starting over

I guess I wasn't ready a couple years ago, but I had my last drink Friday. I need to do this for me. I think my addiction is emotional vice physical but that doesn't make it less destructive. I tried moderation...that's a joke and short lived.

I've looked at the rationalizations, timing, and excuses. In the end, I have to take the blame. Not sure why this time is different, but I think I'm scared, scared I might not be able to stop.

Thank you

wonderful. I love the "I had my last drink Friday" line..... so much more powerful than "I HAVE to stop"....

keep it up. You've got this.

I promise sobriety will be infinitely more rewarding than drinking.

It was nice reading your post. I said the same thing almost 2 years ago...and have had my life take a wonderful new direction. I've never been happier. Seeing your post and how you expressed the emotional side of it reminds me that I made the right decision. I'm very happy for you and your new path. ❤️❤️
