Alcoholics Anonymous

I’ve decided to actually go to an AA meeting for the first time, next week on Wednesday it will be. I’m not scared of actually going to the meeting, I mean, I have no problem speaking in front of people, I’m just somewhat scared of finally realizing that I must say goodbye to alcohol forever…….

Saying goodbye to alcohol is something I simply MUST do. If I don’t, then I think I might be dead within 5 to 10 years. Booze isn’t fun anymore, it hasn’t been fun for a year or so actually, it’s just been “open bottle of vodka, drink it, blackout, repeat”.

I’m going to be in mourning, in mourning because it will really feel like I’ve lost something that has given me so much joy in the past, along with a lot of pain, but it’s the good times I’ll remember like we all do with loved ones who’ve died. I’m going to miss it dearly, but all things must come to an end, don’t they.

What spurred this on? Well, part of it was spending the 200 dollars I got for my birthday on booze, part of it was the fact that my creativity and inventiveness and zest for life actually came back in full force when I went 7 days sober recently – I mean, I felt fucking awesome, and part of it was talking to people on Reddit’s #stopdrinking group of which I’m a member.

Has anyone gone through anything similar to what I’ve been through, troubles with alcohol? Your comments will be very much appreciated, thanks.

Bye bye.

  1. You should try it out, you might like it. I’ve heard good things about AA. 😉

  2. Though I haven’t been through this myself, I have a friend who has been sober for over 30 years. He knew he had to change when he was in his 30’s or else he would end up dead. Best decision he ever made. Good luck on your journey.

    • I HAVE to do it. There is no ‘sure’. Haha I got all Yoda on you! just watched the new Star Wars movie and I loved the almighty shit out of it! I’m officially a Star Wars nerd like I once was. And that movie helped to motivate me to stop drinking in a way – all those characters going on wild adventures without a hint of booze or any other drug in sight was just strangely very helpful.

  4. I am going to say AA didn’t work for me, but I am very much in the minority and that is due to mental health issues more than anything else. For me giving up booze was like ending a relationship, for me the difficulty came when all I could remember was the good times and couldn’t remember why we split up in the first place. That is the bit I struggle with

  5. I´m 8 months dry now. That wouldn´t be the case without AA. I wish you fun – and keep us updated!
