Was out Christmas shopping and started having a craving for a strong mixed drink. It dominated my thoughts. I went as far as getting money to hit a watering hole. Instead of stopping, I drove by. Then proceeded to get something to eat and get refocused. Found an AA meeting nearby.
I accept that I’m an alcoholic and with that I have to accept that these cravings will continue. I came real close tonight. Too close. Not today, alcohol. Not today.
Reset, readjust, and refocus. As many times as needed.
Good redirection my friend. Keep fighting!
Proud of you sir I had many of those headfuck conversations in the past and failed 100% until the day I didn’t ,this is a very important little win.
The contents in your post is why I am apart of Sober Time; you’ve encouraged me tonight @Almosctcool. I shan’t give up…

Well done, we never know when the AV will come but need to be ready
There will be close calls sometimes. You made a great choice and this is a great example for others to follow.
That is fantastic work, taking care of YOU!
It’s the simple things, isn’t it? Good call! And know that it does get easier as we do the work to grow our sobriety.
