Hello everyone- I haven't been here in quite some time, because for some reason my account stopped being able to post awhile ago.
Well I just relogged in and it worked, so whatever.
Anyway, I'm cured! It took just over a year, and I almost gave up a few times because it didn't seem to be working. I'm so glad I kept plugging along. 5 weeks ago I suddenly stopped thinking about alcohol altogether. I've probably had 4 drinks total since then.
I can't believe how much time I had been wasting on drinking. I've been able to accomplish so much in the evenings, I feel great in the morning, and I'm looking forward to a positive future.
I'm so thankful for TSM. It feels like a miracle.
Happy Mother's Day to me! :D

I realize that popping back up after all this time might make me seem like a troll, but I've been active in a small FB group this whole time. The other Inmates can vouch that this is all true ;)

YES! I will vouch for her! GO you Gdmcf! I am so happy for you - and like you, it also took me nearly a year! It is worth waiting for though isn't it? SO happy for you!!

Hugs, Maggie x

Congratulations on getting free! Did you simply not get much of a reduction, or did your drinking drop then plateau for a number of months?

And a very Happy Mother's Day to you!

So happy for you Gdmcf and congrats on being able to say you are on the Cured list finally. Sounds like it takes a year for a few people that have been on TSM and hopefully I will be right behind you and be able to declare this too soon. I went backwards as I did not have Nal for 2 months while I was in Mexico and drank without it but am back in the Golden Rule saddle again.
Again so happy you have your life back!

Good for you Gdmcf!! It does seem like there are a substantial people who are taking a year and sometimes more, myself included. But I am so very happy for your Cure and success!! Way to go.

so glad that you stuck with it.

xoxo Newlife

Wonderful news! Especially good to hear for those who struggle with long term success and failures with TSM.
