    Morning friends and lurkers.

    It's a new month, the perfect time to make new goals, renew our commitments and revise our plan.
    Last month I was not successful with my goal of being AF for 30 days but I was successful in being Sugar Free for 30 + days and beyond so I'm pretty chuffed about that.
    Lets make every day in September count.

    Strength and love to all:h

    september

    Dearest modders - another new month awaits fresh andd new with no mistakes in it yet. Lets make it a good one.

    Thanks to Deebs yet again for starting us off, as she so often kindly does.

    I too had wanted to be AF in August, but with the death of MIL and what have you the timing was off. I am not concerned that I was not AF, as I was able to moderate well through a period of regular drinking which I dont usually do. To date I have followed the SUNBEAM occasional drinking thing and wondered how I would do if I moderated and drank more often. Well, it seems I can do it pretty well and especially when one considers the events and emotions surrounding it. I am dead pleased with myself. That said I am back to generally not drinking and making sure I am ok with that. September will not be an attempt to be AF as there are a couple of events at which I will want to have a couple of drinks, so it will be the normal, try and avoid it most of the normal time and just drink when a special occasion falls. As my best mates wedding falls this weekend, there is no way I am missing a little bit of Champagne then.

    I am thinking very seriously about having an AF October because no events fall then and its a good time before Christmas to do it. I am also thinking I might have a couple of sessions a week with a personal trainer just for that month to really up my fitness level still further and motivate me.

    So those are my thoughts at the present time. Life is good. I am off for a long weekend tomorrow. First to see a recently bereft FIL, then to BEST FRIENDS wedding, so emotionally rollercoasterish. I have elected not to drink WED and THURS and SUN. Just to allow myself the two days of the weddings FRI and SAT. So friends...wish me luck.

    I wont be posting for a few days now, so will catch up with all your September news when I return...sorry for long message, just wanted to have a waffle.....

    LOVE MOO

    Hey everybody,
    Deebs, both spring and fall are energizing! We are holding those ends down.

    Moo, I also am of a mind for more AF time, but I don't like to think of more than two weeks at a time. It just seems too long. I could easily go longer than that, but I don't want to "have" to.

    Hey SaraSmiles, how are you today? Are those kiddos back in school yet?

    IN a way I know what you mean SUNBEAM. When I originally did my two months AF it seemed liked a very long time to start with, but on the other hand once my brain accepted that I meant what I said it came easier. There is a period of two weeks in september I can get in completely AF hopefully. I think your reclection might be a good way to look at AF time though, in smaller blocks of time. x

    Hi felllow modders. I am starting into week four and so far so good. I am being very careful about this and sticking rigidly to my plan of action. This includes another 30 days AF starting 1st Oct so Mooderator I will buddy up with you if you decide to go that route for Oct. Very early days I know but I am having no problems with cravings or stoping at my predeterminded 1 or 2 drinks. I do however need to keep an eye on the frequency because it would be easy to up the days which would be a really bad idea for someone who was a daily drinker for years. Still taking the sups, eating healthily and exercising a few times a week. So far so good. Wishing you all the best for healthy, happy, sober September.

    Mad Mummy,
    Welcome back! I hope those (long) school holidays created some good memories. How did the business of alcohol consumption go for you?

    KTAB, I am so glad to have your company in the low frequency camp.

    Hi Modders,
    No, alas, Sunbeam, the kids don't go back to school until Sept. 9!!! I am enjoying them about 70% of the time. It's tough to fill the days when I'm trying not to spend too much money, and they are restless and wild. I took all three to the pediatrician's this morning for check ups. What a chaotic scene. They simply can't sit still...the doctor thought they were fabulous, and they are. But they have so much energy!

    I was AF for two days, and today I started thinking about wanting a drink at around noon. Not good. I held off until 5:00, and have now stopped at 2. But it was definitely drinking in response to mood, which I KNOW is not healthy, and yet I find so compelling.

    The boys are wild and screaming even now, and I must go. Love to all. Sara

    My craving hits in at work at 4:00. Driving home about 5:30, I think there is no way to resist. But each evening I say I'll take the supps, drink a can of something AF, check my e-mail, log in here, and then decide whether to drink. I've done all that, it is 7:00, and the craving is totally gone. So Day 14 drawing to a close. It is so encouraging to read of all of your successes. And even when there are little stumbles, it is wonderful to see you get right back up. Thank you everyone and have a good evening.

    So glad your dad is getting out of the hospital DeeBee. Have a great time at the wedding Moo. It sounds like everyone is doing really well. You seem to be handling your cravings very constructively Maisie. The being tired after work is when I have thoughts too, so I'm making sure I have a snack then. My husband got home from his trip and I have gotten back on track and have been AF for 4 days. It seems like I only have problems if I drink more than a couple days in a row. If I stick with just an occasional drink I do fine. I'm also going to the gym and eating very well.
