Reblog: Thanks Brett (about moderation)

Since i’m away this weekend, i’ve set up the blog to auto-post this. It’s from 2013, and it’s about moderation:

“Thanks Brett”

Brett: “Belle, I have been trying moderation. It absolutely does not work. I felt so deeply for you in your last post about that. It doesn’t work, Belle, at least not for me.

This is how I know, and why I am committed to fully quitting the booze and gaining true freedom…

Ask yourself:  If you have 2 glasses of wine (let’s be honest, truly “moderate”, “normal” drinkers generally have two drinks in any one sitting), will you want more?  >> keep reading here


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Perfect re-post today for me. I will be going on an incredible European cruise in less than 2 weeks and the thought (Wolfie’s evil voice) did cross my mind that since I would be out of my normal drinking environment why not have a glass or 2 of wine. What harm can there be? REALLY – when was 2 glasses ever enough – never and do I really want to spend one second of this trip hung over or so drunk I can’t remember any part of it. HELL NO!!!!!! SO Wolfie – EF you and your evil whispers.

  • Very timely for me, as I’m nearing Day 100. I read the post Brett refers to, as well as Sharon’s comment about sober anniversaries being a trigger. Wow. I’d definitely agree with that….it’s been on my mind A LOT since about day 85.
