    Thanks! Yeah, that was for the 2011 transformation challenge. Getting serious about fitness has been about the smartest thing I have done.

    Brb buying these. Especially GABA. I've read about how alcohol and GABA production are related, did not know it was produced as a supplement.

    Thanks I will look into purchasing these supplements. I already take an antidepressant/antipsychotic that did work at first as it was quite sedating and I was on top dosage but it has no effect anymore. Hopefully these and getting up at same time and going to bed at same time(which should be easy now) will help, thanks for advice, always much appreciated.

    Thanks buddy, you do the same! I was thinking of lining up some shot glasses with Protein and maybe doing some jello shots with Amino Energy. Probably not gonna happen. But that's what I would call a party today. Maybe do some grappling for the last wing at half time?

    It happens.
    I've always heard that relapse is part of recovery, although it doesnt have to be an option.

    So know you got to ask yourself 3 questions

    1. Where did you go wrong?
    2. What would you do differently?
    3. Where do you go from here?


    But I suggest not beating yourself up over it.
    It will only make you want to drink more.

    lol only 16 days for me, but I have seen some change already. Anxiety levels down, more focused, head less cloudy. Going to the gym everyday minus a sunday is helping, strength is going crazy elevated and same with cardio levels. Only thing which is annoying me is I am coming out with a few spots and notice my skin is getting a bit dry on my face, bought a moisturiser for that though. I suppose this may be toxins coming out of my body as I am eating "healthily" every day. Anyway else notice any changes in there skin after stopping?

Only thing which is annoying me is I am coming out with a few spots and notice my skin is getting a bit dry on my face, bought a moisturiser for that though. I suppose this may be toxins coming out of my body as I am eating "healthily" every day. Anyway else notice any changes in there skin after stopping?
    I started dry heaving one night like a cat coughing up a hair ball and just couldn't get the alcohol out. The next morning, (a few hours later) I went to the sauna and tried to sweat that mess out. Needless to say when I eventually started sweating all that junk my skin started burning, and I could smell the Bacardi and Rum, Vodka, Jack Daniels and case of beer that had been consumed the entire day before. By the end of the sauna session I felt worse that I did the night before. When I left the gym people had thought I was in an accident or a fight because my face was swelled up and my skin was all a mess. My face stayed messed up for a few days and even though I had not drank anymore I could still smell alcohol occasionally. Eventually GALLONS of water cleared all of it up. Had stomach problems and all that before it was said and done, but after those few days and Gallons of water my skin appeared better than it did before this instance.
    Drink a lot of water!

    14 months sober! I can even live with unlocked bottles of hard liquors inside mu house (just for rare guests) , and dont even think about them. I'm now down to only one prescribed drug (only one pill before bed). I'm getting socialized, slowly but I do. I have plans.
    And I was the worst kind of drunkard. So, if I can everybody can. Good luck to everybody and God be with you.

    Dunno how many times I am gonna have to keep thanking you pappabear for all the info, but thanks again lol. That sounds pretty intense. I think my skin is slowly getting better. I drink around 5 litres of water per day along with coffee(in the morning and/or before the gym). I have started using a moisturiser 3 times a day and can see a bit of a difference between Monday and today. It is like little small red blotches and dry skin, but my skin doesn't seem to be dry or as dry since Monday but I am still coming out in the odd pimple on my chin or around my nose area. All's good though. Funny thing is I was feeling great for the first two weeks I came off and quite hyperactive and in this third week my mind seems a bit cloudy and I don't seem to have the same enthusiasm but it comes and goes. Don't know if this is my brain readjusting or whatever. But respect to all you guys.

    To Blacksmith congratulations mate and it's amazing you can do that with the unlocked bottles . Keep going

    Ride it out, roll with the punches, don't worry too much. Most sober women I know refer to AA as a beauty shop. Most guys I know that are sober look much better than they did when they started. It's a big adjustment, physical and mental stresses. I just try to do what I need to do today, and try not to worry too much about the rest.

    It's like a big construction project. It's a huge stadium your building. You lean back and look at the whole thing and get up tight about how it will all get done. Then you remember you can only put one bolt in at a time. When your just working on the one little bolt in front of you, it seems easy, like anyone could do it.

    Good job, that's the only way. Your not alone with a relapse, In my case I finally figured out it was easier for me to get some help, make a call, do the stuff I should be doing, before I drank again, its just easier, and a ton safer than cleaning up after.

    Great philosophy man. That is what I am doing, get on my knees at the end of the night and thank the Lord I got through another day and give me strength for the next day, take it at one day at a time. AaboutI say I am beginning to look better but just this week been feeling a little nervous doing things that the previous two weeks I didn't even think about.

    I bumped into another car in a parking lot yesterday and even though the damage was very minor (none to my car at all) it has brought some repressed emotions and shame out. I haven't been this upset in a long time.

    A well-known speaker started off his seminar holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200 Veterans, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this."

    He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, "Who still wants it...?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" Still the Veterans hands went into the air.

    he said, "My Veteran friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We may feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

    Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

    You are special-Don't EVER forget it." If you do not pass this on, you may never know the lives it touches, the hurting hearts it speaks to, or the hope that it may bring. Count your blessings, not your problems.
