It made me think how different it is when you announce you are quitting alcohol. 'What?' people say. 'Why do you want to do that?' and similar comments.
Drinking is so much part of so many people's lives it is no wonder it is hard to find genuine support when you first start to quit.
It gets easier of course once you are past the first few weeks because them you have the moral high ground and if challenged can truly state the benefits you are experiencing.
It is a good thing there are groups like Club Soda to provide help and advice for those initial weeks. Do make use of all the help that is available and I am always happy to help where I can. Best of luck.
