Week 3, day 17….another obstacle ahead

So 17 days feels good and like I’ve had a good run at it this time, this is bad because this is when my mind starts to say “you weren’t that bad” “maybe one drink won’t hurt” “maybe try a new drink, like red wine as it’s probably just vodka/insert any alcoholic drink that makes you bad”

These thoughts are not good because they weaken my defence. I must stay strong. I must not give in, however tempting, I will think of my little girls eyes when I was last drunk and shouting at them all, then the promise I made to complete 100 days, and how bad day 1 feels…

Another social night tomorrow, Mr A wants to go and watch a band, something we never do together but we are trying to make an effort to fix this broken relationship. The band is a Johnny Cash tribute which he will like and it’s in his football teams club venue so this is the main reason he wants to go. I said I’m not drinking so may find it hard (I sometimes help behind the bar there so can easily have as much drink as I want)… not sure yet what strategy I will use…maybe keeping busy behind the bar but that’s not much of a quality time as a couple is it 🤷‍♀️ hmm will have to just hope the band are amazing and I don’t get at all bored!!
