Hi, I'm new here


I found this forum awhile ago, but never signed up. I have been just a reader. I decided it was time to actively get help. I'm a pretty withdrawn person and don't express myself well, so I'm not sure how well this is going to work for me. I wanted to introduce myself to the forum.

Hello and welcome to you. Post as much or as little as you like. Some of us like to write and express a lot and others prefer to read and only occasionally post responses or posts of their own. Fortunately there is room for everyone and all styles here. That said, I do think reaching out for support and offering support when you feel you can is really helpful. We are here anytime.

Mint,

I empathize and relate. I am not a great communicator.

If you want to stop being a drunk, you have half the battle won already.

This place saved my sorry alky self. The information available is priceless.

Imo...Posting is good for the soul.

I'm a binge drinker, happy drunk 99% of the time. I managed to drink myself into a state of mental and physical break down. When I quit, I started to feel mentally out of it, Google this, for SR.

SR save me.

What is your drinking story?

Thanks.

Hi Mint,
The main goal for all of us here is to become and stay sober; becoming the next Hemingway is only a distant second, lol! Thanks for posting!

Welcome! I'm glad you posted and there's no need to say more than you are comfortable with. You will always find lots of support here.

Great to meet you, Mint. I was instantly calmer when I began to post here. Knowing everyone understood helped me find the courage to change my life. I knew I was no longer alone. Welcome!
