    thank you
    WHY? You don't moderate - you binge and don't want to stop. People who moderate don't binge. They have one glass of their preferred drink maybe once or twice a week or once or twice a month. And they stop there. No bingeing. No getting drink. And they don't harp on and on about it.....

    @scotskev81 - if you were just honest about your drinking and how it has affected your life there are folks here who are more than willing to help you - because that's why we're all here.
    Read @outofchances posts and see the honesty there and the real need to get his life back that he knows has been robbed by alcohol.

    Talking about going to bars & binging helps no-one.
    But this is a forum to share experiences and help one another & yes I suppose the ultimate goal is sobriety because we've just HAD ENOUGH....

    So perhaps think about what it is you really want - & what it was that brought you to put 'alcoholic' in a search engine ?
    And maybe come back ?

    to talk about alcohol and the options. other people's experiences. It's a topic I talk about.

    I didn't even notice there were all those other forums for moderations etc. so i'll go and amuse myself in those and stay away from the general chat one unless there is a point to be made

    Re: so has lockdown helped anyone on here

    The moderation boards aren't very active anymore, I do remember you saying that you didn't intend to quit forever which is fine, you're a grown man, the only problem is that most of us here have terrible issues with alcohol and one drink for us leads to many, many more that's why it's such a sore subject for us to read about, my husband can drink one or two and be fine he stops but he also would never even think of googling "how to stop drinking" just cuz he has no issues with it, all the best to you @scotskev81

    Re: so has lockdown helped anyone on here

    As far as I can tell from reports I have read the lock down is doing nothing for Alcohol consumption - Yes the pubs are closed but shop sales have increased as has domestic violence although there is no evidence these are related.

    My wife still likes a drink occasionally and returned from her "essential shop" with several bottles of Pino which she paid 3.69 for.

    A private landlord friend of mine has been forced to offer a 3 month rent release even tho the tenant is receiving a 80% furloughed wage, which hardly seems right!

    I spend 6 hours a day going thru School homework with my kids so whilst I abide by the lock down and social distancing, I am not its greatest fan!

    Be Safe,

    Cheers,

    Re: so has lockdown helped anyone on here

    I got told yesterday that alcohol consumption had risen with it all now being bought in the shops.

    At least in pubs it's possible to stop serving people or get them away from the bar if they are totally fkkked. at home that doesn't work.

    praying that everyone's ok. and I hope some can stop topping up their supplies and just not buy the stuff in the first place.

    Re: so has lockdown helped anyone on here

    I am going to refer everyone here to the Forum Rules:

    Tolerance for one another and for differing opinions is a priority.

    Asking a fellow member of this forum, in all caps, "WHY ARE YOU HERE?" is a direct violation of the Forum Rules. This site is called My Way Out. We do not endorse any particular method of treating AUD. If a member chooses not to embrace abstinence, members are expressly not permitted to pile on that person as has been done in this thread.

    Any further violations will result in temporary account suspensions.

    "WHY ARE YOU HERE?"
    @scotskev81 @Forum Manager apologies - for what I suppose amounts to my shouting and the knock-on effect of Kev being ganged up on.

    Talking about looking forward to getting back to the pub to binge drink on a forum for struggling alcoholics irritated me.

    However I suppose if you just want to discuss alcohol with no actual goal in mind that's your prerogative.
    .... but that's not why I've hung around MWO for 7 years .
    Giving support to those who have a constant battle trying to quit alcohol & stay quit is just more important to me.
    I won't post on this thread again.

    WHY ARE YOU HERE/
    @Forum Manager and @scotskev81 - I apologize as well. The comment was made with the hope that Kev would take a good look at his "problem" and perhaps start to address it, not just discuss it. Obviously, it came across as shouting and perhaps as accusing.

    I have been a member of MWO for over 10 years and have given endless support to people who are struggling and really want to stop drinking. I will continue to do that whenever needed within the "Forum Rules".

    I too will not post again on this thread.
