This Saturday my husband and I are hosting a dinner to a couple we have been friends with for years. We haven’t seen them in awhile and last time ( before COVID ) we went out to eat they unexpectedly paid for our dinner. So instead of going out, we are hosting this dinner.
I am excited for company however she is a huge wine drinker. I know she will come with wine. A lot of our history involves drinking together. A big trigger for drinking for me is while I’m cooking and getting ready for events. I have always hosted a lot of events including all holidays. So I told my husband I wanted to buy a bottle of non alcoholic wine. Yes I could tell her I’m not drinking but I just don’t want to deal with it. I know then she will likely not drink too, but that may take some wind from her sails. Hubby agreed could be a good idea. I’ll keep my bottle in the fridge and as I fill it I doubt she will even notice it’s N/A.
Crazy how I’m over a year into realizing alcohol is a problem for me and still have struggle times however, I know I have made huge strides to change my thinking on alcohol! I know you all have been instrumental in that!! ☺️
I feel confident going into this dinner! 😃
