24 and ready to change

Hey all I just turned 24 march 7th and 11 days later I've had enough drinking.. My alcoholism has been going on for about 10 years and I have finally had it. I have a 15 month old beautiful blue eyed baby girl who is my angel and I cannot stand doing this to my family anymore. My fiancÚ has stuck with me for 3 years and is always on my side. I always want to test myself and say yeah I can have just a 6 pack but it always leads to drinking and driving to get more if I can't find a ride. Or I would end up at a bar and driving with drunk friends. I may not drink every day but I obviously have no control over this when I do drink and I am not putting my life or anyone elses life in danger no more . I am too good of a person to let this disease control me ive embarrassed myself for the last time. This is going to be the hardest thing I have ever done and I hope to have you all get to know me and help me through this terrible nightmare. Thank you guys!

You can do it. My daughter is 9 and oh how I wish I had committed when she was a baby. I hope you take that to heart. This is a great place. Welcome.

Welcome PureLife - Life really is better without alcohol. It just takes some time to get used to it. There are so many benefits, though (like no hangovers anymore!). And since alcoholism always gets worse, the sooner we stop the better!

Glad you're here!
