Abs Chat Tonight

Hi all,
I'll be hosting Abs Chat Tonight at the MM Chatroom. Abs Chat is for anyone who is absing for any amount of time, anyone who is curious about absing. Sorry, absing, is MM lingo for not drinking. Over at MM we believe that sobriety can also be reached by successful moderation for some.
But Wednesday nights are all about not drinking at the MM chatroom and no talk of moderation is allowed.
So if you want to chat. lurk or just hang out so you don't drink, stop by. Here's the info and link.

Abs Chat Tonight! 

Abs Chat is focused on abstaining from alcohol—on a permanent basis,
long-term, or even for a shorter period of time (like a 30!).
Everyone is welcome to attend, and to participate, but we won't be
discussing moderation techniques or plans. For discussions of
moderate drinking, we invite you to participate in the Monday Night
Book Chat or the Tuesday Night Online Meeting.
So if you're abstaining, planning to, curious about it, wondering
whether it would be a good idea, or just want to hang out for sober
fun, stop by!
See you there! http://www.moderation. org/chat/

** PLEASE NOTE: Abs Chat will be held in the Abs Chatroom. When
logging in, use the drop-down box to select MM_Abs_Chat. If you wind
up in the wrong room, you can move between rooms by clicking on the
room list to the right of the chatroom screen. **


  1. So funny! I thought Abs chat was chatting about how we haven't been able to see our Abs for years due to wine bellies!

    Seriously though, see if you can convince any of those moderators that moderation is way more had work than sober is. What a miserable way to live....

    Good luck!

  2. One of the reasons I stay so active on MM, other than I consider them "my gang," is because when I was trying to moderate there was an active member who had decided to go permanent abs who posted regularly. He never tried to talk anyone out of pursuing moderation, but he was kind of the Pied Piper and a bunch of us wanted to follow him where he lead because his posts were so serene and positive. They were quite a contrast to the angst ridden posts of us who were struggling.
