Hey 09.1,

I'm so happy for you. It's great that your cravings are totally gone, but at the same time I feel like you're declaring yourself cured a little prematurely. I know that only you can know yourself and you have the right to declare yourself cured whenever you want so I apologize if it sounds like I'm trying to rain on your parade. I just know that in the past, there were times where I thought that I had control over my alcoholism only for it to rear its ugly little head again sometime later. It sounds like TSM is definitely working for you and I sincerely hope you continue to have no cravings for the rest of your life. And I agree with the others, your progress definitely gives me so much hope for myself.


Well said. My thoughts exactly. While I am very happy for 09.1's success and confidence in his cure and don't want to as you say rain on someone's parade, I think I will be very cautious in making any such declaration. I'll want to feel I'm cure subjectively and then have a period of many months of sustained success with supporting (objective?) data (i.e., consistently low weekly unit numbers) before I will truly feel confident that I'm cured. This is not really meant as criticism, but rather an observation that I would be skeptical of my own cure until it was sustained for a period of months, not weeks.

Having said that, congrats to 09. Your progress gives us all hope.

I thought it was time to update the list that ~Q~ started by adding Merlot and myself (Saint Vincent). edit: and now several others after searching the word "cured".

Good job with the update. This list is definitely not inclusive. Ben and Avishai have also declared themselves cured, among others. Avishai only posted once under The Boxing Ring.

I just searched "I'm cured" on this board and looked back through January 1, 2011. Tambo came up, without officially declaring it; Noboozeneeded came up and so did 09.1, although some argued it was premature. Several others stated they had regained control but didn't want to use the word "cure".

I'm wondering if we shouldn't rename this thread: Conclusive Proof TSM WORKS, THE OFFICIAL CURED LIST AND LIST OF THOSE WHO REGAINED CONTROL.

That would add quite a few names.

Hi All - I agree with changing the name to Cured and/or Regained Control. Nick, are you still our moderator? Also, we get a lot of encouragement from you these days, but not much update on you. How is your "regained control" doing. Do you still drink or are you all AF?

Hey HG. Did anyone else ever officially become moderator in my absence? I don't even know. I am doing great, thanks. Last summer I considered myself "cured" and foolishly stopped taking the pill for about a month over the Holidays. I missed the "warm glow" and figured I was cured, so what's the harm. Before the month was up I was back up to 30-40 units in a week or so. I also had a scary, high blood pressure episode after that. But since the Holidays I'm back on TSM and immediately regained control. I typically have 5-6 AF days and then drink moderately on one of the weekend nights. On occasion -- maybe once a month -- I'll pound down twelve beers or so over many hours for old time's sake. ;) But outside of when I stopped taking the pill, I haven't had a hangover or blackout. I couldn't be happier with where I'm at. Thanks for asking.

Hi Nick - Thanks for sharing that update. That is good news. I reread your progress thread a lot for encouragement as I am now at the end of week 14 and I just had another spike in units. I know it is too early to get discouraged, although it is hard not to, but folks like you keep me plugging along.

Hi All - How about Kiwichick - She hasn't been on for awhile but her last post said she considered herself 90% cured. That sounds like "regained control" to me. Should we add her to the list? Does anyone keep in touch with her and know how she is doing?
