Mandi if both your parents are in AA then I have a very strong feeling they will be releived to find you in the rooms. With over 60 years of sobriety between the 2 of them I doubt very seriously if they were not already aware you were an alcoholic before you did!
Will they worry? Look a parents primary job is to worry about their kids!!! I have 6, with an equal # of grandkids with more on the way and I worry about them all, I do not obsess about it because it is out my hands.
Parents worry about their kids, alcoholic or not. My son is an alcoholic, I was elated when he finally admitted it, he is sober now and if he stays that way will enjoy far more years sober then I ever will.
Last night i was very close to drinking again- i was not in a good place in my head, doing my 1st step this fri though so hopefully starting the steps will help get things better.
Did you call your sponsor or anyone else in the program? Strong urges usually do not last that long unless you give in, then they will last just long enough to take that first drink which leads to another drunk. A simple phone call to someone in the program will get one by that urge a lot quicker and easier then trying to tough it out on your own.
BTW once you tell your parents that will open the door for you calling them when the urge hits!!!
Oh yea I forgot to mention that the steps lead to the miracle!
