I haven't had a drink in three weeks. Part of it I was in hospital (1 1/2 weeks), part at home on antabuse... Although the antabuse makes the decision not to drink in the moment easier, it's still so challenging. All the things I used to drink for all the things I used alcohol to be able to do. Gah.

Yesterday I didn't think I could do it anymore. Today I'm choosing to keep going... Surely it has to get easier with time??

26/29 free 28/29 within my limits.
I went out last night for a few hours and had three pints. It was within my usual limits but I said I wasn't going to drink on Fridays or Saturdays so it counts as not in my limits. I took out enough for four pints and didn't take my cards to prevent me drinking more but I actually only had three drinks. I don't know how I feel about last night. It's great I managed three pints but mainly I'm just far too tired to drink or be out of the house so it doesn't feel like much of an achievement.

I just thought I should make it clear this was this bit I liked. All you can do is try and the fact you want to stop is the most important thing that will help you succeed in stopping.
