Welcome back Maypole. Maybe this time's your time, eh? I don't know how many attempts I made, couldn't begin to count! Slowly slowly I learned a little, saw that only I could change myself, saw that external forces were not responsible for my drinking and that not only could only I make the change, but that gift was in my hands all the time. I was in a hopeless state and deeply addicted - if I can change my life so can you <:)>
Thank you lovely sober boots... so good to be back with you al. I need this forum to keep accountable. <:)> :\:

Happy Anniversary Panda, Good luck with this challenge.
Day 2 for me and I seem to have the willpower not to cave in today, although suffering from headaches and dehydration.(it is not always easy to drink anything in me work).

Day 1. I’m having a battle at present in my head. One side of my head is saying it’s ok to drink 2 days in 7, the other side knows I want to drink nothing, so I keep up the battle without beating myself up.

Day 3. Had a headache most of the day. The will power is going to stay off, but probably manage today. I am getting very tired but I know it is one of those nights , once i get the kids to bed I will want to chill with a glass of something. However I am going to have a bath to stop myself going out and getting a bottle of something. I am going to complete this challenge. I know the weekend I am going to struggle.
We can do this...
