Glad to see there’s an alternative to abstinence

November 9, 2017

Hi my blog is

I thought I was the only one trying a path of moderation rather than abstinence.  The abstainers can be very black and white in their thinking and assume it’s only a matter of time before a moderator realises it can’t be done and becomes an abstainer.

That doesn’t help me.  I want to cut back and enjoy wine and beer in a way that my friends do; ie in moderation.  My blog is my attempt to do that and look at why my drinking got out of hand in the first place. I know change is difficult but with support I hope I can do it.

    Welcome to MM, Jim! I am a blogger, too, and I am always happy to see a moderation blog enter the sober blogosphere, they are few and far between. I’m sure our members would love to hear about it. If you haven’t already joined one of our private MM communities, I suggest you check out the MM Forum or MMListserv, their links are at the top of the sidebar underneath “Looking For Support?”
