You are in the right place! Check out the 30 days and under thread, year and under, and the April2013 thread. All offer great support and advice.
Good luck my friend

Wanting to stop drinking is a really good indicator that you might be ready to stop drinking.

Stick around, post frequently, and read frequently. There is a lot to learn here. I went from a daily drinker to only having a few slip ups over the last 6 weeks. And I'm doing better all the time. And if I can do it, believe me, you can too.

Welcome. Many have been helped greatly by face to face meetings like AA. Go at it with a clear head by not drinking today and again each day. BE WELL

I wanted to stop drinking for 10 years, but wasn't able to stop until I went to AA. Just my experience, but also the experience of many others. I'd suggest going to a meeting, introducing yourself as a newcomer, getting some phone numbers, and finding a sponsor.

I changed the sentence to:
"I am going to learn how to resist the impulse to drink again."
This put it into a self solving context that worked for me.
