Hi, I am new to this site but not new to drinking. I have tried and failed many time to stop drinking but have been doing it for all the wrong reasons. I am ready to do it for me, because I know that it has to be for myself to make it work. I am a very functioning alcoholic (I just said it for the first time) but I am tired of this road. I have such a blessed life and I do not want to screw it up because I have an addiction I will not let myself overcome. I know it is in me to stop and I am going at it full force this time. I am wanting to attend an AA meeting tonight but I am so nervous about it. I want to tell my husband but I am so scared to do that. Any help or suggestions? I know the first step is the hardest, and I just need to do it. Thank you for reading.
