I was 2 days shy of 6 months sober, and I drank. I went to a pool tournament out of town and was okay the first day, and then the second day (after the tourney was over) I had a beer, and then I had about 6 more. I can’t say I enjoyed it enough to continue drinking though. I know pool is a trigger for me, but it is something Im very passionate about, and have been playing competitively for 10 years. I have managed not to drink at pool league, but I guess I wasn’t ready for a tournament yet. I guess I kind of felt this relapse coming for awhile now. I’ve already told myself that I can’t go to Vegas to compete anymore, but Im not ready to give up pool, infact I dont want to, its very much a part of me and one of the few things Im good at. Its been about 5 days now, and I haven’t drank. Sometimes I feel like this disease controls me even when Im not drinking. I guess all I can do now, is learn from this. Just felt like I should admit to my relapse, instead of pretending it didn’t happen.
