Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* I felt that both actions were connected drinking and relaxing!, And I wondered momentarily if I could relax without drinking. At that time, I had to remember that it was not a big deal and that I could do it. In bars or restaurants, I would say to the person who takes drink orders "I'm going to start with water," to lessen the pressure. Usually it was enough, but if it was not the case, I would start a new conversation or find another way to distract myself.
* I would be afraid if I did, I would go back to the same cycle. I just did not like who I became. I did not like what that was doing to my body. I tried to stop two years ago - the day after my wedding, I drank everything that was in sight and I vomited for 24 hours. But I only leave for a month. I gave myself this 30 day arrival line, and I went back to drinking even more. I got up a pack of 12 a night, then my wife came home and I drank a glass or two of wine with her.
* If you have drunk alcohol regularly, your body will take note when it is gone. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, cravings are to be expected when your drinking behavior changes. The balance created by your body to adapt to the alcohol in your system will no longer exist. This first day you go without drinking, especially if you have been drinking every day, will probably be filled with cravings for alcohol.
* One of the former drinkers on the photo, known only as Dr. Dan, saw a huge change after giving up alcohol for just six months. He posted about the image seen at the top of this story In the first photo, I found myself alone, nearly 300lbs, in an extraordinary amount of credit card debt and unemployed, and, fortunately, at the end of one For six years, I drank one-fifth every day while I often thought about suicide, supported my alcoholic and violent fellow with just my income below the threshold of poverty, and I was fighting to finish my Ph.D.

* I started to notice my friends who were recovering. I began to notice how difficult it is to be in recovery, to be sober, in a world where you drink. And how difficult it was to be sober in the church and out of the church. I stopped posting wine photos on my Instagram. I began to wonder if I thought of myself and my own freedom more than I thought of others. I began to notice how a glass of wine almost always means two or three.
* It was then in 1966, after my mother and father became Christian when I was eight years old, that my dad made the decision to quit smoking. He knew that cigarettes were destroying his lungs and damaging his heart. But he also knew that one day his children would ask to want to smoke and what would he tell us? Would he say, "Your youngest age!" And then we would ask, "What age are we going to have?".
* It's hard for people to understand why I can not go from "alcoholic" to "moderate drinker". There are many people who can drink moderately. They can go down a couple with their friends, shit on the hood of a police car, go to sleep and forget all about alcohol the next day. I am not one of them. Neither my father, who died at 49 years of this shit. I think I will find a better way to teach the same lesson to my children.
* I'm right with you, Bethadilly! I know my addictive personality since high school 20 years ago, I know the alcoholism that sits in my extended family both sides and, through the grace from God, I knew myself well enough not to touch alcohol. Sugar, however, is a different story, but today I'm marking 58 clean days. No sugar, no flour for the last 57 days. Because I am a food addict, I have also cut snacks and second aids from my lifestyle.
