Well, I now am on my 12th day of sobriety. I have tried it many times before, gone to AA meetings, tried going to church, taken prescription drugs to stop, had family make threats, had the law looking down at me and much more. I wanted to stop all those times, but in the back of my mind I believe that I could still drink. When I had my last drunk and woke up the next day I just did not want it anymore, but I FINALLY new I couldn't do it alone. I called my sponsor and thank God, my higher power, that she "suggested" to me that I get on my knees and ask for help and I did what was suggested. I have been asking everyday since. This isn't easy for many reasons (one, I use to live in a religious cult) but it is working. I would have gone to more AA meetings, but I have been sick. Hopefully, tomorrow. But today everyone here is my support. Thank you! I need all that I can get.
