Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* To find out, I decided to try not to drink at all for two months. I did not know if I could do it, but I thought I'd try to see what would happen.

Having some late-night outings - the kind after which you do not necessarily want to drink for a while - just before my alcohol-free challenge really helped.

I still have a long way to go, but I recommend others to give this application a chance. If it helps me, it can help someone. I am really grateful for this application, and I can not thank the team enough to do it! No alcohol schedule really opened the eyes to the dangers of alcoholism.

We have grace and freedom AMEN, but we are also supposed to value others more than us Phil 2 3. That's a good point.
