    I used to think I drank a lot. This board has shown me how little I drink.

    Beer stole my six pack and I’ve never forgiven or forgotten it.

    That’s tough. I prefer just to not have any around. gf did buy some wine last night and offered to get me some but I declined.

    I have liquor and wine sitting around, no temptation. Just can’t keep cold beer in the fridge

    Been dry since the 3rd. I'm fortunate I've never been one to drink alone at home. But it was also never a problem to walk a block to a bar and sit there by myself. Avoiding indoor bars due to the pandemic is helpful in this regard.

    Never got the hang up on drinking alone. Then again I’m an introvert and lived alone for years

    9 days down.

    Coming down with what I hope is only a cold, so temptation will be 0 for the next couple days.

    TooooooBeeeeeeeFaaaaaIiiiiiiiiRrrrrrrrrr I’ve had two drinks a shot and a bourbon with dinner last Saturday. I have a 6 pack that I’ll drink tonight while watching UCLA vs Zona because I can deal with a coup but I hate #Arizona Wildcats with every fiber of my being. I wish I could watch this game sober but I know I can’t. They are worse than ISIS and the GOP mIrite #Arizona State Sun Devils alt

    The worst habit BY FAR that Covid brought back for me was soda. I’m doing a soda per day right now. Shame on, TMB.

    Depending on how much you were drinking, you probably aren't sleeping because of your body adjusting to not having any alcohol. Insomnia is a side effect as are those weird ass dreams. Small part of withdrawals.

    And a week-10 days afterwards is when they kick in. If it is a withdrawal ordeal, it will pass. You don't have to have DTs or the shakes to have withdrawals. But if you were a heavy drinker, this is a strong possibility for why you are not sleeping.

    I’ve been drinking non caffeinated tea at night. I’ve found that plus something relaxing non stimulating, like reading has helped me.
