  • About Me: I love fashion, decorating and wine. I am a widowed mother of two adult children who think I drink too much. I am beginning to see that maybe they are right.
 
  • Now to top it all off, my e-mail has been hacked and is sending Viagra messages to my entire contact list. How embarrassing. Some days it just doesn't seem worth it to get out of bed.

  • I got some of my stuff back. Still haven't gotten my laptop and some jewelry. I had a new lock put on my back fence today. I am struggling with the sobriety thing. I haven't given in but it is hard.

  • My house was broken into yesterday by two sixteen year olds. They got caught, but they managed to get away with some stuff, mainly jewelry. My TV's were in the back yard when the police got there. A neighbor called them. i was at work. Man, do I want a glass of wine.

  • I don't know what I am going to do about my finances. Things are falling apart around me and I am not making any money. I have three separate businesses going and only one of them is producing and that only enough to keep it alive. At least I have a clear head to face the issues.

  • And then I did it again on New Year's eve. I went out with some friends and got talked into a celebratory glass of champagne. That tuned into several glassed and that turned into a hangover. I can do this. I have to do this. No more, no more!!

  • I have spent the last four days telling people that I am not drinking anymore. Boy, the response is not what I expected. Most people are very supportive, but the two people that I go out with often and drank with are not. They say we cannot have fun without drinking and I don't think I will be included in there outings anymore. So sad.

  • I have decided that I can't stay sober if I don't tell people what I am doing. I thought I could just say "No, thank you." and no one would question me. But I see it doesn't work that way. Tomorrow I will begin telling my friends and coworkers that I am not going to drink anymore.

    Several of my posts have gone missing from time to time also. I don't know why. Thought it was maybe my old computer, but now I have a new one.

  • I did not abstain over the holiday. I went to dinner with at an old friend's house and she served wine and I didn't know how to say no. We have eaten out and drank wine together for years and I haven't seen her in awhile and didn't tell her I was sober. I didn't want to go into it at the table so I drank and then I drank all weekend. Now I feel horrible.
