My name is Valerie, I'm 54 years old, and alcohol is my weakness. I rarely drank when I was young and never when I had to work, but now that I'm retired and don't drive a car anymore, I have a difficult time resisting alcohol. I want to lose 40 pounds. I've lost 14 so far in the two months I've been "sparking". I know alcohol is a lot of extra, empty calories which will make it very difficult to lose weight. Last night I really wanted a drink so I went to the "Panic" forum of the message boards. Several people wrote to me and I poured the beer down the sink (which my husband said was "alcohol abuse") and had hot tea. I was proud of myself. Tomorrow night is Friday night "date night" and it will be very difficult to not drink a bottle of wine. Maybe my husband and I could share a small bottle of wine. But usually one leads to another. You know how it is! Maybe we can have a "date" without alcohol. Any suggestions?

Don't be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, let the Holy Spirit fill and control you. Paul in Ephesians 5:18 (NLT)
