I am a 49 year old wife, teacher and mother of 2. I have a 19 year old son and a 23 year old daughter. I am fighting this damn drug called alcohol. I have been a weekend binge drinker for 30 years. I binge 2-3 times a month on a Friday or Saturday, but alcohol kicks my butt every single day of my life. I am sick of it!

I have figured out one of m triggers is being tired. I3 days into absing, I come home
from work today, am exhausted, and had an overwhelming desire for a beer. I just
wanted to sit down and relax. My wild child voice was saying, "You have worked
hard this week - you deserve it. You have been doing great with absing, you deserve
it. You will be Ok - just have one - you deserve it." I didn't. What scares me is that
I have not totally dismissed the thoughts. Just keeping it real.
