It is VERY scary. Admittingly and regretfully, i have always cared about what others thought of me. My road has been rough and I have prided myself on getting "through" alot if hardships even though they probably weren't the healthiest ways. I get scared knowing that I will have to admit to others that I am powerless to alcohol. I am tearful and terrified but kind of excited. Just a bunch of mixed emotions. It's hard for me to open up to people due to trust issues. I am trying to stay positive and will be in a meeting very soon. Thanks so much for reaching out to me. I really appreciate it. Hugs.
