This time i was thinking of writing myself a letter to read if i feel like starting to drink again. What it does to me in the long run. Sum up the positive sides and the negative sides. Now that it is still fresh in the memory and not like i would have been 6 or 8 months sober like last attempts.


Sounds like s great idea Fin ! Another thing you may want to think about is WHY you want that drink ? We use alcohol for so many reasons, and I know I overused it to mask pain from different life experiences . If we can understand the triggers better, we can overcome them with more ease.

Wishing you so much health and happiness Fin.

Let us know if Gordi's recipe helps you. Medical weed helps some forms of pain. Then there are prescription meds of course. I have nerve damage, spinal stenosis and regular arthritis and I still need the meds as the weed isn't enough, though it does help some. It also helps me to sleep at night and helps anxiety as well.

On your positive/negative list, you will see that the negative when drinking will far out weigh the positive so yeah, good idea to make that list! Your discipline and determination are an inspiration!

Loved your song of course!

You asked and you answered


In the last millennium it was to party, to socialize, to rebel.

This millennium it has been all about suppressing the pain. That is the only reason but it is huge sometimes. Night Star mentioned above that the negative sides of my drinking outweight the positivities and that is very true. I can easily come up with ten negativities while the only positivity remains to be the pain suppressing. Momentarily of course, but then it is like being underwater for too long and finally getting back to surface to breathe.

Now i am feeling good anyway. Just got back from the sauna. Been eating well, plenty of fruits and berries also, and water.

Berries and water are cool. I am a big fan of water and berries.

Jiminy, Jacy, Chirp, Fin and any heavy metal fans, I just made a thread you might enjoy. Even our non heavy metal folks might enjoy his humor.

Just for the uninitiated among us...is that a pony or a brony? The mane is giving me doubts.

Hi!

A calm saturday morning. I slept well and now i feel relaxed. Just sliced two apples for me to eat while surfing online. I ate so much potato chips and pizza when i was drinking that i just can't have that kind of stuff right now.

Others, what's up

Haha yo!

I went to the freshman's forum and learned to embed pics!

"A desert bloom is a climatic phenomenon that occurs in various deserts around the world. The phenomenon consists of the blossoming of a wide variety of flowers during early-mid spring in years when rainfall is unusually high."

This is Atacama desert.

Heya fin. I don't drink but I know all about struggling to keep ones intentions, or even nature. What's helped me more than anything is to know that in my desire [to not drink] I have everything I need to keep that intention. Slipping up is human- what matters most is staying positive, so you keep coming back to your intention. All you really need to do is learn to see your 'slipups. And even cravings as steps on the road to your.intention - and success becomes inevitable, even should you never fully he able to stickl.to it
