I accidentally had alcohol


We’re celebrating my cousins 9th birthday.
I went to the kitchen to get something to drink, and saw two bowls of fruit.
I grabbed some strawberries and as I bit into it, I realized, they were soaked in liquor.

I put them down and put them away…
But I feel conflicted about it all.
It was a mistake and I didn’t want to, and I put it away immediately, but I was always fearing this situation.

I know it wasn’t my fault and I’m not going to drink again now (I hope so at least and work towards that) but I feel stupid for making this mistake.
I needed to tell someone, so here it is.


Good to get it out and hold yourself accountable for understanding your limitations, but don’t let that be your focus. The mistake wasn’t that you slipped up and had a drink, it was that you bit into a piece of fruit that happened to have a worm. This has nothing to do with you or sobriety. High five and keep being awesome!!


In this situation you did everything I can imagine that will result in a positive outcome. That is so strong that rather than continuing to eat the fruit you had the strength to put it back. I’m super proud of you for that. Keep up the good work.
We’re always here for you and hold fast.
