No More Alcohol In My Life!

After many days of looking in depth at my life my lifestyle choices I decided to abandon my drinking ways.

No more organic beer or for that matter any kind of alcohol intake for me.

Thank you Michael Nystrom my wonderful friend for being instrumental in this choice this path I am taking.

I want the whole patriot community on Daily Paul to know how much I love you all.

Each and every one of you.

Keep me in your prayers I need your support and I need to face you every day being sober and strong...

I do not want to be depressed and lethargic because alcohol is flowing in my veins and affects my heart beat and my activism in our sacred struggle for Liberty.

Here I say it out loud -- hope some of you with a similar addiction/s join me.

Love Liberty Peace!

From your keyboard to God's ears.

St Augustin formulated, "God is truth, justice, goodness and sublimity." If I can expose God, by speaking the truth, by working for justice, by seeking goodness, then what thanks do I deserve as a mere messenger.

Nonetheless, I appreciate your thanks and simply ask that you "Pay it forward." [Great movie BTW]

May your suffering only bring you understanding and compassion for the struggles of others.

Free includes debt-free!

Good for you!!

This will be my 18th year without any. It's kinda hard at first, but if you just define yourself as a non-drinker, you'll find 18 years pass like nothing. Don't let a slip-up stop you either!

Thank you so much Mike

terrific approach...

even on the very day Ron Paul becomes a president I shall not celebrate with alcohol -- I will keep reminding myself of that.

Pulling for you LL... be strong...

though I think I would have waited one more day until after New Years! Good luck.

Edit: I see the Google ad at the top of this thread is for Alcohol Rehab... wow, Google knows how to market.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

WOW

Google finds ways eh?

btw I am downtown with zero money in my pocket -- so I am safe for this night.

Thank you for your support.

Pretty scary huh!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Wonderful news, LL!

Green tea, esp. Gen-mai green tea, is the drink of my choice. It keeps me alert and gives me the extra vitamin C.

btw, St Francis Prayer song was beautiful. So refreshing to be able to rest a few minutes thoroughly enveloped in Good Will.

Thank song

That song totally opened me up from the very inside...the words of that prayer...

I love Chinese green teas...

Thank you for your feedback and support.

I will commit

I quit about 1 month ago...
No more coffee, No more alchol, and no more Nicotine.
.
Lets make a pact on this thread.
.
How did I stop...it was easy after understanding why and what causes the addiction. If you have a craving for something like the above mentioned...what is happening is a lack of ability to cope with ones stress. If you focus on the cause of the "WANT" you can get to the root of the problem.
.
If you want a beer for instance...ask yourself these 2 questions..
.
#1 Why do I want a beer... (Dig Down)
.
#2 What pain am I trying to cover up.
.
If you can honestly answer these two questions anytime you have a craving for anything....you will be able to handle the stress that is causing the addictive nature and address the issues the right way.
.
It is working for me...
.
You have to eliminate stress...this is the number one cause of addiction. For me...I turned to good food, and the gym. When I get a craving to try and mask some stress.....I ask myself the 2 above questions, and then I ask myself the 3rd question.
.
#3 You are on a path of good, why would you want to start over?
.
After you have a couple weeks under your belt...this question is BIG.

Nice

I'm quitting nicotine as well.

http://www.dailypaul.com/node/153338

For now, I'm keeping the other two; one thing at at time. But I am definitely going to lay off the smokes, and that is a commitment I'll make here, to both of you.

He's the man.

Love this thread

Thank you!

Terrific advice...I will read and cherish this thread all the informative and uplifting
comments contained here.

first 4 weeks will be key for me...

Happy 2011 Takeaction!

LL,

I sincerely hope that you are seeking help in your quest.

If you fail again and again, it simply means that you are trying, not that you are a failure.

When you stop failing it simply means that you have given up not that you have succeeded.

Baby steps and one day at a time.

Life is a journey ... No life ... No journey.

I want you to be my hero, so don't stop trying even after you have succeeded.

BE MY HERO ... even if it means that I have to be disappointed many times before you become my hero.

I will wait forever if that is what it takes.

Stay selfish in your thoughts until you are able to give.

I wish you well on your journey.

God Bless.

Thank you Rhino

Proud to call you my friend.

Words of wisdom -- Thank you!

Cyber hug flowing your way!

I hope you find lots of support

both here and in person. For so many people, it's how OTHERS pitch in and tide them over that makes the difference.

My dad was an alcoholic for many years, and when he quit, he joined Alcoholics Anonymous. Then for over thirty years he went to AA meetings and told new friends that he still wanted to drink. That he was still fighting it off. He was a better man for quitting the alcohol but that was part of his journey, too. I don't think he ever lost the temptation entirely.

I would like to quit sugar which is like an emotional crutch for me. I'm not ready to today.

Thank you

Very important what you just told me...and others who are reading your words and are in the same situation as I am and as your dad.

I know there are angels looking out for you.

Alcohol is a waste of your vital energy - a drain on your chi. Now you will get your wings!

God bless you on your path, LL.

well said

Thank you!

...yes now I will get my Wings!
