And good luck to you too! It sounds like you have a double motivation to fast--your health and your dependency.
I'm curious to know this--after your previous fasts, what was it like to go back to drinking? Did you start back at the same level you were at before the fast or did it take a while to get back there? How did it taste?
Right now, I'm actually afraid to drink again. I have no confidence that I would actually have any more control over my drinking than I did previously. For this reason, I want to just avoid drinking all together until I have really dealt with the emotional reasons for overindulging. I'm thinking now that if I can successfully learn to deal with the ups and downs of life without alcohol then perhaps, at some time in the future, it will cease to be a drug for me . . .
Report back with your progress? It's great to know that I'm not alone in this.
