    Default Gently does it!

    Hi my name is Gillian, posted here on Friday and said I would start phase one today, however can not bring myself to do it yet. Let me explain, I am a recovering alcoholic, nearly two years without alcohol, I know I have replaced alcohol with sugar from things like chocolate, biscuits, and cakes ect. I have managed to lose
    Two and a half stone, but have put half a stone back on. So I thought maybe I will start by allowing myself two choc biscuits a day, continue to wean myself off tea coffee ect. Feel a bit of a failure, but I can not put my sobriety in danger. If anyone can offer any advice I would be grateful.
    Ps I am dyslexic so please excuse any
    spelling mistakes .

    Hi Gillian,

    Welcome to the forums! Great to have you aboard.

    I agree that your sobriety cannot be jeopardised and that you will need to take things slowly.

    I think that if you plan your menus really carefully and stick to them; it will be possible - difficult - but possible!

    Keep posting for support and don't worry about spelling

    Oh! Stop feeling like a failure right now! A failure wouldn't posting and asking for advice or support! Taking those first steps, as you know, are so important.

    Thinking about it, you could probably use a lot of the knowledge gained from giving up alcohol to aid in your giving up of sugar - both are toxic and both are very addictive! Sugar possibly more so due to the lack of stigmatisation by society!

    You can do it - if you can give up alcohol; you can do this and we're here for you, willing you to succeed!

    Hi Gillian, well done for joining and posting, And for being so honest! +1 for everyone mat said!

    Is it worth upgrading for a short while so you can get some support and advice directly off Zoe? I think she would be able to help you here - by making it as painless as possible but still being effective. She usually has amazing advice, and often comes up with things that others wouldn't necessarily think of - and I agree in your case your sobriety is the most important factor here.

    Good luck and keep posting!
    Xx

    @ Gillian... If you have already been successful in giving up alcohol.then that says a lot about your strength of character and ability to focus. Take things slowly,and do what is necessary so that you do not jeopardise your sobriety.
    If you like chocolate-maybe try introducing darker varieties until you are comfortable with at least 85% or even 90-100%. Then you can have a bit without doing too much damage-and there will be no wheat as in biscuits. It's just a thought-but find what works for you.
    Good luck...and the same to Soontobeslim...x

    I don't think there can be anything as effective as eating real food!

    Many of us have last nights leftovers-eat cold chicken or fish with mayo...or reheat any thing else - like curries or stews if you have access to a microwave. Also-tinned fish is great-and very fast!
