    I’m doing dry Jan - first time in many years since I was pregnant I am planning to go a long time without wine. I’m excited to really get healthy this month.

    @donimfp After about a month my urge to drink started to lessen. The more I dealt with my feelings instead of drinking myself stupid the easier it got for me. Also, about 1.5 to 2 months in is when I really started seeing major changes in my health and weight, so it made it easier as things started getting better.

    Wow! This is great. I already decided on a personal goal of cutting back with balance. This is perfect :)
    I am a data collector in all areas of my life and understand that when we cutback in one area another area most likely will increase and produce a net outcome of null.

    I found the book you recommended on Audible and downloaded it for free with a "credit". Thank you for the recommendation. I will check it out.

    Good morning! No alcohol for me yesterday. I really wanted to start the New Year with clear head, energy and with sense of a new beginning. Wishing everyone Happy New Year and the best of luck to all - myself included!

    I had some wine with my husband yesterday, but will be free of alcohol until the weekend.

    I'm in. My health downfall is drinking every night. Someone said they will limit drinking to weekends and really watching it then. I will do the same and see what happens.
