FieldReport- Congrats on 8 days!!

ReadyatLast- great job on day 6! This thread is excellent for getting through the weekends. Someone is always around.

I wrote out a list of things to accomplish today. So I am being a grown up and getting the weekend started off on the right foot.

TRHPS is the only musical I have ever been to which is a bit of a surprise considering some of my ancestors were old time Music Hall artists.

Petals- I am not sure. I have a husband who is drinking at home a lot and it really bothers me too. I would really like him to support me with my sobriety instead of drinking around me but I can't control what he does. I think it bothers me because I would like for us to be in this together. Also it doesn't seem fair he gets to check out all the time and I have to deal with it. I plan on going to a al-anon meeting on Tuesday. I think I need to get some skills to help deal with it.

I wish I could help petals, maybe you should go to another room and let him drink alone. He might get the message then

Petals- It is hard to let it go but just remember to play the tape forward you are going to feel great tomorrow and they probably won't...

Congratulations Labatty.

Petals, I have the same problem with partner. I was feeling a bit sick today so I really didn't want him to go to the bar tonight as he usually does saturday and sunday (it would leave me with full responsibility for our child and I really felt off colour).
I had asked him not to bring alcohol into the house and he has agreed (since I became sober). Tonight the compromise is he bought alcohol home rather than go to the bar. I feel really fed up he just couldn't do without drinking for one night. And I really hate having it in the house. I don't want to drink.....I just hate everything about alcohol at the moment and as you say I resent that he gets to 'check out'. It is really lonely.
I don't know, maybe I am being unreasonable.

Welcome to Weekenders Labatty and congratulations on 105 days that's wonderful.

DarklingSong you're not being unreasonable at all. I think that many drinkers don't realise how hard it is on others when they are drinking around them. I have not always been single so I know how hard it must be to put your foot down over something like that. At least he is not bringing it into the house most of the time.

Hello, weekenders! Just stopping by before getting ready for work. My body doesn't seem to want to cooperate this morning! Good thing I can get another cup of coffee on the way

Morning everyone, I had a broken nights sleep thanks to various emergency vehicles running their sirens. I have no idea sure why they were so active.

Petals, get up extra early in the morning, blast the music and start dancing. My wife does that on occasion. Have no mercy.

We have someone in our office who suspiciously often can't make it thru a Monday or often doesn't even make it in.
