Last night was the first time I'd gone there since making my decision not to drink. It was harder than I thought it would be. I kept seeing signs for new kinds of beers, specials on beers I like, etc. But I did it. I ordered sprite and stuck with it. It would probably be a lot easier if I just took myself out of the environment in which I'm accustomed to drinking, but I'm strong enough to resist even when I'm there.
It was hard, and it will be hard next week, and it will always be hard, but every time I do it it will get a little bit easier and every time I do it I'll build a little more confidence in myself that I can stick to it. I'm pleased.
