About This Thread

Looks as though this thread has become popular again, here in 2010 (it's now 2018, and it started in 2008, so I think "still popular" might be more apt! :-) G ) :-) Good Luck everyone.

Some acronyms, in case people use them:
JFT - Just for today
ODAAT - One day at a time
KIS - Keep it simple
TBOGUA - The Benefits Of Giving Up Alcohol (the title of this thread!)
There is an article summarising some of the benefits, to save you having to trawl through the thread.

And a great list of Alternative Drinks started by the lovely LindsD here:

And another great list, this time of treats as alternatives to alcohol and some welcome distractions. Thanks RunHappy!
