Welcome!!! Realizing you need to quit is a great first step! I've only been here a few days and the encouragement has been amazing!

Welcome to SR hobbit! I'm glad you're taking a look at what drinking is doing to your health. I was older, too, when I finally had to let go of my life long habit. It felt strange at first - but now I'm so thankful to be free of it.

You can do this! We're happy you found us - this is a great place for support.

Admitting there is a problem is the first step to solving it. You've come to a very supportive place.
