Hi,
I'm new to this site. A friend of mine overseas suggested this. Soooo, here I am. Been struggling with alcohol all my life and want to continue my growth and knowledge of how and why I do the things I do. I guess I'll just start with that. Meetings are ok. However anxiety and work hours can play a part in my avoidance.

Welcome to SR, Matti; glad that your friend told you about us.

Have a look around the site, giving special attention to the Stickies at the top of each forum; there is a lot of good information on them.
