I have made it one whole week. Went through a very trying time onThursday, with family issues that involve my 78 year old mom, which made me have to bite my tounge and want to calm the tenseness with at least ONE drink. After my “conversation” with my mom, I asked my hubby to go buy me just one “BIG” beer. Not because I had been drinking (hadn’t had a drop), but because I knew if “I” went to the store, I would probably come back home with more than just “one big beer”. He said, “I promised you I would…and I will, but you have done SO good…Do you really want to throw that away?” He challenged me to think about that, and I changed my mind. It was hard. And thanks to his encouragement and support, I resisted, and on top of that, because I didn’t give in, I got a whole bunch of cleaning done. Instead of wallowing in self pity and vowing, yet again, to never ever drink, I was able to be productive and realize the positivity that comes from saying “no”-that, that fleeting feeling of desperation will only lead to regret.I battled and won!. My hubby is my AA, even though some might not agree with the fact that he will go buy for me, just the dissappointment in his eyes has, so far, been enough to make me say no. It’s working for me. And I love my man.:a122:
………..Well, I love my man, but don’t quote me on that on a day he’s pissed me off. :whoop
