    Something is seriously wrong!

    I'm not depressed, exhausted or moody.

    Something is seriously wrong. :H:H

    Day 12 AF and my world is slowly changing.

    The headaches have nearly gone, my energy is coming back and the fog is lifting. I am actually able to focus on something for more than 2 seconds at a time.

    My crazy dog (Bingo) who normally drives me insane, when he jumps at the door has become tolerable.

    I urge anyone contemplating giving up AL to seriously consider it.

    I think that my attitude and the support from everyone here has made a significant difference this time. I actually went into it this time telling myself that I can do this, rather than I'll see how I go. My mindset is totally different this time.

    I'll be totally honest, I've had cravings, but have managed to overcome them quite easily. I have been exercising a great deal and drinking heaps of water with lemon in it.

    I have taken "FULL" responsibility for my actions. I'm just sick of letting myself down.

    I must admit though, I did slip. I'm back on the bloody coffee!!!

    I've been off it for about 3 months and decided I needed at least one addiction. I think I can live with that.

    I'm not saying any of this to boast, that is not my nature.

    I just want to give a gentle nudge to anyone that knows that their life would be more enjoyable without AL. You can do it. I know you can. You know you can.

    But do it with the belief that you truly can beat this insidious bloody stuff.

    Thanks again to everyone who has helped me so far.

    I would be lost without you all.

    Cheers

    Brett.

    Hi Brett,
    I slipped up badly the last 2 days and was sick as a dog and sick of the whole Al demon. You inspire me.

    Fantastic job Brett. 12 days is a great start. The longer you are sober, the more you will wonder why you waited so long to start. If the pressure of friends, family, or co-workers gets strong, come visit this web site. It has worked wonders for me.

    Best regards.

    I'm with ya Brett. I think a large part of staying AF is determination. I do not pretend to understand all the reasons for AL abuse/addiction. I do know that with each passing day life looks better and I feel great.

    I agree. I let social/peer pressure trip me up in the past...never again. *I* know what is right for me. It just took a long time to realize it.

    Thanks for the "nudge"! I think realizing that you have to put work into it is when you will be successful.
    For so long I expected the sober fairy to come in and sprinkle sober dust on me while I slept. Did not happen.
