    :sly: Well, like the title says, I am truly grateful to be here.. I believe I can overcome my alcoholism… I’m only 24, and already have hit a big snag in my life, but I know with each day passing I will become stronger mentally and go on with my life as normal as I can. Almost all of my friends drink, my father is an alcoholic and I just want to be the opposite.. I’m ready for a life long change.. because with alcohol, I’m emotional, upset, angry and to top it off, I lost a great girl in my life..but I must keep my head up and not let it take over.. :Wburn

    Welcome to 12 Step National Meetings dreaming……. for this old alcoholic I found that for me simply stopping drinking was easy, staying stopped was the hard part.

    I spent 10 years stopping drinking and changing absolutely nothing about myself except not drinking…… well I have found that when in the past I just stopped drinking and did not change anything that I was still a drunk, I was simply a drunk that was not drinking…… well drunks drink and as a result I always went back to drinking thinking it will be better this time! It never was, it was always worse.

    After 40 years of drinking, 10 years spent trying to stop I found a way to stay stopped, I changed me!

    I quit drinking and started to work on myself as a person, I started to change and once I had changed enough I was no longer a drunk that did not drink, I was a far better person, I was no longer a drunk and as a result I have not found a single reason to have a drink or even want one in 360 days.

    Keep an open mind and remain willing to change, keep working it one day at a time, if you only live in today and not drink just today you will do okay.

    Welcome, dreaming!!

    There is a lot of wisdom here on these boards. Keep an open mind. I had to be willing to go to any length to stay sober….and I’m so glad I did. Life is completely different now – better than I ever could have expected. There are still bumps in the road – some bigger than others – but now I know how to life life on life’s terms and come out on the other side stronger and still sober. You can too 🙂

    Keep reading and keep sharing. We are glad you are here 🙂

    Good deal dreaming, keep in mind that the best way ever found to stay sober is done one day at a time. If I have the urge to drink, which I have not for about 9 months I simply told myself “Not today, I will drink to morrow if I want to.”
