The introspection you’ve expressed here – I’m sure a lot of us can relate to. I know I can. It’s not unusual though for us to try to test the waters and see if maybe, just maybe, things will turn out differently “this time.” We have to learn by doing I guess. You’re so right – every time I take a drink, I somehow Best Just another beer drinker with a cycling problem shirt that it will be different than the 5,000 times I’ve done it in the past.

My husband is a great example for me because his lifestyle is that simple lifestyle you mentioned of “not a drinker” and he doesn’t dwell on it past that. Whenever people do ask, such as in social situations where everyone is drinking, he just says, “that gives me a headache” (the truth is, it gives us all headaches, pretty much, by the next morning) but he always points that out. Sometimes he might say instead, “that will just make me tired,” Best Just another beer drinker with a cycling problem shirt is also true. He has never had any real issues with alcohol- just the possibility of a headache or being made tired before he is ready for bed is enough for him to decline from drinking. I try to follow his example and think the same way and have those answers ready for myself: “I don’t drink. It gives me a headache and I don’t want to feel tired yet.”

You are very welcome. What we live with is hard and relapse is a sort of part of the program. It’s hard to deal with but part of the game.
