Hi all! So, i managed to stop drinking for 10 days and counting, using the SOD plan and also reading some Annie Grace per brookes resources page. I feel great and am so proud of myself. I feel like im managing urges pretty well…the one thought loop i can get stuck on though is ‘everybody drinks’ and ‘will my friends and family (both heavy to moderate drinkinh groups) still like/accept me even though i dont drink anymore’ Brooke makes no wine life look amazing, she was my inspiration bc our stories are similar, and she remains so happy and confident without wine…did she ever have these thoughts im having? I dont desire wine or its effects, but i do desire connection and my friendships, and i suppose the approval of my family. Thank you for your help!
