Erene...a call to your local AA/AFG hotline can put you in touch with AA members who would be glad to meet with you before a 12step meeting.

A general medical physical would also be helpful.

There is no shame for having an illness.

May recovery come swift and sure to you.

Keep are helping others.

I was older when I quit too, Erene. You're doing the right thing, and you'll never regret it.

I was so afraid to let go of something I'd used all my life - to cope and relax. In the end it wasn't even enjoyable anymore, just a terrible habit that was destroying me. SR helped give me the courage to change. I hope you'll feel the same way - glad to have you with us.

I think that you will find the "Doctors Opinion" very interesting
some will say read the first 164 pages of the book
but -- what about the "Doctors Opinion" ?
not something to leave out of our early reading
