Guidance or suggestion

Posted , 8 users are following.

I celebrated 4 years of not drinking two weeks ago due to ONE thought in my mind: one more day without drinking PROLONGS my life and I will live longer and see my grandchildren.....IF i take ONE more drink i will live fewer days and be sad...simple but effective...AND I feel much better and look younger..I did stop 6 years ago and after 3 months wanted "that one drink since I know how to control it.." and I could not. Yes, started drinking again heavily but stopped the following year since it could have ruined my family life. I just know that I have to remain sober and not have the one drink. Best of luck to all of you wonderful people out there. My first post here after 2 years! Robin

    Wonderful achievement, Robin. Congratulations !

    I have just completed Day 4 Alcohol Free... quite a way to go, to be in your league.  Your advice and inspiration is so true.  I want to live.  I want to see my grandchildren. I want to be the person I should be.

    You are always encouraging people, on here.  Many will be glad to know of your long lasting, determined sobriety.

    Keep up the Best You !

    Well done Robin - a wonderful achievement. Can't believe we haven't heard from you for two years. It is good for you that your thoughts govern your behaviour. I can think of dozens of reasons not to drink and no reasons to drink other than I enjoy it. But I still drink too much.There are plenty of things that should motivate me not to drink, but I still drink too much. I can wake in the morning (not hungover or anything) and think today I won't drink - I don't fancy a drink now why should I have one at all today - but by lunch time or by evening if I have something to do in the afternoon I'm back to the wine.

      Well done robin

      i think you were the first person to reply to me when I joined. You're a very nice person who is always interested in helping and encouraging others. You are very modest in your fantastic achievement, 4 years sober and always find something positive to help others.

      youve helped me a lot, both by private messages and on the forum itself. You are a real family man  whose turned his life around and reaping the benefits of a sober life. Well done and thank you
