Self Management Balance Moderation Personal Responsibility
WE ARE HERE:
“I have heard that, with some persons, temperance â€“ that is, moderation â€“ is almost impossible; and if abstinence be an evil (which some have doubted), no one will deny that excess is a greater. Some parents have entirely prohibited their children from tasting intoxicating liquors; but a parent’s authority cannot last for ever; children are naturally prone to hanker after forbidden things; and a child, in such a case, would be likely to have a strong curiosity to taste, and try the effect of what has been so lauded and enjoyed by others, so strictly forbidden to himself â€“ which curiosity would generally be gratified on the first convenient opportunity; and the restraint once broken, serious consequences might ensue.”
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.
