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!

What is your plan now?
Someone asked me this question. Someone else told me to save my response for later.
What is your plan now? I am not sure (just being honest). Are you quitting, or are you drinking a few on the weekends and none on weekdays? For sure none on the weekdays. We will see on the weekends. I really just want to perm abs. I told myself - one more HO and I was done - it was proof I couldn't control it. How is it working for you? Thanksgiving break was an epic fail! Look at my abstar - it is disgusting! Fell back into my own miserable patterns.Drank wine! Wine is terrible for me. For sure no more wine - ever! I feel like I want to try to moderate one more time just once or twice a week but with only beer. Then again - one more HO and I am done! (As I am typing this there is a little voice in my head saying, "What is it going to take - one more abusive incident and you could have things happen that could change your life forever! Why risk it!" ) I have been thinking a lot about what you guys say about giving the absing some time so I can actually think more clearly about it. I am strongly considering doing a 30 (at least). I have not gone 30 days in 22 years (except when pregnant and when I quit smoking - I quit drinking for 6 months because it was the only way I could quit smoking)
