Every night make a list of things to do to keep you busy the next day, nothing fancy, just things that take time. Be patient, it takes time to start feeling "better", don't fall into the trap of I don't really feel that much better than when I was drinking, so why not drink. It will get better, much better. Go to as many AA meeting as you can fit in, they are never wasted time. Good luck on your journey!!!!!!!

You can do it, do stuff that is rewarding.
Also keeping positive company around you is a plus,
No one likes a debby downer right.
Best of luck to you, 12 years sober here.
I did it so anyone can do it.

Stick with it. Be prepared to change a lot of old habits. Probably Friends too. Start with the 12 steps. In order 1 thru 12. Don't rush it. Don't be too quick to pick a sponsor either. Listen Listen and Listen. I've never learned anything listening to myself talk. Find a meeting you like and make a commitment to it. It won't happen as fast as you'd like. You will need to learn how to deal with the old feelings Sober. Been sober since June of 1987 myself. A couple suggestions from an alcoholic named Mark. Best wishes.

Oh, and find a non-alcoholic drink that you like and keep lots of it around all the time. Helps with the physical habit of always having something to drink in your hand. Mine was unsweet tea. I probably went through a gallon and a half a day for a few weeks. Really helped me a bunch.

I donít know how bad you were, but me, I was drinking at least an 18 pack a day, starting at 4am on the drive to work. By the time I got to the shop at 5 Iíd be 4-5 beers in. Every day, I would wake up and first thing I would do is finish the half a beer left on my night stand from the night before. So if I can make it to a year, Iím pretty sure anyone can if they want it bad enough. It took getting fired from two jobs in less than a week and my wife nearly leaving me to get it through my thick skull that it was a problem. I was a good drunk. So good that my wife had no idea that I was drinking every minute of every day for months.

If I can do it, so can you. This token is from four years ago. The one I get this time next year will have three X's on it.

I will keep you in my prayers . I seen three close family members go to an early grave due to alcohol addiction Like someone mention earlier many see it as a character flaw .Not geting help if you ned it would or could be a characterr flaw .Doing the right thing for your self and you friends and family willl the best thong you ever do with the rest of your life .You can't change the rest of your life in one day . But you can decide how to make each day ome that is alchol free . Best wishes and even if you stumble along the way keep trying to accompish your goal each day
