30 days --where's my chip?
Day 30 here. I'm tempted to go to an AA meeting just to get my chip but I don't know where any chip meeting is on Tuesdays.
I haven't returned to AA meetings yet. The antabuse is working so well, plus my email support lists and recovery blogs, that I haven't felt the need to add meetings yet. I hate leaving home at night to go to them. I will if things looks slippery though.
Made it through the holiday weekend okay. I did have more cravings and drinking thoughts than I've been having. Partly due to associations--finish gardening, pour a drink kind of thing.
It didn't help that we had people over for dinner. A couple of the guests got a buzz on and when you don't have one going yourself it can be a bit of a drag. I'd rather not entertain like this but my husband wants to. We did owe a few social invites and for the most part I don't think anyone even realized I wasn't drinking until my 10 year old piped up that "mom can't drink alcohol anymore" when I was putting a carafe of seltzer on the table. They were pretty much concentrating on getting their own buzz going.
I got a huge amount of gardening done this weekend and also took in the new Star Wars movie with the kids. The movie is way serious. I loved the humor of the original Star Wars myself but then I'm an old lady, what can I say. The kids loved it.
