I noticed part of your story on a thread in Alcoholism…and appreciate you have shared a bit more here. ….again…welcome…:wavey:
thank you for your military service…All gave some…some gave all….:yup:
When my drinking turned me into a woman I detested…..depressed and empty ..I re connected to God and AA.
By daily living the Steps…and keeping God and AA in my life…I finally stopped drinking and recovered.
This can be true for you as well…and I sure hope it will be….:hug:June 1, 2017 at 12:03 pm #4952178

It may not feel like it right now, but this is a perfect place to start taking AA’s 12 Steps and recover from alcoholism. I was in a very similar position, losing everything, freaking out. I’d already lost the wife, family, house, my job was calling me about why I hadn’t shown up, I ad pending sentencing for DUI # whatever, already been through rehab and treatment.
And there I was, drunk and scared and ashamed and without hope. Because I knew, I just knew, that this was my sad wasted life, and I couldn’t do a damn thing about it.
So I had nothing to lose by picking up the phone, calling a guy in AA who had a spiritual awakening as the result of the Steps, and asking for help.
Within a couple months, I had taken the Steps and was helping other guys do the same. My life had turned upside down and everything had changed. Nothing short of a miracle.June 1, 2017 at 6:30 pm #4952187
I’m day one sober. (I sipped some beer yesterday to fight the withdrawal symptoms)
Last nights sleep sucked, night sweets, dry mouth, felt bloated and awful. I had a few hallucinations when I woke up a couple times in the night… BUT, after waking up feeling like a zombie this morning….. my mind is coming around.
The fog is starting to lift and I’m just tired and have a worn out feeling. I have to do this, I can make it.
Today I found out that I was pretty much headed for getting separated for my admission for drinking after rehab. Later in the day though I was interrogated by my chief because he though I went to the hospital and not an AA meeting after my panic attacks. Doing this may have just saved my ass, there’s no documentation on my admission, just my verbal admission. He seemed angry he has no proof to kick me out……… < —-wtf????
We’ll see how it plays out, but I’m planning for the worst case scenario.
Needless to say, I’m doing better, and am going to hit a meeting up tonight if I don’t pass out from exhaustion.
