Advice On Giving Up Alcohol....
* If you're drunk and you start to realize that your story is going to end with a bunch of your friends telling hilarious stories at your funeral, I promise you that it's really worth it to stop, despite All the bad things I described above. I have been a sober year since last week, and I have never felt better or more proud of myself in my life. And that year, I have not even woken up once with a rooster pulled over my face.
* The dependence on food abounds and so little is said about it that it has become acceptable, which breaks my heart for many people who are still struggling. So many mtgs to church, etc. use food as a "master piece". Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful and yet painfully honest story. That made me very happy and I am grateful for your openness! Really great writing, so happy a friend posted this on Facebook.
* We try to eat nutritious food. If we receive coaching, we know we are working on our business. Are we going to ignore the elephant in the room that is currently dancing with a lampshade on the head and laugh a little too loud while telling jokes off-color?

* I did a lot of really poorchoices that have had a profound impact on my life. I stopped drinking for a while because I was tired of the mess, but I eagerly desired the ease of others. I wanted a glass of wine while I was painting, or a cocktail with friends. So I started drinking again. It took me a long time to get to the point where I could admit that I was not like the others. I could not have a drink once in a while.

You want your life back to normal, not to become an existence where you look to make sure you do not do anything to put your beloved. You are an assistant, you are very important, but you are not the solution. Think of all the things you can do with the energy and the clear head that you will have.
* One of my most vivid childhood memories is that of my mom and dad standing out of Winnipeg with the last empty bottles, big smiles on their face then that my mother was paying them. The bottles made that glug-glug sound when the pour is too fast for opening. We made an opportunity of that moment as a family. It was a celebration, an important step that my sister and I did not understand, but we felt the relief in our home.
* I felt so crappy every morning on my way to work. So I gave myself a date of arbitrary abandonment March 23rd. It was three days after my son's birthday, which, I knew, would be a big party. And that was all. I just stopped drinking. You wrote on Reddit that you first replaced everything you drank by eating what you wanted - which, honestly, sounds very fun. I went to town on candy,for sure. My body was missing all that sugar.
* I thought that the way alcohol softened and blurred the limits of life would be missed. I thought I would be strange in dating. Quietly. Without much fanfare. It's been a while now. I just stopped one day and have not drunk anything since that day. The surprising thing for me is this it's been good. I did not miss it, I did not feel like a stranger, I did not feel any desire to drink. In fact, I noticed that my non-consumption allowed other people to stop.
