I had this memory during a meeting today of times during the latter years of my drinking where I would wake up determined not to drink that day, I did this every day, and would write on my arm in permanent black marker “Don’t Drink Today” so that as the day went on I would remember how I felt that morning and not drink come afternoon/evening. It never worked. I would find myself washing the marker off in the shower while drinking, having lost the daily battle again. Pure insanity!
