    Where the heck do you live? That sounds CRAZY. You should be so proud of being off the beers! It is awesome that you are experiencing such awesome early success.

    Here's what helps me:
    meditation & breathing
    staying away from bars & boozy friends
    substitution (eating fruit or nuts instead)
    time

    Like I said I am not all the way fixed but I am WAY better. I haven't been naughty in months.

        Ah, a self confessed troll

        Good move getting off the booze too. My drinking was very much of the self destructive kind, I lived & worked with guys who wouldn't get out of bed until they'd cracked open their first beer (even for the 7am shift start!), so I never really saw myself as having a drink problem. I just drank, a lot, got drunk & passed out, no problem

        It took a big wake up call and a change of life for me to knock it on the head. Now I still drink occasionally, but only 1 or 3 and haven't been drunk for a few years. I've got a good friend who's just started AA last week and she says that it's good for her, not sure I would have gone even if I'd known about it back then.

        One of my squadron tried killing himself one night when he was drunk and got sent on a basket weaving course for a month to get his drinking under control. At the end of the month they had a group piss up to celebrate... I shit you not. But that's the army for you

            Yep, though it's been years since I read it. Have been meaning to add it to my collection, along with Huxley's A Brave New World.
            It may just be the way I'm reading you but your writing sounds like you're from the UK (if that makes any sense at all ), apart from the refs to swat and cops..

              Hah, thanks Misabi, no I'm from smack dab in the middle of the United States I am considering teaching overseas next year, although I'm looking at the Czech Republic.
              Finally fell asleep at 4am and woke up around 10am, sooo, progress, but I need to be able to go to sleep around 9:30 pm, in order to catch enough zzzs for work.
              Anyhow, my low reward food menu for the week is pretty basic. It will consist of two soups seasoned only with salted broth. A chicken and celery with spinach and onions soup and a beef with collards soup. Any additional food will be plain, hard-boiled eggs or pickles. A spoonful of coconut oil will be consumed separately from the meals.I can eat unlimited quantities of these things twice a day, but the theory is that if they are bland, I really won't want to eat very much. I'm only doing it for a week, so we'll see how it goes.

                Here are some starting photos of me from today with these stats:
                Waist: 28.5in (started at 30in)
                Hips: 35.5in (no change)
                Weight: 120 (started at 124lbs)
                As you can see, I have a fat tummy problem

                  Yesterday was my first day of low food reward diet (eat bland so I don't end up eating as much).
                  I ate a hard-boiled egg,one packet of water-packed plain tuna, a tablespoon of unrefined virgin coconut oil (that was sort of unpleasant), and had some of my soup, inspired by Spughy's stew of blandness. Mine had:
                  Shredded chicken thighs (skin removed after cooking)
                  Huge amount of spinach
                  Lots of collard greens
                  Small can of beets
                  Small amount of salt.
                  Yeah it tasted vaguely of dirt, but not so horrible I couldn't eat it. Had one bowl for dinner. If this was my normal homemade chicken soup with herbs and spices, I would have had two bowls, for sure.
                  I divided the soup for the week into containers. I'm trying to come up with other bland soup food ideas. Any suggestions?

                    Can't say much on the topic of bland food, except that chicken broth with nothing added can be VERY bland. That'd probably make a great base for a lot of soups.

                      Yep, I completely fell off the the wagon into a few drinks tonight. I do feel like I have more control. However, I am listening to Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music, so completely forgivable! My husband and I are having an intense port-punk conversation- we agree that something needs to be done about the current state of music. Look for our album in 2013 (I'm a singer and he's a guitarist/bassist/drummer/keyboardist/trombonist). I'm tired of shelving books. We're going to do the rock star thing for a while, like my dad did.

                        And I am, currently being taught how to play "Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen, on guitar, by my husband. We have been together for eight years, and, God, I am a lucky woman!

                          I got Rocksmith for my husband for xmas so we'll see how that goes. I myself played bass in a punk band and learned some Irish fiddle this summer. With you on the trombone we should start a ska band!

                          Have you read the Mood Cure (there's a website also), that's all about supplementation to get your neurotransmitters back online. There IS a physiological basis to cravings, so some of the info therein might help. This from a Diet Cola addict with zero self-control.

                              I wish I could've been born a British male in the 60s, then I would've grown up to become a lanky, gay, pop star.

                                I'm pretending that my indulgence in alcohol was a planned "carb re-feed." My pants tell me that I'm skinnier, but that's probably because I'm dehydrated....

                                Made a new bland soup last night: ground beef, beef broth (way watered down) and spinach. As I was eating it, I felt that the soup, although unseasoned, was way too tasty. I only wanted one bowl, so it must not have been TOO tasty.
