Today I Quit DrinkingWell today is the first day of the rest of my life. I am sober for the first time in a very long time. I have drank for about 30 years. I am 58 and that makes for some serious alcohol issues. I am nauseated, shaky, dizzy and I have the runs. But dang it, I am sober. My liver also feels sore which I never noticed before. I wrecked my car and was arrested in 2008 but I did not stop drinking. But I decided today to quit. I quit smoking and I think it is going to be a lot harder to quit drinking that it was to stop smoking. Alcoholism is in my genes. My mom died from it. My brother is an alcoholic and homeless and may be dead. I don't know. Alcohol was my God. I worshiped it. A friend is taking me to AA on Monday as I do not drive since the accident as my license was revoked. My hands are trembling pretty badly and I hope that goes away soon. I know having a drink would make the trembling go away but that is not an option. I need all the support I can get. Wish me luck and a prayer would not hurt either. Thank You.
