Making it through the weekend

Coming up on the weekend again. I do pretty well during the week, I work alot so that keeps me very busy. The weekend comes, and that has always been my time to drink. How does everyone make it through?

Yes, same problem here…

I do like to build things, I have plans to do some of that this weekend. The last time I quit drinking, I was a maniac. Worked constantly, and physical outside work on the weekends for friends, family, you name it. I enjoy that, I just don’t want to obviously be compensating I guess. Everybody knew last time that I quit, this time around I have kept it kinda quiet except for the wife and some close family. I don’t want the sad eyes and awkward conversation this time. I don’t want people changing what they do to accommodate the changes I’m trying to make.
