I have been looking at this group since you started it Alexander. I like the pink and the chastity belt logo and I was watching to see who would join and commit to abstaining from something. No-one else has so I thought I would keep you company. I don't smoke and have given up drinking a few times. When I do drink it affects me way too much and I always give up again the next day for another couple of months. So this time I will join you and give up for a year and then take it from there.

I thought with the word "anonymous" in the group title that you might like us to "sponsor" each other like in AA. So if we feel like drinking we should email each other and talk each other out of it. What do you think?

Welcome MadameBike!

It's very good of you to join. I'm sure that as time goes by more people will join as it is still early days. This group is a little different from the others. I believe it is a very 'normal' group as everyone some time in their lives tries something, likes it and either sticks with it or stops / adstains from it.

For some people it could be abstaining from watching T.V. , chocholate, over spending, bad comedies, drugs. It could be anything.

I think it's a good idea to give each other support. I have researched AA, Smart Recovery and some others. I think AA is good however there is one area I completely disagree with. It's the part where you have to say that you have no control over the substance.

I believe you can achieve control over anything. if you don't have control then it's just because you havn't learnt how to do it yet.

Change is a process, not an event.

Also, annonymity is good and I respect it. I however choose not to be. I am who I am, I'm proud to be who I am.

I personaly believe that a person can achieve anything they really want if they apply themself. You have to have a burning desire to achieve what you want.

So in answer to your question yes I think it would be great to support each other and if you feel like a drink then I'll get you out there cycling with me and vise versa :-)

Abstaining through Cycling Anonymous or Not Group is a very relaxed group for people or anyone exercising their will-power and that make use of the therapeutic effects of cycling to achieve abstinence from anything in particular or achieve other goals.

People can share their experiences, techniques, wisdom and gain support. Anyone can join.

I have a great interest in the human body and mind, I am intrigued by habit's good and bad as humans are creatures of habit. It is widely accepted that to pick-up or drop a habit takes around 21 days.

I think the body and mind have wonderful healing powers of their own, without help from the chemist (please don’t stop taking any medicines prescribed on my account). I think that GP's should consider prescribing cycling at times instead of sending people to the chemist...and also prescribing other types of exercise.

I think exercise, especially cycling can be a solution to many ailments including depression, lack of motivation, addiction, obesity. There have even been positive studies that have found exercise can be of benefit to people suffering from ADD, ADHD and other's.

Of all the reasons people choose to cycle or exercise, medicinal purpose is becoming a growing reason.

PS: Please excuse any grammatical errors as half the time I am uploading things in a rush at work or from my iPhone ;-)

Welcome John and good luck to you in your efforts to cut down motor vehicle use. May the bibycle keep helping you achieve this goal and neautralise any negative impact foodaholism may be / have impacted on you.

I believe bikeaholism is one of the more possitive addictions for one's health, depending on whether or not you are still able to afford to have food on the table.

K, here are my goals:
No alcohol for 365 days (and maybe longer?)
No cigarettes (not difficult as I don't smoke).
Lose about 20kg, though I don't weigh myself so I will just say I want to fit into my Levi 501's that I used to fit into about 10 years ago.
Eat more healthy food and less fatty food.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Good luck!

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom...
