  1. I did the “keeping a journal” thing for a while, as a serious moderation attempt. And it did work for a bit – the act of writing it all down makes you cut down. But then, after a few weeks, my journal got shoved to the back of a drawer and forgotten, and my drinking drifted back to earlier habits in no time. FWIW, I believe if you’ve been drinking in that high risk category for years and years, then keeping a journal for a few weeks is not going to change your habits permanently. That’s not how addiction works, and until we recognise the problem for what it is – namely an addiction rather than a “bad habit” – then any gimmick like this is doomed to fail.

    1. Hey MTM 🙂 I agree but it was a necessary part of both of our journeys to figure out that actually we couldn’t moderate! As you say it won’t change the habit but writing it down might remove the denial that a person can control their drinking for more than a few days, weeks or months. I had to go through this step to realise that actually stopping was the solution not the failed attempts at controlled drinking.

      1. Yes – that is so true. It’s why the simple act of writing it down changes the action immediately – so much harder to drink in denial when you have the stake truth written down in black and white. And yes, the fact that I tried it and it didn’t work (for more than a few weeks) helped me to see the truth of my own situation once I was prepared to look at it, albeit some years later! I suspect, though, that if you need a tool like this to manage your drinking, then you already have a problem.

      2. I agree MTM – and using this kind of tool will either right your drinking or solidify the knowledge that you might have a problem and need some help 😉
