Hi, 40 days sober today and I am feeling really good about myself. I decided to join the forum because I have had a very rough week (2 family members in hospital with very serious medical conditions) and as there are not a lot of support meetings in my area I was hoping this would help me. I can see that I will benefit far more that I thought and am very please to be here!

thanks for the welcome.
I have been doing well; I have tried to stop many many times and have always struggled with acceptance and surrender. This time I realised my life as it was was not worth living and that I had to get profesional help and be honest about my drinking.
I have a great therapist who I speak to or e-mail daily and I am working on changing my way of thinking and it's working really well for me.

Welcome seahorse! I hope things will improve for your family.

I'm glad you're feeling good about yourself at 40 days. We all know how hard it is to achieve that goal. Glad to have you here - I think you'll really benefit from the support and encouragement.
