10 weeks and just checking in here


I cannot believe I have got to 10 weeks AF. I also am really shocked by my previous alcohol behaviour, and think 'did I really do that?'.

I still sometimes fancy a nice refreshing G&T, but that is always when I am thirsty, and having an AF refreshing drink is what I really want.....and does the trick.

Wishing all SR newcomers and long-standers a happy AF weekend.

😀 We all think that about our past drinking, Badga, but we can’t help our past. Just think of the future.

Well done on ten weeks. I still get the occasional urge to drink, but as you say, another AF drink does the trick.

Congrats Badga! The first three months are the hardest by far.

Continued success!
