dear Rhes, what a mammoth effort for you to stop for 1 month, 1 day is great but to be able to extend this to 1 month whow, that's just terrific.
Sweetichick, I'm sure that many of us have had mental problems while we drank alcohol, I certainly did and would never the hide the fact,because if I do then I am only fooling myself.
Moonstruck whow 3 years fantastic, but whether it's for medical reasons is certainly a great way, as I had to now drink socially because of having a seizure and that's not what I would ever want to happen again, because to recover from a grand mal is where you don't know what day it is, where you are, your birth date or who is Prime Minister, plus you can't drive a car.
If you can walk past a bottle shop or go ito a supermarket and be able to ignore the where the alcohol is sold, then you are cured, especially when you are stressed out, because you know what the dangers lie ahead if you go in and start once again.
It is 'that determination' as Rhes has said, that willpower, that strength you need to be successful and that's what I am seeing here, so well done.
The question you maybe asking is why do I drink socially, well the answer is that I know when I need to stop, otherwise there is a chance that a seizure will happen.
Lookingforward from hearing from you Jessie as well as Gettingbetter. Geoff. x
