    Re: today is my birthday - not celebrating with a glass of w

    Happy Happy Birthday Lisa a day late! And welcome to MWO! I haven't shared this site with anyone really either. I am about to turn 43 myself. You are doing a great thing for yourself here. Keep that in mind when the blues start to take over! Keep pushing on!

    today is my birthday - not celebrating with a glass of wine

    Re: today is my birthday - not celebrating with a glass of w

    My birthday is today...turning 41...very odd to think of not celebrating with my former best friend, Mr. Chardonnay. I am on Day 9 but on only day 4 AF. I went out to dinner with a friend last night and she almost fell out of her chair when I ordered soda water with a lime. I told her I couldn't talk about it yet but assured her there was nothing "wrong" with me. Can't quite admit to anyone that there really is something wrong with me. I asked her to give me a month and then we could talk. I think this will be the first time in 20 years (except the one year I was pregnant) that I will probably remember my birthday night. How odd....

    happy bday sober girls. i will toast you with a cup of tea. and who knows i might go get a goodie or something sweet in your honor. tis something to not bring it in w/mr chardonnay. but a good something. last nite as i was on my third gingerale someone would say aren't you drinking? uh yeah, gingerale. hahaha or my girlfriend said you seem distant. no uh just not drunk like everyone else. i realized at her bday party that as most of them were drunk i would have been right there with them and continuing but you know what i came home early and that felt really good to be responsible. first ever. so welcome to a whole new you. we celebrate you bday boys and girls in your 40's even.

    Re: today is my birthday - not celebrating with a glass of w

    Boy I needed to read all those posts today!
    I had a tough week - I manage the acct dept for a company and we had an external and internal audit going on all this week. Driving home I almost talked myself into drinking tonight.....but forget it.
    I'm inspired again by your stories and support. No wine for me tonight- that will be 11 days no drinking!
    I've been invited out for drinks tomorrow night with work friends. I was thinking of just having one drink but now I think I just won't. I will get questions I'm sure, but I think I want to feel happy and proud of myself even more than having that one drink. Plus, I am a little afraid if I have one drink I may stop by and pick up a bottle of wine on the way home.
    Thanks everyone...what a great group this is!
    Lisa
