    Certainly checking in and seeing how everyone is doing and cheering each other on is making it easier on ME. Hope that doesn't mean I'm supposed to me in AA after all...

    Yeah PF!

    I -do- like having a place to check in and see how everyone is doing.

    I understand about the "not getting cocky part".

    Here I was spouting all the tripe about not having cravings anymore, and then
    after the boys and I cleaned the house from top to bottom (oh how I love pine sol!)
    for four hours, I was dead on my feet and the first thing that popped into my head?

    "Damn a glass of wine sounds awesome right now, and I DESERVE IT!"

    Took me three weeks to gut the damn house, go THROUGH everything, fill 20 bags of
    crap to recycle and throw away, 11 bankers boxes to shred, ten bags of clothes to the
    thrift store, and then organizing and putting away all the stuff I kept.

    Today the boys and I are going to organize our garage-sellables, make signs and price tag
    everything.

    SO SEE? I DESERVED THAT WINE!

    And then, as if by magic, the sensation of that last hangover came creeping in and I was
    like, Oh HELLS NO. So I didn't.

    Mysteriously enough, I HAVE replaced one activity with another.... Now at 5 or 5:30, instead
    of sitting out front in our chairs drinking, it's seed spitting time instead! My husband bought
    that BUCKET of individual packs of sunflower seeds from Costco for the baseball season (little league) a
    bit too late, so here we have 100 packs of seeds.

    Anyway, so I grab one, one of my seltzer waters, sit out front and get to the super lady-like
    activity of spitting shells and eating seeds.

    Quite the mess, but hey, I know how to use the blower AND a broom. OMG.

    Carry on!

    Excellent, thanks. I've never had one of those before.
    Never expected to get one either.

    Well done you, too!

    Today, was close to rationalizing a glass of wine two separate times....didn't drink, though. Without this thread, no doubt, I would have.

    I did have a glass of wine last night. In my job I had a hearing yesterday, that ironically/coincidently involved alcohol, lasted over 7 hours and I was so shocked to win I felt like I was gonna faint. It landed me on the front page of the local paper this morning believe it or not. Point being I was so wound up when I got home around 9 that I had a glass... All good and cheers!

    Way to go Julia and Sol!!
