having a drink tonight!

Right, im on day 9 and i need a drink!! Im really apprehensive of having any alcohol, have totally avoided it up to now but a friend (who smokes) is coming round later with a bottle of wine. Im ready to take on the challenge but worried a little drinkie will lower my defences and make cravings even harder than they usually are. 'dont have a drink then' i hear you say, but im determined to have a good social time without sticking a fag in my gob, scared too though.....

Hey

Well done on 9 Days.

I faced the drinking situation last weekend. Friday, the first night, i was totally miserable, felt uncomfortable etc. But strangely the more i drank the less i felt this way!

The following day, I had a birthday. Was a lot easier. Think the first night helped big time. I went out once this week for a pint and again, it was easier than the saturday.

Expect it to be tough tonight, but you will have to face it at somepoint!

Good luck

Hi Helen,

Well done on 9 days, does the no smoking in doors rule apply at your house? If so when your mate goes outside just pour yourself another drink sit back & relax in the warmth!!
