Getting tested today

I'm being put to the test today, but I will pass it. Currently at a birthday party for a friend. As soon as I walk in, I get offered beer and all sorts of various alcohol. My stay at the party will most likely be brief. I'll make up something to be able to leave early. No reason to be around all this temptation longer than I have to be.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I've been there LS. I executed the same plan you are thinking about. Just politely excuse yourself. Don't drink!

Yup. Make up a plan. A simple "I really want to _________ in the morning so can't drink tonight" works quite well for me.

It's a big challenge in the early days of our sobriety LS. I was very fragile and had to be careful of temptation the first few months. It got easier as I went along. Glad you posted about it.

Just getting ready to leave the party. It was easier than I thought. I just stuck with water. Now I get to go home and feel proud of myself.

Wish your friend a happy birthday and then find an excuse to get out of there!
