    Still haven't had anything to drink, and I won't tonight. But I really, really want to.:blank:

    P.S. I've gained weight since I stopped drinking! :lol:

    Hang in there! I'm here wondering what on earth hit me this weekend. The urge couldn't be further from my mind. Hope the evening went well for you. :)

    :doh:

    Maybe it's lean mass! :spaz:

    Didn't drink yesterday. I'm not going to drink today. :tu:

    Less than one week left in the month, folks! HOME STRETCH! :spaz:

    Man oh man... 24 days in. I was feeling good about finishing out the month until..... I was offered an extra ticket and a ride to Talladega this weekend. Busch race and the Cup race. I'm seriously doubting I will be abstaining from alcohol if I go. A night at a bar is one thing. A weekend of hanging out with the guys 10 hours away from wife and kids is another. :blank:

    That's a tough one. I can't give you any advice especially since I tripped up and had a glass of wine over the weekend. But I'm going to finish the month sober.

    Yipes! Don't take the whole thing into your head at once or let the urge distort your views of the weekend in order to get itself satisfied. Focus on today, have a great time with your friends, and keep yourself sober in smaller increments -- an hour, half hour, fifteen minutes, whatever.

    I've got a beach trip coming up next month and it's already freaking me out for the same reason. I can feel the booze trying to talk me into giving up. It's definitely tough. :(

    Good luck! :tu:

    I hung in!:tu: And I'm still hanging in, doing much better today.:D


    :lol: Or extra cookies! Or actually even my allergies. I'm about to spend the next month blaming everything on them. Scapegoat!:nod:

    :spaz:
    These things will always come up, of course. There are a lot of different options, too.:confused: What are you thinking of doing?

    Edit: Tonight was tough. I went out to a club with friends and had an excellent time, but really wanted to toss back some drinks and get into the same super-happy fueled up mood they were in. Didn't. Very happy about that. Bedtime.

    Made it through the weekend.

    Tired as hell, worked my ass off on the house all weekend. Sometimes I think home ownership is WAY over rated.

    Could have downed some beers but stayed clean and dry!!:tucool:

    So, may we assume you got hammered, then? :lol:

    At least, tell us you didn't stand on the roof of a pickup truck parked in the infield while holding a shoddy, hand-lettered "Show us your tits" sign. :D

    Did you drink yesterday? You back on the wagon? Today's all that matters now unless you got some sort of time-machine. :nod:

    Classy! :cool:

    One more day, people! :guitar:
