I知 decided for treatment

Hello,
At the end of September, after 15 months of sobriety, I relapsed. During November I drank heavily. On the 2nd of December, while severely drunk, I collapsed on the sidewalk, broke my nose and got several bruises. Fortunately two passsers-by called an ambulance and that night I got detox in hospital.
The following day, I decided Im going for treatment.
Now I am at the end of the withdrawal period (the most difficult I致e ever had) and have an appointment fixed with a doctor and a therapist.
However, I need psychological support from the support groups and decided to join this forum.

Welcome. That's quite a story, and quite the motivation to get sober for good. Sorry you had to go through that - but glad you have come out the other side. There is lots of help here.
Ps I have relapsed twice. This is my third attempt. So you're not alone.

Beginning with family stepping in to place me
into the hands of those capable of teaching me
about my alcohol addiction and a program of
recovery to incorporate in all my affairs, my
journey living addiction free began on August
11, 1990.

Those first 28 days in rehab allowed the seed
of hope that if others before me could and would
remain sober and incorporating the tools
and knowledge of an effective program continuously,
then so could and would I.

With continuous sobriety for the past 27 yrs, I
remain teachable to grow and mature into the
best person I can possibly be today. I'm not
perfect nor wish to be, but I do strive to live
with purpose and meaning in my daily life.

Admitting I am an alcoholic then accepting
that alcohol will never ever work for me and
believing that I can live a sober life clearing
away the wreckage of the past and learning
each day to build a strong solid foundation
with tools and knowledge of my addiction and
incorporating an effective program of recovery
in my everyday life, then I could and would
remain sober each day moving forward, then
so can you.

We never have to go thru anything in life
alone or by ourselves because the fellowship
of recovery will always be there to help you
with every step you take to achieve health,
happiness and many more wonderful gifts
to cherish and never take for granted along
the way.
