:thanks – -I’ve had a few false starts, thought I could handle it all (bourbon is my curse) but have been backsliding and hiding it for a few months now. I don’t want to loose the friends that I have. they don’t come close to putting down the amount of liquor that I do. Do I have to say goodbye to them, my brothers as well?? I’m torn and want to hear from folks that have moved past this stage, how do you manage it?February 7, 2017 at 9:08 pm #4863777
I had to change my people, places, and things in order to get and stay sober.
I thought this was going to be very hard, but it was actually fairly easy. It turned out, most of the drinking/drugging crowd I ran with…well, they really weren’t that interested in me once I stopped drinking/drugging.
My true friends, they not only stayed with me, but they support me 100%.
I also had to change who I was or the same me will drink again…and again, and again.
I would concentrate more on yourself than on other people. At least for now.

Do you think you’re an alcoholic? That’s usually the best place to start.
We can and do recover. You can be living proof.

thanks for getting back to me. do I think?? hell I know I am. I’ve tried 3x to kick this, well I should say I tried to control it 3x not really kick it. I am in full acceptance that I cannot maintain balance with alcohol in or around me. I know I can’t continue drinking, now I am trying to figure out how to do that, what do I replace this with, what will I do when the urge hits me. I know there are answers, I know I will find them, I just have no idea how I am going to do this…. weird feeling.
