Moderation is not an option for me because I don't have the first clue why people bother to moderate therefore it doesn't exist for me so I will moderate myself into getting drunk for god knows how long.

The risks WAY outweigh anything that happens (cause it won't be good...).

Because moderating means I have to keep thinking about alcohol and how much I want more. Boring and a waste of time...

Moderation is not an option for me because I do not just want one, I want all of them.

Moderation is not an option for me, because, without exception, every single person I know of who quit drinking for a decent period of time and then went back to try and moderate their alcohol use, REGRETS IT.

Moderation is not an option for me because it is a slippery slope... Or, as they taught me as a young Catholic girl, it is: "the near occasion of sin." Lol

The only thing moderate about moderation is how long it lasts!

Moderation is not an option for me, because it's just too much hassle. Buying alcohol, looking for drugs, losing jobs, losing my self-respect, losing the respect of my family.

I'm just not willing to pay the price for being moderate. I've never been moderate in the past, and I doubt I ever will be in the future. It always ends up the same.

Moderation is not an option for me because I can't stop at one.

Moderation is not an option for me because: just like one can't be a little bit pregnant, I can't be a little bit sober.

Moderation is not an option for me because: finishing off a bottle of vodka 7 hours after thinking I'll just have one has proven to me time and time again that - moderation is not an option for me!

Moderation is not an option for me because:
it is too risky
I have never drunk moderately, why would I think I magically could now?

Moderation is not an option for me because if I do have "just one or two" one day, I am sure to be on a binge within a week.

Moderation is not an option for me because I am all or nothing when it comes to booze and drugs. Mostly "all" though. I'll trick myself into thinking I can stop at just one or two, but then I say "ahh hell I might as well get good and drunk now that I've started, NEXT time I'll do better." But it's ALWAYS NEXT time I'll do better.

Moderation is not an option for me because I don't want anything to endanger the new life that is unfolding before me.

Moderation is not an option for me because, like so many other people, I can't stop at just 1.
