I'm 40 years old and have a good life and husband. I've been drinking heavily for over 10 years. Not always daily but sometimes. My drinking has really escalated in the past year with the start of a new stressful job. I recently admitted to myself that I need to quit altogether, and that cutting down or moderation will not work for me. I've tried unsuccessfully to quit a few times on my own and have now realized I need help. One step is to join this community and share with others. Good luck to us all.
Good morning lovely people. Four years sober today! I’m still 100 percent happy to have made the decision to stop drinking. Life is really full on right now but it’s so much easier to navigate with a clear head and some self awareness. I’ve taken the day off and have a few self-care things planned. Today I’m just going to try to Be where I am and appreciate my life. Thank you to all the outstanding people here who have offered kindness and support. This place is truly special. Love and hugs!
