This is my first real step to sobriety

I want to be sober. Frankly, I know I drink too much, and I want to give it up. I need to do this for myself and my son. I don't know how much its affecting my life, but I'm sure it's affecting my health. I don't want my son to ever see his momma drunk and be old enough to understand she's different than normal. I would love to not feel like the weirdo though for not having a drink while everyone around me wonders why it whispers. I gave up drinking while pregnant, but am now realizing I probably dealt with postpartum anxiety. I think it might have officially pushed me over the edge to an alcoholic, and I'm still battling anxiety. I'm going to make a doctors appt immediately cause I know I will fail at sobriety is I can't get my anxiety under control. So, there it is. Written down, and statement for someone else to see. I'm not ready to tell anyone other than my husband just yet, but hopefully starting here will help me till I am.

Welcome to SR j2b!! I'm glad you are going to see you doctor, this is something I always recommend.

Also glad that you are realizing you deserve to get better for yourself and your son.

Hugs and prayers,

Hi and welcome.
Quite often our anxieties become far less burdensome when we sober up. HINT.

It’s strongly suggested when we see our doctor to be totally honest about our drinking, the amount etc.

Getting sober and staying sober are two different things and I chose AA for the second along with millions of others.
