Kudos to this site

I have been lurking for a few days and really think this site is great! I have been searching the net and most of the forums I visited were a little too icky poo for me. I want to thank the members of this forum for giving me a place to find answers to many of the questions I have been searching for. Nowhere else could I find info on what to expect when quitting or any sort of time frame so thanks especially for that.

I have been sober for 15 days. What a great feeling! It has been a long hard road so far but I am going to only think positive and anticipate greatness to come. I am hoping that my 2 years of counseling had given me some of the tools to accomplish this daunting task. I finally fessed up to her about my drinking and she sent me to an outpatient program and I have been there or aa meetings every night since.

My down time has been saved by reading the posts here. I'm a little shy so hopefully I will continue to be comfortable enough to post often.

Greetings to all and thanks again.

Hi,
Welcome to SR. It's so nice to hear how coming here is helping you...and I'm always happy to meet another person who appreciates chocolate! I'm going to have some 65% cacao/ extra dark after lunch.
Congrats for your 15!
