    Still hanging in there

    3 days since I last posted, but they have been 3 DRY days. Only one more weekend and then it should be clear sailing to the finish line.

    Fridays are the hardest !

    I feel I deserve a drink after the hard week at work and at the gym. I was rushing all day, then I had to squeeze in a workout before band rehearsal, so I REALLY felt that I wanted to mark the end of the week when I got home with a nice glass or two of red wine. At rehearsal, everyone else is swilling beer, and I'm not at ALL loose, my head isn't in the tunes. I keep thinking, "maybe if I just had some wine, I'll get in the groove." I know if anyone else had switched to wine and I'd opened a bottle for them, I'd be on my knees in front of this august company, begging forgiveness for my sins...

    But, as luck would have it, no one did, so I stayed in the corner clutching my seltzer bottle, and now they're all gone, and it's time for bed, so I think I dodged this bullet, especially since I've already gone and typed this. This is definitely one day I needed this challenge to get through!

    One more day in the books. Two more weekend days, then it's downhill 'till Thursday, which is my end date.

    So, thanks.

    I'm short of time this morning so I'm doing a cut and paste of what I just wrote in my journal.

    Deja, get out your toys. They were getting dusty anyway. :D :(

    I'm still clean... I think that I'm just going to give up alcohol forever. It serves no purpose in success in my life, so why keep it around?

    I've had the same thought, BJ. I was dry for something like 25 years anyway, and I had plenty of good times without the alcohol. And I remembered them! We'll see if I still feel that way at the end of the month......:)

    Another day done!

    I agree with that. I've had one beer since July 1st and that was when some relatives come up for a visit. Don't miss it at all, but the again I was never a big drinker or even a daily drinker, just now and then.

    When my son came home from rehab on July 1st because he isn't allowed to drink for 2 years while his brain recovers I sort of vowed not to either. That way when we are in social settings and most are drinking he won't feel like the odd man out.

    On the upside it goes well with my new healthy lifestyle I've adopted with clean eating & exercise.

    I was back on track yesterday. Home stretch now as I started early and will end on Friday so that I can have a beverage Saturday during my JSF pre marathon meet up. Looks as if I'll finish with two flubs which I think puts me in first place. Or last depending upon how you look at it.
