Day one

I've decided to quit drinking. I have been drinking for 12 years and have lost everything I have loved and have messed up a lot of good opertunitys. The when I don't drink I have nightmares I don't handle emotions very good and need to drink but am also not looking forward to reality.

Have a visit with your Doctor and provide full disclosure. Yes?

As Xune said... Better check first. Detox can be brutal and dangerous

Welcome Jay -

Glad you've made this decision! It's not easy facing day 1, but things will improve as you move forward. Don't hesitate to get medical help if you have withdrawal symptoms. Glad you're here!

Welcome Jay, Xune has a good point about seeing your doctor. Logging onto SR and reading and posting can be a good start to your plan. Lots of great support here.

Congrats on your decision to stop drinking.

Proud of you. One day at a time, but I agree you should talk to a doctor , detox can be very dangerous. Good luck, keep coming back.
