I'm glad you're still holding strong. I'm hoping we will get some new members posting in the new year. This time of year is often slow for us.
I would love to read from any old or new members. I'm hoping or old members are very busy with their new alcohol free lives and that is why they are not posting. Maybe we will get an update done day soon...
A beautifully written post by "Nodrama". It's great to read for motivation and inspiration. Real conversations, more love and no regrets sounds priceless to me.
What are your reasons for wanting to quit or cut back?
If you are already quit or cut back, what positives have you gained?
Thanks for reading! We are in this together.
I wonder where these people are now? How are they doing? I always remember when NoDrama said she bought a bottle of Vodka and disposed it in the trash can. I said Oh No..... She pulled the bottle out of the Trash can and drank. I can totally relate to the obsession and how the mind works. It tricks us into taking that drink.
Anyways for me life is good. I can proudly say the program of AA has completely removed the obsession to drink. I just have to watch my selfish and self-centered thoughts so I dont slip into the old state of self pity. I am sorry to see that there no new members, i am sure there are plenty of people out there. I see those empty beer cans on the curbside and I know there are people still taking that last drink and tossing the can before they head back home. I have done that. Hope they all find a solution.
Years ago, when I read through threads, I would read posts like this and wonder how they could be happy without alcohol. It never occurred to me that drinking didn't make me happy or that giving it up would bring more happiness than I could have ever imagined.
I agree with Nodrama. Life is better now. SO much better. :)
Congratulations nordama! Thank you for posting this it is very inspirational, now I have a goal that I have to reach, I want to get sober sooner and I would like to share my experience here when I success.
