Yesterday was an exhausting day for me, because I had a big argument with my wife over some chores that we were supposed to do together, but she stopped doing her part, as soon as her aunt and friend showed up.
When I have arguments with her over stupid things, that are simply common sense, the anger that I feel makes me want to drink. But what makes it worse is, that even though she knows that she’s 100% wrong, instead of apologizing like I do when I make a mistake, she looks for excuses to justify her actions. And that right there, makes me want to drink even more. I love her to death, but sometimes she pushes my buttons. But I’m glad that I didn’t drink, and because of that, today is my eighteenth sober day.
Being a weekend binge drinking alcoholic, today I’m happy to say that this is my second sober weekend and I feel great. When it comes to counting days, today is my seventeenth day without drinking. Since I’m not a daily drinker, I really don’t miss alcohol, except for some weekends, when I get a few urges. But that has to do with an old bad habit, than my body needing alcohol to function.
The one trick that I use on the weekends to keep my crazy mind away from thinking about alcohol, is to keep myself busy. In fact, my wife knows this, and she does everything that she can, to keep me busy, but sometimes she overdoes it. There have been weekends, when as soon as I get home from shopping with her, I go to sleep. Don’t get me wrong, I like it… but damn!
Hoping to hear from you soon.
