I thought I knew what I was doing, but I was mistaken…


I was /am drinking at least a bottle of wine a night.  When I made my drink plan, I allowed that for about a week +, then skipped a couple of days and went down to 3 glasses on drink nights.   I felt so good on no drink days, that I assumed it would be a good idea just to choose to not drink on my next drink night.  Unfortunately, all I could think about was drinking and yes, because I could drink;, I did, but ended up over drinking, every time. You talk about honoring our decisions and how that reinforces the desire to not over drink.  I should have asked from the start…  What kind of drink plan should I make, if I’m used to drinking at least a bottle of wine a night?  I think I got into shame and for some reason, allowing myself to drink 3 glasses instead of 4, seemed indulgent and counter intuitive…  But quite the opposite, I’m finding.  I want and need to start over with a realistic drink plan.  Maybe I had a pollyanna attitude at first, as I’m sure others have.  Thanks for your direction in this area…
