It's been a while

...since I could honestly say I wanted to drink.

Tonight, I honestly want to drink.

I'm not going to but I wish that I could. Bummer.

Wouldn't mind talking but I doubt it would do any good. Thanks for asking.

Well, if you change your mind, I'll be up for a while. I am thinking about fried chicken though , so if I disappear for a bit I might be guilty of going to the store to see if they have any. Then again, maybe just taco bell. Hungry here.

it's been a rough couple for me too TSH so I empathise - but I don't want to talk about it either, LOL.

The way I see it...all I am - the person I've become - is predicated on me not drinking.

I like the me I am - I love the life I have, and I adore the partner I gained (who's never seen me drunk, and I never want her to).

sometimes - yeah - I'd like to opt out and goof off a little LOL...but it's not gonna happen

(((TSH)))

I found to my cost last week that I have no real defence against cravings.

I thought I was doing so well because I hadn't even thought about drinking! Doh

Obviously now I realise its no big deal not to drink when you don't want to.

The cravings came from nowhere and I gave in without even thinking about it, I only drank for one night before I came to my senses, so no physical harm done, but plenty of mental harm.

It has taught me that Im lucky not to suffer constant cravings but that I need to have a plan in place for the times they strike.

Well done TSH for doing the sensible thing and posting here and getting it out in the open, a good tip for me next time. x

Well im coming off the antabuse, it has given me a great 4 months head start and i dont have any cravings at all. It has really helped to reformat my mind to drinking not being an option i would recommend it at any stage.

keep strong everyone:-)

Hi Bam, and thank you for asking.

Yesterday was a tough day. Today was mildly better, but this afternoon I got all depressed and weepy and tonight I had bunco so I was around a bunch of women who were drinking. Last month it didn't bother me, but last month I wasn't wanting to drink. Tonight I realllllllly thought about just grabbing one anyway, especially since the hostess DIDN'T HAVE ANY DIET COKE (the nerve!!! LOL) and I was stuck with Diet Dr. Pepper.

Anyway... but I'm not really feeling any better. I have a couple of theories, but I don't know what to do to "Fix" things.

I do so appreciate you asking. :ghug

Hello, TSH. I've been wanting to drink again lately...I have 70 days sober today and this is the longest I've ever made it.

I can't fix anything that's wrong...

...I got another art magazine in the mail today and I threw it in a pile with the rest. Art is supposed to be my life and I'm not interested.

I don't know what to say...but I'm sorry you're feeling this way. Big hugs.
