      Hi Guapo,

      I know what you mean about boozy Brits, when I go abroad I tend to stay away from boozy Brits abroad, they're an embarrassment. You don't get that in other countries as much. The French and Spanish make a meal last for hours and take it easy with the alcohol it's more of a family meal.

      It's not what you drink, it's how much!

      Something good happened to me yesterday. Unfortunately, I was drinking, and quite a bit and not feeling it. Nothing bad happened, and I think it was kind of good I was drinking because it told me something about the other person.

      I started dating this girl, who honestly, I wasn't sure I even wanted to go out with. We've been out four times I think, and last night, it's kind of obvious this may be leading somewhere. Why it's weird now...

      1.) She doesn't drink. I remember on our second date, as I was drinking a glass of wine, she told me that. I looked at her and said, "You know, I'm actually glad you don't. Truth be told, I'm usually a lot happier when I don't"

      2.) She looks good, but very understated, which is usually not what I got for, but I do see things that our physically attractive. I like the way she hides what great shape she looks like she's in.

      3.) She's kind of granola, and liberal...I mean Vegan, and forget about Obama, I wouldn't be surprised if she voted for Ralph Nadar.... I keep quiet I voted for W., twice.

      Ok, so last night we were out to dinner. I ran a lot yesterday and ate good, and sometime, for some reason, that boosts my tolerance to wine. ?? I sometimes will feel a little crappy the next day though. Anyway, not only does she not drink, she told me she's in the program....so she's never going to be a bad influence on me. We were then playing this game where you ask a bunch of questions to each other and they get deeper and deeper and then you have to stare at each other for 4 mins.... well I remember there were a few I said, "you're not going to like to answer." But she wasn't judgmental about it..she even kind of understood....Oh, and she was ok, that I was guzzling down wine last night. not that I want to make that a new habit, but she wasn't judgmental, and I'm sure if I was misbehaving she would have said something...

      So then the four minute stare, which was eerily intoxicating. I notice she looked like she was about to cry, and I'm thinking I look smooth, and saying go myself, "I definitely go this girl..." The four minutes went quicker than we both thought, and we talked about it. I told her she looked like she was about to cry at one moment, and she said, and this freaked me out, "because I thought you were, you're right eye looked very...well, sad..." it was like peering into someone's soul...

      Anyway, not sure why I am sharing this. I did drink more than I wanted to last night, so that was kind of a failure, if anything, it makes me NOT want to drink....I guess... we shall see...

      Have been away for too long

      Hi Nonamegirl,
      Like you, I have been gone from the community for a long time. So long in fact, that it has changed quite a bit and I feel brand new. So many beautiful old posts that I have no idea where they went! Well, I will take a look around another day. Just wanted to say hello and see how my old friends were doing and who may still be posting that I know. Things are going well for me. So well in the mod world that I wasn't really feeling the need to post here but as you said, we are like family in a weird way and I started to miss my old posting buddies.

      Hugs,
      Eve11

      NotHappy...I have to say that I agree with the last two sentences of paragraph three. I have been moderating for many years now and only recently quit coming here. We don't have the tight knit bond that a lot of abstainers do as we usually don't need to post daily or even weekly so sometimes it makes it easier to fall away than someone who is trying to abstain and needing a lot of support. In the past I admit I have had times of struggling with trying to maintain my moderation goals and have found myself coming here more often. Recently however, I have been doing so well that I just found myself not inspired to come as I have shared a ton of thoughts, posts, and blogs, and in some ways it felt like I was just rehashing everything and not bringing anything new to the table. One does get emotionally connected to the strangers who become our online posting friends however and I have recently found myself missing everyone so wanted to check things out. The board changed a lot so am getting reaquainted. Welcome and look around. You can look up posts I have started by clicking on my naming and looking for threads I have started and you'll likely find some answers to your question.

      Hugs,
      Eve11

      I actually do have something to post. I had been modding, especially since the girl I'm dating doesn't drink. However, I had a strange slip up last night. I went in to have a lite dinner and tow glasses of wine somewhere, it was more than that and then another bar. I was wondering why I did that....

      I feel ok today, I didn't do anything bad and I didn't have the over anxiety I usually get when these things happen. I think the meditating and hypnosis is working...things are clearer, I wouldn't say perfect, but clear.

      First, I am turning 40 next week and I am not looking forward to it. So many things happened to me in the last decade, some of the best and definitely some of the worst, that I really do not want to know what the next decade will bring. I think that is why I slipped. The other times I slip is with grad school friends and it is usually one night only, but this time has me thinking, I am not sure things are as clear as I thought they were.

      We had a big snow storm in NYC a few days ago. The girl I am dating stayed with me, and brought her dog. She (the girl) ended up being quite frisky. I found myself 1/2 into it, most of the time. I found myself not really wanting to kiss her, just wanting too...well.... I could tell she was sensing this... She's not the type of girl I am used to going out with. She looks like a librarian, she is very sweet. She is in the Program so she doesn't drink. She is also quite liberal. She was complaining a little bit, because I was so lackadaisical, nothing really overwhelming, I could tell she was a little upset. She is very sweet. Well, anyway, the last night, I fell asleep watching TV on the couch when she went off to bed. I eventually woke up and went to the bedroom. She was up and on her phone texting or emailing. I said, "What's going?" She said, "Eh, not much." A few moments passed and she finally said, "I am not feeling comfortable here anymore. I feel like you don't really want me here. Why don't you want to have sex with me? I'm actually looking for a car to take me home."

      Now, this freaked me out, not because of the obvious, it freaked me out because it sounded like my ex-wife all over again! I was like, "Oh crap, not this again!" I literally just started dating this girl. I told her going home was crazy, it was late and it's the aftermath of a blizzard. I had an early morning meeting the next day, at my new office (firms merged) and I really DID NOT need this stress.

      We talked for a little while. We eventually had sex and everything was fine. I saw her yesterday and she seemed in good spirits. What really upset me was, I was thinking, "Oh crap, here I am upsetting someone, hurting them, because of my own internal crap!"

      Anyway, maybe that is why I slipped. The combo of that and my looming birthday. I told myself I am going to have an AL Feb. goal. We shall see.

      Best,

      j.
