hi,
my name is rebecca, i am an alcoholic and recovering anorexic/bulimic, and also new to these message boards.
i got sober on april 9th 2010 and was sober for one year and one week but have been relapsing a lot since april of this year. my new sober date is yesterday and i am not giving up on sobriety even though it's hard as hell a lot of the time.
i go to AA since the first time i got sober, sometimes more regularly than other times. i kind of stay on the outskirts and don't really take part of it all because of huge fears.
anyway, just wanted to say hi and it's nice to meet you all!

Hi Rebecca,

Welcome to SR - this is a wonderful support forum. I know I would not be at 28 days if it weren't for here. Keep reading and posting. And most of all, remember, you can do this.

Be well.

Hi Rebecca, Well I understand completely what you are dealing with as I too am alcoholic and desparately trying to be a recovering anorexic/bulimic. In my self-pitying I used to say 'those alcoholics are the lucky ones, they have it so easy'. at times it feels that ingesting anything commes with a huge price. Anyway enough of that misery. The relapse business is very soul destroying and I am coming back from what I hope (and am actively working on too) is my last. I am working so hard to get out there and enjoy my life, otherwise really I might as well be drinking. It will come soon though I am nearly ready.
I hope that you can get out too. When I have had my sober periods life has been wonderful and I have been wonderful. And then the relapses come with more heavy prices to pay in terms of the ensuing despair.
Anyway will spend this evening drowning myself in self help books and looking forward to tomorrow.
Thinking of you
