Q: When is it OK to drink alcohol early in your quit?
A: NEVER! In the first five months of your quit, it needs to be your #1 priority. If you absolutely MUST drink, limit yourself to ONE! You don't really know what your tipping point will be (the point at which your addictive mind tells you it's OK to have 'just one' and you listen to it!)
It's just not worth taking a chance. A quit is a terrible thing to lose!
