    Thanks again

    Thanks again, folks, for initiating the Sober October challenge. Even though I came late and left early, it really helped me start my 36-week program off right. I had only scheduled to stay on until Thursday, so I can only claim a little over two weeks. And without the discipline of this forum, I couldn't even have done that.

    By the way, what happened to me Thursday and Friday (see the training journal, if you want the gory details) is a very good object lesson about how NOT to come off a challenge. Briefly, I over-indulged, broke my weekly alcohol targets, and - surprise, surprise - my progress decelerated significantly. I'm back on track again, thank goodness, but a sadder and wiser Bear.

    In short, Sober October was very good, but it's not the same as internalizing a sustainable change in behavior. That is my next, fundamental, and long-term challenge.

    Deja, thanks for starting this and thanks to all who participated. Knowing that I wasn't alone was instrumental many of my decisions.

    Good luck to all going forward.
