      It sure does, and at least you're not barfing for two days like Idiot Old Lady Me.

      SEE! Every moment is a teachable moment >enter smarmy sarcastic face here<.

        I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself at the moment. I just got home from a party and I didn't eat a single corn chip, potato chip, piece of bread, or processed meat. I also drank only water and zevia soda. For me, that's a huge accomplishment. I only ate food that I brought to the party, which is also amazing when there were doritos right in front of me for 5 hours.

            Had wine, cheese AND chocolate on Friday but none of that on Saturday. Declined a Klondike bar on Saturday.

              Blerg is right - I just came here to say the same thing. Feel terrible. I thought too many sulfates in white wine made it off limits but now it seems the same is true of red for me.

                  I've managed to kick the weekday drinking into touch for around 10 weeks now,...although I'm not sure if we're counting Friday . I used to be a heavy drinker, like 1 bottle per night every night and 1 1/2 at weekends - I felt terrible.

                  Making it harder so, is my wife is exactly the same, and hasn't stopped, so I typically watch her consume between 1/2 to 1 bottle of wine every evening. Fairly heartbreaking knowing how good I feel without it. Our drinking was to heal pain, which I won't go into, but I'm so pleased to now have control over 'it', rather than 'it' having control over me.

                  You all seem to be doing very well in here. Acknowledging it's too much is half the battle.

                        I'm going through the same thing. I stopped about 21 months ago but husband didn't. He got worse for awhile and now goes up and down. It is hard watching and also hard to have fun with one drunk and one sober. I didn't realize how not funny I was drinking until I had to watch someone else (who is drinking) make jokes while I am sober trying to find the punch line. I think part of it is me too--I am more "flat" than I was when drinking. Anybody else noticed that?

                          Hey @missblue. Not sure about the flat thing, with me it was quite the opposite. I was drinking to numb emotional pain/trauma which put me into a vicious circle of self loathing. I couldn't have been any more flat than I was then.

                          I find that now, the charisma has come back with the confidence and absence of self loathing. Not that I'm a nutter that bounces around everywhere here and there, just unfalteringly sanguine. It's a good place to be

                                ok, I'm in.....been trolling this thread from the beginning. I've been trying to cut down for months with no success, I don't drink beer except on weekends working in the yard, but oh boy do I love my Scotch..... Been a daily drinker for many years, when I finally took control over my eating/health PB. I just can't understand why I still let this one thing continue to rule me, expecially since it makes me feel like crap every morning. So you folks have motivated me to get this done!
