I am trying to support and encourage a very good friend who is trying to quit drinking. I have had issues with food in the past and have about 17 years of great eating habits under my belt. I try to compare making good food choices to making good drinking choices. I know for me, I do much better when I make a big effort to eat good healthy food so I'm not tempted to eat junk (especially important around the holidays). I tell him I think he will find it easier not to drink if he has filled himself physically, emotionally and spirtually and is not 'starving' in any of these areas, just as I feel these help me with food. I am also extremely vigilant and almost never allow myself to 'cheat'. Does anyone think that these are similar issues? How and why? Also, how much do you think thinking positively plays into being successful at stopping drinking?
