I have not started out well but I'm feeling determined to pull myself together.

Tomorrow I will do better.

 

0/2.

Good luck!!! I hope things get better for you soon x
August is a tough month for me... but will try and work towards minimization :o

Bad start. 4 drinks the last couple of days.

0/2

But one day at a time and all that...

I wish I didn't need to be in this thread again but I really do... I'm aiming for abstinence but to give me some leeway, there's the option of up to three pints but only during the week with friends. No drinking alone. No Friday/Saturday drinking. No drinking if I'm anxious or I'm doing it because I feel rubbish.

2/2

To everyone: There is plenty of time to turn things around :)

^ I'm sorry august is difficult for you too. I'll be thinking of you and sending strength to fight along side you. At this point survival feels like the main priority... so yes, a day at a time, we will get there ((hugs))

6/6 I also had surgery so not drinking was made easier by being in hospital, being on pain meds and being physically unable to get to the shop but it's still 6 days without booze :)
