    Hi I'm a Newbie

    Welcome P...

    You have found a great bunch of people here. I have been posting on this site since Feb 14th...I have read the book, taking some supps, and have decided to go Topa free.

    You also have found us in the middle(well...not quite the middle, huh girls?)
    of March Madness. Some of us are trying to abstain for a month. Everyone is non judgemental and relates to what a struggle to moderate drinking is.

    Please read past posts and you can get a feel for the group and the "approach" Pick up the book, it explains the approach as far as supps, excercise, topa etc...

    Hi I'm a Newbie

    Welcome!
    The program is working great for me! My biggest mistake was not fully jumping in from the beginning. I bet many others would agree. If possible, if you are serious and ready and have read the posts enough to decide that this looks like a program designed for you, DO IT!!.
    Order or download the book, make a dr. appt, order or buy the supplements at a health food store (or they are under "companion products"), get the cd's...although that's the one I'm kinda slacking on... and here I am giving advice...uh oh.!
    Anyhow, I did all the other stuff. I am doing the topamax. I'm currently on day 14. I have had a total of 6 drinks in 14 days. I used to drink an average of probably a bottle of wine or more a day!! That would be...14 x 5 drinks per btl...70 drinks!!!
    HOLY CRAP!!!!!! OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS!!! What a lush!!!
    70 drinks!!! Whoa!!! I just freaked my self out.
    No bloody wonder I have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks.
    geesh.
    OK, I'm Ok. a hem
    to answer your question, the program works. i feel sheepish
    luv, becca

    Hi I'm a Newbie

    Yes this program works. But just like anything, you have to be committed to working it. I would recommend getting the book and following as closely as possible. All aspects of the program are designed to work together, however, many people on the board have had success using parts of the book tailored to their needs. Best of luck to you in your journey.

    Hi I'm a Newbie

    Becca's calorie count...

    Oh Becca...that is so funny (well you know what I mean...)!

    I don't even want to add up all the calories in all the beers that I was drinking...uggh! I think I was even lying to myself how many I could actually put away in a day!
    Happy Sober Thusday (day 2) All,
    Love, Tammie

    PS: -- Welcome, this is a great program and it does work but you have to work it also and put the effort and will into it! What helps so much is this site with all of the wonderful friends on here!

    Hi I'm a Newbie

    I am scared, and I am new!

    Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you know I found this website this morning and I have been reading tons of threads today. I have cried and I have laughed! That tampon box hiding is hysterical- HOWEVER doesnt beat one of my old hiding spaces--- which I will tell later, LOL!

    I have wanted to admit my alcoholism to 'someone'- ANYONE- and I feel that after reading today about your group, I am ready to start the process of taking control of my life and my behavior. I need to work on getting healthy!

    I have never spoken to anyone about this before. I am scared. I am going to continue to read here. Thank you!

    Missed it? It's only March 2nd. It's never too late! You can still get a good solid 30 days behind you. Welcome to the board! Gina
