Continuing the discussion from Why moderation is not usually possible:
This video has been shared on a couple other threads and I think it’s important for anyone who is struggling with trying to drink in moderation. I know for me, drinking in moderation is so extremely exhausting it’s just not worth it. I constantly have to think about how many drinks have I had, how quickly have I been drinking them, what have I been mixing together, etc. It gets to the point where I’m frustrated and irritated, it’s too much and many times I’ve just said f*** this and completely go down hill. It’s mentally exhausting to moderate yourself. But that’s the key too, isn’t it? If you have to moderate yourself, then the topic of concern shouldn’t even be moderation, it should be I’m having a problem that I need to pay attention to. So, I think this is a really great video to watch and hopefully it will help you if you are struggling.
