Out of nowhere today:

Wouldn't it be nice to just go sit up at Chili's and have a beanie burger and an ice cold beer? If you eat and just drink diet beers, you'll be able to just drink enough to get a buzz and leave. It won't be a problem. Just get out of the house for a couple hours.

It does this when I get bored. As if the only thing that exists outside the house is alcohol. Not to mention that I have plans to get my driver's license back this week.

I'm ordering a pizza. Then, I'm going for a walk and listening to an audiobook. Then, I'm going to knit and watch a movie. Then, I'm going to go to bed. Then, I'm going to wake up feeling just fine. Screw you, beast.

Yeah, that's a good idea - DON'T drink this week while your wife's out of town. She's suspicious and will probably call at odd times to check up on you anyway. Lay low, gain her confidence back, and then NEXT time she goes out of town you'll have a much easier time getting away with it.

If you can't beat'em, join'em, I guess.

Why don't you just let every little thing **** you off so you lash out at some innocent by-stander which will make you feel so guilty that you should just go hug yourself with a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc.

I am having a rough time lately because I'm picking up the pieces of a life mucked up by drink and drugs. The beast's answer? More booze!

DRINK AND MAKE THIS STOP!! YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEEL THIS WAY!! THIS IS NO WAY TO LIVE!!

It has no sense of irony.

Just hang out until Friday - then you can treat yourself to as much booze as you like over the weekend. Start clean again Monday knowing you had one last good weekend.

Yeah right - more like walk into work Monday morning feeling sick, depressed and unproductive.
I treasure my sobriety thanks.

That was Friday:
AV: If you have beer no one will know.
Me: Who do I look like? No one? I am someone and I will know.
AV: You are in pain, a beer would help you.
Me: Yep my legs are hurting so guess what? I am not going nowhere!!

After that little dialogue, the desire left and did not come back.

My AV: Congratulations on 15 Days Sober! As each day passes, you feel more and more pressure, don't you?

Sneaky bas****!

I had a bad week with the cravings. It was to the point where my back was tense. I made some tea and got in the tub. Then out of nowhere "You're so tense over this, just relax and think about that nice little buzz you get after 3 drinks and that will help you calm down." Wait What!

It's probably hoping someone will get sick and vomit on the new couch.

Wife tells me, "My brother asked me to go with him to see our siblings in Colorado and Texas. I'll be gone two weeks."

AV tells me, "Hmmm. Two weeks, huh? If you were to drink, that would be a good time."

That one would get me too.
It just occurred to me that I need to be accountable for this to work long term. Luckily my husband is a home-body. I just might need some type of group thing.

Thanks for commenting on that. I am hitting a wall or something. I just past the 4 month mark (one slip that made me ill) All of a sudden I am having these craves that come and then break. Deep physical tension and I wasn't ever physically addicted. I have been stalking this page again. Your comment makes me think I have something to learn at this point not just something to endure.
