When I first came into recovery, whilst attending an Alcohol Treatment Centre. There was a discussion held by a group of people attending the centre. The discussion was on what would you have a life long supply of if you were stranded on a desert island. The majority agreed that a life long supply of Alcohol is what they would choose. Euphoric recall was etched on the faces; it was like they were dreaming of paradise. I tried to explain that if it was reality, that they would become mentally unstable, dehydrated and die a slow and painful death. What I am trying to say is that, there is more to being sober than putting down the drink. You have to put the drink down in you mind also. Then work on the issues or problems that trigger the urge to drink. Then there's putting the mind back into order, which is a very slow process. Eventually everything will fall into place, through sobriety and understanding.

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...
