Congratulations for giving upYouve both done really well. Im not much of a drinker now but do still drink occasionally. But if its anything like giving up the fags (which i did in 1990) then i think your very brave cos i found that really hard.
That sounds familliar except I'm on wineIn my case I've always enjoyed a drink, when the anxiety started I drank more to help ease the symptoms but soon learnt it was only temporary relief. Lately though I have been drinking more as I have really slipped back down the ladder. Also because I am so bored in the house in the evening. I recognize this problem can become destructive and aim to stop. I don't crave drink it seems though once I start around 9 pm I seem to think hey this feels good lets have some more. Im only on beer but still thats not an excuse, time to take a long hard look at myself I reckon.
