Again, thank you for your kind comments, and sorry – again – for not having replied to each one. I am in a kind of slump. It’s day 15 but it all feels really hard. The dreaded Friday evening passed without any mishap, but I didn’t put together a very good plan to make it nice; I didn’t plan any treats, and I didn’t really enjoy the evening.
I had planned to go to a meeting last week, but I had too much work on my day off and couldn’t make it. This meant I didn’t put much sober work into my week, and thoughts of drinking are still uppermost.
There are a lot of didn’ts in this post. I need to be more positive and get out of this slump, as slumps are dangerous.
