    Thank you so much @Mari135, that’s exactly how it felt – a peaceful ride on the autobahn way home, nothing to regret! πŸ™‚

    It really is! And the party wouldn’t have been better with drinking πŸ˜‰

  • Seni posted a new activity comment 5 hours, 50 minutes ago

    Yes I agree, it’s not only a “funny” drunk evening, it’s definitely a control of live!

  • Seni posted a new activity comment 13 hours, 30 minutes ago

    Right! I’m still a bit surprised bout how clearly I can see all these unfortunate consequences of drinking and that I don’t regret a second to be a non-drinker. Hope this will remain cause it feels absolutely right. Good that you had fun at the meal AND energy left over in the end – and a nice “next morning!” Take care πŸ™‚

    Again a party without alcohol, I am getting used to it meanwhile. The party wasn’t that nice. A pregnant woman looked at a glass of red wine as if it was a million dollars and moaned she would die for drinking it. Another woman calculated that she could drink a glass of wine and drive home by car, when she would drink a strong coffee after the…[Read more]

    • Nope, not worth it at all. I like the way you described the behaviours of guests and birthday girl at the party, devoid of any illusions as to how wonderful drinking alcohol is. I went to a meal with friends today dreading it slightly because I was worried about exactly those outcomes. Turned out to be ok though, I had fun against all expectations…[Read more]

    • hey, @seni – boy, bet your friend appreciated you being there to the early morning hours. thanks for your post, you put me right there with you at the party, no hoping for a drink, but looking at what alcohol controls – lives.

    • I’m sorry about your party, but a huge success on attending and not drinking! It’s so much better in the morning. πŸ˜‰

    • I bet that drive was very peaceful and a wave of contentment washed over you, knowing your morning would be safe, healthy, and peaceful! Well done! You might even inspire your friend to become sober once she sees how happy you are. You never know how your own life changes affect others.

      Lots to be proud of right there!!!

    Try and failure, that’s our whole live. It’s often annoying but where would we be without this process? We would still sit on trees I think. WITHOUT smartphones, microwaves, fridge and heating…Famous inventors could tell us about failure I bet! And how about little children who start and learn going on their own feet, they have such a burning…[Read more]

    • It does work for some people at the first attempt to be sober. Not everyone has to keep trying over and over again! 😲

    • So true! Everyone is different. I was sober for a year the very first time I did it at 25. Then I did it for 2 years and then another year, then 5. I learned a lot at different points in my life. It’s absolutely not a requirement to relapse like @winner said and I honor those who say they are done and that’s it! That wasn’t my story and I know…[Read more]

    • Thank you Seni. This is a reminder that I needed today. By the end of my day one yesterday, I had slipped up and along with it came many feelings of regret. I do need to give myself a little credit because I was able to pull myself out of it and stop myself from going over board like I typically would. Today, I’m starting over again but I have…[Read more]

    Everyone knows – you try, you fail, you get up and start again. But that ain’t a rollercoaster because it’s never the same again, every time there is a little change, even if you don’t notice. You learn. Your brain and your heart learn from that experiences and then there comes the moment when you are stronger than addiction. Try on, you train…[Read more]

    Alcohol is so damn dangerous for health, physically and mentally. And it makes you feel small, ashamed, weak. I was so absolutely amazed after the first days and weeks of sobriety what a thrilling feeling of freedom it brought to me. No longer being a puppet on a string really felt incredibly good! Go through one day after another, give yourself…[Read more]

But I have to walk the dog now, will do it and think about what I learned today from all of you. Good night (day) everyone! πŸ™‚

    What a good day 5 and a wise decision. As we all know there is no lovely wine, it’s an illusion. Lovely things don’t cause addiction, headache, slurred speech, bad sleep, feelings of guilt and shame… Good idea to choose the tea! πŸ™‚

    I’ll save this! What a wise little piggy!
