Learning my way

Today I sat is a bar having some drinks and didn't make it to work! I have come to realize that I'm an addict. Laying next to my daughter while she sleeps brings tears to my eyes. I could even take her to do anything because I was too hungover. I'm scared. She leaves for the summer, what will I do? I look at street people and can relate, they probably never thought they would be where they are. I need help. This is my first step. I pray I will succeed.

Welcome to SR Northof60

I moved your thread here for more response.

This is a great bunch of people.

Not sure if you were looking for the chat room or not, but you'll find the chat room entrance at the top right hand corner of the page

Hi Northof60 you'll find many of us finding our way later in life. There's so much more than drinking and being hungover. You'll find lots of support and find some friends too.

towards the end of my drinking I looked at street people and I thought you know, that might be ok. I can beg to make money for a bottle a day then none of it would matter.

I'm 14 months sober now and I am very, very glad I hung on. it gets better, it can for you too.
