Exclamation Battlling alcohol

Hi guys
I feel very bad today. doing withiut the demon drink is hard it's now 9 weeks. However I feel quite sortof stressy a lot of the time. I am still going to A.A once a week and have started the steps. I'm a bit perplexed by step 3 .Iif you have done it, can you pls give me some insight. I am really trying to get off the alcohol this time but every Friday llike clockwork I desperately want a drink.

Well, just had to commmunicate that to someone. Hope you are all improving a bit because any addictions is a terrible thing!

Re: Battlling alcohol


Congrats on 9 weeks

It will get better,as time passes by.

Things get real,then surreal and then really surreal.

Hope for the best but prepare yourself also for the unforseen.

With respect to The Steps.........there's no need to rush them.Some will require more time and/or effort than others.

Keep up the good work and remember that you have plenty of concerned people,right here who are in your corner.
When in doubt, post it out.

Re: Battlling alcohol

Hi Phoenix and everyone else

Alcohol is like having an awful virus. The urge to drink just crops up when you often least expect it etc. Life is a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I don't like the fact that there is so many holidays where I live because it's difficult to occupy myself on a 4 day weekend so to speak and i still avoid anywhere there is the dreaded booze.Just keeping myself safe. The first party is the 14th Nov and I'm a bit nervous already but I have to go out sometime!!They'll be really ofended if I don't go and I'l be 12/13 weeks sober then (I know day by day)Need to try!
Have to say I feel very well physically which is something. Still taking the steps slowly. Anyway I hope all is well with youse!!
