Day 4

Good morning.

First post after lurking for weeks, wondering if this was the right place to spend time. Given the encouragement I've seen for others, and felt, I decided it was the right place and the right time.

I've not had the horrible experiences of many I've seen on the list. I have been called out, however, by my spouse a couple of times. I know I've misused alcohol, and that's why I'm here. I need to clean up my act -- for my spouse, for my kids, and for our checkbook!

And so, here I am on day 4 -- a Saturday, which is generally a difficult day to avoid drinking. My plan is stay productively busy, and away from the free afternoon wine-tasting at my local shop, which generally starts me down a path I'll later regret.

Thanks for all the support I've seen and received!

Welcome!
If drink is causing a problem for you then you are in the right place.

Hi fish!
Welcome to SR
I lurked for weeks before my first post, as well as my first day without a drink.
I am so happy I found this site!
Very knowledgeable people here.
