Better than I thought



Yesterday actually went well in all regards except one...I drank...not a lot but still...

My mom came over and we actually had a good time.  I don't know what was different but she actually acted like she wanted to be at my house and there was no drama.

I am not super happy with myself for drinking but I do think that I have figured out that my family (sisters and mother) are a trigger for me to drink. I don't know if it is out of habit, or because it helps me cope with the stress of worrying about drama, or if it an avoidance strategy so I don't have to deal with my feelings.

Regardless, drinking whenever I am around them is still allowing them to control my behavior.  I am still working on it.

I haven't failed until I have given up, right???

  3. That's right, chica! The only failure is in giving up. You never have and I don't think you ever will-so why don't you just say, "I'm done playing this game." Do it. I double dog dare you! Come on...talk about one upping those sisters of yours. Yes, they are your triggers, I think I might have mentioned that.
