For three years I've been fooling with quitting drinking. I'm sick of it and am so ready to stop. Go figure my favorite thing to drink was NZ Sav Blanc. I'm 56 and I really want to be healthy. I've read a bunch of books, listened to a lot of podcasts and always the same when I picked back up there was no moderating ever. Bottle of wine right off the back. Often times two bottles. The waste of money is really insane. I used Eldon Taylor's NLP (Neurolinguistic programming) or as he calls it InnerTalk. I smoked disgusting cigs for 33 years. The NLP worked for me and my neighbor for cold turkey on the cigs. We both stopped four years ago after listening to the subliminal messages only a few times. I sat on the stop substance abuse NLP CD for drinking for over four years without listening to it. I feel that I'm finally excited and ready to happily dump the booze. I am using all the techniques I've learned over the three years and I'm just doing it for keeps this time.
7/24/19 Makes two weeks sober. I feel like I own it/ want it/ am happy about it, so this time it is going to stick. Good sleep, saving heaps of money, keeping house clean, banging out work tasks, what’s not to love? For my next trick I have got to start sweating. The gym clothes have been out for 2 days. There is a big gym in my complex. No excuses. Today is the day I’m going to sweat. After work. IWNDWYT
Lol I’m feeling like this too. I’m itching to go for a run but putting more than two power poles together will floor me. And it’s winter! I don’t want to slip. I’m doing an awesome job on excuses. 🙂 If you do it, I’ll do it.
