    Hi Sue don't beat yourself up, it's just half a bottle of wine versus 14 amazing weeks. I've learnt myself this week that we'll probably all make a slip up at some point.

    Put today behind you and focus on how well you've done over the past months.

    Hopefully you can talk to your daughter soon but in the meantime you've got plenty of friends here :-)

    Hi. I'm 14 weeks to and it helps me to know it's not worth giving up for an hour or two of pleasure. Please don't beat yourself up about it. Tomorrow is a new day so stay positive and don't give up. Stay strong...

    Dear Sue,

    Like Angela, I don't think you have "blew" it all!

    On the contrary, I wish I could go for 14 weeks without a glass of wine.  I do not think it is ever happened to me since I turned 21!

    I just hope the cravings are not back the next day and the next day.

    You could do a graph of your daily intake : imagine this flat line for so many weeks. You should be proud. A few days and the line will be flat again.....

    Wishing you all the best.

    Oh Sue, don't beat yourself up.  You have done great, and with that determination which took you through 14 weeks sober, you will be OK.  It's just a slip, a minor setback, be easy on yourself.  I admire you so very much.  I have only managed to halve my nightly drinking, and some nights not even that, so you can imagine how much I would like to be in your shoes. 

    I am so glad you came here and told us.....you don't have to do anything on your own.  I know it's not the same as being able to talk face to face with someone, but we care and we are here for you.

    Keep that chin up....

    Pat

    Slips happen Sue, just get back on the wagon and go again. And keep coming here for support, everybody understands you here. Don't beat yourself up over it because that just makes it worse.

    Congrats on 14 weeks. I wish I could do 4 days. Stress and money issues keep me  from my goals. How are you doing it Sue? Selincro, Campral, Kudzu, WHAT?

    Stay strong, the little things give us an uncanny power over our desires!

    Sue don't look at it as you drunk 1/2 a bottle of wine, you LEFT half a bottle of wine!! That's an achievement , could you have done that before? I know I couldn't

    Keep going you're doing so well

    Lotsa love
