If you are like me that bottle would just turn into months of drinking right back where I was before I stopped.

I am the same way as Tekink.
If I "celebrated" every milestone of sobriety, I would NEVER bee sober for more than 30 days, and the binge may never stop

Yes, in my opinion, it's a very bad idea.

Rewarding myself with the very substance I'm trying to stop seems counterproductive.

I couldn't moderate when I was drinking. One bottle would eventually lead to a blackout.

Abstaining for ANY length of time doesn't reset the switch and stop us being addicted to alcohol.

Why did you decide to stop for a month? What was alcohol doing or what happened that promoted that decision?

It is a very bad idea Luke. Do you really think it's possible after what I assumne are years of drinking to reset yourself after not drinking for a month?

I think maybe you are confusing abstinence for control.

I have no control once I start drinking, but abstinence allows me to not have to deal with that issue ever again

Drinking to reward yourself for staying sober is a bad idea. Stay sober and see how much better your life can get.

At a month in, I was beginning to feel the benefits of sobriety. It would have been insanity to risk that.
