Find an AA meeting to go to today, and just sit and listen. If anything at all resonates, find the next meeting that you can go to. If you do that it might not be something that you connect with, and you'll drink again. If you don't go, you'll drink again even sooner.

Thank you for the kind words and support ! It was a Sober Saturday and today I’m feeling fine ! I drank two days this week and today I have no desire to drink.

I'm just trying to save him a little bit of misery, but I suppose that you and I both know that everybody needs to travel their own path, and have their own experience. Frothy emotional appeal and what not.

I met my good friend Bill Wilson 10 years ago next month, and absolutely cannot stay sober when I'm left to my own devices.

Don’t beat yourself up. You have recognized you want to change your behavior because it’s not making you happy and that’s a bug step. Agree about checking out a meeting. If AA isn’t your vibe, Tempest (now part or Monument) is something that has worked for me. It’s a monthly fee, but lots of moderated zoom meetings and a more “meet you where you are” approach. Everyone has a different path, so just try some things out. Sending you love and support.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired? I was too, and I tried everything I could think of to avoid the consequences of drinking, whether they be a hangover or worse. In the end, I learned (through AA), that it’s the first drink that get me drunk.

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who shares in this group. It truly helps me stay sober. I am approaching 12 months sober but have been struggling lately. While I have not relapsed, I’ve been close. Normally, before I get out of bed, I write down my reason to stat sober for the day, but lately the reasons have been lousy at best. But reading about everyone’s struggles and successes has helped get me through this past month. So thank you all for the inspiration to keep going strong!

Stopped drinking a year ago after a particularly rough period. Lately I’ve been having thoughts and considerations around starting again. I think my friend circle has changed a lot so I wouldn’t fall into that crazy party lifestyle. Has anyone stopped then started again successfully? I never drunk THAT much but it was impacting my life (sending stupid messages I shouldn’t have been sending) and getting blackout occasionally. I do think it was having a negative impact on my life

It's so bad now that it's thrown me into a deep, suicidal depression. I feel like I have no control and I don't want this to control me. Do meetings help?
