Day 3 - Morning Check In

Just trying to get in the habit of checking in each day. Week days aren't a problem for me, as I don't usually drink on weekdays. I actually don't usually drink on most days, but the days I do, watch out.

I was happy and sad last night, as there was a chance I was going to run into someone I may have embarrassed myself in front of over the weekend. I did not, which was a mild relief, but I was more sad as I wanted to apologize and get past that. The person is very nice and I don't think what I said/did was THAt bad, but since I don't remember, I'm assuming the worst. This is the kind of stuff I need to remind myself of when I start feeling "ok" again. The countless times this situation has played out.

Visiting family this weekend who will try to offer me drinks. I've decided to tell them (truthfully) I'm trying to cut out cigarettes once and for all and I cannot handle even a drop of alcohol without getting intense cigarette cravings. This is not a lie and none of them smoke, so I'm not too worried about the trip even though I know I'll need to still be mindful.

Thanks for reading!
