I have been off alcohol for 8 days, and will be going to AA. I am just not looking forward to the withdrawals, but have the support of my wife and two girls. Fortunately, I can stay home from work for the next 10 days.
You're at the right place for support.. but you KNOW whatcha GOTTA DO... and it sounds like you're doin' it! Good job on Flushing... Now ya just gotta stay away from the alcohol... Please don't make the transition from one addiction to another... (i.e. pills / alcohol)
Get yourself into some sort of AA/NA for support and AFTERCARE.....(that's important)
You can do this! I have faith in YOU!
Keep posting cuz there are alot of people out here that care and will help you in any way that they can.. myself included...
Lots of Love and Prayers your way!
