Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* Thank you for an excellent article - sister in Christ. It will be 6 years old this 18th of October. Six years ago, on that date, I woke up in the hallway in a pool of dried up vomit. I asked God to remove me from this way of life. I have not been drinking since. I did not even want to. It took 4 years to attend my first AA meeting here in this small town and I have been involved regularly ever since.
* This is rarely the case. Moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a lower risk of diabetes, gallstones, and coronary artery disease. Slight to moderate consumption appears to be beneficial for the heart and circulatory system, which reduces the risk of heart failure by 25% to 40%. cerebral vascular accident. And there have been several studies showing that drinkers - even heavy drinkers - actually survive to people who do not drink. We see titles like this one every time a new study is published, which seems quite often, judging by what you now find online.
* I began to see how much he hurt my body and mind. I started reading news that I had missed one way or another about the way alcohol was linked to so many physical losses in our bodies . I started to see the women of my generation become more and more dependent, because the wine was sold to women as the rest or as the treatment they deserved for their And their diligence and altruism. I started seeing news everywhere on the rise of alcohol consumption among women.
* I would write more about it, but I think about making it a book, as soon as I can find someone to illustrate it. The first thing to do during detox is the mind. It's starting to wander. Missed memory in the short term. The simplest tasks will require as much concentration as detonating a time bomb. There was a day in the first week of my own detox when I entered the living room four times in a row to pick up my phone, but each time I forgot to pick it up.

* You explained it beautifully. I think that belief has had a bad reputation in the church lately. I agree, even if I am guilty of this attitude / perception in some areas. I found it so interesting that even though it was so easy to stop drinking it was as you described it, a relief, it was harder to explain to other Christians. There is an unspoken feeling in the air that not to drink should be less "free".
* You can also calculate the sobriety time of all your friends. Wow, I had no idea that there were so many apps for that. I guess I just did not think about watching. Thank you for putting this list together, I will certainly share it with some people who, I know, would benefit! Health Triggr is also a general, research-based application that is particularly good for young people. I use the Results Walrus app, it gives medals for dry days, trajectories of dry days, both weekly or monthly, and others.
* If you have some friends with whom you drink, you should stay away from them for a while. Or you can learn to say "no". below What about when you can not? If you are in a bowling team, you should probably try it and see what happens. If you normally drink while visiting your in-laws, you can not really get rid of your in-laws. So, do not see them for a while and learn course tactics to deal with a host of other triggers.
* And congratulations for your three years! A milestone to celebrate. It was a perfect timing. Thank you for your honesty. I like this post. I was raised in a deeply Christian, non-drinking family. My parents seemed snobbish in their faith that drinking was a fault of the soul. And so, even though I did not drink while growing up, I notice everything about alcohol in this childish way. I notice when people can not interact socially without drinking.
* When reading this, I thought why, if it's "freedom" to drink ... is not it also "freedom" not to do it? I find it very liberating not to do it! I had a lot of experience of opposing childhood - a family with several generations of alcoholics. My mother made me my first margarita shortly after turning 18 years old. I have a cousin in recovery, a brother who is currently out of the wagon, and many other parents actively hooked.
