One Week

We're twenty minutes into Saturday here in the UK. Today is day 8.

Something I never thought I was would do only a matter of days ago, I've been sober a whole week.

As always, thank you to everyone on this site for their support. Here's to Week Two!

Congratulations to you both. That's a great achievement. Keep it up, and remember, you never have to drink again.
Best to you both.

way to go on doing what you thought you couldn't, Tynesider.
Kinda shows you that believing everything you think to be true may not be the best option at all times

Keep going!

My AV is being a complete git today. I'm watching the FA Cup Final and it's saying "go on, it's Saturday and the football is on, you'll enjoy it".

It can go and get stuffed. I'm doing this. Anyway, if I can't enjoy football without a drink then I'm quite clearly not a fan and I should watch something else.

If it's making you want to drink, turn the channel. Good idea Ty!

Hi Tynesider - great stuff - one week! I had a slip but hope to be catching you up again soon. The Saturday/football thing is a typical trigger - and the Bank Holiday too. Keep going through the weekend and you will be even stronger.
