    Hello Casey. I don’t know the answer to that question for you as an individual but I can tell you I have seen members of MM who have been abstinent for years, one of them over 20 years, who have managed to successfully moderate. Then, I have seen others who tried for a period of time then decided to go back to abstinence. I have been a member of MM for 6 years and I don’t know of any members who have reverted to long term drinking abuse, the ones I am aware of that had trouble sustaining moderation chose to go back to abstinence fairly rapidly. That is just my experience and I am a member who has abstained for over 5 years so I follow these types of members closely. I can say without a doubt that it is much wiser, if you are going to try drinking again, to do it with the support of a moderation group instead of on your own. This public site does not get the traffic and interaction that MM’s private support sites do so I would like to invite you to visit the MM main website,, where you will find links to the forum message board and the listserv-an email service for active members. There are also live meetings in some cities, telephone meetings, and an online chat room with regularly scheduled chats. Hope I see you there.
