It's been two entire days since Susan drank any liquor or ate any goodies.

The absence of liquor is completely unintentional, she'll be back to it on Friday night, but the lack of sugar is agony. Agony!

It generally takes three, four, five days of abstinence before her cravings depart, she's halfway through her detox.

Her eyes are rolling back in her head and she's covered in bugs. She'd love it if someone would please mop her brow and make her eat some hot soup like they do in the movies.

My brother in law just ate the last of the cookies, thank gawd! In a week's time, everyone will be gone, as will all the food. Hello lean cuisines!

Still working on the cookies and salt here. I'll wipe your brow if you do the same next week for me.
Shoo, bugs.

I've been hitting the Prosecco - I think it's the name - Makes me feel like it's not real drink - just a dainty sort of ritzy sort of sip-in-a-flute sort of delicacy that makes a guest appearance for the hols, then fizzes sweetly into aftermath trailing a golden sheen and a trace of knowing laughter.

I could give up the alcohol without any problem, but not the sugar. Sugar is a 5th food group for me, and would take many more than 5 days of abstinence to kick.

I try to do it but I can't. Tomorrow I'll try again. And I will do it. For one, two, maybe three days. But then I'll not be able to do it and it will be as if I never was able to do it. But I'll try and succeed and fail and succeed and fail and this will be my life as if I am a hamster on a wheel chasing creamy chocolatey things.
