Hi Jason,

Admitting you have a problem and asking for help is a really good place to start. Welcome.

Welcome to SR Jason! You might want to consider making an appt to see your primary care doc. Quitting cold turkey can be quite hard if not dangerous for your body. Plus there are meds that make the process easier.
Good luck to you.

WELCOME JASON! This is a great place to be. Seeing a doctor was very important for me when I first got sober. We can't give medical advice (and I know you're not asking for it) but it's dangerous and possibly deadly to go cold-turkey. Getting medical attention helped me focus so much more on my recovery instead of the ravaging pain. I'm glad you made it here.. It does get better

welcome to SR Jason

There's many different approaches and methods of recovery around - if you're interested, here's some links to some of the main players:

http://www.soberrecovery.com/forums/...formation.html (Recovery Programs and Resources Information)

I recommend you visit the Secular Connections forum if you think you may benefit from a non 12 step approach.
