...I am almost thirty days sober. I have not had hard liquor in over 40 days, no beer in over 30, and not a glass of wine since 29 July. And yet, I know there's a bottle I missed pouring out. My wife's vodka, she quit drinking too, and it doesn't bother her, but for me, it's calling out because I am almost always on edge. It's getting easier, but I find myself looking for that 'replacement' to the drink that I want, and I feel like it is just as bad. I am going to stay sober, but still...I want a drink.

    I understand. I'd see the bottle every morning and be proud that I'm not hung over. But, I'm not really ready for all that perseverance. You're stronger than I.

    Day 42 for me. I'd love a few drinks. I've figured that I've saved about $400.00 and yet, I want a drink.

    Congrats, to resist even though it is there in front of you is more than I can do for a long period like that. I have a different issue, but it's all the same really. I have a theoretical trick in mind, that I've not managed to use myself yet but it may help someone someday...

    If you ever fall down a bit and go towards touching it or getting it down; turn around, leave the room, find a pen, find some paper, and write about your biggest achievement yet. That achievement was turning away and leaving the room, and writing about it until the feeling passed. No idea if it could help though, cos I've not yet been man enough to try it!
