I did have wine tonight with the steaks I cooked for his birthday. He was an awesome cook and I have made myself learn how to cook a damn fine steak on the grill he left behind.
    I am so sorry. I bet the steaks and wine were fantastic and a nice little memorial.

    I was really good last week, nothing on every week night. I noticed too that I lost more weight than I was expecting even though based on My Fitness Pal my calories were about the same as when I did drink.

    So I was planning on having something over the weekend. On Friday night as I was coming home from work, I slipped on an exterior stair case and got a massive bruise on my posterior and really needed something to numb it so had a few, also on Saturday and just something small on Sunday. Now, I will resume this week although I am going on vacation from Wednesday July 3 for a few days. Not sure what I'll do over vacation, perhaps just be moderate and stick with only wine.

    Yes. Thank you. And to JoanieL as well. And a nice monsoon came up while I was cooking, he would have appreciated that too.

    Back to wine free weekdays.
    Breathe. Move forward.

    So sorry for your loss. It sounds like you had a lovely reminder of him, from food to weather =)

    Its not been full 100% compliance for me but trying! When a friend visited who often leaves me feeling a little off kilter, I notice having a drink was too easy. Have to be more watchful of that. The heat of this weather is not a good companion w/ drink either. Glad to not be over 100 degrees!

    I think July 4th is going to be tough. My husband and I have been installing a bar in our family room for the past week and it will probably be done on Thursday. We have a HUGE alcohol supply, more than a lot of bars and we host a ton of parties, so we decided to install a bar in our new house. It's been months in the making. We ordered custom cabinets, a built in wine fridge, a kegerator and then we made the counter top ourselves (it's copper and awesome). Once it's all totally installed and working the temptation may just be too much...

    That sounds like it would be good as a virgin drink. Don't they make brandy extract or something?

    Anyone ready to pray their vacation plans to handle/keep control over drinking?
