Well I'm giving up alcohol as of Today ,I finally have a motivating factor that I can really beleive in , Does Anyone have any experience or advice? I'm worried my S.I. will go through the roof. It did the last time I gave it up .

*hugs mark* is there anything else to substitute drinking and SI? I know people who started to eat tons of sunflower seeds when they stopped smoking.

thanks for the hugs and squishes.

I PMed you Mark, it certainly isn't a walk in the park but is a big step you should be proud of and with the right support you'll get there. I'm still getting there, but you know its going to take time so just hang in there and try to feel good about the fact that you're doing it. *gives standing ovation* it is awesome 'K?

*tosses some confetti* HipHipHooray! My SIL isn't living with me anymore! And I'm fully moved.

*rubs lotion on eczema breakout* it may not help but its better than scratching at it.

How is everyone else doing today?

P.S. I have no stupendous advice, Mark, but I know you can do it! Maybe substitute something for drinking? Like pamper yourself, or do something you like? Call or Skype someone?

So... apparently, I have to give my uni rights to talk to my counselor so she can prove I need to be considered independent for financial aid.
In between my recent slip up and this... I am not happy.

Anyway.... Love you guys :)
