Hi there! I've struggled with drinking on and off. Although I don't consider myself an alcoholic anymore (not sure I ever was) I found AA to be a GREAT resource in the first 6 months of being sober.
I now take 6 months off from drinking every year. I no longer binge drink. I am happier, healthier and like myself more. AA is a great way to start changing your life.
I suggest looking for an all women's group. Sometimes it is nice to just talk to other women. One day at a time. Good luck!
