I'm sooo happy to report that after a week long cruise to the carribean, I'M STILL SOBER!!! It was very hard, especially at the beginning. My husband even had the steward take the bottles out of the minibar since I spent a fair amount of time in the room. I parasailed and swam with the dolphins. If I'd drank, all I would have done would be drink, pass out, drink, pass out and never do anything fun.Although everyone else drank in front of me, I only had diet cokes. A total stranger even said" why have just a diet coke when they can make all these cool, beautiful drinks?" I said, "Newly sober". After a long awkward pause, she said, "Well, then a diet coke would be just fine." HA!! I'm so happy right now. My husband even bought me a ring to celebrate my achievement. The others on the cruise with us said they "wish they had the guts" to do what I'm doing. Seeing several people puking, acting like loud obnoxious asses, and barely able to stand on multiple occasions just reinforced my decision. I relaxed, got 3 deep tissue massages, ate wonderful food,slept a lot, got a ton of sun and adventure. This would never have happened drunk.

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
