As you've guessed, I try to make cleansing easy, rewarding, enlightening and fun for myself. I hope you find, as I have, that's exactly what cleansing is for you.
But here's some advice from the hubby if you're having trouble on your cleanse, if it's not all classic novels and your favorite music and dancing through cravings and butterflies in your empty wine glass. Because he benefits from my cleansing (almost) as much as I do, and has lived through all the ups and downs of alcoholism with me, I definitely think he earns the right to chime in.
He says it doesn't matter if cleansing is hard for you. It doesn't matter if you have to hold a gun to your head. Or if you pull your hair out every day. Do it. Do it. Do it. It'll be worth it in the long run. Because as hard as it is, not only could it help you with a serious drinking problem (i.e. save your life, your health, your family, your job, your friends, your happiness). Not only can cleansing do all of that, but in the end, you'll have a full, fun, enjoyable life. It's not about sacrifice. It's about growing and learning. And remember, don't worry ... hang in there. You've got another drink coming. ;)
