Three months is HUGE, childofchaos! I hope you got some mojo from your group's response tonight! I'm sure they celebrated right along with you!

Any amount of sobriety is an accomplishment whether it's a few hours, a few days, months, etc.
It's hard, but achievable if you really put an effort into it and believe that you can do it.

My friend invited this other chick over to his house only which she takes out liquor like f sakes I cannot even drink and their drinking in front of me you know how much of a temptation that is? What a piss off I finally left smelling of cigarette smoke it was ridiculous I wished they hadn't both smoked all they talked about was their mental health issues in front of me and when I said something about something that happened to me he gave me a dirty look like not to give him away it's like for f sakes why doesn't he wanna be honest with her he's always honest with me! Anyway I can't believe he actually said clonazepam keeps him away from codeine!(he is an x meth and heroin addict)

All her stories were about when she did this drunk or when she was high on this or when she had an eating disorder but she just laughed it off!

I am not sure why I am telling this to you all but I was so tempted and it wasn't fair of him to invite me over without asking if it was okay for his friend to be drunk or drinking in front of me....so rude!

Temptation happens, but it is really annoying when someone who should know better is a party to it. Good on you for resisting.

That was a crappy thing to put you through, greentires. Even with over two years in, it sucks that he put you in a situation where temptation knocked at your door. I'm glad you shared what happened...That's a healthy reaction to the unhealthy situation you found yourself in. We both know the advantages of continuous sobriety. Congrats on maintaining!

Day 12 for me.

I was really triggered yesterday as my housemate called in sick to work so she could stay home and drink. She ordered a 26'er of vodka - one of my preferred drinks. I was so tempted to order along with her. Fortunately I had to volunteer down at the Distress Centre last evening, so I had reason not to drink, so I just hibernated in my room until it was time to leave. But it didn't help that the entire apartment smelt like Apple Vodka.

Congrats on Day 12! As I wrote to greentires, it's extremely inconsiderate to create an atmosphere which threatens someone elses' attempts to stay sober. At twelve days, you did a fantastic job of fighting the urge. That's a big victory for you! Since your housemate stayed home just to drink, it sounds like she might have a problem, too. If this continues, & your finances allow, I'd seriously consider changing your living situation. Keep on with the great resolve!
