I would appreciate hearing your story. And 11 months in a rehab facility seems like a long time. I wonder what types of out patient rehab facilities or help there is? And do I really need it. The counselor I spoke with is suggesting in person AA meetings as well as this site. She tells me hat although right now I haven’t incurred any serious consequences like losing my job or a DWI, I headed that direction. And that I need to stop now before it gets that far. If you want to attend the meeting this Wed evening I will be in attendance and would appreciate hearing your story if you want to share. If not I understand.
