I just joined, have been reading past posts and feeling encouraged by them. Thank you. I need and want to quit drinking- I am tired of being hungover every morning, broke, not being present in my marriage, jeopardizing my career, looking 10 years older, pressing my luck with my physical health/safety and so on and so on...
In my early 20s I did AA, rehab and even adversion therapy (my parents were Mormon and went a little overboard when they found out I started drinking in college). I wasn't that interested in recovery at the time, and found it all awful and depressing. But now in my 30s I see that I really do have a problem and it's really starting to scare and humiliate me.
I guess I'm just looking for some direction, or support or I don't know what. I am open to AA but I don't even know where to start or find one and practically have an anxiety attack imagining walking into a meeting by myself and having to speak or possibly seeing someone I know.
I've tried to cut back but it never works. I have faith that sobriety would bring a fuller, happier, safer life. But then I think about my partner who is in the same place as me and worry we could either be a great help to each other or a major stumbling block. Or I think about an upcoming tropical vacation with family who basically plan the itinerary around drinking and I just don't know how I could ever be strong enough to do it.
It feels like I'm sinking slowly but surely my breathing getting worse by the day feeling so breathles I just don't know what to do I'm so scared. I don't know how much more I can take.
Hey everyone,I'm from Toronto, and I'm trying to drop weight before I can reschedule my surgery. In the meantime, I'm trying to deal with my horrible back pain. My doctor suggested going for chiropractic treatment. I would never have considered it otherwise because I'm not sure I believe in chiropractors.Right now, I'm searching for a suitable clinic in Toronto. Does anyone know of this...
