New comer!

I'm trying a new approach and trying something out of my elements. I've tried drinking many times but always go back, the longest I've made it was 2 years but I always go back to self medicating. I've tried 3 times on my own and know I'm reaching out and trying others for help. Monday I'm going to try to enter the doors of my first AA meeting and looking for support. This is me 100% trying and failure is not a option anymore, it's destroyed my marriage, my wife left me Thursday with my kids and more then likely for good. No matter what I need to get better and better myself and make sure I'm there for my kids both physically and mentally!

Welcome!

I'm glad you found us and that you are ready to stop drinking.

Do this for yourself to be the best person you can be and the best Dad you can be.

Hi Bk! We're so glad you found us. This is the best place for encouragement - you never have to feel alone anymore.

I had 3 yrs. once & decided I could control myself if I had a few once in a while. But there's never, ever 'a few'. One drink leads to 10 - one night of drinking leads to months, even years, of reckless & dangerous behavior. We know this now. You can do it, Bk.
