So update about my neighborhood meet n greet last night. My hubby and I went to the dinner/party and neither of us drank. I had water, in fact. Not even a mocktail. I even told a few people I was doing a Dry January and one woman said, "I need to do that too"... It wasn't hard at all to not drink and it felt so good when we got home to wash my face and get in bed without a buzz.

So I went to my neighborhood liquor store today. I was asked where I had been and where the rest of me was. I replied with my usual "yeah, I have lost a little weight" and was immediately corrected because I have lost so much I can't get away with saying that anymore.
My personal moderation plan has been very successful. I am not a weekly or even a monthly drinker anymore. I have 2 nights planned in the next 30 days and then I have no idea when I will drink again.
I have gotten to a place now where I have almost forgotten that was part of my life. I really do not think about it much at all unless I have something planned for the near future.
My 1 year anniversary for weight loss and moderation is Feb 15th. Last year at this time I was still fairly soaked. What a difference a year can make.

For those of you with partners who are not on board with AF, or are actively trying to tempt you/guilt you, stay strong! Most people are uncomfortable with their loved ones making positive changes (happens frequently with weight loss and other life improvements). They aren’t trying to be jerks, it’s just a function of their own issues. Try to understand where they are coming from, but your ultimate commitment is to yourself. Stay strong!
