    well I have trouble knowing my limits.. and alcohal makes me depressed. I've also hurt people when I've drank too much. it just doesn't bring out the best in me. so yes I'm try'n to settle down.

    I've been thinking the same thing... it's not really that good for me. And it pulls me away from some people I really care about.

    Mmm. Things to ponder...


    i tried to stop drinking...but it only lasted a week.

    Take it slowly.
    Start by quitting on Tuesdays, and then as you get comfortable with that, add more days to your sober list.

    I almost have Tuesdays down pat.


    Problem is that Tuesdays are wing night at Molly Bloom's... adn monday's and thursdays are wing night at Morty's... and Wednesdays at weavers arms....

    the way to quit things:
    -try to come up with the reasons why you need to quit NOW.

    like deep said in his other thread,
    you need to know why you want to quit.

    i have no intention to quit clubbing
    because i love dancing.

    but my reasons to quiting doing drugs or alcohol was because i did not want to rely on them for me to dance.
    to me, dancing is my expression of self.
    how i perceive the sound of music through my senses,,and which part of the sound i represent..or how the music makes me feel as a whole..

    and i like the feeling when i am on the flow with the music and dancing..such an intimate feeling. it is like dancing with the music itself..or having sex with the music itself.. LOL

    anyway, so i did not want other things to do with this (like alcohol or drugs)


    good luck.

    Don't quite entirely. Do what I did. Just cut down drastically. I was drinking a ridiculous amount from like Sept - Dec.

    But I decided just before New Years tht I was just going overboard. Not so much because of quantity of drinks, but more the frequency of drinking (ie: every single day, around 6 drinks a night).

    So I've manged to cut out drinking on weekdays, save for the odd beer if I go out to dinner, etc. And I still have a handful on the weekend, but I keep it to when I am in a drinking environment (club, bar), and not just sitting at home with nothing to do.
