Running from Wine, Day 1….again!

So, I am 41 years old and have been drinking since I was 15 years old.  Wine has been so much a part of my life, my way of making it through the tough times, celebrating the good times and just passing the time.  My way of dealing with the shit in my life and my way of coping with everything and anything.  It has to stop….I can drink up to two bottles of Chardonnay a night and not many “off” days to add up, certainly not more that 5-6 in a row!  I have been trying this for such a long time and have all the tools and ideas of how to stop, It just isn’t “clicking”.  So, I am trying something different and starting a blog….today (while I’m thinking about a big cold glass of Chardonnay, which I feel I deserve since I just completed my 1st 5K run today!!!!! I don’t know if anyone will ever read this, but it’s something different and I need to be held accountable.  Will I succeed?  I hope so, I want this desperately but am no different today than last night which involved wine.  It’s 6:00 pm here so only 3 hours to go until I can go to bed, sober hopefully and start my day 2!  Wish me luck….I’m going to need it!
