Hey all! Looking to make some changes in my life. I enjoy


Hey all!
Looking to make some changes in my life.
I enjoy my drink.
I drink at least twice. Week after soccer. 3 beers in parking lot. But my issue is no stop button. So I’ll come home and half half a bottle of wine or more. So there is that a few times a week.

In regards to weekend drinking... depends what’s going on. I Have a baby so we don’t go out. I sit drink if I’m alone with him, never do that! But when we have guests or go to friends I drink and get drunk. SOMETIMES the next day I do the whole “ hair of the dogs back “ or what ever it’s called.

At work I deal with clients and schmooze. So that’s a beer at lunch or two maybe once a week.

Most definitely not an alcoholic, but I have an abuse problem.

How do I gain more will power to stop after 4 drinks?

Glad you are posting! It sounds like you want to change and are looking for direction? That's great! I heard recently, "Nothing changes, if nothing changes." What do you believe should change?

Sometimes I know what I believe should change but I am stubborn and will NOT change. However, I have had some success with "HALT". When I have an urge to do a behavior I believe is wrong, I ask, "Are you H-hungry? A-angry? L-lonely? or T-tired?" Sometimes, I need to eat, call a friend, read my Bible, pray, take a nap, or exercise, rather than do what I know I should not. Hope this helps and please keep posting!
