I'm a fairly new mother (son is 11 months old), and my alcohol addiction has gotten way out of control. I'm mean when I drink, volatile. My husband and friends never know which 'sara' their going to get. I've tried to cut back, without success, after a few days. After talking it over with my husband, who finally agrees that I am, indeed, an alcoholic, I've decided to go cold turkey. I've been sober for three days. I don't even really WANT the alcohol, but don't like the thought of never having it again. It's scary. I asked my husband if he thought I'd ever be able to drink again, and he said, "probably not." So...well, do I really have a question? I don't know--should I go to AA? What should I do at this point to stick with it? I don't know what I'm doing...in all honestly, if I didn't have a child, I think I could benefit from an in-patient facility, but that's not an option. Any thoughts? Or just support; I could use some right about now. Thanks, y'all.
