I like this one.  I also like "Don't always believe what you think" such as:

I can't enjoy the sunshine without a beer.
I can't have fun without alcohol.
I can't go on vacation without alcohol. If I do it would be boring.
I can't celebrate without alcohol
I can't go to a party without alcohol and have fun.
I am going to be left out if I stop drinking.
I will be boring in I stop drinking.
Life will be boring if I stop drinking.
I don't know if I can do this forever.
This is ridiculous!
I am not that bad.
I always do this right after a particularly bad hangover (and always in January).
I am overreacting and obsessing.
I don't drink during the week so what's this big deal?
As long as I don't ever have another hangover, I will be fine.
I can control this.

I am having anxiety even typing this list...


  1. You are doing a great job fighting your thinking. Do have any in person help beyond online support? It makes it easier to stay sober when you are not alone!

    1. I try not to talk to anyone about it. I think they are probably sick of hearing about it :)

  2. I love how you're getting this out of your head and on to the page. I wish I had found blogging when I first quit drinking. Then I used to write it in a "journal" (any paper that was handy) but it helped because once it was there I could look at it more objectively and think, "well that's just silly" or something like that.

    Just keep're doing great.
