Hey thrifty! It's great to have you with us. You sound positive and ready to do this.
I drank for almost 30 yrs. & for a long time I didn't realize what a problem it was either. Eventually, any control I had was gone. I crashed & burned terribly towards the end of my career. SR helped me to see the light, and I began to get well. I was so thankful to not be alone anymore. I hope you feel the same.

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.
