I feel like I have drinking too much lately. So, I will be having a 90 day trial of not drinking nor smoking, and see how it goes. If it's ok, and I feel good, then I'll keep it as long as possible.
I have been searching for AA meetings, but they are not really my cup of tea. At least the ones I have found.
Now I'm on my first days, and everything is sort of ok, since all of these days are parties and parties, I'm trying to stay away from it.
I live with smokers and drinkers, so... it's sometimes hard.
So, i came here for support... and.. to say hello!
kisses to y'all

Hi and welcome.
AA is not a program for everyone. Personally it has worked well for me but I know many people who have utilized other methods and been successful so I encourage you to keep trying until you find what works for you as you are what matters not what program you choose to use. Here is a good resource that lists many of the different programs available. Some are online, some are used by people here at SR, but there is usually something for everyone there. I encourage you to take a look at it. http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...formation.html (Recovery Programs and Resources Information)
Good luck and hope you keep us updated and let us be here for support and encouragement during this time.

Depression is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being too strong for too long.

I thought all the parties ended on the 1st?! No one told me the change in plans. :-P
There are many other ways than AA. I love more women focused groups like Women For Sobriety...and I see Nandm gave link for the others.
Thinking if you live with smokers and drinkers that you might need to immerse yourself in truly walking your own path - be it here, be it at a meeting (no one meeting is alike), something as simple as reading a book/watching movie. Become VERY independent.
Most of my changes came from breaking habits. That meant for several months, near everything had to be different. Shopping, hanging out, driving home from work, remembering to eat often, talking...writing.
My best to you
Strong people keep moving forward anyway, no matter what they're going to find.
