Ready to be human again


I spent a year in state ran facility for drug use. All good on that but turned to alcohol. It's the worse thing I've ever dealt with. Just need to quit. It's been bad for 6 years now. Any advice will be much appreciated

Welcome to SR, Waterdog - very glad that you joined us.

SR is a great place for support, encouragement and understanding.

Following a Plan for sobriety has been so successful for many of us.

I'll post a link to a great SR thread on that topic in a minute.

It's so good to have you with us, Waterdog. We all understand what you're going through - the way normal drinkers can't. Talking things over here helped me stop drinking after 30 yrs. I'm sure you'll be able to get free of it - you have our support & friendship. Welcome.
