Newcomer online but not to recovery

Hi All. Once again a find myself trying to get into recovery. Seems like a constant battle. Time that I faced up to the facts of what my drinking is costing me. This time it is my marriage. My wife wants me out and says that I can only see my boys when she can guarantee I am sober. Well, if that is not an incentive, I do not know what is. But I am still afraid that it is not incentive enough. I need this to work.

Welcome to the family. I hope our support can help you get sober for good.
I'd rather live in my car with my dogs than live in a castle without them.

Hey man - I'm in a similar boat. I've broken promises so many times about drinking that it's possible I might never get the trust back. Wishing you all the best.

Welcome to the forum. Alcoholism for sure destroys everything in its path, including marriages and families.
I think this is for sure one hell of a call to get yourself into rehab asap and a rock solid recovery path in place, but it sounds like there is some hesitation in your post that you would rather keep going down your destructive path, which I really hope isn't the case.

I'm glad you found us and that you are ready to work on your recovery!
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Hi and welcome tryingtogether

You'll find a lot of support and good ideas here.

Apart from joining here have you thought yet on what else you might do to stay sober?
