Alcoholism Support Group

Alcoholism is the continued consumption of alcoholic beverages, even when it is negatively affecting your health, work, relationships and life. If you think alcohol is causing you to lose control, it's time to seek help. Our group is a safe place to vent, check in, get back up if you fall, and reach sobriety.

    Started going to AA

    I tried to quit alone and couldn't do it. I went to AA last week and today, and I plan on going as much as I can... hopefully daily. I am pretty shy and reserved, so the meetings are tough for me. I still haven't spoken or tried to find a temporary sponsor. I sit in the back alone, but I'm trying to keep an open mind and take everything in.  My boyfriend says I should get a sponsor, but I...

Cheese and Fing crackers jus I know a drink won't solve anything. It...

  • I am going to use some notes on the first step to pass along the message of a way to recover.  The focus is on the positive powerlessness we have as alcoholics.  Ironically, through utter defeat we find victory over an addiction to alcohol.  Once we give up, a happy and purposeful life can then be built and experienced.  Some say the defeat in total terms of living as well as drinking is the...
  • This may be a stupid thing to say but I literally cannot understand why I can't just stop drinking. When I try I usually only get through a week. My longest soberiety has been 30 days using a sober phone app. Now I'm back to daily drinking. I know I use it to cope with stress since I'm a divorced Mother of 3 boys but it only makes me feel hungover, depressed and like a loser for not being able...

    I know it's not sobriety but it's been two weeks since my husband stopped drinking hard liquor and I can already see a difference in his behavior. Somethings have changed that I didn't even realize that alcohol was playing a role in. I made an appointment with a drug and alcohol counselor after his last alcohol induced meltdown. I almost canceled because things are so much better but I didn't,...

    Hi - my story :(

    Hi, I'm new to this. I'm just desperate for people to talk to. My partner is an alcoholic. He knows he is and has tried all the usual. He hates AA and currently he claims he's doing a hard reduction type approach he says he can never quit, it's part of who he is. He guilt me into supporting him. Basically he drinks for 2/3 days then stops for a day and claims he's got a handle in it because he...
