Hello!!

What a great site! I have been looking through the threads and have seen some wonderful, inspiring posts, and lots that have really hit a raw nerve within me! They really did hit home just what a mess I had gotten myself into, without even realising how far gone I was.

I decided 6 days ago to stop drinking alcohol after a very dangerous episode, I shall post about "that" at a later date, I just wanted to say I am so glad that I have found this site, I shall be here often!

Welcome.
It’s great to recognize a problem as when we do we can work on it as opposed to deny there is one.

There is a lot of wisdom on this site and often if it’s too sensitive it is what we need to work on for sobriety to be more through.

BE WELL

Great to meet you freeliving.

At the end of my drinking career, every time it was in my system it led to danger & uncertainty. I was reckless and all over the place emotionally - nothing fun about it anymore. I wish I hadn't waited so long to see the light & admit I had no control. Hope to hear more from you - very happy you found us.
