just remember that you are doing this for your health to try and keep from feeling deprived. take it one day at a time, and a big thing that helps me when I am trying to quit anything is remembering nothing is forever. Try and exercise or free write your feelings and emotions

the best day of your life is the one you decide your life is your own. No apologizes or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on or blame. The gift is yours, you alone are responsible for the quality of it.

Hi there! I've struggled with drinking on and off. Although I don't consider myself an alcoholic anymore (not sure I ever was) I found AA to be a GREAT resource in the first 6 months of being sober.

I now take 6 months off from drinking every year. I no longer binge drink. I am happier, healthier and like myself more. AA is a great way to start changing your life.

I suggest looking for an all women's group. Sometimes it is nice to just talk to other women. One day at a time. Good luck!

In January of 2008 I was 226 pounds and a size 20.
Never again!

Go see a psychiatrist to make sure there are no other factors. I have bipolar, so meds really helped my situation. Go to AA today. Just sit and listen at first. This is so important. Stay positive and good luck.
