Hi Friends, I'm still here reading your messages. I am stuck in bed with the flu so I don't have anything to add to the conversation. But still reading your posts.

New to the 'group'. I abstained from alcohol for three years until Nov of 2018.
I have once again given up booze as of Dec 27, 2019

Popping my head up to say hi and hope everyone is doing well with their goals! Hope you get well soon, @RubyRed427!
A few days ago, I hit 2 years AF I looked back at my journal entries for that first month...the Less Alcohol thread started by @RubyRed427 was instrumental in getting me started on this journey. I am so thankful for that thread and for access to a safe & encouraging place to post.
The book The Naked Mind was recommended in that thread, and I would like to pass on that recommendation to anyone else that wants to be AF. I read the book within the span of a few days back in Jan 2018 and it was a game changer for me. I had a few rough spots that first month, but the book had changed the way I think about alcohol and I cruised right on past those mental speed bumps and kept going. I had some concerns about enjoying activities without alcohol, especially during the holidays each year, but every single thing I was worried about never materialized.
Life is so much better in every single way, and there is nothing that I lost when I stopped drinking.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Awesome! The key words in that are "want to be AF" I kidded myself for years thinking I wanted to be AF but in truth I don't want it,want it so I'd do so many crazy things to try to moderate which only made me drink more it seemed, congratulations to you💗 6:42 am in Vegas another 24 of FREEDOM for me!

Thanks @kcn2bluesky for that very inspirational post. I have read many books but I have not read that one. I'm going to order it right now.
