    The best I have done lately is two weeks. It’s the weekends for me as well when I end up going out to clubs and bars with my friends. That’s the only reason I drink when I’m in that environment. When I stay away from those places, I can go pretty long without drinking.

    I am so glad I have found this site.. Tired of relapsing over and over and relying on alcohol.

    I usually relapsed within 16 hours….seriously. for 5 years I quit every night…poured the wine down the drain many times…woke up certain that I wouldn’t drink and by 2:00 o’clock I was itching for a drink. A couple times a year I might get a couple days. I’ve seen it said that its not really relapse in those cases…just taking a break. In all that time the longest I made it was 5 or 6 days…which is why I don’t consider those proper relapses. Were I to drink today it would be a relapse. Thankfully I have no desire to drink these days and with work that will never ever change.

    An old timer might say you haven’t hit bottom yet.

    Dangerous, perverse “wisdom” – best not to count on those “bottoms” for motivation – they tend to have trap doors.

    One can easily get to thinking “well, maybe I haven’t hit bottom yet, and things still haven’t gotten that bad, really, so bottoms up!”

    Things can always get worse, and they will. Until you hit the only real bottom, of course, which is six feet under.
