I made it through the weekend and now I'm on my way...
So I went to the wedding and just as a coincidence i got food poisoning right before i left so i wasnt feeling well at the wedding which means i only had a couple glasses of wine...i mostly drank ginger ale all night and i still had fun...who would have thought :P
I went to my doctor today and told him my problems and that i wanted to get better so i agreed to go to an AA meeting and have one planned for thursday night (women only). Also, I agreed no alcohol or weed for a week and then i am going back to him so we can get started on talking. Halloween is wednesday and people keep asking me to go out drinking but I plan on just staying home and giving out candy with my nephew and studying. Also, I;ve cut ties with a couple 'toxic' people (the ones where drinking was the only activity shared) so I can get myself into a better environment. So the road begins... My ex whom we'll call A since I hate the term ex...has been a tremendous help. I am surprised he is willing to help me considering all of the things I have done to him but I am so happy he is supportive and I hope one day I can make it up to him but for now I'm ready to get better.

You do have a good beginning by talking with your doctor. The doctors these days seem more educated on alcohol problems than ever before.....course some doctors are alcoholics in recovery also. Doubt if they do share that though. In our small rural area lots of things are shared that shouldn't be.
It sounds like you and the doc have a good plan started. I am glad A is going to help support you. I am lucky to have a very understanding family....five children and two of them are not married anymore. My husband has been supportive this time around. The first time I sobered up was a different story...too long to go into.
Keep up the good work!!! :praying
