Starting Over

I have been working on my road to recovery for a couple of years now. I haven't quite found the right formula for me, but I refuse to give up!!!

I had trouble too. Still do. I just take it one day at a time with a commitment not to drink that day. I tell myself, well I'll drink tomorrow and go max out drunk, but for today I will not drink no matter what. I'm a natural procrastinator, I love to put things off till tomorrow, and this tip works with not against my personality. I do a lot of other mind tricks that result in me in delaying the decision to get drunk.

You are bang on. You have to find what method will work best for you. So with so many options out there, you will find your path, I have no doubt.

Rock on

I do the same thing!! The way I look at it, the liquor stores will not be going out of business and will be open tomorrow, so what's the hurry? I'm also still waiting for liquor stores to have a 75% off sale. John
