3 drinks today... Could have easily been many more, so happy with that, considering all I had to deal with...

I had a few drinks tonight. But was out with a good friend for dinner, so was a different feel to the drinks. Just relaxing and enjoying catching up. That's how I want to limit my drinking to be... But easier said than done :(

Had maybe 5 drink yesterday :( really sucking at this, this month. Feeling quite awful and overwhelmed with everything really, and just not coping well I guess...

A whole bottle of wine this afternoon :startle:
Need to get this under control :(
I feel perfectly fine, but I know long term I can't keep doing this

My hugs go out to all of you. <3 I hope you are all proud of yourselves. If not for your end scores then at least for trying!

 

Personally I'm looking at 0/13. Yeah. It's 3:30 AM and I already ruined October 13th. I'm still on a liter of vodka a day and my body is starting to suffer the consequences.The liquor store owner keeps on trying to make deals with me, such as that I only buy from him (so he knows I don't drink more than seven F'ing bottles a week...jeez) and that he will give me discount if I buy less et cetera. He truly cares, I feel like we're at that point where business means less to him than my well-being. He actually looks sad when I walk in again. We're at the point where I don't even have to order. He'll just start reaching for my brand the second I walk in. He intentionally takes a very long time to wrap up my order, time that he uses to talk to me about health risks, liver cirrhosis, taking vitamins properly...the whole nine yards. Sometimes I love him for caring, other times I hate him for giving a shit... :(


Trying to stay sane is like a full-time hobby

Oh GW that really worries me  :( Are you able to seek help for this? I'm glad that your liquor store owner cares, that's really nice of him.

Oh gw I am so sorry you are struggling so much with this. It's absolutely devastating and I hope you can find a way to look after yourself and start reducing a bit. I'm glad the guy at the bottle shop genuinely cares and is trying to support you. I wish you had more support though when you really need it. Something to keep you safe and help you deal with all that's masked by the drinking. ((hugs)) I know it doesn't really help much for me to say I am worried and I do care for you and want to see you doing ok, but I'll say it anyway, in case it helps a tiny, tiny bit knowing you are not alone with all this ((hugs))
...
Today will be alcohol free for me :)
