    Gang,
    Lots of good modding things to tell. Had 1 drink after the Temptations concert - ordered a white and a red for hubby and the bartender brought 2 reds. So he corrected the mistake but gave us the 2nd red for free. Hubby didn't want it and the BT said "Well, I'll only have to waste it" so he left it. Hubby absolutely DIDN'T want it and the old me would have scarfed it up in a hurry but you know what? With modding I didn't want it either as I had had one drink hours earlier with dinner and didn't want a 3 drink total and didn't want 2 wines back to back under an hour...so...the mod life is the good life...that little red wine got wasted!!
    Went to a potluck dinner with church members Sat. and it was amazing how one guy and one gal kept drinking and drinking. I actually had to CRINGE because I could see the old me in her. After they finished off the 3 bottles for the 8 of us she went to her hidden stash and kept drinking!! Interesting that my hubby didn't observe it at all but I was so aware of it and so thankful it wasn't me behaving like that. I had 2 over the course of pre-dinner/dinner/after dinner. Sipped slowly with water in between and awoke the next day with No remorse, NO hangover and SO thankful I wasn't the guy or gal overdrinking. Yes...the mod life IS the good life.
    Hugs,
    Eve11

    Great Stories, Eve...


    I'm proud of you.
    Some might wonder why we choose to live like this, as if Modding is such an effort; but it's not any more an effort than going AF in the early stages.
    Eventually this is second nature; we limit our intake; we smile and thank our lucky stars when we see drunks behaving like our "old" selves.
    The Mod IS the Good LIfe...and with some care, WE CAN HAVE IT ALL!!!

    Hi Kid and Delta.

    Eve-that's a great post. Thank you.

    I'm hoping to hop across and join the mods, but plan on taking it carefully. Am thinking about my 'rules'

    Off to bed - night!

    Kid. Jeez! Just got finished reading in "research." I didn't feel the need to add my two cents there as I think enough of our modders got their point across eloquently! We are adults. We make choices everyday. Everyone needs to make their choices whether it be what to read and believe, how to live their lives, and everyone has a voice. Your post, Kid, was placed in the correct section. They have the choice of whether they want to read it, believe it, or ignore it. Do they turn off the TV everytime an ad for alcohol comes on? If you watch football, isn't every other ad a beer ad?

    Delta - you sound absolutely radiant! Good for you. I've never been clubbing and dancing before without a few in me. I think that would be the biggest trigger for me. What freakin' control!!!!!!! Awesome.

    Eve, I'm so glad to see your modding worked well for you this weekend. Yes, when we see others lapping up the AL, it's easy to back off of it and thank our lucky starts it ain't us!

    Hi Lila! Miss you. Stop back or pm or something.

    Deebs - Never wake boarded before. I would assume it takes great physical coordination to do that. Ok, I guess maybe that's not for me then, but it sounds fun.

    We got a burst of some warm weather this weekend, and it was great. Lost an hour of sleep, but still, that means springtime is just around the corner.

    Hi B, cyclefan (yes, losing an hour is a killer), TG (are you really only 18? Very wise for your age, my girl), Sun (Sunbeam Style!!!!) and Ask, have a great day.

    Long Overdue Hello

    Hi all:

    Have been reading but haven't had the "mental space" to post. Day off today, so feel like I'd like to share two things.

    The first was a hard experience. I have been spending time with a girlfriend who learned that a guy she had been dating on and off since November was found dead in his apartment - due to alcohol. He was 44, divorced and had a 9 year old son. My friend had stopped seeing him about a month ago because she couldn't have the drama of a active drinker in her life (she has a young son as well and has been through a divorce with her crazy husband). She feels terribly responsible and guilty about his death, and of course the lack of details are driving her crazy. It make me so sad . . and at the same time so grateful for all the good MWO does for folks. . . I guess I don't have people close to me who could die from alcohol use, and this experience made me both more aware of the risk to some of my friends on these boards, and more grateful for MWO and my situation of being able to manage my alcohol use.

    On the up side, we had a spring like couple of days and I've been running into people I haven't seen for a while and I keep getting this reaction "You look TERRIFIC!" to which I mumble, "thanks I lost some weight" but I was thinking about it the other day, and I think its more than that. My folks noticed it when I was in Florida. I look younger. I think the "weight' but also I think there is another kind of lightness - a spiritual unencumbering - of the negativity and guilt : I want to say those feelings were associated with drinking but I think that's too simple - those feelings were associated with many aspects of my life and I feel like I've just let a lot of the negativity and guilt GO. I am happier. I feel proud of myself and accomplishments, in a way that I didn't before. I am good.

    So I wanted to share that too.

    You all are an important part of my journey, and I carry you in my heart EVERY SINGLE DAY.
    With love,

    Ask

    Ask,
    I am so glad to hear that. Besides not drinking, can you share what else is going on?
    For me, not drinking has given me an unexpected feeling of empowerment. And...I have more time!
