I'm so bummed. I was proud of myself not having a drink for 8 days. So, here I am, day 8 in induction and I have my 3rd drink sitting beside me almost finished. The urge was so great today. My BIL died this morning and I had such a stressful day. I know it is just an excuse. Other people go through this much stress and don't go to alcohol to numb themselves. I also ate 2 handful of nuts with it. I feel so discouraged.

Stress shows its ugly head different ways. Don't get down on yourself, when today is over it is over. Get up the next day refreshed and start again! We all have a slip or two, you just have to understand that you are human. Just don't spend to much time beating yourself up over it. New day...move forward! :hugs:
We all have those days too!! You are not alone in this battle! Good Luck

7 perfect days of induction is nothing to sneeze at. I think you're pretty awesome.
