Hi whatcouldbe When I tried getting sober in early January I got the flu and I thought the same thing. I hope you feel better soon.

Feel better! Sorry you have the flu but, as you say, could be a blessing in disguise if it makes the next day or two easier with regard to cravings and wrestling with getting a drink.

Thanks for well wishes. Today is rough, pretty ill but still checking in. This flu has its grips in me. Its ironic how much i read and re-read medications (always have) for interactions and minimum dosage. One thing is clear, i overlooked the "do not mix with alcohol". I distinctly remember having a cig or drink because alcohol cures anything and a cig helps with the cough......how delusional was that!?!? Regardless day 10 in the books...

Keep moving forward!!!!!

Maybe get a plan together, what you'll do when a craving hits or someone offers you a cocktail or......you're in the store or your brain says "You got this, you habe 20 days sober, you don't have a problem"

Whatcha gonna do when you feel better?
