Hello and welcome. You've found a great place for support.
I drank alcoholically for thirty years. And I was a bad drunk, recovery is possible.
It's been almost seven years since I've had a drink.
Glad to have you here, and remember, you never have to drink again.

Welcome, Macro. You're among friends who understand and care.

Like Ghostlight, I drank 30 yrs, so I know what you're going through. The first holiday season was challenging, but stick around and stay close. Posting & reading here will help with the anxiety you're feeling. You're never alone.

Congratulations on your 21 days free of it - that's wonderful.

Way to go, Macro. I too drank for 25 before calling it quits. Best move I ever made, and you will probably agree!
