Hi MM’ers! Happy Monday! I have to tell you all about my 1st amazing week with MM.
I started on 3/19/17. Ended up doing 4 ABS that week, plus remaining 3 days by the book. I was amazed at myself! Then last nite, I knew I wanted to drink my wine, started with the measured glass before dinner. The hubster was cooking that nite. He had a little too many wines, I could see where the evening might be heading. Due to the alcohol I knew something might set him off and he would end up saying some not so very nice things to me. Which at times then makes me want to drink more, just to deal with. So, I tried the slowing down with the drinks to 1 per hour. But, didn’t make the hour. Only like 45 mins., then had another. Then 30 mins and another. All measured. Well, we had dinner. I tried to tred lightly with him, as not to set him off. Only 1 nasty comment. I dealt with it. I cleaned up dishes, he went to his chair, fell asleep immediately, which was good, so I didn’t have to deal with any more comments. Was able to switch to water for the rest of the evening. Was so proud of myself that I only had the 3 drinks. I couldn’t have done it without MM and reading all your posts! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know every week won’t be this easy. Especially getting together with friend’s, parties, etc. But I look forward to seeing if I can do it there also. I am sure there will be “slips”, but if there are, I feel I can pick myself up the next day, learn from the prior day and move on and try again. Thank you for being there. Have a good week.
