    Wish me luck

    I'm a regular poster with a new name for this. After a lot of praying and talking it's time to admit I'm an alcoholic. For the past 15 years my life has revolved around alcohol. I need to stop before I hit rock bottom.

    As of Saturday I've had my last drink. I must succeed. I will succeed.

    Wish me luck.

    It is better to not drink at all than drink too much. Credit to you for realizing this before you're in too deep. Best of luck and hopefully your friends and family will keep you busy/distracted so you don't have to do this alone.

    Re: Wish me luck

    The first step, and often times most difficult one, is getting to the point where you admit it. That's not easy. Best of luck the rest of the way.

    Best of luck to you.

    One word of advice, do not fall into the trap of "I can try just one" after about 6 months. We former smokers fooled ourselves with that one many times. I can promise it will work the same with alcohol.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    You've taken a very difficult and important step already by admitting your problem. YOU CAN DO THIS.
