Just a quick update of alcoholism chat. Jane did well today. She stayed off the dreaded booze. She even went for a run after coming back from work and she started work at 5:30 this morning so well done to her. She did some housework after the run and then had something to eat but failed to find the energy to go to AA. I don't blame her, it would have been too much.
She starts work tomorrow at 7:30 and I am starting a three week stint of work tomorrow so I will not be around when she comes back from her work. This may be a problem as it will take the pressure of her to not drink on the way home as she will know I won't be here to spot it.
There it is - wait and see. What will be will be. I am pessimistic about her chances of staying off the booze while she is working as it makes her tired and stresses her. This destabilizes her slightly and just enough to tip her towards drink over time. She really struggles with coping generally when she works.
