.
