Drinking Alcohol - Moderation Or Abstinence
What fits your lifestyle when drinking alcohol, moderation or abstinence? Do you think you can drink alcohol in moderation or should you have complete abstinence of alcohol?
So many people that drink alcohol start out thinking and saying to themselves, "when I go out tonight, I am only having 3 or 4 drinks and that is it." How often have you said that when you are going out for the night and when you are done drinking alcohol for the evening you are plastered?
Many people that have stopped drinking alcohol, such as myself often wonder, "can I just drink in moderation and only have a few drinks to be social?" I have said that many times since I have been clean and sober and the answer I give myself is, "there is no way in the world I can drink in moderation!"
If you think you can drink in moderation after giving up your addiction alcohol, I think you are only fooling yourself and just might relapse when your lips touch that cold glass of beer or that refreshing alcoholic drink. I know for a fact I would be doomed if I were to have that one sip and I am sure every alcoholic that is in recovery would say the same thing.
If you are serious about your sobriety and want it to be long term, like for the rest of your life, than I would not recommend trying moderation. I feel this is only pure torture to your mind and body.
God Bless you if you can drink in moderation. I wish I could of done that, but it is totally impossible, and if I ever tried drinking in moderation I would only be fooling myself.
Drinking Alcohol in Moderation
Is There a Happy Medium
Is there a happy medium when it comes to drinking or not, or just drinking a little or not at all? If you feel you are an alcoholic and are in recovery, why in the world would you even think to try drinking in moderation after you have done so well being sober.
You know, the longer you stay sober the easier it will get for you to stay sober. Granted, when i stopped drinking alcohol the first month or so was pure torture. I was a nervous wreck and continually thinking, "will I be able to do this thing we call getting and staying sober?"
I and you have to keep a positive attitude every minute of every single day and keep telling ourselves that we will conquer this addiction to alcohol we have. If you have it in your heart and soul to beat the inner demons that lurk inside of all of us alcoholics we will prevail.
