I can relate, tipsytoangry. I joined AA over 7 months ago on my free will. I didn't need treatment, I didn't have physical withdrawal, and questioned for quite a while if I was alcoholic (ironic since I reached out for help on my own). I sometimes have those same thoughts about how others may view my addiction and bottom, since it was pretty high compared to others, but the truth is that it doesn't matter. I couldn't tell you how many people have told me they wish they would have gotten sober as early as I have. All I know is that AA has helped me more than anything and there's a sense of feeling at home there and finding "my people", despite differences of stories, bottoms, etc.

It may or may not be for you, but don't let that fear hold you back from trying it
