I've quit multiple times before for short breaks - only once I thought mabye I'd do it forever, but after a month I decided I could manage it instead, and I did for a while. But then there's always those slip ups when I'm not in control at all, and I make very poor choices when I drink too much (like thinking I can drive a car) :( I've had more than one scary incident with that and recently I had a pretty bad one. I'm greatful because even though it was bad, it could have been ALOT worse - I'm realizing that I need to take it as my final wake up call. Next time won't be so lucky. So this is day one and even though I've been so rattled and shaken up over this that I'm feeling determined to stick to it because managing it doesn't work for me, I can't trust myself when I drink - even if sometimes I do just fine, I never keep it up, so I think it's a really good idea for me to check in w/a support group & keep sharing my talley of days sober to help keep me accountable. All of my closest friends & family know what just happened & I let them all know that I'm quitting. They are all really supportive, So I have that too. Fingers crossed my mind stays in the right place to make this happen.
I've been inactive for a couple of years now, for no reason in particular. Anyway, I want to get active again and start eating healthier. I do okay in the beginning, but then I lose motivation and have trouble holding myself accountable to stick with a commitment. Any suggestions?
