Keep a bottle of mineral water with you at all times in the early days, sip from it regularly and replace as necessary.
The further away from the last drink we travel the easier it becomes

Thanks Johnc
I didn’t think of having a bottle to hand! I usually pour a glass of water but having a bottle of water is better ;)?

Day 1. I had to wait until it was over before i posted. Posting day 1 early on was asking for failure this time. It finds a crack in my armour sooner or later. Sober December? Maybe.

Day 1 almost over and am looking ahead to day 2.
The annoying thing is I don't touch a drop during the week, it's the weekend that's my downfall.
Thanks for the support guys.
Hugs to all x

Am with you Wilson and the toddler. Lol
I know I can stay AF through the week, just got to kick the habit at the weekend.
Am hoping this is the start of a very long AF period for me, am back at training which helps loads and I've got a busy few days at work.
In a fit of temper I've also put every wine glass I owned in the glass recycling, am a bit of a snob and will only drink wine from a proper wine glass. There's a method to the madness, honestly :D
I know I can stay out of my usual haunts and my OH is working days this week, so am not home alone at night, just got to stay sober at the weekend.
Hugs to all x

Sorry for posting loads today, had a bit of a rough day, heading to bed now. Need to get a good night's sleep and start undoing yesterday's damage, day 1 of dry December done.
Hope everyone is well
