    Your welcome! One hour and a half away for the closest AA meeting! How lucky we are that have them so close to us.

    Ok.

    Do you have a book? The book Alcoholics Anonymous?

    Here is a link to read it online…

    Big Book Online Fourth Edition

    and here is one where you can listen …

    Big Book Audio MP3

    You can call the AA hotline, and have some sober members call you back…

    Who knows…there may be some sober women right in your town!!!

    Ask them at the hotline to have someone call you back, and then trust a little, and ask for help, ask for contact from some sober women near you.

    Wouldn’t that be good, if there was someone that leads a sober lifestyle that could be your new friend!

    We must get the ball rolling! Make it happen so to speak. Be careful who you surround yourself with, as you will need support as I have found to be so true.

    You know it need only be as lonely of an endeavor as you let it. I have a feeling that if you put some energy into jumping into your recovery, that the right people will be in your path soon.

    I think it will be very helpful for you to share your excitement with people that have shared the same experience with having a problem with drinking and wishing to change, then others.

    It’s not that you cannot tell anyone what is going on, like you have done…but realize that if they are not on the same path as you…you may not hear from them what you would hear from someone that is.

    Lucky you, I have to drive 6 hours round trip to Dusseldorf for an English meeting.

    You drank when you didn’t want to and though it was a bad idea and you felt bad for doing it because of the nature of alcoholism. If this site was going to be enough for you, it would have been enough, and we’d not be talking now.

    You do see that since you now don’t want to drink that is no better answer than when you didn’t want to drink before and drank, right? Time to add something effective to the mix.

    For the great advice. I already downloaded the BB, thanks I need it. I feel so good today, like I am a new person…which I am, so to speak. My mind set is different this time. I was talking to my Husband about this last night and he is going to have a co workers wife call me. She has been sober for almost two years. I am also going to call the AA hotline to see if their is someone around here, that would be wonderful to have someone close and SOBER too!! I am will be cautious who I surround myself with. My Daughters birthday is Sunday and different friends wanted to come over and celebrate. I’ve been telling them that we are not having the BIG tado this year. Last year, I don’t remember going to bed on her birthday…that is not going to happen again. I want my DD to grow up looking up to me not, embrassed or, pity. She’s my motivation!!! Thank you again! I love this site where I can speak to others like me.:grouphug:
