      Hi Nest!
      Checking in on day 6? Wow! Day 6!
      Lav, so glad it was a good craft fair!
      That’s sad about the lady who keeps drinking and is so sick.

      We went to church today and did a little bit of shopping. Then came home and worked outside awhile.
      I’m cooking chicken fried steak tonight with mashed potatoes for the fam.

      Hope everyone is doing good today! Xoxo
      Day 1 again 11/5/19
      Goal 1: 7 days
      Goal 2: 14 days
      Goal 3: 21 days
      Goal 4: 30 days
      One day at a time.

      Re: Newbies Nest

      Just checking in one more time today..
      The dinner went well but I was very glad that I'd thought ahead of time of what I was going to say/how I was going to act. Sort of subconsciously I think, as I was walking to the restaurant I was saying under my breath, I don't drink, I don't drink, I'm taking a break from drinking, I've had a headache all day, my co workers and I are having a no alcohol challenge..and on and on. When I got there, the Italians were already seated.. so they were the first I told as they ordered champagne.. then after my friends arrived and they all had their drinks we toasted.. the woman from Napoli said, no, we can't toast to water..She comes from an old school family and apparently they toast to any other drink, non alcoholic or not.. but not water. The waiter was standing there and brought me a sparkling juice.. then when they ordered wine they poured me a glass..? I let it sit next to me until the woman from Napoli had finished 2 glasses and the bottle was empty, then gave her mine. Then they ordered another bottle.
      I'll say, if I'd been feeling insecure about being around alcohol, I wouldn't have gone out to eat in the first place.. but I hadn't imagined I might be confronted with it more than once.
      The food was delicious.. I wasn't a great conversationalist.. but it was generally a bit awkward. Anyway, I wasn't sad to leave and was sooooo happy to have stuck by my guns.. and not to have felt left out or like I was missing out on something.
      Had to share that with all of you, since you are with me in spirit a lot of the time.
      xx

      Sitting there with that glass meant for you and not touching it is SO IMPRESSIVE.

      Afternoon nesters

      Pauly, Carl looks like an angel bless him. My daughter bought him a pair of overalls and he looks so damn cute and then he wants to chew your hand. I dont think there is any point in glossing over the truth with regards to people drinking, though we dont need to be cruel in our words. We arent the ones that make people not post, they just arent ready to accept they cant drink or the truth of what drinking does. You can normally pick the ones that are around for the long haul and as they say persistence pays off eventually! We always see patients with nerve damage or seizures due to alcohol consumption, its very sad but i always told myself it would never happen to me. I must have thought i was special.

      LC, those firsts are very important to remember. If you have done it once you can keep doing it and it just becomes second nature not to drink. Id prefer a good coffee with good company.

      Hey G, hows it going?

      Pav, i loved Broadchurch, i love the English crimes shows.

      Today my cousin and daughter and i went for coffee and then to the shops. carl broke both lugs off my reading glasses and they are going to replace them so that is good. i have a napper cousin so thats a bonus. The new supplements i am on are working wonders so i am feeling human again. Life is good.

      take care and waves to all. xx

      Hi, All:

      WAY TO GO, LC! That is impressive and like Lav says, it just gets easier.

      Ava - Carl is too cute. How does he like his overalls? Does he get annoyed in clothes? What other British crime dramas do you like??

      Went to an 80th birthday party yesterday with many generations. I think a lot of people were drinking but I wasn't tempted at all. I was never a good day drinker - always just made me tired and depending on the party I always overdid. There were a few people who were pretty "happy" by the end of the party.

      We have today off - in honor of veterans day here. There's not as much done in public for soldiers as there is on memorial day, at least not around here. I know there are places that have parades. Originally it was armistice day for the end of WW1. It IS nice to have a day off work for sure, followed by a four day work week.

      Happy SOBER Monday.

      Pav
