    One foot out the door...

    other one on a banana peel.

    Did anyone ready Beautifulwreck's post under the Moderation thread?
    Nice job, oh those who never err.

    I, too, am feeling as though maybe I have gotten what I need from this board. I was LOVING the kind support of SO many people here. I am doing better than I ever have with my drinking! I have this program and MOST of the people here to thank for that.
    However, I cannot waste my energy, either, being pissed off all day about people who criticize and judge from across the board. I cannot recall any people who were trying to moderate their drinking who said such nasty comments about people who had chosen to abstain. And we are to "look up to" you?? Forget it.
    I came here for support.
    I know where to get it now.
    Anyone who cares, let me know, and I will give you my private email address... most of you who know me well have it already.

    You may return to polishing your tiaras now.

    Becca,

    I really hope you don't go!!! I simply can't make it any clearer than that!!

    Yes I can make it clearer! You helped me when I first got here! ALOT! I hav seen you continue to help people since I have been here! I think this board would be at a loss if you left. Please don't go!

    That is clearer!

    I'm not trying to be a whiny baby... it sounds that way...
    whaaa.... but....
    Man, all stinkin day with knots in my stomach.
    I let people get to me, I guess. It's a thing with me. Back to the shrink, I suppose. But when someone openly criticizes something I am doing without knowing me or the HALF of it-- I am resentful.

    Donna, you are wonderful. Of course we can keep in touch. It will be difficult for me to tear myself away from this board, because I have spent so much time here, reflecting, gaining insight, hope, knowledge, lots of laughs (I've needed them!).
    Sure, this gaining control of my drinking problem is not always going to be sunshine and roses and smiley faces. I'm not an idiot. I am not in denial of the serious of my situation. But I am DEALING with it MY way.

    Crap, I'm not gonna sleep well tonight, I'm all upset....
    BUT I'm not drinking................

    Whatever you read on one thread or another, they are peoples' OPINIONS. If one or two or three people think some of the support is 'enabling' let them. Everyone does not have to agree with every post. I'm sure it wasn't meant to drive people away or criticize, it was an opinion as was indicated in the post.

    Please everyone calm down and don't take everything so personally. I know that is easier said than done here, especially because most if not all of us are feeling vulernable having given up or reduced spending time with one of our best friends(alcohol).

    There is room on this board for everyones thoughts. I hope noone considers leaving because they didn't like what one or a couple people posted.

    Let me add, we have developed this board/community into a family of sorts. Everyone has disagreements with their family from time to time, that doesn't make them any less your family does it?

    It may be prudent at this stage to re-read what it says under the heading of "Join a 30-day Moderation Event".

    It says "... perfect for those who have already completed a period of abstinence or are otherwise interested in maintaining a moderate alcohol intake. Share your goals an come on in".

    Doesn't that say it all?

    Can we now try and park this thing? It's giving me brain-strain.
