My name is Tom and I am an alcoholic.
Welcome to the fellowship, Anonymous A. Everyone who has any time in sobriety has been where you are right now. Like Marie B. wrote, it is not always easy, but is well worth the effort to get and stay sober.
Like Marie B. also wrote, it is highly recommended that you get to an AA meeting as soon as possible. If you don’t know where to find a meeting, let us know and we can help. Getting and staying sober on one’s own is difficult. I and many, many thousands before me have found that working with and being with other recovering alcoholics is the key to sobriety,
I found getting to an AA meeting, getting a sponsor, reading the Big Book and working the Steps of AA (with a sponsor) is the tried and true path to sobriety. It’s been said before, but keep going back (to your meeting) and coming back here. This works.
Please keep posting here, as well. We are willing and able to help. If there is anything you need, please let us know. Every alcoholic is recovering one day at a time. You are not alone. We all learn from those that have been through this before us. There is a wealth of of experience and recovery out here; more than ready to help. Tom G.
