: how can i get my cocktail hour(s) under control, i have great willpower, but not to convince me to stop?
: i do not want to go to a group thing, give me other ideas
I have had the same problem. I have not had a drink in almost 4.5 years. (last one May 31st 1995). I am 32 yo presently. I had tried(through "willpower") to stop (or get it under control) for years before coming to the conclusion that it would never work alone! No one WANTS to go do the group thing. It happens to be the best way. I got (somewhat) comfortable with it after doing it for awhile. I don't want to tell you what to do. I don't know what's going on with your drinking habits. I don't know if it's interfering in your family, social, and work life(as was the case with me).Do you want to say anything more about it?
