Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* I noticed this recently and felt the need to engage in this kind of discussion. As always, thank you for being obedient to the Spirit and for gently reminding us of the freedom that can be forsaken. Great statement in the article - and great to have it quoted again here. Our American society is pushing alcohol - and sometimes we do not even notice it. While we ban other drugs and ban advertising on drugs like tobacco, alcohol is given a full pass.
* Aim for at least 150 minutes of cardio exercise and two sessions of bodybuilding a week, recommends the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The decision to stop drinking can be a life-saving way of life for people who feel at risk of developing a problem with alcohol dependence. For a person who is wondering how to stop drinking alcohol, it is important to understand that there are many different ways to sobriety.
* While your body will have adjusted after a week of not drinking, there may be some psychological effects of detox that last longer. Some people report feelings of anger and aggression, general anxiety and depression, nightmares and difficulty sleeping, and even a decrease in libido. This is partly because alcohol consumption affects neurotransmitters that are involved in mood, such as serotonin.

* Oh Ron, that spoke in my heart in a deep way. I just left the social media because it became an addiction, used to distract me from dealing with emotions and difficult things in life. Used to numb the pain and seek acceptance. On the contrary, it aggravated my anxiety. Thank you for being honest with us. Thank you for giving up things that do not make you better or more like Jesus, and giving us permission to do the same.
* I like this part about cynicism too ... that hit a nerve. I am often in my ego, being an all knowing and acting by pretending not to be. I will ask God to help me with that too. This is an incredible testimony ... my weight is the cell phone that led me deep into the sin ... my God it's so amazing .. It's His Grace and it's so obvious in that .. thanks, thanks for sharing .. I posted on my page for my friends.
* The Office of General Services of Alcoholics Anonymous says there are some 60,000 groups in the US from which to choose. Some people in the early stages of the cure go to meetings every day. Others go just once or twice a week. Still others go only once a week and spend time studying the organization's printed materials. Staying in touch with the treatment provider is a smart idea, too. A slippage can occur at any time and in some cases you may be asked to register for another treatment, so that you will not be in danger of slipping in the future.
* Nobody cares. Nobody has to explain. Nobody needs to make it a "personal choice". Because at the end of the day, we are talking about a drink. I was wondering because you and I obviously have two very different ideas about what the author intends to say. While you are stuck on the subject of the lesson, I try to absorb the lesson itself. I did not read that the author turned alcohol into a "great spiritual problem", but rather what God personally called him to do, and it was with his drink of choice.
* Nobody does it with coffee, for example. Because we have never made coffee a big spiritual problem. And in circles where drinking alcohol is not an enormous spiritual problem, as with most Catholics, it's the same as coffee. Some people like it and take a cup. Some people do not do it. And no one is worried about it. The same goes for a glass of wine or beer in my husband's Catholic family and among the staff of the Catholic school I worked with - I have it or not.
* Tell people what you are doing. Not only does this add a sense of responsibility to your goal, but it also suggests that if your friends intend to go out and be wasted, you probably are not interested. Plus, if someone offers you a drink andyou look at them and say, "I can not. I am a full alcoholic, they will probably never ask you again. The first 72 hours are the most painful part of the recovery.
