Everybody well?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi everyone. No activity for 10 days in any discussion within the alcohol forum. This does surprise me since i have been a member and very active for 5 years+. Has everybody been cured and have no problems I wonder? There used to be 4 or 5 new discussions every week previously. The new layout and website design does not i think since not particularly user friendly.

waiting to hear from anybody😄

    Hi Robin! I am doing very well. I thank God everyday that I discovered this forum which lead to the discovery of the Sinclair Method and Naltrexone!!

    I am in week 29 of using Naltreoxone and it has changed my life. I faithfully take it each time at least one hour before I am going to drink -- hasn't been hard at all to stick to this. I was so miserable and afraid of being an alcoholic that I was very motivated!! I have seen my cravings decrease, though not disappear (yet anyway). The number of drinks consumed has drastically reduced as well!!!! I have only over drank three times since starting. I often have only 1 glass of wine and feel no need to have more!

    My husband and I just went on vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico over spring break. I confess to being a little worried how I would do. We stayed on a beautiful all-inclusive resort and I knew the drinks would be flowing freely and readily. But I just popped a Naltrexone each day, shortly after our late breakfast, so that by early afternoon when I was ready for a pina colada I was already prepared. It worked wonders! And, if four hours later more drinking was going to happen, I popped another Naltrexone then and was prepared. I did not "over drink", though there were days I drank more than I have been at home of late. I did well and I feel great about the experience!

    Thankful in Montana! Amy

    Hey Robin! I can say I am doing ok. 2 years now since last drink but now I'm back at work full time after my 1 year and 8 month leave and as I suspected I have a stronger urge to drink. Haven't but it's there. My job is stressful and makes me want to come home open a bottle and forget but can't. So guess what...I have put in applications to find a new job, in a new field since I am not going to risk stressing myself out and heading back to drinking. Already had one job offer, one interview with a "congratulations we would like to pass you through drug and alcohol screening to hire you" and 2 more potential interviews. I can make this work!!

    How about you? I love reading what people have to say here and agree with you that it has gone too quiet. 😴

      Hi Robin,

      I was going to post on 11th April as I will have been 9 months without alcohol!!

      I went out today with a group of friends for Sunday lunch and had a great time on just diet coke. As I've said before, honestly everyone, if I can do it then there is hope for everyone else. And Robin, your encouraging comments to all really do make a difference to that person's journey so thanks for taking the time to offer your support and continuing interest 😃

      So everyone, keep strong and keep aiming for sobriety!!

      All the best.

      Claire xx

      Naltrexone is just one part of the equation. What are you doing to also work on the habit side of your drinking, cm?

      For example, are you having that first drink and then making the next a non-alcoholic one? Or maybe trying to interrupt your habitual drinking by actively doing something else after the first drink (walk around the block, have a bath etc)?

      The fact that it worked in the beginning is a great indicator that you will reach your goal, whatever that may be, but although the naltrexone is the 'gas' in the car, you still have to steer the car in the direction you want to go.
