Time to stop lurking!

It's time for me to stop lurking through everyone else's posts, and start to do some of my own. I have struggled with drinking for all my adult life, started with binge drinking during college, with the past 5 years being a bottle of wine a day - with way more over the weekends. Now sober for 4 days, and have been reading SR for most of that time. Thank you all for your words of wisdom and experience.

Welcome Suzy! You will find this board to be
very helpful. Congrats on the 4 days!

8 days for me now. I too was a bottle of wine a day with more on the weekends. It's hard, but a good support system is helpful!

We're so glad to have you here, SuziQ.

I remember not feeling well for a few days - sniffles, feverish & very tired. Not sure if it had anything to do with withdrawal. I hope you feel better tomorrow.
