Gassy's been dry for a month today

So a month ago I wrote about thinking of getting pro help, well I did. I checked in to an IOP --intensive out patient program. It's 6 weeks long, 4 days a week from 6--to 9:30. I have 9 sessions left. On weekends I go to AA meetings which I don't really dig yet but I gotta go they say. Anyway, my point is that I feel great and haven't had any cravings yet...I know it's super early in all of this but the cliche of One day at a time is helping. I've learned to love Tonic water and lime...a few of you have PM'ed me in the last month and I'd like to thank you for your support.
Christian.

Congrats dude!

Now if I could just get my $hit together

Been feeling a little funky and doing a two bottle of wine a night habit.

I tried AA also and it isn't working for me, however I never hesitate to recommend it because it is free and it DOES work for thousands of people.

Just got over a breakup and feeling a little down but starting to date a new lady next week, perhaps that will improve my mood.

Hang in there Christian!

Cool, more for me
j/k

If you really want to stop and need to stop I think you'll make it, keep up the good work. If you don't mind I'll say a little prayer asking to give you strength in the fight.

We started a group for people who were not comfortable with AA, its call "Friends of Matt Talbot"

If you get a chance search on line and read his story..

Yeah, I don't look like ***** anymore and my energy level is amazing. I'm actually happy about some things now and that's been a long time coming. Getting up much earlier and enjoying the mornings.

Congrats! Keep it going and good luck!

My brother is a recovering alcoholic. He was stuck on brandy which, from what I've heard, is one the worst addictions. He's been dry for 6 years now. He still can't quit smoking, but I'm grateful he got rid of one vice anyway.

Good going!

Wish I could quit. I'm afraid it's going to take something bad happening for me to stop. My father never quit and died at 42. I turned 41 today

Congratulations Christian! IMO, quitting is the easy part...it's the not starting back part that's a real b***ch, whenever "that" point comes . Good luck and keep on doing what you're doing!!!
