New to forum

Hi all, been lurking a long time. Figured I'd join in on some conversation. My story: heavy drinker age 15-26. Started at a pint a day as a youngster then grew to a handle a day. Kept it together til the past couple years. Several failed attempts and a few detox stays. On day 5 now (that's big for me) still having some withdrawals but I hope worst is behind me. I feel my mind is finally in a spot that this time may be successful. Over it, 11 years of reliance on the bottle has me almost resentful of it at this point. Gf and family are behind me all the way so that helps. Look forward to being a member here. have read alot of great posts. Thanks guys

I think a big step for me is finally realizing I can't have that first drink. Turns into a disaster Everytime. Trying to learn how to live without.
