It's not off topic for a Liquor thread
PM coming your way. Let me know if you didn't get it, the forum was acting weird. I cant tell if it sent...you may have gotten more than one...
Also, just to report, drinking too much causes weight gain! Duh!
Yea, I admitted I stalled, but really had been drinking to excess...just way too much. Like I've said, the bad thing about my alcoholism is it causes no overt social/relationship problems. I dont act a fool, drive drunk, nothing like that. I have the ability to drink so much and until it begins to adversely and obviously affect my day to day health, when I get on a binge (no day-drinking, just every night) it takes something like pain to make me stop.
Well, finally my stomach started bothering me, combined with the scale started bothering me...I stalled at around 187, but after about 4 months of falling off the wagon and drinking a lot of booze, had put on a few pounds. I finally decided to go back to 4 days sober, three nights drinking again, and in those first 4 days dropped the three pounds.
We'll see how it goes forward, but one things for sure, last night (Friday night) it certainly took less booze to achieve the buzz. I need to stay productive outside this time of year when the weather is perfect for working (cutting and splitting wood for the season, etc....home maintenance and repair), so I'm also motivated to not be hungover. That means I'll hopefully keep a handle on it for a while...and maybe lose a few more pounds.
