I know this is serious.. I'm terrified. I'm sitting here on my couch with my dog and cat.. two beings that depend on me.. I have no job..no money and no friends but somehow by the grace of god I managed to pay rent for the month of may. Alcoholism runs in the family... My dad, aunts and uncles and grand folks.. I've reached out for help several times..doctor visits and therapy.. and look at where i'm at now. I feel pathetic and

But what are you going to do about it today? No matter how bad you feel....just sitting there doesn't help. There is hope.

How do you feel? Are you afraid to drink or feel medically scared? You will be ok. Hang in there

your rent is paid for May, that's great.

Now.... that means you've got a timeline; the rest of the month to take action on sobriety and getting something figured out for next month.

One thing at a time.

Look up AA in your area and get there.

Also - don't drink.

Everything can change for you. For the better. For amazing betterment....

it's up to you.

I really enjoy getting out on my john deere riding mower and just cutting for hours listening to my iPod. Soaking up the sun.....it's very therapeutic for me. I have been trying to surround myself with inspirational books and staying connected with people that I have ignored in the past. I have found that by staying connected with people helps me so much. Even if it's just a quick "hello" text to someone I haven't talked to in awhile. It breaks the loneliness and reclusiveness that I sometimes hide in....I'm so happy you called your aunt

That's a good plan. You can then get through the first part safely.
