    Cutting Down Alcohol Thread 30th Jan 18 at 2:46 PM
    Hi Guys,

    Sadly we lost our thread and I don't personally keep a private record of others AFDs so all data on the old thread is gone.

    I've decided I'm going to bow out for a while as I'm actually pretty busy here in RL. And my life is about to get really hectic as I'm moving home....Also it will be hard to have challenges if data is getting lost. Sorry guys.

    ....It's been great...maybe I'll be back in a few months...

    Ta Ta For Now.

    What do we do when we fall? We get up, dust ourselves off and start walking in the right direction again. Perhaps when we fall, it is easy to forget there are people along the way who help us stand and walk with us as we get back on track.

    10/31 please, Baileys.

    11/28 for me today please.


    Yesterday, 6 weeks to the day alcohol free, I had a pint. 1 pint. I can't say I didn't enjoy it as it was nice to have a wee drink along with my Mum while out for a Mothers's day meal, but I finally fell off the wagon!


    Had forgotten how bad T's lager tasted though, not the best!


    I did have only 1 pint, I didn't go home and have any more or make any pit-stops on the way home as would have been the norm last year. And I'm back on a mission this week as the weekend wasn't particular good for the diet either. Had a take away on Friday and a 3 course meal yesterday.


    Still on course for this month's target.


    Hope you all had a great weekend
    You can have results or excuses, but not both - Wannabe debt free by Dec 2022
    June's targets - Be 15st by end of month, 19/30 AFDs

    And Fatrab, you stopped after one pint - that's quite something. We all need a bit of a blowout occasionally, and I'm of the belief that it's better if the indulgence is food rather than alcohol. After all, who gets aggressive after fish and chips?

    12/31 please, Baileys.
