    :hello2:,

    hopestar,

    Good safe place you've found here. There's loads of advice and no-one judges you.

    Have a good read around. Have a look in the 'Newbies Nest' and just say hello.

    Good for you to have recognized that you have a problem now rather than later.

    Stay close. Ask questions no matter how dumb you think they might be, You should see some of mine.

    Wishing you all the luck in the world.

    Love Jackie xxx

    Welcome Hopestar!!

    I began by downloading the book "My Way Out" and read it from cover to cover. It helped me devise a plan to get back my life.

    There's no better time than right now

    Welcome hopestar!

    Know that feeling well of isolation and loneliness. I could be in the middle of a crowd and still feel alienated, isolated and alone. It's funny but the first ever AA meeting I went too was around your age (I'm now 39). Unfortunately I didn't stick around long enough and ended up in a worse state than ever, using not only alcohol but drugs I swore I would never use. That's how bad things got for me and I was left with no morals and my principles went right out the window.

    Nearly 2 years ago I decided, like you, that I didn't want my only daughter growing up knowing her father was still a drunk and a junkie. I had to change. I had tried to change in the past for everybody else BUT me and I failed miserably. This time was no exception and I couldn't manage longer than 4 months before relapsing.

    I am now just over 8 1/2 months clean and sober because I'm doing this for ME. I could only become the father I'd always wanted to be by doing it for ME and ME alone. When I started to do this all the other things just started falling into place (so as to speak). I became a decent father, brother, son and worthwhile member of society. I started to feel less isolated and paranoid and fearful. I found it easy to put down the drink but to learn to live without it was hard.

    Again welcome and hope you'll stick around and start posting a bit more about yourself.

    Love and Light
    Phil
