Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* I resigned when I got pregnant. Thanks to Allen Carr Easyway for stopping smoking * He did not take any wills. I do not miss it at all. I give thanks to God every day for my freedom ... "I never wanted to give up ... I cared more about smoking than about living. I stopped because Allen Carr explained why there was no reason. - I tried to leave five times before and I failed, and then I came across Allen Carr's Easyway.
* I did not have a problem with the drink but my husband did it. My middle daughter does. I had other aspects of my life that the Holy Spirit spoke to me about. You described it so eloquently. He never makes us feel guilty, just this slight decree until we know we have to do what He asks. . . and He asks because he knows what is best for us. Thank you for sharing so nicely. Beautiful. I hope this testimony leads to more freedom and abundance for others.

* 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.
* You can set goals to see how your alcohol consumption fits those goals over a period of time. I Am Sober is a companion app that follows your sobriety. It allows you to track the hours, minutes and seconds that you have been sober and the total number of days you have been without alcohol. Daily notifications allow you to focus on the recovery path, and special notifications alert you when you have reached a key step.
* And I began to realize that I was using wine, cider, or craft beer to get out of it, to make me numb against everything, even the least. And I remembered what my counseling teacher once said all addictions begin as a coping mechanism. So I resigned. I finished the bottle of wine that I received as a gift, and I have not been drinking for about a month. My mind is clear. I suddenly see all the societal and cultural things you have named, and I regret them.
* I'm not saying that my family is perfect nobody is, but our relationships are genuine and healthy. I can bike 100 miles in less than 6 hours and bench press well over 200 pounds. I read at least two books a week and I spend a lot of time with my children. Drinking may not work for everyone. But that never stopped me. Let us not delude ourselves into thinking that we know the plan of God though if we were to guess that they would clearly conclude that God's plan is for me to drink based on positive results.
* Who wants to feel like a puppet - or a parrot? But I think it's possible that many of us are exactly like that when it comes to alcohol - unknowingly falling for the advertising, the beliefs of others, and the inaccurate thinking. Ah, dear. You may have saved a life or two with this beautifully designed and honest post. Thanks thanks. A good reading. I had similar thoughts - why should I point myself out with a glass of wine that I'm on vacation, having fun, an adult who at the end of the day can finally take my resposibilities.
