I want to remember what I did, or heard, or watched, or saw, or felt today when I wake up tomorrow.

Because it controls me when I do,not the other way around.
Because I'm better then it is. I deserve to be healthy,happy,normal.
Because it lies,deceives,ruins,steals away all good things,times,people.
Because I want to be sober.

I will not drink because the safety of my child is of extreme importance to me. Gone are the days I strapped her in her carseat to go buy that 2nd bottle of wine after I promised myself one bottle was all I would drink.

No way no how. I am enjoying my freedom from addiction.

hey all have been lurking here on the days when i am hungover and having major self loathing, like yesterday. I have been going in circles drinking and not drinking, can't seem to get to a place where I feel honest about saying I will never drink again, I know its that bloody AV, but what I am going to commit to here is 30 days of no drinking

Unhappy

Yes Azure, I'm exactly where you're at too...back to drinking every day or every 2nd day, even after coming home from AA meetings!

Yesterday, I picked up around lunchtime, so it's getting earlier in the day each time. Then: drove drunk - 2nd time in a fortnight - to buy more wine!ARghghghgghhhhh.........

I will now pour out the bottle and a bit left in the fridge - as I've done several times in the past week or two. I will not drink today because EVEN IF I THINK I WANT TO: that is my Addictive Voice - it's gained new strength again from getting what It wants. i.e. when booze is back in our brain pathways, the brain just does what it's automatically become programmed to do. So I must break out the anti-virus software of recovery again.

Thank God for you all here at SR.

azureseas and bemyself: I remember those times so well. I can't say I never thought I would resolve my drinking problem, but I sure as heck had no idea how I would. It seemed nothing, not even my own will, could keep me from having my wine when I wanted it and where I wanted it.

I was on a hamster wheel, going round and round, with no exit sign or at least an exit sign I cared to follow.

It didn't prevent me from praying every single morning (hung over or otherwise) asking my Heavenly Father for help, for strength, for peace. I believed in Him and His power, but still felt defeated.

I wish I had a magic wand or spell or words for you. Keep up the good fight. Focus on that one day when everything will fall into place and not drinking becomes the answer to all the hard questions.

I wish you well.

Tammy

I will not drink today because I don't want to and I don't need to.

My best drunk day will never be as good as my worst sober day.

My parents didn't give birth to me, for me to be a drunk, I'm worth more, my family are worth more.
