just remember that you are doing this for your health to try and keep from feeling deprived. take it one day at a time, and a big thing that helps me when I am trying to quit anything is remembering nothing is forever. Try and exercise or free write your feelings and emotions

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!

Go see a psychiatrist to make sure there are no other factors. I have bipolar, so meds really helped my situation. Go to AA today. Just sit and listen at first. This is so important. Stay positive and good luck.
