Welcome back. I know how hard it is to pick yourself back up but I have found it to be absolutely worth the fight.

I’m so tired of the battle

Welcome back. I've been thinking so much about the above statement. I realize with such clarity how much of my life I've just been fighting. I wake up, the bell rings, and I'm in the ring, fighting. But who? What? I've mostly just been punching the crap out of myself and wondering why it hurts so much. Its like I've just chosen to live life on 'hard' mode, rather than easy.

Acceptance. Not only that I can't drink and not have terrible consequences. But of life. Of everything. Acceptance is so wide and deep. Kind of a trip. Acceptance that I can't drink can help me stop. Acceptance of everything else, including myself, helps me stay stopped.

What a great group here. Thanks to all for much encouragement. I read on another thread that it wasnít the 20th drink that made us drunk it was the first. I must remember that. My AV slithers in with such sweet invitations. Itíll be only wine, you can handle that...or one wine plus one bourbon (3-4 fingers) would be OK. Nuts, that voice is mine and it lies. Itís the one that makes me drunk.

All my company is finally leaving as we speak. Itís been non stop chaos with adult kids here moving back to the states. Not an alcohol free zone. So I came home from work last night (9:30) and had wine. It seems that when I say I wonít its like a bull with a red flag. If you arenít ready to show me out I will keep coming back. I have been sober before I will be again. Itís a peaceful way to live. I will report in tonight after work.
