Biting the bullet

Hello again,

So I have decided that tonight is the night. I am going to my first meeting. I haven't had a drink in 5 days now. Which to be fair isn't unusual but it's the weekend now and my weakest time. You know the feeling, I've worked hard this week and deserve it and all that b******t. I've started reading the big book and there's a lot in there that makes lot of sense.

All i know for sure is that I will never drink again. I also know that I can't do it on own. I have grown up with booze, everyone around me drinks to excess. So if I'm to get through this I need to surround myself with people that no longer do but who understand what I have been through and am going through.

Thanks for listening.

MyNightmare

I went to my first AA meeting today and it was the best thing I could ever have done. You are not alone and the support was amazing

I have 2 hours to the meeting and my stomach is churning like mad!

Scared isn't the word.

I went to a few different meetings and only listened, then found a group I liked and stick to it on a weekly basis. It's just people getting together meeting for a common goal. It takes strength to admit you need/want to go and I applaud you for it. I also grew up around booze and have a lot of family who drink pretty heavily. Start coming up with a game plan now for those situations that may come up where alcohol is tempting. Don't wait until they happen.
