On special occasions

When I tried moderating, “only on special occasions” was one of the things I tried, and it’s amazing how quickly Tuesday becomes a special occasion.

For me, not drinking is the easy, lazy option. There’s no bargaining with “is this a special occasion, can I have a drink?” because I’ve already decided I’m not drinking. The occasion becomes special by virtue of what it is, not whether I can drink at it.

    Again, thank you for sharing. It is helpful to see you write on the topic of the difficulty of trying to maintain a moderated consumption of something that it addictive and *seems* to help in hard times

    We are not alone

    More power to you D!
