is being able to be around drinkers and not drink. i don’t drink a lot, and no longer go to parties or bars and don’t buy alcohol. but i am a lot of times over at mom and dad’s and they offer me a glass of wine, and i have no willpower to say no. im thinking if i can just quit for a couple years, a glass of wine will be something i no longer want and will be easy to turn down.
mom and dad never drank growing up, but ever since their trip to italy they have started wine once a week. with weed it helped that i was never around the stuff when i decided to quit, so that made it easy. now almost 7 years have passed without smoking and it’s not something i even want anymore. i think the same thing would be true of alcohol, but i just can’t get away from it.
i just had a conversation with mom and dad, and told them that if they quit, it would make it much easier for me to quit drinking. in the meantime, i am going to have to have more will power and say no when offered a glass. its been 2 weeks since my last glass of wine, because it hasn’t been offered to me in that time. wish me strength and willpower!
