New here

Hi folks,

I am 6 days sober and looking for online support. I've been drinking myself to sleep for years and didmy share of the unthinkable while drunk in my youth. I've quit 3 times, once during each pregnancy and once for 2 years with aa, but aa didn't sit right with me in the long run. I felt pressure or build a life around the other members and it wasn't particularly anonymous in my town. Looking forward to learning about your triumphs, challenges and journeys!

Welcome to SR. Congrats on 6 days!!!

There are alternatives to AA, and lots of information about other methods can be found in these forums. Keep reading until you find the one that works for you. You're in the right place to quit!

Welcome! You made a great choice in not drinking and joining SR. One day at a time is the only advice I can give you since I am recently sober myself.

Keep a strong mental attitude.
