Saying Hi

I've been in and out of here for a while. I've been reading alot and it is very helpful.

I started partying as a teen, got married young, and except for pregnancies, kept on drinking. I'm 44 now. Tried all different stuff when I was younger, but the drinking kind of stayed for the long haul.

I'm a beer drinker, about 6 a night, every night. Time to stop. It is no longer fun. And its making me fat.. I'm on day 10 sober.

Thank you for reading this and for all of you being so inspirational!
Hoping to get more involved.

ten days is rocking, sagittarius. You have given drinking plenty of time. Sober can be a real change of pace -- a new thing. I can't get enough of it.

Hey Sagittarius, welcome!

I'm a Sagittarius too, and googled this just for fun:

Independence is Sagittarius' principle, they crave adventure and excitement and welcome change with open arms. Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher and the explorer, they will go as far as road will go and explore every corner thoroughly in their ever eternal search for wisdom. Freedom is so important to Sagittarius that they will actually make decisions based on the amount of freedom that is given by the choice they have made, as a result, sometimes a good opportunity is turned down because of it's high commitment need, but this is their choice so it is a good choice for them.

Welcome!

I was a beer drinker as well.. I'm hoping I get some weight loss out of this too- 6 to 10 beers a night is a lot of calories, so it may just be an added bonus for us
