Smile Almost Gave In

Well yesterday I almost threw away 16 days without a drop, BUT, managed to talk myself out of it! I have a huge problem if I have money available to me & Im out on my own. I knew hubby had a meeting yesterday & I'd have about 45 mins on my own so I was intending on nipping to Tesco while I was waiting for him, regardless of the fact that I had work in the evening.
Anyway, after about a 20 minute mental struggle with myself I picked up my phone & transferred my bank balance into hubbys bank. Initially I felt annoyed at myself for doing it as I knew I now couldn't have a drink, but after about half an hour I'd forgotten about it.
I spent the time waiting for hubby reading & people watching, which can be quite good fun sometimes.
I'm pleased with myself for not doing it because 2 weeks ago I wouldn't have given it a second thought & just went ahead. But theres still that AV egging me on.....

Flex your sober muscles. It will be easier next time! Good job on keepng your eye on the prize and recognizing between you and your AV! You should feel proud. Small victories win the war.

Thank you for going through this struggle, it is inspiring me to read! And how real it is to know time passes and you dont even think about things. You are not your brain!
