Haven't touched a drop in...

    You need to decide that you don't drink anymore. If you constantly need to refresh your commitment then you're still a prisoner to drink.

    Try Allen Carr's book. It helped me to get in the right frame of mind. The book itself is a hard read. I quit after a couple of chapters and downloaded the audiobook instead. Listened to it over the course of a week. I was sceptical about it, bit it's well worth listening to and if it works for you then afterwards you won't need to refresh your commitment every so often.

    Good stuff riddles. I doubt there is any time with more suggestion and influence trying to get you to drink than Christmas so, well done

    It is funny that one (not ha ha). I notice some people who get a bit ratty and contrary in a way that I wouldn’t have seen when I was drinking and would have assumed it was me with the issue.

    Did anybody experience joint pain after quitting. I have been prone to gout attacks in the past but since quitting I have experienced pain ad hoc in different joints? Thx
