I dumped it all in the trash


I searched my house for all of my regular hiding places and what I found I threw out. I'm nursing a major tooth infection and thought the excuse of vodka would be my friend. It's not. I can't do it anymore. Garbage man will
Be here soon and I am so happy to send off whatever booze was left here. I'll be back later. Have to get ready for work. Please say some prayers or thing good thoughts for me. Alcohol has been the biggest struggle of my life!

Good job on getting rid of the booze. I hope the tooth starts feeling better. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way!

Getting some resolution to dental issues for me got me out of pain and the antibiotics cleared my head immensely at 6 months. Hope nursing the infection includes dentist!!

I poured about a gallon of good vodka down the drain the day i quit. Didn't want the temptation of weaning off any more.

Glug glug...down the drain. Better there than in my body.

Prayers.

Boy howdy, do I relate to that. It was the most awful thing I have been through, and it went on for decades. I hope the nightmare ends for you right now, today. You deserve it.

I'm glad you got rid of it. Booze and hard stuff will not help a tooth infection despite your AV saying its a good for you. You will feel loads better after you go to a dentist.
