Guess Whos Back, Back Again?

Finally after asking for help from August I got a Community Hospital Alcohol Detox last week and am 9 days sober...

This is after drinking 2-3 bottles of wine a night for 18 months...

Ive now been to 2 AA meetings, 2 Addaction meetings; a private counselling session already this week and I intend reaching out as much as possible...

Thank God for me reaching this point...

Best of luck to all still trying...

Keep at it! For me, once I got past the insurmountable 'wall' that got knocked down with a few AA meetings(court ordered) and constant posting/reading on here, I was able to get past the 'false thinking'. It's hard work at first,but gets easier with minutes/days/months DOC free.

Owning my stuff/reality is what set me free.

We're glad you're here with us, FF.

I'm especially glad that you're heading out to a meeting.

They, and the 12 steps, have certainly helped me get and stay sober when nothing else would.
