    Default I promise to quit drinking for month

    after I finish the bottle of whiskey I have. except when i'm with people and i'm not with people that often and even than 2 drinks max. I'm putting this here so you can tar and feather me when i fail.
    In no likes experiment.

    I don't drink nowadays and it's a little weird socially, but not all that bad.

    yeah I don't want to quit, but after spending 3 days drunk and than later drinking half a fifth of whiskey in 2 hours it's probably time for a break

    I'm sorry to say, but if you're finishing off whiskey bottles alone, you're going to have to do better than this. I won't tar and feather later. I'll just tell you you're doomed to failure now.

    not necessarily... a couple of years ago I went to quit drinking for a few months because I had a problem. After a year I tried drinking again and still had no control over myself so I decided that I can't drink in moderation- it's either all in or nothing. The important thing is to recognize that it's a problem in the first place- denial is much more common. I don't think that I would have addressed my own problem except that I was legally mandated to do so

    so good for you ms chickens... I'll give up smoking cigars in solidarity

    My point is that she doesn't sound very serious atm. It sounds like heavy drinking, but casual about fixing/recognizing the problem.

    I'd say good for her too, if she can pull it off.

    could be a defense mechanism... quitting something is hard and it's easier on the ego if you leave something that sounds like an escape clause... if you fail you can always claim that you weren't that serious

    BTW I've quit drugs (barely was a drinker to begin with), but I have the same prob with my smoking habit. So I hope I don't come off lame here. I know I'm doomed to failure (now), because I'm not treating it as seriously.

    I quit drinking, cigarettes and coffee all within a few years of one another and I KNOW that it's tough- I played it off that it wasn't that serious when I went to quit drinking... I was a notorious party girl and it was kind of embarrassing really... it didn't feel so bad if I played it off as a minor, temporary thing
