Hi Cold. Welcome. You've come to the right place. I also wrote down all the reasons why I needed to stop, and all the good things that happened when I did. It helps to read it.

You are among friends here.

Welcome.

Get to as many meetings as you can and get a sponsor! Congratulations on making a decision that will change your life. You will discover that being an alcoholic is not a bad thing - it will open your mind and soul to a whole new way of living. You will learn to love again, beginning with yourself.

Welcome to SR! I'm glad you found us and joined the family. Congrats on deciding to live a sober life. It's so much better living sober than drinking.

Hi Cold - I understood what you said - loud and clear. I am the same - everything bad that ever happened was because of alcohol abuse. I hope we never go back to living that way.

Be proud of yourself for coming here and telling your story. This is a wonderful place with many great people who really understand what you are going through. Looking forward to hearing more about you.
