I haven't had an alcoholic drink for 3 weeks.I like to avoid the word "alcoholic" because I think it has unnecessary connotations,but I have definitely been drinking too much for too long,and I just got to the point where I'd had enough of it.I was drinking in the daytime,which was getting very depressing.I was looking and feeling rough.Plus alcohol is expensive and I need to economise.I want to spend my money on other things.Now I drink 2 litres of water a day and 1 litre of orange juice.I feel so much better.I intend to quit alcohol for life.Sometimes I get a flash of "God I need a drink",But I just try and and sit with myself and let the feeling pass.So this thread is for anyone who feels they have issues with alcohol,for anyone who has quit,who wants to quit or just moderate.Thanx for reading.

Good for you Fairlight. I quit drinking in February 1984. I never looked back and rarely think of it now.

I drank alot when I was young. I was of the mindset that you have to be somehow intoxicated to feel good and to have a good time. Also, I think I used it to help with some social anxiety. I gave it up when I got tired of the hangovers.

I may have an alcohol beverage once or twice a year now.

One whole month alcohol free as of yesterday.The nightly pains in my heart have gone,which I though was from smoking cigarettes,but must have been from the alcohol.Next move is to quit cigarettes,but quitting both smoking and alcohol at once would drive me out of my nut...

It'll be 6 weeks 2moro alcohol free for me.I really fancied a bottle of red 2nite.I have £5 in my wallet,just enough,and it's been the the most hard time resisting I've had so far.Not because I want to drown my sorrows but because I want to intensify my warm peace feeling.But I know that caving in would be a real let down,so,damn it,must be strong.
