I am really finding it difficult to go beyond 1st step. I have admitted and accepted that I am alcoholic. I have no power on alcohol.
I remained sober for 2 days and relapsed after 2 days . My current drinking amount is around 2 to 3 glass of wine with dinner but I have to really struggle to keep it to this level. As I have abused alcohol to level of half a bottle of whisky, every night for 7 years , even with, 2 -3 glasses of wine , I still suffer from insomnia and very intense nightmares and hallucination . I wake up at around 3 am startled by scary nightmares or hallucinations that someone is going to strangle me.
I request for On-line or remote sponsor who is kind enough to volunteer and can guide me through these steps and help me through PM . I know, it is asking for too much but in the geography I leave, I am not able to and do not have courage to go to local AA meetings. I even do not know whether AA meetings happen in my area and I had no courage to enquire about it.
Looking forward to help.

That is why I started drinking. I would wake up at night with horrible nightmares that would leave me sweating, shaking, and questioning reality. When I drink/drank, I slept like a baby. Even taking three or four benadryl would not stop the nightmares. I just joined here and honestly, have never really tried to quit before. I had at least 6 drinks per night and now I have a pain where my liver is right under my right rib-cage and a tightness in my chest. I’m only 30 but that is enough to scare the hell out of me.
