I was supposed to be giving up for two weeks after a hideous binge last Saturday. Did OK in the week as I very rarely drink then anyway. Sis came round with a btle of wine last night and I had a glass. Opened a blt tonight so obviously couldn't take a dry weekend.
Don't give it up. But you don't have to make a pig of yourself either. I gave up smoking last year and at the same time I had some other horrible stuff going on I started drinking every night, sometimes a bottle of wine a day. I felt like crap, and it got so expensive. I realised that the horrible stuff was still there and have cut it down to 1 bottle, just at the weekend. I enjoy it more now and I have a clearer head to deal with the bad stuff.
