feeling strong today

I know its early but you know I have never felt so determined or cared so much to quit drinking. I hate that I depended on alcohol as a way to cope for so long. I was a 1-2 night binger, so not as much as some, but I looked forward to those nights...No more. I do finally believe that alcohol just helped to keep me down in life, it made me feel worse about myself and weak.

I want to handle what life throws at me and cope, in a healthy way. No more hiding. I feel a little defiant today.

on your journey..........I started here in 2003. LIfe is still a handful and just downright stormy and nasty half the time, but within me now I have healthy tools and a better attitude and I actually LOVE life now. I NEVER thought I would be able to say that when I first arrived.

Keep posting, lots of great people here......

It's great that you're feeling that inner strength today. We need all those days we can get! I kinda like that word "defiant!"
