    Excited to come in to work this morning to see a gift of chocolate from a coworker sitting on my desk. Then I noticed it was brandy-filled chocolate. Ugh! Glad I read the packaging before I dove into it! I successfully traded another coworker for his hazelnut flavored truffles instead. Yum!

    Moral of the story, always be aware! Protect your quit!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Well done Elvis! You never know what might trigger a relapse so why risk it?

    On a trip to the Caribbean a couple of years ago, I ordered a non-alcoholic pina colada. I could smell the rum in it before it was put in front of me. I asked the server why there was rum in my drink, she smiled and said she didn’t think there was but would check with the bartender. Yup. There was rum in it.

    I don’t know what ended that quit but at least it wasn’t that particular pina colada!

    Re: 100 Day Club members/Maintenance Thread

    It is smart to check, Elvis - great that you read the label - and it's fortunate the rum had a recognizable odor, QW! But at some point, I don't think we should beat ourselves up (or restart a day count) if we inadvertently and innocently consume a bit of alcohol. Once we're no longer physically addicted, it is a mental game and our intent matters. I've been in social situations where, after we've already eaten, someone mentions that there was wine in the stew or amaretto in marmalade. I wouldn't have chosen these dishes if I'd known about that but in any case, I didn't develop any cravings or other ill effects - perhaps because the alcohol had been cooked off or perhaps because I was unaware that I was consuming it and wasn't looking for trouble. It concerned me much more when a few years ago, I tried to replicate my drinking experience using dealchoholized wine. Of course it didn't work without the drug in there (and in fact, tasted gross) but what worried me was that I wanted to feel like drinking used to make me feel (or not feel, to tell the truth). I immediately vowed not to mess with the fake stuff - because unlike accidental ingestion, that messed with my head!

    No sugar. I'll still cook with wine it doesn't trouble me in the least. I've had a "near beer" mostly when well meaning friends have served it. No troubled by that as well. Had to laugh thinking back when I tried AF wine. My brain screamed at my mouth to get it out now! Horrendous. ...and yes do check those drinks. Ive had people hand me alcohol, some innocently and others not so innocently.

    Re: 100 Day Club members/Maintenance Thread

    It seems to be an individual decision. I have two small bottles of white wine in a cupboard for cooking. I can't stand cooking wine in recipes. Those bottles have been there for a few months. I forget about them until I open that particular cupboard.

    Next time I make lemon chicken I will use one and will ensure I cook the alcohol out.

    For some of my close friends, having alcohol in their house is a big no, no. They don't want to take the risk. For others, cooking with wine is not an option.

    I have been blessed by God to lose the obsession of alcohol. It took months of work, prayers, meditation, etc. I finally achieved it and would not do anything to bring that obsession back into my life.

    Whatever it takes...
