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.

    I drank last night..

    I drank last night. I don't even know what in the world made me go buy it. The horror of waking up this morning knowing that I have done it again. Possibly losing the support now of my sister who I fought with last night. It makes me sick. It's hard to keep forgiving myself.

    Brand new and scared to death

    Hello all... i just joined this group today.  It's my first attempt at seeking help.  I HAVE to stop drinking but I don't know if I'm "there" yet.  I know everyone has their own "bottom" but I don't know if I've hit mine yet.  I also don't want to wait to hit mine.  I am a functioning alcoholic but it's starting to get me depressed.  Every morning I struggle to get out of bed because I'm...

  • I had over five months sober and then I had a few slips.  Now I'm afraid I'm in full-blown relapse.  It's so scary.  I feel like I can't get off of this miserable merry-go-round for even one day.  This past time I got and stayed sober without meetings.  I went to a few meetings after month four.   Now I'm living in a place where the closest meeting is over an hour away taking a bus and two...

    I need help

    I need to stop drinking. I haven't been able to and I have been trying. Multiple attempts and every time I end up going on some major binge. It's so embarrassing and I know I can't drink anymore but I haven't been able to stop. All I can do is try again but I am feeling so discouraged at this point. I am going to lose everything in my life and the most important things to me.. My kids. Somebody...

    How does this work?

    I've been trying to figure this out and I see there is someone online but I cannot find you.  I was diagnosed with breast cancer yesterday.  I had stopped drinking 2 weeks ago because of my husband's new health problem.  I know that alcohol can feed breast cancer, but tonight i am on my 3rd glass of wine.  Help me.
