Friday night is a much better night for a drinking thread than Wednesday.

For those who were there Wednesday night, don't worry about me. I'm having a few sips of Cabernet, and no vodka!...

What's everyone drinking tonight?...

1. Pepsi again because I'm such a procrastinator.

However, I do see a shot of cherry brandy in my near-term future.

4. Cherry Brandy!

Nice!

My favorite liqueur is peppermint schnapps, but whatever works for you...

6. Peppermint schnapps was my first hangover.

To quote Chef from South Park, "There's a time and a place for everything, and it's called college," A friend and I split a fifth one Friday night and I definitely paid for it on Saturday morning.

I also had some apricot brandy awhile ago and found it delicious.

2. I'm not drinking anything at the moment, my dear Aristus!

Tomorrow I must get up bright and early (for me!) and get myself over to a poetry workshop. I'm looking forward to it a lot.

I need to sleep well, and alcohol interferes with that, for me.

I'm glad you're having a good night!

21. i'm formulating my next plan of attack

i think the vapor pen was just too close to real cigs for me, so i'm going to try either the patch and chewing the world's supply of gum or talking to my head doc about meds that can help but won't interact with everything i'm taking now. i'll get myself squared away and then start working on the husband to quit again, too.

22. The patches worked for me...

My doc at the VA got me thirty days of patches and she told me it's like taking antibiotics... use all the patches for the entire thirty days. Recognize your triggers and distract yourself. Take notice of your physical changes like how your chest opens up, your nose is more sensitive, and (for me) how you can belly laugh without it turning into a coughing fit,
One more thing and then I'll shut up. Quit because you want to. Support your husband in his journey but he has to take the first step alone. My sister and I quit together and she gave up but I stood firm because I wouldn't be thwarted in my journey to be smoke free. I haven't touched tobacco since February and I never will again.
I rootin' for you, Fizz. JUST DO IT.

14. Coffee

But if I'm up late and get hungry I can pour a glass of Merlot to go with a tray of sliced roast beef, pepperoni, and pepper jack and smoked gouda cheeses with club crackers.

24. It WAS delicious!

Just discussing it here was enough to make me go to the kitchen and fix my tray and open the Merlot.

I'd already had a dinner of macaroni salad and milk, and the cold cuts, cheese and Merlot really hit the spot.

In fact, it was so good that I'm doing the same for dinner tonight.

Oh, and I also found that I still had some port wine spreadable cheddar to round out my cheeses. I probably should buy a lottey ticket.

19. Ginger ale

I'm still on a health kick for the next month. No alcohol, vegan diet, exercising everyday, no caffeine, sleeping 7-8 hours a night, etc.

If I survive this month, I'm definitely having a margarita or two. I hope you enjoyed your cabernet.

20. It was Harpoon Octoberfest

I love trying the Marzen beers that come out in the fall. This one's pretty good but not quite as good as the Hooker.
