Hello, I'm new here. I'm just trying to get support for a few things. and thought I'd give this a try. I've had high cholesterol probably most of my life. After my dad passed away in 2015, I started drinking more. I'm not really sure why. He lived in another state and I really only talked to him once in a while. But I did love him dearly. I have rules with myself. I can't start drinking until at least 8pm. but then I drink until I fall asleep. I really would like to cut back. I tell myself everyday .....today will be the day. But when 8 o'clock comes around I can't do it. I also have gained about 20 pounds. I know in my head if I just cut back drinking....my weight would come down and so would my cholesterol. So I thought I'd give this a try. Thanks for listening to me. 😊

      I'm truly so sorry to hear about your dad. Losing family members is my biggest fear. I can't imagine the pain you must be feeling. I also am looking to cut down on the drinking. My inbox is open, friend.

        @proudcloud sorry, I'm learning this new app. I'm not sure what those up and down arrows mean. I hit the down by accident and then I panicked and hit the up. Lol...I'm guessing it's like a thumbs up in Facebook....I don't know. Anyway....I don't even understand why I drink every night. The terrible part is no one knows. I hide it from my kids and my husband. Just writing this on this app scares me. That somehow they will find out. I'm not a fall drunk. I just drink to fall asleep without having to think about things. I don't even know why I do it? I mean is it because of my dad?🤔 I don't even know. I just know that, that's when it started. Are you trying to cut back. I'd like to know your story...if you don't mind sharing.
