Welcome Schmoo!


I am glad you found us. Divine intervention indeed!

You mentioned alcohol is an escape for you. How else can you escape without the use of alcohol (or substances)?

Hi there! I'm an almost 50 yr old woman who has finally decided to get her drinking under control. I'm what you call a binge drinker I guess from past research and I long to activate my "I've had enough" switch that I'm not sure was ever turned on. Stress is my biggest trigger and the silly thing is I know drinking makes it all worse, but it gives me a few hours off turning it off...it's an escape, but as of late it's becoming a problem. I'm becoming defensive and angry. This isn't who I really am. I spoke to my doctor today and she suggested PARRC...as I browsed the site a link brought me here...I don't believe in coincidence but divine intervention...so here I am...not sure where to start but ready to take the first steps. 🙏🏻❤️

Welcome Coach!


Thanks for telling us a bit about you. That's great you were able to quit for a month. How were you able to do it then? What worked for you?

I am a 67 year old male that needs to cut back on drinking for health reasons.  Most prevalent are high blood sugar and liver enzymes that can get out of whack.  I quit completely for a month last year and my sugar levels and liver enzymes perfect.  I never consume more than 4-5 drinks in any period but have trouble once I have a drink or two then I want more.  Just wanted to say hello and let people know what I am about.
