      I ordered Brain Recovery Am and Pm and will start there, then I will move to adding in Total Aminos. I do pray that this gives me a boost! Again my issue is alcohol and I am not on any meds to curb cravings. I just think I am always looking for a quick fix whether it be chocolate, coffee and now more recently the re-occurrence of wanting that high from alcohol. 🙁

      Dodge Ball cracked me up many years ago, I never laughed so loudly in a theater. I love Princess Bride also. I don’t watch a lot of movies. Modern Family is funny as is The Middle.
      I love you Man is also hilarious.

      Those are what I can think of at the moment!

      I can’t wait to learn more about what supplements will help with certain brain chemicals. I eat clean, whole foods – am gluten free, dairy free, and eat paleo at the moment. I still find sugar cravings come, coffee cravings and most recently alcohol CRAVINGS. These were NOT existent for 6 years being sober. I did not want to give up the social aspect of alcohol, but i had no craving for it. Now it’s like my brain wants it to relax me and take away my fears and anxiety even though I know MANY ways to do that naturally. I am finding it extremely challenging. So I can’t wait to learn more!

      I get a lot of support from my friends and family. All are very supportive when I fall into an area of abusing alcohol. My husband unfortunately is a very heavy drinker and can be supportive in some ways, but not others and totally depends on his mood. He is my biggest trigger when it comes to wanting to forget all my problems. Ironic part is for 6 years I kept waiting for him to wake up like me, and he has not and it has backfired to me doing exactly what I don’t want him doing.

      I love my work, I love to walk, hike, bike, ski, sail and do crossfit and yoga. I love the beach, nature, being outside. I love to learn, especially about ways to improve health.

      I meditate, but not regularly as I would like. I regularly use healing modalities to help me in my journey. Acupressure/acupuncture, breath work, massage etc.

      I would love to have a spiritual center that is not religious based and will attend the place I keep saying I will. I have so much support around me and am so excited to learn more about why I just can’t make my brain chemicals happy all the time and have these bouts of using alcohol to drown things out and give me temporary happiness. Thanks

      Hi Dr Alex. So happy to be here. I look forward to learning how I can cope with my addictive inclination toward alcohol. My intention is to learn from others here on the forum and to learn (of course) from YOU, an addiction expert and integrative doctor, who has helped so many others. I connected immediately with everything that was given to us in the webinar and your passion for helping people to HEAL the brain. That is what is most fascinating to me. I am looking for a different way to approach this part of my life that has most recently re-raised it’s ugly head after 5 1/2 years sober. That’s all for me now. Thank you for listening.
