Moderate Drinking vs. Abstinence – Is it Time to Rethink Your “Why?”

If you've been around the MODER8 program for a while, then you've probably read some of my material on abstinence versus moderation. If not, then here are a few thoughts to get you doing a little self-evaluation and think about what may or may not be motivating you to pick one camp or the other. And if you have read this before, then maybe it's time to think about it again and see where you are with your patterns or any denial. So, having said that, you have to determine WHY you want to drink moderately vs. quitting altogether.  Here are [...]

Reality Check – How well are you REALLY doing?

Let me ask you something. When you picture the ideal image of YOU, living your ideal life, how often do you picture yourself drinking? How close to that amount are you drinking now? If you are drinking a whole lot more than you picture the ideal you drinking, then what are you waiting for? Why not go ahead and make the commitment to drinking that much (or little) now? I recently had that same reality check myself. Sure, I drink moderately and have for many years, but I was still drinking more often than I pictured myself drinking “in the [...]

Moderate Drinking as a Form of Self-Love

Do you ever ask yourself why you want to be able to drink moderately instead of abstain altogether? Sure, at first we’d probably say that it’s because we enjoy wine with food, or an ice-cold beer on the back deck, or perhaps being able to drink our favorite mixed drink with friends. But at a deeper level, we really want to be able to drink moderately because we want to be “normal” – we don’t want to be “weak” or have anything “wrong” with us.  Unfortunately, thinking that there might be something wrong with us is what has led to [...]

No Bull Sheet Excuses – Stick to your plan!

Okay, it’s January 5 and you've made it through the holidays. Hopefully you have thought about your objectives for 2015, and you’re ready to start implementing your new plans and “resolutions.” You have planned out your goals (weight loss, professional, financial, relationship, etc.), you've planned HOW you’ll accomplish those goals including how you’ll deal with current and potential obstacles. And in your plan, you should have considered how you’ll handle your INNER obstacles as well. You know those annoying little bad habits and struggles with impulse control? You should be prepared for when your inner voice starts coming up with excuses [...]

Moderate Drinking vs. Abstinence – Which on is Right for You?

I’m going to be really honest – if you’ve been drinking very heavily for years or decades, tend to binge to black-outs or started drinking at an early age – abstinence is easier.  However, if you REALLY want to be able to drink moderately or socially, then it is a potential option for you if it is something that you are willing to commit to and truly work at – because learning to moderate your drinking takes a lot of work.  But I did it – and you can too. So, having said that, you have to determine WHY you [...]

The Importance of Eating (Correctly) When You Drink

How many times have you drunk on an empty stomach because you either wanted to cut calories or else get a faster, more intense buzz?  How did that turn out for you? I would venture to say that some of your worst drinking episodes and blackouts occurred when you were drinking on an empty stomach.  And ultimately, you probably didn’t enjoy the “buzz” because you got wasted too fast, and the reduction of calories did nothing for you because when your body is metabolizing alcohol, fat metabolism is inhibited. Eating when you drink helps you moderate your drinking better.  When [...]

How is Your Drinking Plan Working for You? – It May Be Time to Modify or Create a New One

Do you have a drinking plan? Creating a drinking plan helps to give you guidelines and structure to follow, plus it provides you with personal accountability. If you already have one, how’s it going? You may find that you need to tweak it a bit and break it into smaller, more attainable goals. Taking baby steps in order to make a change can help to improve your success rate. Trying to make too big of a change too quickly can set you up for failure, and ultimately a negative spiral from reduced confidence and self-esteem. It you don’t have a [...]
