And for a change I'm gonna really try and stick to it.
Sorry to hear that lol
Take ginscpy with you.
Good for you and your liver.
And, you don't have to do it alone. AA is out there. They have a pretty high success rate, compared to other methods, for helping folks who have a desire to stop drinking.
Good luck. Are you getting any professional help to do it? People almost never succeed when they attempt it alone.
AA, as someone suggested. Or a doctor. Or a church. Or a combination thereof.
If you are given medication to help, be careful. Antidepressants are shots in the dark. A doctor will give you one and then wait to see what happens. Sometimes they work, sometimes they do nothing, and sometimes they make you worse.
Whatever the case, don't try to quit drinking on your own. Get help.
And let us know how you are doing.
"One day at a time", as they say. Don't think about the long term. Just think about not drinking today.
She didnt say she was an alcoholic. Some people feel guilty for getting drunk a couple times a month
She doesn't have to be an "alcoholic" to go to AA. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
The AA Preamble
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problemand help other to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination or politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
Whatever works for you, as long as you don't infringe on others, is okay by me. I wish you good luck.
For purposes of discussion however, why not simply moderate your alcohol intake? There is not only nothing wrong with a "few" drinks, it's good for your heart. Wine and beer, in moderation, are good for you. That's my only thought but if you can't manage to stop after a drink or two, I sincerely wish you luck in stopping altogether.
