First day of a new life

Ready to kick this once and for all. It's going to take some time, but each day is a new step in the right direction for our entire family. My husband joined earlier tonight and I decided that I would as well, so that we can work on this together. I know that I can't do it on my own, I've tried and always seem to go back even after a few months of not drinking. I always think that I can have just one and that's never the case it's always one more, and so on. Just ready to be in complete control, this also includes giving up cigarettes.

Thank you both! Dee, I am going to take it one day at a time. I plan to start eating right, going to the gym with my husband, and spending more time at home doing the things that we love to do as a family, when we are home.

All the best to you and your Husband. You have already seen that its not going to happen without a little help. That being said try looking for a Group in your area. One thing that you seem to now know but I'll say it anyways. You are not going to ever be a social drinker. EVER so give up that thought right now. This is a lifetime of vigilance. Don't throw away another few months by thinking you can have just one. That's just the Monster playing with you. You have made a brave decision along with your Husband. I applaud you both!

>> this also includes giving up cigarettes.

I quit smoking in 2/92 (thus my name). It can be done. It's tough and nicotine is a creepy and sneaky drug that will work hard to convince you that you need to continue. Drinking/drugs took me a lot longer. I say this with less than two months of sobriety so I'm not out of the woods ... actually, I'm still stuck in a tree. Be strong, don't give up, and keep posting.
