I quit everything else cold turkey but nicotine I abused the patch.
Glad that's behind me...
I asked my doctor for help and he prescribed something to take away the urges. Works great.
Reminds me of when Tom Leykis would talk about people on the 'heroine diet'.Identifying a problem and working hard to correct it is admirable. Choosing not to drink alcohol is great, like any other diet.
However, it seems many people that don’t drink seem to have to justify it and often times it comes off as a bit self righteous.
Happy new year to those who choose not to drink, and those that choose to enjoy the experience and nuance of finely crafted beer, wine, and spirits.
Thanks! One thing that helped me mentally when I quit smoking was, i read the book by Allen Carr, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking.I'm having a tough time kicking the cigarettes. In the past 7 months I smoked about 10 of them. None the first 4 months but then I smoked one over a period of 8-10 hours. another month and maybe 2 cigs and on and on. I need to STOP completely. COPD/emphysema are the main occupants of my medical charts and If I don't totally stop smoking I'm gonna' stop breathing. I know this and yet getting to the stopping point with tobacco is the hardest thing I've tried to do and trust me, I've had some unbelievable habits.
I wish you the best of luck maintaining your sobriety.
****in' A man! You said it ALL!On this day in 1997, I drank my last alcohol. I don't know why I finally came to the conclusion that drinking was bad for ME, but I'm glad that I did. I'm not on a soapbox, if you drink, that's your business. If you don't that's your business too. Some of the best times I ever had were when I was sufficiently, but not excessively drunk. There ain't no buddies in this world like drinking buddies. If you could label that comradery and put that in a bottle that did not produce drunkenness, you could at last find world peace.
Sobriety is over rated. I like waking up in a dumpster covered in vomit.
just had a double...feels good..i've never had an issue with any booze...seriously..i have a drink now and then and that's it..but for those that have and quit..congrats
