Re: How to say no to a drink?

Dear Pink, Thank you for sharing your experience on how to say no and how easier and less shameful it gets. Everytime I said no to a drink I never regretted. No hangover, no black outs, no anxiety, no fears. The EAF is still a very charming person for me but I will be strong and resist. When out the...

Re: Christmas: Doing it Sober and in Style

HI there Bella and P31. I am happier today and am doing the mind mapping of drinking and craving. It has been useful. Thank you for your kind words. JenJam, in NY, maybe you should try something new such as behaving as if you have never drunk before and doing things that make non-drinkers happy, suc...

Re: Christmas and New Year Abstinence thread

Dear All, I am really happy of being back and in this thread. I also like the way you all are reflecting about 2009 drinking. I joined BE in October last year due to a series of problems that I was having caused by binge drinking. After one year, I have succeeded in "controling" my drinking and stay...

Re: Guilt With Drinking

I am feeling very guilty and embarassed of last night's binge drinking. My heart is racing, I have flushes of embarassment and I would like to erase that night out. I am blaming myself for everything that went wrong, feeling ridiculous, weak and without control. Really wanting to be a respectful per...

Re: The First 7 Days

Hello there everyone, I am back at Day 1 but at least I am back with my intent to control the EAF. Well done for all of you who are at Day 1 or Day 42. I have been telling myself that it is not a shame to be back again in Day 1 after binge drinking. At least, I am not planning my next binge today an...

Re: I can't stop.

Hi Lel and Jacqui, I am joinning the 7 day challenge today. I did a one-week challenge in the begining of the month but after that have been drinking a little here and a little there. Yesterday, I drunk a lot (around two bottles of wine) I slept in the sofa of a friend's house. Very embarrasing. Teo...

Re: Do you want to say "I haven't had a drink today" ?

I have not had a drink today but I am recovering from last night's binge drinking and suffering all the psicological consequences of my acts. Again can't believe I am writing this down again in this forum. It is just embarassing being at this point again. But at the same time as my husband reminded ...

Re: Breaking the cycle

Hi Dave, I completely understand what you mean by saying you are behaving worse than a child. I am like that too but decided to go back to my principles, set some limits to myself and follow them. I am sorry to hear that you lost your financial control for your wife, but that might be a good way to ...

Re: The First 7 Days

Be patient Whites. That must be my 10th Day 3. But at least I am back, recognizing it is a problem and trying again. One day we will be able to say Day 30 with a smile.

Re: I can't stop.

Just keep trying Kevan and one day we will be able to say we have not had a drink for a month. That would be brilliant.
