    Thanks for the reply. I am feeling much calmer. I have now planned activities such as biking and kayaking to keep occupied in a healthy way. At the two wedding events I will count everyone’s drinks always my favorite past time lol

    Christmas was very good, no cravings, lots of great family time. I have never been an occasion drinker so it does not trigger me. However, I have a wedding in Buenos Aries in February to go to (my son) and today I have been fretting about it. We have rented a 4 bdrm house and it will be full of drinkers. The wedding also will be a huge drinking affair as they are all 30 something’s still in the party mode. We booked air points ticket to go business class as it is a 15 hour flight. I mentioned to my husband that I was worried about getting through the business class flight (something about free booze that is hard to say no to) and the 10 days full of drinkers and he said that he did not want me to fall off the wagon as he likes the sober me much better. For some reason that pissed me off and now I am sitting in the midst of a full blown craving. Not sure why that was such a trigger, I guess I still think of myself as able to drink and be the life of the party, how dare he……..OMG. It is getting better and after reflection I think I always like to keep my options open to drink if I want and my husband is no longer supporting that view. Hope everyone is enjoying their day today. Thanks for listening!

    • I can understand your dilemma. Don’t worry about anything yet. It’s still a while away. You will feel stronger and happier by then. Chin up . A wedding in Buenos Aries sounds amazing 🙂

    • it’s hard to imagine yourself never drinking again, but over time your vision changes. I was crapping myself about Christmas but now it seems it was pointless putting myself through that worry. xxx

    • At least your hubby is being honest with you, and he seems to be supporting you. Not sure about my OH he’d probably say “well just drink then”. And then where would I be? Pissed on a plane and feeling like crap when I got there I guess. :). Noella is right tho, it’s a long way off so worry about it when the time comes, if you’re still in that frame of mind by then…
