Hello Kimberlee P –
I saw your post and was very grateful to be here to help in any way I can. I have been in recovery for a while now and I remember the starting point where I didn’t know where to turn or who to ask for help. I’m glad you came on here to post this it’s an amazing site to get help from thousands of other alcoholics/addicts around the world. I have gotten to meet a ton of people on this site to help me with every day issues that I have in recovery. If you can make it there will be an online meeting at 8 pm CDT time tonight on the site. Just click on “online meetings” and it’s the one this evening. It’s OPEN Topic (meaning any topic you need to talk about i.e. getting into recovery). Don’t be scared to talk about trying to get sober it’s not easy and it took amazing courage to take the first step to get help. You can also friend me on this site, Heidi Q. I can talk to you on your wall or in messages and see if there is any experience, strength and hope that I can share with you. I hope this message finds you well and I hope you can come to the meeting tonight OR respond to this post!
