I haven't drank for 8 days today. I do feel that the craving is there,but I am feeling very strong this time around. I turned 40 last month, and my promise to myself was that I would quit drinking. I drink almost 5 days a week...several glasses or sometimes a large bottle of wine a night. It has made me gain 15 pounds...my blood pressure is up...my husband and kids have asked me repeatedly to please stop and yet I find myself doing it anyway. We have lots of friends who all drink and seem to keep it under control...but I drink alone most of the time, and they don't. At any rate...I have never even thought about AA until now. Like I said, I decided I was quitting and haven't drank in 8 days...but I have a feeling that when tomorrow rolls around it will be harder in that it is Friday and that in my head at least is "Party Nite" I have been reading what you all are saying about "working the steps"...which must be in this Big Book you are talking about. I am struggling with going to a meeting...and hoping that by just coming to a group like this one I could get the support I need? I am just not sure yet...thanks for taking the time to read this...Julie
