I joined last weekend after what hopefully was my Rock Bottom. I’ve successfully made it to day 6, beginning today. It hasnt been too bad so far. No severe cravings, some strange feelings of remorse, rather that I will miss some of the former social situations. I’ve sort of tried to just brush them off as doable again, just without alcohol one day.
I saw the Counseling services at my university, and apparently AA does meet on my campus. The Psychology intern I saw is compiling a list of options for me and different available resources.
My biggest concern is taking this step towards a lifelong change, and not relapsing sometime down the road. In my head, I know that I can never return to drinking without going down this road again.
