Thanks for the link :)
I already turned down a happy hour. Everyone is convinced that I am pregnant. sigh.
My partner says he will help me moderate myself, so that is good. But he is a bit of an enabler, so we will see.
I think this is really cool that everybody in this thread is coming together to talk about this so frankly. I want to remind you all that you are STRONG and you don't owe anybody a forkin' explanation because it is YOUR body and YOUR life. Hopefully, when you feel better, you can look back and think that alcohol and such are trivial things to you and you can concentrate on those which are not to you because you found more meaning in them. I wish you all the best of luck and I send my support.
