It's time

Hi I am new to the site! I thought maybe signing up and signing in daily now that I admit I have a problem will help me to stay focused and stay accountable. Today is my first day with out the hot sauce. I kept telling myself I will start tomorrow or no I can't be an alcoholic because I only drink once a week which then changed to a couple of times a week and here we are now where it was almost every day. I need to learn how to not have it be part of my day and have wine be what relaxes me! I don't know where the old me went but if I had told my old self I would be where I am now I would have never believed myself. How did I let it get this far when I have so much to be thankful for! Well today I was on my way to the gas station on the way home and told myself I will just have two and I could have probably stopped at two but I would have thought about getting one more. I would have made myself go to sleep and woke up again tomorrow to tell myself it is okay! You can have two. NO! Enough! I am done having any and I want to stop wanting this crap! Hello all I am here to stay and I know it will be a struggle but I could use any support I can get
Thanks for reading!!

Welcome! This is a great place to start. There's so much useful information here and lots of support too... Check out the 'sticky' threads at the top of the Newcomer's section.. lots of great threads about what to expect and what others did to stay sober..

Glad you came here instead of drinking. There are some good people here. I am 8 days sober today. I have tried to read everything on this site and it keeps me busy and reminds me I am not alone. Start reading and you won't want to drink.

Welcome to the family. You can have a better life when you put the bottle down. I did, over five years ago, and am now happier than I've been in a long time.
