In 17 days I've had 4 drinks. Averaging 5 per day I could have had at least 85, to 100! 3 of those 4, I drank to relieve anxiety and mania. I think that's awesome progress for me. I'm not an AA'er so I'm well on my way to being a person who's learning to live without alcohol. I used booze, since I was 12, for medicine for my bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder, and to help me be social. I am having good results being social without the beer around certain people I'm comfortable with. I'm not however, going to my bf, best friend's birthday party. All will be drunk and I'm not going there! Lot's of people I don't know or am not comfortable around so it's not the place for me!
