Re: Can't stop drinking

I went to the one f2f meeting that is held here each week tonight. I was the only girl amonst 4 guys. They gave me their numbers since there really are no women around here. I've talked to a lot of my old eAA chat friends, luckily I had them as friends on facebook. I've found some online meetings an...

Re: Can't stop drinking

I tried calling the local hotline. It connected me with a woman who is almost an our away. It's oretty rural here. I tried calling her but got her voicemail. I ended up drinking and the people who were trying to help stopped. I'm a hopeless alcoholic.

I started drinking again. I reached out for help and someone kind from e-AA who barely knew me but we were face...

Hi guys! Still here and working on it. Been sober now 44 days. Thanks everyone for their shares and help. Still not totally comfortable but guess it will come eventually.

I know there is no other way to stay sober so I will continue to go and work on the steps with my sponsor. But there must be something wrong with me as i...
