Thanks Professor. I HOPE it won't happen to me, but as you've said the AV is an extremely sneaky thing. I have plans in mind for when I return so I'll be less tempted, I hope, to stray. x

Hi guys - many thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to my question about a sober holiday Santorini is known as a "vine island" but I had banana juice, orange juice, mock pina colada, coffee frappe, coca cola, gallons of water, watermelon juice, various fruit cordials and lemonade. The one thing I DIDN'T drink was any alcohol. and I had a marvellous time. Once - again, thank you x x

Santorini, how wonderful!

Those drinks you had sound delicious *takes notes.*

Just a teensy reminder - Don't let down your guard now that you're home. Sometimes the let-down or the pride of not drinking or whatever it is - people seem to drink AFTER the drinking holiday/event has be successfully accomplished sober.

Pictures? I know you know how to post them (Hi, from Fluffy's thread.)

Thank you so much Yixi for posting this and following up with us, I'm preparing for my own vacation with lots of triggers but I am holding on to your experience and our other friends' experiences to help me get through it and have a good time

Thanks guys - I have absolutely no intention whatsoever about taking up the sauce again. Bimi - will post some pics when I've a mo. Plenny - one of the other things that helped me is a well known book that I picked up. It's a few years old and it's already been made into a film starring Emily Blunt. If you've already read it, please take it with you and re-read it whilst you're there as, for me anyway, it hammered home with astounding clarity why I had chosen to give the damn poison up in the first place! Again thanks and for those who are venturing forth, I hope that you have a wonderful time away x
