I just found this web-site and your group after spending hours looking for inspiration and like minded folk. I thought I might as well join in and here I am. I've been a heavy drinker most of my adult life and finally decided to change. I hold down a responsible job which I love and have a loving family who I adore. My children mean the world to me which is why I have taken the desicion to stop. I've not spoken to anyone about my this as my drinking has been a big secret, I can be up and face the day with a hangover no problem. The only person who knows the extent of my drinking is me. I used to take the empties to work and dispose of them out of sight of my wife and kids. I am now 10 days into this and to be honest I'm not finding it hard yet. I'm sleeping ok (with the help of some really boring podcasts). It's still early days for me and I know there will be some dark difficult evenings to come. I really want to be a non drinker.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
