Are there any alternatives to 12 step programmes?
Congrats on day 2! That first week is the worst. If you know it's gonna suck then it's not so bad.... make sense? I haven't done the 12 step program. My journey has been a personal journey and I have used the resources I have found on SR. In the beginning I didn't have the support of family and friends and now I do so it does get better in time. Medical School! you don't want to mess that up!
