All I can say is WOW. Just wow!

I know after reading this forum that's it's probably the honeymoon phase, but this is absolutely incredible.
I've had no more than 2 drinks a day and no longer obsess all day long about a drink.
I'm working out again. Confidence is coming back. I feel like a million bucks!
If I had done this with mere abstinence and AA I'd be a total wreck and white knuckling waiting for the other shoe to drop. (as it usually did)

Welcome Hopeful and yes this is probably the honeymoon phase so please do not be upset if your drinking goes back up. The good thing is that it rarely goes back up to pre Nal levels!

Hugs, Maggie

That's great, Hopeful! Like Maggie said, though, don't be alarmed or disappointed if your levels come back up. It's all part of the extinction process! Keep on keeping on!

Hi Hopeful

Sounds like a great start. Are you tracking your drinks? Are you following the golden rule? Side effects? Post any problems and/or questions and everyone will pitch in to help. The good news is we do not have to convince you that it works!
