Failed last night

Last night for some reason I brought a bottle of wine there is no excuse and right now I am hating myself. I had managed a whole 7 days!!! I was gowing to cheat but I got up at 1 am and reset the clock and now I haven’t even made a day. Setting that clock back has made me feel more positive that I can do this

Jeez. … don’t hate your self!! Give your self a kick up the butt and start again… yes it’s disappointing but hey Ho Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your only human… you can do this. You WILL do this. Every second is an achievement.


Are you doing this solo? Or have ya tried AA? Fyi~ I tried solo for 5 years & couldn’t do it. Then I slowly started with AA & this forum which has helped me to just under 2 months. I’ve been slacking in going to any meetings for the last 2 weeks. I know myself well enough that if I don’t make it back to AA in the next 2 days. The weekend will bring an end to my Sobriety. Fyi~ there are others (ang) on this site that have showed U can make it solo which is great. Unfortunately I’m not as strong. Anyways write out a plan of changes your willing to make & learn from the time you achieved.


Thank you so much for replying

What sort of tthings have you got on your plan ?:+1:

18 days sober but struggling through today. :frowning: thanks to your list of suggestions I’m going to start making my plans for tonight before I leave work and am tempted to stop and buy a bottle.

I know that I can do this because I have loved how I have felt the last few weeks. I’m going to hold myself accountable to everyone here and check back in in the morning.

My plan for tonight then is to stop and walk the lake, go home and meal prep for the next few days. Then if I’m still going crazy yoga before bed.

We talk about what we are doing different this time and for me finding this community of supportive people has made all the difference for me.



I made it! It was a rough night but by having a plan and holding myself accountable did the trick. Waking up this morning and knowing I made it through feel so empowering. Have an awesome day everybody and thank you for being there to support me.
