    Welcome and if you stick around here you'll learn from people who have learned the hard way. One day at a time and always remember that nothing is better with a drink. Why that can't sink in for me, I just cannot figure out.
    Thanks for you kind message of support Frances.

    It is Day 6 for me today and so far so good. I had a wobble yesterday, but got through it.

    I cherish every day and today was the first without even thinking about drink. The only time it crossed my mind is when i went into the store room to put something away and there was two bottles of wine in there. I never thought for one moment about drinking them.

    I have lots to do at the moment and that is helping get me through the early days.

    Well aren't you just wonderful @AngelHalo. Straight in there - no nonsense
    My suggestion is the same as @JackieClaire : don't allow yourself to get thirsty or hungry - both triggers in my opinion.
    Also post here every day - it really will make you accountable but also so proud as you clock up the days.

    Keep going !
