Self Management Balance Moderation Personal Responsibility
WE ARE HERE:
“He is remorseful after serious drinking bouts and tells you he wants to stop . But when he gets over the spree, he begins to think once more how he can drink moderately next time. We think this person is in danger. These are the earmarks of a real alcoholic. Perhaps he can still tend to business fairly well. He has by no means ruined everything. As we say among ourselves, ‘HE WANTS TO WANT TO STOP.’”
~ Alcoholics Anonymous - The ‘Big Book’ Chapter 8 - To Wives
MM Friendly Therapists (http://members.moderation.org/therapists/): More and more therapists are starting to recognize the value of addressing drinking problems early, when moderation is still a viable option. Each of the therapists listed in this directory has agreed to describe themselves as ‘Moderation Friendly’.
MM Chat Room: Monday night's online meeting is a great way to ‘meet’ Members from around the world. Tuesday’s Book Chat covers one chapter from the book Responsible Drinking per week. Wednesdays are ‘Abs Chat’, which welcomes both permanent and temporary abstainers.
The Moderation Management Main List Listserv: The listserv has over one thousand subscribers, most of whom lurk, but dozens of whom post. It is high traffic - as many as 200 posts per day, but it remains the closest thing MM offers to 24/7 support. Many sage old-timers share their wisdom here. Our popular Listserv is one of the oldest services of it’s type.
