Sanity at last?

Beginning day 2 again but finally realised I cant do this on my own. Trying to stop drinking and instantly make a plan for me was a bit overwhelming, too much brain fog. I have read the plan over and over to start to get it embedded, more importantly I have registered with our local alcohol dependency unit for help, whilst there is a waiting list I feel better that I have at last accepted that I cant do this on my own and sought help.

My drinking has in the main has been a solitary affair and so have my attempts to get sober, I suppose this is my way of "coming out" re my drinking, accepting the reality of it and being prepared to confront it with someone else.

Good for you Grok, it is sometimes so hard to reach out for help, but I bet you will be glad you did.

I tried on my own more times than I can count. When I tried AA I found the wisdom and support I needed

I tried for four years after relapsing to get sober again on my own, with no lasting success.
I finally admitted defeat and accepted that AA was my answer just like it had been the first time around. I am so relieved I finally did that.
Whatever path you find that works for you, welcome back.
