你应该戒酒吗?

可以戒酒。没人需要喝酒。

如果我发现了一份停止饮酒的问卷,上面写着这样的话,我的生活会更轻松,我会更快,更轻松地想到清醒的想法:

  1. Do 您 drink more than 您 want to? It’s OK to stop.
  2. Do 您 think about drinking all the time? I did too until I stopped. I send out daily emails of support (anonymous).​
  3. Do 您 find it hard to quit? I did too. All the more reason to stop now.
  4. Do 您 feel better when 您 don’t drink? Not at first, maybe, but later—after seven to nine days 清醒 , once all the booze and bullshit is gone, once 您’re hydrated again. Do 您 feel better then? Good. It’s OK to stop.
  5. ​Do 您 feel better 清醒 than on a day with a hangover? Good. That’s enough of a reason. You can stop.
  6. ​Does 您r brain tell 您 to drink again to celebrate 您r sobriety? Mine too. It’s OK, 您 can stay stopped.
  7. ​Can 您 plan to drink again in some mysterious future time like 20 years from now if that’s what it takes? Yes, 您 can NOT drink NOW.
  8. ​Do 您 have to be an alcoholic to benefit from quitting drinking? No. 酒是麻醉剂。它改变了我们。它麻木,变钝并最终导致中毒。
  9. 有人喝酒吗?没有。
  10. ​Do 您 maybe need some advice and help and support to stop and stay stopped? Yes, I did. ​

Note: If 您 score 1 out of 10 or higher, it’s OK to quit. Try it for 100 days. See how 您 feel.

美女

我想将此放在网上,以追究自己的责任。我想记录一下我头上的声音。我厌倦了考虑喝酒。上次饮用日期:2012年6月30日

  • 我几乎泪流满面地意识到,我已经离开了伴侣,做了正确的事情。他说,他每天找借口喝酒’t got a problem he just enjoys it. I got dragged in. I pleaded with him to cut back and help me cut back. But nothing changed. I left him 是terday and this 文章 miraculously appeared on my feed this morning. Thank 您 for confirming this had to happen. Day 1!!

  • Does 您r brain tell 您 to drink again to celebrate 您r sobriety? Mine too. It’s OK, 您 can stay stopped.

    天啊!这件事在我身上发生了很多次! 7天?好极了!喝!
    19天?好极了!喝!
    1418天?我不会喝酒的!

  • 今天又是我的第一天!总有一些借口推迟不喝酒…我将在儿子之后进行100天挑战赛’s wedding, AFTER my first cruise, AFTER the holidays and the list goes on and on! I really am tired of being so consumed with the thought of drinking! 美女 , I read 您r book quite a while back and am about to read it again! I also ordered the “It’s about time” bracelet as a reminder to stay AF. I am excited and will stay in touch about my progress! Thanks to everyone for sharing 您r ups and downs! I need more 清醒 tools for sure!

  • 特里x。 #8。用毒剂麻醉大脑。当我感到压力和生气时,沃尔夫就敲门了,我放开了他。暂时没有痛苦,别’不要以卑鄙的态度。第二天总是感到内gui,感觉像狗屎一样,走了三天,没有重复。没有更多的沃尔夫,没有更多的毒药。 X

  • 这份问卷要好得多,然后是黑白的。它’没关系,那会没事的,我喜欢整个‘not now’前提与艰巨‘forever’.

  • It’s crazy to live a life where 您r head and 您r heart battle EVERY.DAMN.DAY. I’我挣扎,但我赢了’t give up. I can’t wait until the battle ends and freedom begins. I love 您r blog and daily emails. I imagine the book is amazing as well. Thank 您 for being out there…

  • 你好我已经潜伏了很长时间了。嗨我可以’似乎没有得到。我清醒了10年,做了康复和AA,我可以’再做一次。我可以’t. I really can’t。我宁愿死也不愿再这样做。但是我需要停下来,我可以’不明白为什么我可以’不超过几天。我知道不喝酒的一切。我住AA,读过书,看过治疗师,有支持。我已经喝了两年半了,我真的想再次停下来。为什么可以’t I?

    无论如何,我只是想说声打招呼并停止潜伏。

  • It’可以不喝酒。今天70天。我从没想过我可以走7天,没关系70。当所有上述问题/陈述引起我共鸣时,我知道我遇到了问题。 100天指日可待!!

  • 我很欣赏这个“is it okay to stop” quiz. Partly, it was like I 需要 允许 to try it out, not-drinking. So far (day 24) t has not been easy, but to my surprise, I think I like it.

  • 很棒的问卷。你不’t have to wait around until 您 have this huge problem to quit. People might assume that I had this massive problem because I don’t drink now and that’可以它足够大,现在我的生活变得更好。谢谢!

  • 我说谎清单,但我不知道’t know that I 需要 reassurance that it was ok to stop until after I had stopped. Stopping drinking was necessary for me because I was miserable. A few days in, once my head cleared, was when I 需要 to know that it was ok to stay stopped and that my life would be better for it.

  • I’ve切回但仍然避风港’t quit. WHY?!?! Can’我只是这样做吗?信息很明显。这些东西是毒药,但我一直在“one more”. I’ve been drinking for 45 years. Maybe the length of time makes it worse? all of 您 SMART people in 您r 20s 30s and 40s doing this!! Bravo – 您 inspire this old lady. I am still working toward zero.

    • 您 may find that 您 do better with more support. if what 您’re trying isn’t working, then 您 add in more tools and more supports until 您 find out what’s right for 您. hugs from me xo

  • 通常我告诉别人我’我不喝酒的反应是,“Oh I didn’t know 您 had a problem.” Of course I did, but I find it amusing that the idea of not drinking just because 您 don’不想对人如此陌生。我放弃了很多尝试退出的尝试,因为接受所提供的饮料比解释自己更容易。我喜欢这样的想法“permission”停止,不管原因!

  • 我不再去参加AA会议了’称自己为酒鬼不自在– only bc I don’相信我。我可以自欺欺人吗?可能或者,可能就是“you don’一定要戒酒才能从戒酒中受益”

    • i think 您 can look at it like if 您’re continuously 清醒 , then what 您’re doing is working. and if 您 aren’t, then 您 add in more tools and more supports, even if one tool (AA) only contributes 18% it’仍然是工具箱中的工具。它’有可能去开会而不说话,只是听。它’s a tool … huglets xo

  • 我在遇到美女之前就尽力了。我之所以能够继续喝酒是因为我会屈从于最脆弱的原因。这房子现在很干净。房子很脏。您已经完成了该讨厌的电子表格。有人惹我生气。有人对我说了些好话。等等,现在我’m looking forward to Day 900 armed with all of my anti-Wolfie tools and techniques. Thank 您 美女 ! **Sober is the new black.** **Sober is the new cool.** xoxo 罗斯玛丽.

  • 太好了!!我喜欢数字8:“酒是麻醉剂。它改变了我们。它麻木,变钝并最终导致中毒。” Wow. That’s EXACTLY what it does. Thank 您!

  • 我记得当我试图弄清楚是否应该继续阅读时读过这篇文章。” moderating” my drinking—( I wasn’真的适可而止’一点点地融化了。以便’就是我所说的)或尝试停止。我真的没有’t think I totally “needed”然后就停下来毕竟,我离底部很远(而且我变得很低),所以这是进步…。对?然后我读了这个测验,这是黑暗房间里的灯亮了!我像–damn she’是的。我喜欢这个!我希望我可以将其打印出来并粘贴到很多人的额头上!

  • 确实确实变得越来越容易。它’今天是星期五,过去我对如果在星期五晚上不去做会感到非常焦虑’t drink. Now it’只是另一个夜晚,’好的。星期六很美。

  • 美女,我今天第34天… I feel strong but I know I will not always feel this way and I would love to have an audio copy of 您r book that I could listen to while I take my dog on long walks! Thank 您 for being there.

  • 如果我几年前偶然遇到这些问题,那么可以避免这么多的悲伤… they aren’威胁,恐惧或羞辱…他们实际上使我发笑,几年前也会… but now I can’强调希望我早点停止或“what if?”。取而代之的是,我将不胜感激,我会停下来,并每天努力地使用我的工具包将我留在这里!

  • It’如果您有严重的问题,中型的问题或有一点点的暗示,喝酒总会让人感到不适,可以退出。仅仅因为有些白痴可能会让您对AF的生活感到困难,如果说的白痴告诉您因为凉爽而跳下桥,您会吗?负!酒精很好,直到’s not. But let’s not forget that it’s ‘positive’效果只是一种幻觉’负面影响是合法的,可衡量的,并且太多,因此不能在这里写!一世’选择自动对焦的生活,百丽(Belle)正在帮助我保持清醒的汽车驶向高速公路。哔哔!!

  • “Does 您r brain tell 您 to drink again to celebrate 您r sobriety?’ Why 是 美女 , it sure does! MY brain would celebrate daylight and the moon and dirt sightings if I let it. I love this blog, it is wonderful to know that I am not alone! 🙂

  • 这是对我们的豪酒晴雨表进行评分的理想清单。直接但不构成威胁,对于需要帮助的人来说是非常合适的指南。

  • 我回答了‘yes’这些问题中的大多数。一世’一个失败的戒烟者。重犯。太多了‘day oner’. I’会停下来。然后开始。然后停下来。悠悠球很老。这次增加了更多的支持。明天50岁。并将清醒地庆祝它。一世’第四天再次但它’比第一天更好。它’非常值得停止。第4天的感觉比宿醉好得多。

  • 我有34天以来第一次考虑喝酒。最近,我摆脱了压力重重的死胡同,开始了一份新的工作冒险,觉得我需要庆祝。不会发生。我现在爱我。不喝酒。

  • 刚刚读过H20 Beth的帖子,内容是关于让4岁的孩子上床睡觉并向她保证,那头大坏狼不是真的。我抚养了三个孩子,他们现在都是大人,喝酒时断断续续。 (那‘high bottom’事情)。我希望我能不喝酒再做一遍。我现在可以说,我从不让酒精影响他们或我的父母,但我知道’一定是不真实的。现在我62岁了’empty nest,’我终于把沃尔夫踢到了f * @!走出屋子。太晚了?那’沃尔夫说话。我有一个一岁的孙子,他只会知道娜娜不会’喝。并时刻准备着和他一起玩…并与他一起在屋子里大声跳舞。并成为第一个早上起床做煎饼的人。跑到公园,成为秋千上的第一个。我现在将永远在场。不回头,不后悔。

  • 第20天,感觉好多了。 1 1/2年前,我已经有150多天的时间,但是Wolfie却很狡猾而狡猾。这次不是’在学习技巧并收集更多工具。

  • 保持清醒最好的部分是我重新发现了笑声!我丈夫和我现在在一起-再一次!不再有一点卑鄙的醉酒事情在我眼前露出幽默。笑起来真好。第11天对我来说。星期五快乐!!!

    • 我曾经以为,因为我已经快4年清醒了,所以狼人已经离开了我的房子,但是没有机会!他永远潜伏,但像其他人一样,我盖起了我的砖房,使狼人很难找到我或进入我的庇护所。赶走混蛋!

  • “Does 您r brain tell 您 to drink again to celebrate 您r sobriety? Mine too. It’s OK, 您 can stay stopped.”喜欢这个,我的大脑最近经常建议这个小小的庆祝活动。多么讽刺,对不对?一世’m coming up on 18 months 清醒 . Do folks smoke a cigarette to celebrate not smoking for 18 months? Booze really fucks with 您r reasoning.

    • 我真的和这个有关。我开始受到牵引,然后在工作周结束时,我的大脑被那响亮的酒itch吓到了我的大脑:“今晚,您可以喝一瓶葡萄酒来奖励自己。它’一直不喝酒的天数,所以你’re fine.” And because it’屈服比战斗容易,我愚蠢地听着the子,然后去买瓶酒。今天早晨,我觉得自己在很多层面上都很卑鄙。回到第一天。顺便说一句:当您复发时,我注意到它越来越难以停止。 h…you’d think I’d到现在已经学会了。喝酒不合逻辑。

  • 我现在很开心。它’有时候很难。但是,男人,我的生命正在绽放’我清醒!加。我仍然得到巧克力..,

    • The problem with the CAGE questionnaire is the mention of early morning drinking. I never did that. and it’s just not everyone’s experience. While i appreciate that the CAGE thing says if 您 have 2 or more, but seeing something like that on a questionnaire fucks with our brains and makes us say: “see, we’re not like THOSE people…”
