    Congratulations on ending 2014 on a great note! Currently, I am about where you were a year ago. I have been following your blog religiously for the past year. I am currently struggling with getting over that final hump of quitting all together. Any words of advice or wisdom would be hugely appreciated 🙂

      Thanks for commenting here Jayne.

      It’s so hard to quit, there are no two ways about it. BUT, the good thing you see in the sober sphere time after time is that if people want to do it and are committed to doing it, then usually they do. Lord, I wrote posts here for almost 2 years where I was going to stop and then didn’t.

      For me, a couple of things changed the final time I quit. I realised that will power was getting me nowhere. But I didn’t understand what else I could use. I also knew that the community of the blogging world wasn’t enough either. It was wonderful, but not enough.

      I’ve blogged about this before, so apologies if it feels like I’m banging the same old drum, but the thing that changed my path forever was going to AA.

      I DID NOT WANT to go to AA. I didn’t believe I’d fit in. I didn;t believe it would work. I thought it was the last place I should be. And yet when I sat in that room for the first time I knew I was home.

      I was so resistant to going for so many reasons, but when I forgot my preconceptions and ego and did it, listening to what they said and following it, it worked.

      That may not be the route for you, but whatever route you take, I’d recommend handing your drinking over to the universe, asking for inner strength and somehow it helps.

      Sorry for rambling!
