Now What

after you accept the fact you are an alcoholic i am left with the feeling.. now what? after a wasted night full of mistakes i don't know what to do. I can't avoid alcohol it is every where. I am so depressed I don't want to go outside.. what is worse. Being an Alcoholic or not living life.

I'm one, too. I ended up yellow, with no liver function, and in an ambulance going to the emergency room. For 30+ years, I drank every day; I started when I was 12. I didn't know how to do anything without drinking.<br />

Try AA. Just sit there, listen and do what they say. Don't pick 'em apart finding differences; look for similarities. If you stick with it, you'll find someone who strikes a chord with you. Go talk to them. If you're not at all spiritual, ignore the "higher power" stuff and just do the physical parts. Sooner or later, it'll hit you; what the hell was I thinking, doing that for all those years? I'm 8.5 years sober now. I'd be dead if it wasn't for AA<br />

Good luck,J.PS Alcohol is not everywhere even though it may seem that way. It may be everywhere you go now but it's not everywhere, period.
