My quit date is not until next month, but I'm trying to get ready for it by cutting down & listening to the audio version of Allen Carr's book. I've been doing really good at cutting down! Went from 15 to 10 effortlessly.
I like to drink. And by like, I mean pink puffy heart love. Today is a one of those rare days (I get one once or 2x a month) where my husband has taken all my kids to his creepy parents house for the day. I left to get groceries & the brakes went out on the car after I was 1/2 hour away from home. No groceries, white knuckles it all the way home. Stressed. Made myself a beautiful cocktail once I got home.
Pretty much instantly lost all motivation to cut down, let alone quit. What do you guys suggest? A girlfriend of mine recently told me that she quit smoking by giving up drinking. She quit the drinking for 9 months just so she could quit the smoking. Is that what I need to do?
