      Happy July 1st, too!

      I am grateful that today has been an AF day for me, hope to rack up more AF days during July.

      TMH, thanks for the WTG on my success at not drinking at home. It pleases me immensely that I have accomplished that, with my little strategies I outlined last month...and I think it is what has helped my liver and my rosacea!

      However, I must confess that I do not think I could pull it off with house guests who participate in the traditional "cocktail hour." ... Talk about triggers...I love actually having guests, but being the hostess sets off my "perfectionist" tendencies, and consequent anxiety!

      As you said, Here's to a good month for all of us!

      TMH,

      If there is a store called Sweet Bay in your part of FL, they carry a non-alcoholic unsugared fizzy drink called "Sweet Inspirations," which comes in a tall bottle, in several flavors...my husband and I really like the Blood Orange flavor, for AL-free "grown-up" drinks on the lanai in the afternoons..Publix does NOT carry it. The Watermelon, I think it was, is nice, too. FF

      Hey, FF, thanks for that info! We do have a Sweet Bay, not real close, but that's ok. Today's list includes groc shopping - maybe I'll just go there. In fact, sure I will. You hit it on the head re: FL lifestyle. Going to go write it on my list now. Thanks!!

      It is actually called "Taste of Inspirations". Dumb name. Hope you like it. FF

      Hi everybody! Please c/i, let us know how you are doing. Even if you choose to drink everyday or couple times a week - it's whatever moderation means to you.

      FF - found the Taste of Inspirations. They only had 2 flavors SF - the blood orange and lemonade. I bought both but have not tried them yet.

      DG - good job on 1st 2 days AF. Me too. It's so early yet but I feel so less anxious; it's as though I took the option off the table so I don't obsess over it. I love going to bed totally sober, yes, sleep is a little more difficult but worth it, and looking forward to that 1st cup of coffee in the a.m.

      Off to play golf. Gotta love retirement.

      Boy, DG and TMH, it wasn't too long ago that 2 days AF seemed like an impossible dream to me...I am ecstatic that now it actually IS something I can achieve!

      So, I second DGs "woot" on a great start to the month of July! MWO and the encouragement of folks like you guys have helped me so much in "sneaking up" on my goal of eliminating this obsession from my psyche...so, thanks, guys. FF

      Fabulous start to July all,

      I haven't been here for a few days, I've been reading the book I mentioned in the June Mod thread. It's good, though I don't think it's really convinced me to put away the drink forever - so strong is the conditioning and brainwashing...and fear I'm not giving up though.

      Started to really cut down last night, I had one & a bit ciders, I'm watering them down with soda, and I'm happy to do this - I don't feel deprived, which is the conditioning I need to get rid of.

      Glad to hear you are all doing so well, I wish we had those AL free drinks here in Oz, I guess if I had a really good look, I could find something here. Mostly the Al free stuff here is pretty ghastly, though I think as time goes on, we'll follow on from the US as we usually do.

      I know what you mean ff, two days af is pretty huge for me too :l

      Tmh how are you going? are you on day 4 now?

      trix, gosh sticking to 1 or 2 ciders in a night is huge. I don't think I could it

      so something that happened today is me and dh decided to take the dogs for walk around the block, all good, except dh was out the door while i was still putting on my shoes and I rushed off after him and forgot to take some poop bags. So we get down the street and turn a corner and my dogs start sniffing around in this bit off hellstrip which is like no mans land, it's not at the front of a house and is next to a full height fence (I don't let my dogs wander onto people's gardens in case they pee) and one of my dogs drops a bomb and I'm bagless.

      Next thing the guy who's lives in the house on the other side of the fence suddenly appears out of nowhere, and he's pissed, starts ranting and raving about how he's sick of dog **** etc, and is being really aggressive. I was annoyed at his tone but figured I'd just deal with it then and there. so I said to him "have you got a bag?" and he just takes an attitude and says "NO! I DON'T have a bag!" just being a jerk, so I said "you don't have a bag?" (I mean the guy lives right there, and if he wants me to pick it up, I just need a damn bag!) and again he's really arrogant and says "I DON'T have a bag" and then just starts going off again. By this time his attitude is just pissing me off, and I cut him off and pretty aggressively said "Listen, if you've got a bag I'll pick it up, otherwise I'll have to go home first". He finally (begrudgingly) goes off to get a bag, and as he's walking away he starts spouting out more stuff , I'm shouting back at him, it was getting REALLY heated by this time, my blood was boiling at this aggressive jerk, so DH sent me on ahead with the dogs before I had an aneurism, while he hung around and waited for the guy to come back. But why do people have to be such @ssholes about stuff? I mean I totally get where the guy is coming from because even at the dog park we use where there are baggie dispensers everywhere, some people don't pick up their dog's poop, but would it kill some people to just talk to you like a normal person instead of being an arrogant aggressive ass? i was seriously pissed off by the time I got home, and cracked open a drink to calm down.
