Unfortunately I drank Sunday. I realize I need to go to aa. I'm going to do online meetings.i realize I'm totally powerless to keep my self from picking up. Going to aa is only time I have been able to get sober. I can't stay sober without help.
the craving builds until I drink. I don't want to drink.. David

If AA is what you need them it makes sense to keep going to AA. Of course,there's nothing wrong with using us too
Post here before you drink again.

We'll do our very best to talk you out of it

If AA is the only thing that has worked in the past, it's a great plan to get back to it! I owe my sobriety to it, and SR. Telling on yourself is so important. I'm glad you are here.

Whatever works.

You don't have to do it perfectly.

Sounds like you know what works David, I'd agree that going back to that is likely a good idea. Also remember that being powerless over alcohol does not mean that you are weak or that you do not still have free will and the power to make choices in your life. It's still up to you to make the decision to pick up or not - but having a support network around you very much helps. Don't forget that you can come here too - someone is usually here on SR almost 24/7.

Help is a good thing. AA is a place for help. I went for the first few months and it did help.

I hope you find what you're looking for when you go - but even if it's not perfect, Keep Coming Back.

You CAN stop drinking.

AA and this website were two important factors in my getting sober. Use both.

Thanks for the support.
Im going to five aa another go Going to online aa meeting tomorrow. I've been In person but not virtually.i went to aa for 6 years. I'm really nervous about going back even I need it. Today was awful so I felt so bad. I was so ashamed I almost didn't come back here. One thing I realized is I didn't Acknowledge how much I was craving a drink. I thought if I ignored it I would go away.
