hello

Im 22 and an alcoholic. ive been drinking since I was 12. my whole family drinks every day. it seems like I cant get away from it. ive only had 2 boyfriends, both for 3 years and they both were alcoholics and made me way worse. im depressed and want to die sometimes. I have no (good) friends because of this. I also take pills and mix it with alcohol whenever I get my hands on them. My aunt got me into pills when I was 16 (Xanax, etc) Help please?

Smile Welcome

Welcome. You came to the right place. Lots of people who have found recovery and will share their time and encouragement. If they can do it so can you.

Take it one day at a time. You have what it takes. You took the first step. The most important one.

Let a smile be your umbrella. Being sober is being true, being natural. We are all naturally good on the inside.

Welcome Libit!

Please continue to post here so we can get to know you better. Xanax? I have never been on that but it seems an awful habit to kick. I am sure others will be along to help.

Welcome to SR lilbit. Everyone understands what you're going through. I hope it helps that you're no longer alone with this. I felt so much better when I had others to talk to about my feelings. Glad you are here!

Hi Lilibit

you're not alone here - everyone understand what you're going through

We have a Class of May 2013 thread in this forum for everyone quitting or trying to quit this month - why not check it out?

Hey there lilbit09,

You came to the right spot to get help. I am new here too and already have found support for my own issues with substance abuse. Keep your head up and things do seem to get better for us. Remember there are people who have been where you are and you are definitely not alone.

Have you considered counseling? I got (and stay) sober with the help of my counselor and this site. It's been working for me for over three years now. You can live a sober life too.
