Excellent news, especially since the increased amount of alcohol in the system leads a lot of people to give in, and not care "in the moment". Way to go saved!

Congratulations on your first week! It's the hardest.

I have a thread updating daily on another forum. I write my thoughts and struggles, or only number of days, which has been a tremendous help. Tried to quit many times before, when I failed, I failed, no big deal, no one has to care. But with the live thread and support from other members, I feel obliged to succeed. Counting to 100 days.

I suggest you update this thread daily, it will help you get through bad days.

Thanks Matrix. I will be updating daily. Like I said, my reward goal (sorry, I am weird: I prefere traviling and seeing new things, trying new foods and beers as opposed to sports, which I really hate) is doing a short el salvador trip to do this volcano climb. Did it in 2010, went down a 2 mile hill, across a lava field (extinct of course) and started to climb the volcano. I said screw this (because of the 2 mile uphill climb going back) and just went back. This time I hope to do the whole thing.

Today (hopefully: 60 minutes on the stair machine and some bench press and flies).

Also, if you are trying to quit (IMO), you need some type of sensory hit occasionally. I have the parents talked into trying thai food on wed evening. they will get mild and I will get blow your head off. Also Mints help or some type of stronger tasting lozenge.

I wish to God that there were no troubles in Mexico right now. Really inexpensive to go there, lots to do, friendly people, great food.

I like jalapenos and basically all peppers. You do build tolerance after awhile. Are buffalo wings popular in Australia?

There's so many strange animals in Australia, I would not be surprised if buffaloes had wings.

I had an older friend that substituted those little corn candies for cigarettes. That was long ago, before we realized that sugar was poison. It worked for him though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candy_corn

I don't know about buffalo wings, Saved sorry, is that a special cut or something? I haven't heard of them, I only buy meat for the dogs so don't really know.
I will have to try the jalapeno's again, and try and get used to them.
