    First Day Posting

    I am new to posting. I feel that I am drinking too much Pino Grigio so I started taking the supplements a month ago and the Topomax about 2 weeks ago, still on 25. I probably was drinking 3-4 bottles a week and want to cut back. I usually can make it about 5 days and then will have a glass and have been ok with that for a month. Last night I had 3 glasses and did not feel too good this morning and my son and husband get angry with me. So today is a new day and now that I can post I look forward to the support. I would like to try and make it the 30 days AF but can't seem to get past 5. I will continue to try.:new

    Welcome Helpwanted ---- I have had the same struggle. I was on day 5 yesterday (again) and thought I was feeling strong enough to make it through, but gave into the wine calling for "just one glass" ... that lead to the whole bottle. I'm pleased that I've been able to have many more AF days since finding this site a couple of months ago, but would seriously like to do 30 days as recommended.
    So, what do you say ... let's give it a good try together! You will find lots of support here, and in the "General Discussion" section, there is a AF Army thread where you will find a lot of supportive people.

    Hi New Day,
    Thanks for the support. I am willing to try the 30 days together. I was just reading the AF post and they are very interesting. So do we just join in and start replying to the post on there?

    Hi HelpW,

    Think I welcomed you on another thread, but there's no such thing as too much welcome!!! You mentioned that you're on the supps and topa, and wonder if you've read RJ's book and/or have thought about the hypno cd's? I've found them very helpful. They really helped set my drinking mind in a healthier direction the first 30 days. I'll admit I was very faithful and listened to them according to the schedule outlined. That was a tad easier for me as I don't have little ones at home who demand my attention. Anyway, one of the most helpful aspects from a long term view is that you can pull them out periodically for a good brain wash and wax. I feel like I have the tools for long term control which I never had before. In any event, I wish you well --
