Sparkling - I totally understand about the cravings and go AF during lent to get my body back on track. I'm excited that my brain has (I hope) taken over this year and I can imbibe healthily before the need to abstain.
Here's to your success! emoticon

PS - love your focus on awareness

I also believe in moderation - but for now I need to be more effective. I need to get out of the craving the body exerts on me - and become the one in control. So - off for now, and when I have reached my goal, then back to moderation and see if I can hold the weight there. If not - then off again

Thanks for the info!
FYI, many, if not most, of the people on this team are moderating, not abstaining.
Jump in on any thread.

My goal is moderate drinking as opposed to alcohol free.

While Dr. Morten Gronbaek found exercise and drinking alcohol each had an independent beneficial effect on the heart by increasing good cholesterol (HDL) and removing fatty deposits created by bad cholesterol (LDL) in blood vessel walls; the study determined that drinking and exercise combine to have a greater health benefit than either alone.

The Danish researchers found:

---people who never drink and don't exercise had the highest risk of heart disease.
---people who never drink but do exercise had a 30% lower risk.
---people who drink moderately but never exercise had a 30% lower risk.
---people who drink moderately and exercise had a 50% lower risk.

Dr. Gronbaek says the optimal level for women at risk of coronary heart disease is one drink per day and one to two drinks per day for men.

So, I plan to post moderate emoticon or not emoticon and invite others to join me.
