Coming Out!Dear EP friends,
You are the 1st to know. I am a closet, binge drinker. I use alcohol to ease my emotional pain. I tried stopping on my own but can't do it. Whenever life seems too overwhelming I always resort back to alcohol. I am going to a woman's recovery home for 3 months. Ouch........ I'm so afraid. Being surround by a group of women day in and day out is quite overwhelming for me. But they have an excellent reputation and a good success rate!!! And I really want to learn better coping skills. I tried AA and doing it on my own but didn't succeed so I'm trying something different. It seems drastic but that's what I feel need.
I am very closetet about my drinking. I never get drunk in public!!! I'm very ashamed!!! I am going to have to come out to friends and family about this issue and am scared of their judgement. I come from a very religious and proper family!!
Please wish me luck!
I go into recovery on September 4th.
