      September Mod Squad

      Wow, a new month and Autumn is on it's way in North America. Hope everyone is doing well. I slept in a bit and just drinking a bit of coffee this morning...sitting here thinking about my drinking this weekend. Friday night I had one glass of wine and really didn't feel like having any more, but got frustrated and upset about something and proceeded to open another bottle. Did not finish the bottle but drank enough to get rather tipsy, and also to suffer a hangover. Not good. Started to tie one on last night as well, but stopped after two (glasses). Feel fine this morning, but know I can't continue to use AL when I feel overwhelmed. I had gotten past that for a long time, and I look back and think maybe I just didn't have any bad days, lol. Not true, but I also had made a commitment and I stuck with it...time for me to do some real soul searching.

      LG,
      Not sure if you have ever used the drinktracker but I have found it incredibly helpful at times. Like someone journaling food intake, when we journal/record how many drinks we had, it can help keep us more accountable I think.

      We are on vaca and had had two glasses of wine (which I try to limit myself to). We got back to our place and decided to have a "nightcap". Beautiful night, sitting outside, people watching...and we ordered two wines. The waitress was taking a while and suddenly my husband looked at me and he said, "I've had enough". I really don't want that third glass". So he asked another waitress to find our waitress and cancel the order and we left. There was a part of me that REALLY knew that was my cut off point too. Had I had that third I would be feeling it today. I am wondering if I were committed to the drinktracker if I would have even attempted to try to have the third one. I think I will commit myself to tracking there this month. Why don't you join me LG and anyone else who wishes to.

      Good morning LG. Rather than beat yourself up I think you should be feeling good that you were aware enough to make the choice to stop. Great job! I read somewhere that with lessons in life if you miss your goal you should not get down on yourself but learn from the outcome. It looks like you are continuing to experience and explore your relationship with AL. As someone who is new to trying this that seems amazing and positive.

      I know exactly what you mean about using it when feeling overwhelmed. Today I am going to work really hard on just feeling the feeling and reminding myself that it isn't that bad.

      Hi Eve. I have used the drink tracker. I don't think it would have made any difference Friday night though. I *knew* I was going over the limit. I didn't just have too many and then say, whoops! I set out to get tipsy and I got there. Again, it was a coping thing--thinking it would dull the anger and frustration I was feeling. It did. However, it's not the kind of coping I want to be doing...I don't like the after-effects, nor the out of control feeling.

      Hi Gettingreal. Welcome to the Mod Squad. It's always great to see new "faces". Yes, at least I was able to control it last night, and it wasn't that difficult because I already regretted Friday night. I am on a journey and learning all the time...that what's good about coming here and being accountable, for me.

      Have a great Sunday everyone.

      Hi Everybody!

      LG, thanks for starting the September Mod Squad. I am sending you good mental energy for fun, soul-satisfying things you can do to have a happy week of vacation.

      I am spending every spare minute gazing at the Gulf, as Wed. We leave FL for points west, meeting new grandson, checking in with the great grandparents, our adult children, and preparing for the fall events.

      Happy Labor Day to us all... FF

      Safe travels, FF. Congrats on the new grandson!

      I love waking up feeling good. Might have to put a whole list of things on frig "Benefits of AF". I actually had 2 beers playing golf yesterday but an 8:00 dinner of popcorn & wine became popcorn & 1 AF beer that I didn't even finish. Hence, TMH, why you feel good today!!!!

      Eve - I'll commit to the DrinkTracker with you this month. My Sat. night wasn't particularly good but not terrible either.

      LG - have a great vacation also! I know that feeling of being overwhelmed.

      Welcome, GettingReal, love your attitude! Tell us more about you.

      TMH

      Good morning everyone!

      TMH, let us know how the golf went.

      Getting Real, you bring up a good point about paying attention to our feelings. TMH has mentioned a weight control book which I also have, cannot remember the British author's name at the moment, which comes with a CD, called "I Can Make You Thin," I think, and in the CD he points out that emotions are signals that we need to pay attention to. We do not need to let the emotions control us, I think he said, but we DO need to figure out what they are trying to tell us.

      But it is pretty hard to figure it out, sometimes...and even if I can figure it out...ok, so I am dreading making poor decisions on the packing I need to do today...exactly HOW am I to cope with it?

      So I got out the suitcases and now I am going to the beach! will fill the cases later...

      Happy Tuesday! FF

      Hi modders, I can't believe we are in september already! welcome gettingreal!

      Hey FF, I'm going to look into some of the herbal teas like you mentioned, you made it sound so good! I hope you have good trip, and get everything done before you leave!

      TMH, good to see you around. How did you do in the tournament?

      Cashy? HabDef? are you two out there? Let us know how things are going. BTW, what happened to trixie? I haven't seen her around any of the boards so I wish she would check in, or maybe I missed something?

      My af break is going well, there are some things I'm trying to work through but I'm somewhere around the 3 week mark with it.

      Hello, Moders!

      Haven't checked in since last month, sorry to say. And I'm pressed for time here today, trying to squish 5 days of work into 3 since it looks like I'll be on the road again Friday.

      Hope everyone had a great weekend.
      D

      Hi all. Didn't check in yesterday because it seems like I am the only one posting here sometimes, lol. There were no new posts all day long when I checked, so I thought I'd give everyone a rest.

      Things are ok. I'm enjoying my time off...just relaxing mostly. And sleeping in, hee hee. I was AF yesterday, and just one glass of wine on Sunday. Not sure what days I will be AF this week, since I don't have to work...rubbing it in a little. However, I don't have plans to "celebrate" or overindulge.

      Nice to see you D, hope you had a good weekend too. FF, dg, TMH...thank you for the pep talk. I really appreciate this community.

      Have a great day everyone.
