I don't know why ginger beer has to have the word beer to it. I find it irritating, lol. I am going to make some myself sometime. I have the ginger already. It is basically fresh ginger, sweetener of some sort and carbonated water. I can have it in a glass if I want to. I personally won't go near something labled non-alcoholic. It seems to be more and more on the displays lately in the stores, ugh. It is just too scary for me. I just can't risk how good that I have it now.

The process of drinking is pushed on us from a young age " I am all grown up" to its a party lets drink etc. the mind set is good friends good times, alcohol and that's marketing plain and simple. Being all grown up means controlling your life and choices, having fun means being of clear mind to appreciate what you are doing and feeling great means waking up the next morning knowing what where and how the night went and not having raging hangovers that rob you of most of the days following.
Being AF is not a punishment you are fostering on yourself but a normal natural way to live

I used to be so embarrassed by my recycling bin filled with wine bottles that I actually put some in the trash where it was bagged and hidden. Has anyone else done that? Now my bin is much lighter. @hwg63 Welcome and congratulations on 19 days! I am inspired by each and every one of you here!

it does take awhile for brain chemistry to learn to stand on it's own. and sometimes, the alcohol has been the solution to issues. so if you still have issues, or feelings, or chronic feeling that you don't fit in your skin, and you stop using alcohol to feel better, you still need to find a new solution. if that makes sense. it did in my head
