  • It's Friday! Will be picking up a bottle of red on my way home from work. It's one bottle per weekend, that's it, once it's gone it's gone.
    Go sell crazy somewhere else.........we're all stocked up here.

        • Yesterday had a beer and one glass of wine during impromptu pool party with dear friend I never get to see. Way less than I would have had a month ago and get this...today I felt a black cloud over my mood and energy.

          It's it possible that people metabolize alcohol differently? Stupid question? Why do I feel the effects of such a small amount?

          Btw, drinks were over a 4 hour period.

            You mean you feel physically crappy? Or are you just punishing yourself? You've been doing great so far, so let it go if it's just the guilts. If you feel physically crappy then maybe your tolerance is changing. Lots of people report that. Also, for sure different people metabolize alcohol differently.

            After my initial indiscretion this week I did great! Yay Friday!

                • Hard trigger night for me, but I fought it....

                  Eldest son was having a sleepover at our house with two buddies, which
                  meant EVERYONE would be occupied and I wouldn't have to do ANY
                  entertaining...

                  A glass (or four) of wine on the couch sounded just loverly!

                  But then I had some bbq chicken and some garlic bread and all was
                  right with the world... and then some chips ahoy chocolate chip cookies.. which
                  derailed the diet for the day, but I guess that beats feeling like shit all
                  day tomorrow in bed barfing. Right?

                  I guess.

                    • drank too much yesterday...ugh...

                      Am I pushing it? I'm thinking I might start limiting on the weekends, like "only 3 drinks "...anyone found success with this?

                      • I did pretty well during my 30 day stomach healing thing. I drank eight times in 30 days which is about the same as being a weekend drinker.

                        I rarely get hangovers. I don't drink much red wine because I get a headache before I get a buzz. So wine is just a "with food" kind of thing. Clear spirits are pretty kind to me. Generally a big glass of water and I'm good to go. I almost wish I suffered more because I think it would be a deterrent.

                          Is the stomach healed?

                          • I went out dancing the other night and found a good system. If you tell them you are the designated driver, you get free non alcoholic drinks all night. (Don't know if this is just a California thing but worth checking out).

                            Then you have something in your hand, a soda and lime or an iced tea, so you don't feel like a social weirdo. And. It's. Free.

                            The thing about drinking is that it really gets expensive at $6 a drink. I would rather spend that money on some good meat.

                            So, marshall your inner cheapskate and it will be good for curbing the booze intake too.

                              I never did.

                              I just found myself using a BIGGER wine glass or making my cocktails 1/2 & 1/2 in a 16oz tumbler.

                              So 8 ounces Jack Daniels and 8 ounces coke.

                              I definitely applaud those that can have a glass of wine with dinner and that be it. Or a glass
                              right after.

                              Sadly, I'm not one of those, never have been and never will be.

                              Not sure how long my wagon ride is going to last.

                              We have less than 30 days of summer left here before the rigmarole of school begins.

                              I'd like to be able to enjoy one last bender before it all comes to an end (bender
                              in my sense of the word, not an all out blowout drunk-fest as some see that word
                              to mean), but I really don't want to suffer the consequences (if any) or start up
                              that hankering.

                              Anyway, no cravings for it or anything, just talking out loud.

                              I'll probably just keep on keeping on, because in the end, THE BOOZE WILL ALWAYS
                              BE THERE.

                              It's not going anywhere.

                                It feels like it. Anchovies don't make me vomit now. LOL. Since it was very non-scientific, and I never got the jar of anchovies that made me vomit tested, I can't be sure. I ditched anything that comes from the sea for 30 days, tried to ditch coffee (6 cups in 30 days), alcohol, and pretty much lived on rice, lamb, avocados, bananas, and at the end some grass fed beef.

                                I missed fish so much that on day 31 I think I ate two cans of sardines in rapid succession. heh.
