    Here is what I wrote this morning in my journal about the stupidity and futility of comparing myself with others with regards to drinking; however, it’s never good to compare ourselves with others in ANY regards. There will always be someone younger, older, thinner, fatter, richer, poorer, wiser, less wise, popular, less popular, an extrovert versus an introvert like myself, etc.

    I have definitely played the comparison game with others, viewing their drinking habits in light of my former ones and thinking I didn’t have a problem because I wasn’t as bad off as they were. However, I never looked at my husband’s LACK of drinking habit and compared mine to his, because I was in denial. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter to me how much anyone else is drinking, what matters to me is that I have stopped drinking for 15 days and counting. [I only came across this book/program a week ago, that’s why I’m on Day 8 and not 15. :)].
