I know when I was gambling, I had plans to do all sorts of things including giving up drinking and going on a diet. I found that I had to concentrate on one or at the most two things at the same time – depriving myself of too much just sent me into cravings – mainly of the gambling variety.
Drinking in moderation is fine – and if you feel it is getting out of hand in the future – then the tools you have used to stop smoking and gambling can be put to use again. Eat as well as you can, but don’t deprive yourself. If you need to go on a serious diet – wait (if you can) until your recovery is stronger and we are in happier times! Take good care of yourself.
