Alcohol cravings!!!

I am now 37 weeks pregnant and have been having alcohol cravings , wine to be precise! My boyfriend bought a bottle and he suggested that I could have one glass but I wanted the whole bottle! After one glass I feel like having more! I know drinking alcohol is not good for the baby but even if I see some people holding glasses on TV I feel like drinking!
Is there something I can do to stop this?? I have tried eating grapes, a lot of them but they dont help!!!

You will have to try to be strong. Perhaps grape juice would help.

Thanks guys, I'm gonna try my best!
My friend suggested that I drink those alcohol-free wines! Although they do not taste like the real thing, they do keep my mind away from thinking about wine all the time!

I agree with Kippie, only three weeks to go so stay away from the wine.

Oh boy!! You only have another 3 weeks to go, so try and stay away from that until then, and have a whole bottle the day you deliver (joking!!!)
Seriously, you are obviously aware of the harm it could do so I suggest not even keeping it the house as your cravings are strong and it is like being on a diet and keeping chocolate in every cupboard.
3 Weeks aren't that far away - you can do it!!!!!!!!!
