    Today Is The First Day ...

    I am trying to quit as of today, 1st May 2010. Already I see that I do not type "quitting' but 'trying' to quit. Have just poured our whole supply of wine down the sink. I live in the middle of nowhere on a farm and I will need the support of others on-line.

    Hello, Everyone. I would like to share my

    experiences from drinking heavily since September. It is now a new year and I am planning on quitting drinking for a whole year so I decided to write this before I start the Sober Journey. What I have learnt from drinking, going to the bars and just flat out being a drunk is...

    I'm trying to quit drinking any alcohol.

    ... But time flies really slow, and I have no idea what I should do... And even if I find something that I want to do, I don't feel like doing it.... Can't find any reason to live without alcohol. Is this normal for drinkers who are trying to quit? I wonder if getting a Dog will...

    I have been a piece of ****.

    Im a completely different person when I get drunk and I HATE that person. And now she's ruined the best thing that ever happened to me, and I feel so alone. It's hard not to drink when you work in a bar. Not necessarily because I have access to alcohol, but because it's...

    I really want to quit drinking.

    It is the only negative thing in my life but it's hard because all of my friends go out all the time. Day 1 I guess.

    I Want To Talk To Other People Who Want To Quit Drinking

    Wine is my worst vice. You could put a bottle of vodka in front of me - I would have a shot - but then go to the liquor store and buy wine. So I'm a wino. I am so happy when I am sober and well rested, it almost doesn't make sense. I envy people who have a drink and then stop...
