    I am Dawn. My ongoing goal is 16-20 AF days per month. I was a daily drinker when I began on this thread in November of 2018.

    Diary style is how I keep track.


    Tuesday March 08 - AF - Working a split Wednesday, may have a couple of drinks after that...in the tub watching HGTV. We'll see.
    Wednesday March 09 - 2 drinks. Planned AF for Thursday
    Thursday March 10 - AF - Planned drinks over the weekend.

    Rolling total: 8 AF days out of 10 days

    THANK YOU MFP for getting rid of the disagree button.

    I had always thought it was a terrible idea to have a button that would not be a supportive feature in a community where people need incouragement, not negativity.

    😇🥰

    Same.

    Such a pointless feature, and I often saw it really set people off.

    Big wave back to you, @MissMay! I'm also impressed with DH efforts, @Lilylady3k. I hope he learns a lot in the process.

    Watched my 2 favorite basketball teams (DD & my alma maters) win very close, exciting games last night, and felt the excitement of March Madness descend on our house. Well, on me. DH got bored after the first game. :D Also tried out my AF tequila purchase from a couple weeks ago, and it was very interesting. Definite tequila aroma/flavor on the front end with a capsicum kick on the back end. Very clever and inventive. I poured it over crushed ice with fresca and hibiscus tea left over from jamaica enchiladas I made earlier in the week. It made a vibrant red interesting drink. And 0 calories so I didn't feel guilty having 3. :p

    Friday March 11 - 2 drinks - Worked late, had a couple of nice drinks in the tub : - )
    Saturday March 12 - Planning drinks. Spent a big chunk of the day doing paperwork, about to go and move 1/2 of the front porch, sweep, mop, clean furniture, put the curtains back up that the wind blew down. Planning a couple of drinks after that and some HGTV.

    Rolling total: 8 AF days out of 12 days

    DH bought ONLY 1 bottle of wine to go with the supreme pizza bowl recipe (not crust) this evening. I was so happy to see him buy 1 not 6 bottles!!!

    2 glasses of wine.

    March accountability: 9 days AF
    Alcohol: 3 days (6 drinks)
    Goal: Limit 1-2 glasses per day; 12-16 AF days per month. Aim to drink no more than 2 nights in a row.

    👋 hello back to ya @ahoy_m8. So was that one of the Lyres spirits that you made your drinks with? I see since September they have new flavors. YUM.

    Tonight I did indulge in two rum and root beer cocktails. Getting all crazy and wild up here on the East Coast 🤣.

    Remember that “woo” button? That confused me the most. I thought it meant “woo hoo! Awesome” and it turns out… it doesn’t! 😳
