I've gotten that one before. I replied "if I quit RIGHT NOW she won't notice"

My AV has been extremely quite the last few days. Maybe because I'm on my honeymoon just from reading the AVRT site. Maybe just because I just really learned about this AV...as something separate from me. Maybe it's laying low and will spring up and roar? time will tell but this seems almost to easy......
Not complaining...) I can feel it wants to speck but can't very loud...Not sure but a good strange..

That's my beast! It loves to suggest celebrating sobriety with a drink too.

You should drink a few when you are sick....you have a terrible sore throat, "the wine will KILL The GERMS IN YOUR THROAT"!!!!!

that's a real knee-slapper...the AV never gives up does he? i opted for throat lozenges and hot coffee.

I am on the 3rd day of quitting smoking. I thought I would be more worried about that. I have yet to have these strong of urges to drink in the 2.5 months I have sober. I could go to the liquor store, get really drunk and guarantee I would make it past the remaining 6 hours of this quit. (comfortably because I have not been comfortable in 66 hours) The worst part is that it sounds like a good idea. It is not happening, but even just the thought has me tense.

AV Police here!

It obviously doesn't sound like a good idea to you. It's just a thought, and it's not even your thought, so don't stress.

The AV Police? Sergeant Joe Friday reporting in:
Maybe it's laying low and will spring up and roar? Time will tell but this seems almost too easy......
Suspect AV positively ID'd and recognized, that self doubt disguise was as flimsy as a cheap burnoose.

My beast has been pretty quiet since I just finished reading Rational Recovery today. I think it's scared. Poor thing.

I did recall the first ludacris thing my AV ever said to me though today. "It's an acquired taste but you'll learn to like it."

If I have to acquire the taste then why would I even want it? I see what you did there beast. Touché.

Over at a friend's home for dinner last night with the missus. After dinner I was trying to be helpful, so the hostess asked me to take the leftovers out to the refrigerator in the garage. I know what else they keep out there. Been in their garage many times. There's beer and wine and cider in that refrigerator. Also, next to the refrigerator is a shelf where they keep the hard liquor.

When I was drinking I would always volunteer to get people another beer/wine/cider from that fridge in their garage. My first pass I would peruse the liquor shelf and identify my target - an already open bottle of something inexpensive with an easy to work cap, nothing fancy. Subsequent trips to the fridge I would grab that bottle of liquor, take a hit from the bottle, put it back and continue to the fridge for beer/wine. I always tried to be quick so it didn't look like I'd paused for anything in the garage. I can't believe I never got caught.

Putting away leftovers out there would have been a dream come true. That takes time. You might have to rearrange things in the fridge to get them to fit. You might get 2 or 3 pulls off the liquor bottle with that kind of time. And the selection last night was marvelous. Several open bottles to choose from. Nothing that would be missed. My AV took over for a few seconds as I gaped at all that liquor on display. I picked up the 1.5L of Skyy vodka to bring it in better light. Just wanted verify it was already opened and how much was left in it.

"That would be the one."

Can you imagine - standing in the garage hoisting a 1.5L bottle of vodka to your face for a quick gulp? My Beast is a pig. Maybe that's why I like bacon so much. Maybe it's a metaphor of some sort.

My AV told me I shouldn't have quit after such a wretched night of drinking, that it's a shame to end my drinking career with such a terrible time and I need to drink again to have one last 'good' night of drinking.

Like waking-up hungover again is going to make me feel better.

I get that one, too, DG049. My AV also tells me that my last drunk should be 'special'. I should drink my favorite beverages and enjoy a cozy evening in front of the television.

"Don't post that thought on SR."

After looking over my wife's travel itinerary for next week and finding spots I could drink and not get caught.

Earlier today I had to run out and pick up a couple of medications prescribed by my doctor. When I got home I took them out of the bag so I could have my first dose. So loser AV flips a nutty on me when it sees a big red/orange sticker on one of the bottles which read "DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL BEVERAGES WHILE TAKING THIS MEDICATION".

Stupid moron.

my AV I am sure gets tired of me saying O YAAA going to bed sober, feels so good...then walking up...HAAAA a clear mind AGAIN!!!....if this is possible, if this is how it can work? I let it hear me talk first....or is this recognizing it? But, I read it's always there....so why not give it a talk to first and I do not let it answer, it's quite....this is all new to me...but it's working.)
