    Re: Blah... Back again... When will this merrygoround ever end?

    A friend I was talking to today told me she was aware I had had many relapses, many many restarts.

    Guess what I got there in the end I kept trying, then I found the way I needed to get the addiction broken and eventually go AF. I know others have achieved the same too.

    9 years and a month or so to date.

    I tried so many times.

    I would however try to work on one thing at a time, primarily alcohol at first but try to get some good nutrition - good foods to start to help turn the tide on sugar. Protein, complex carbs, veg, fruit, omega 3s (these are very important, try to get it through food rather than supplementation). BUT I think getting alcohol out the equation will also help hugely.

    There is a saying KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid (this is not to say you are in any way stupid, please replace with any useful word), the sentiment is to avoid over thinking.
    I used the Sinclair Method to beat my alcoholic drinking.

    Drank within safe limits for almost 2 years

    Exactly. For sleep issues (or almost anything else) alcohol may seem like the answer in the immediate term, but in the long term it will only make the condition far worse. This I know from personal experience.

    How's it going, change?

    Sleep is another thing a doctor can help you with. What Mulberry said, plus exercise, melatonin, ear plugs. Have you tried a white noise machine??

    Hope you're ok. You, too, @frances
