“It’s time. All of this pretending and performing â€“these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt â€“has to go. Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you needed these protections when you were small. I understand that you believed your armor could help you secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy and lovable, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever. Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. The time has come to let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.”
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.
