    lmao. It's just a saying. Maybe not where you're from, I guess. Suck to be you (see, that's judgemental).

    All it means is "So be it.. go on.. take care.. whatever.."

    Counts ! Its not about if you show strong will or win against yourself. Its about the amount of days you stay sober, which let your body recuperate. That results in you becoming automatically more energetic and less receptive to mood swings because of a stronger inner self.

    One advice: be careful of old habits, try to get rid of them. I used to drink alone at home thats nearly impossible to get rid off. I was by that in one of the final stages of alcoholism, cause I drunk every night. If you have that problem as well, try if you can get substitutes to drink, like beer without alcohol or champagne for childs. That sounds funny but it does help.

    if you aint there yet and god beware you never get there, try to avoid social gatherings which involve heavy drinking. You dont need them anyways and you'll feel after some months that you actually never needed them. the extra time and energy you'll have spare, if you dont miss several days every week (either drunk or having a hangover) will come as a total surprise to you.

    I am keeping thumbs crossed. And if you manage to get there, nothing will stand in your way to at least once a month have a beer or get drunk. Its just frequency and habits which are ur enemies, but if you dont beat them you'll come to the point where you can never drink again, because it would result in you becoming immediantly alcoholic again. If you keep away from that point, there is nothing in your way if you practice controlled drinking.

    I haven't drank for over a month, except once socially and the occasional glass of wine with dinner when everyone else was drinking wine. I really haven't been in the mood to get drunk the last 3 weeks.

    What is the point of "quit drinking"? Do you excpect to die at 86 instead of 84 or something?

    Take this seriously.
    Jenaphor, is there any more research on this, that you are aware of? I've just had a pretty big "lightbulb" moment. I won't detract from prp's thread though.
