It's not in my nature to post personal stuff on these boards - I tend to stick to the GN'R stuff, but I have been sober for one week today and I thought I'd share.

Drank nearly everyday for 24 years straight and finally had enough last weekend.

First week was a breeze - almost too easy.

Today (Day 7) I am in a blind rage - but still no urge to drink.

Thanks for reading. 9

Keep it up. And fuck it. I think I'll join you. As of today. Cos I haven't had a drink yet.

Good luck man. Alcoholism runs in my family. My dad drinks every day. He's pushing 70, I'm 37. I've never seen a day go by he didn't have his Jack and Coke or a glass of wine.

My brother drank for close to 20 years, then he had to quit or he'd have been locked up.

I drank hardcore for about 7 years before I realized what was happening. I cut down to weekend wine with my wife, but we both decided to stop that in February.

It'll help you in so many ways to quit. Hope you do well.

I don't drink everyday, but I do binge drink on weekends with mates.

I've thought about giving up recently, more because of wasted days and hangovers (which suck), along with wasted money on booze. But I really dig drinking beer socially with friends, so it's hard to go cold turkey.

Still no urge to booze but I punched myself in the face a couple of times today and have 2 black eyes now.

I've only been addicted to coffee in my life and even that wasn't a serious addiction. I drank 4 or 5 cups a day (I started with one, obviously, but 'the little got more and more'), but in a few years my blood pressure was high, so I decided to give up. The first two weeks weren't easy, but weren't too hard either. But that was nothing of an addiction, compared to others'.
