    Yeah. My fiancee and I have been struggling with this stupid addiction for a long time. And after so many dumbass meaningless fights over nothing, breaking down doors, splitting a 5th of cheap shitty ass vodka every night, and not having any money because I keep spending it on booze (and not Transformers dammit) we walked into AA tonight. I cried for the entire hour and kept my sunglasses on.

    I know this thread goes against Kickbacks "is anyone normal...?" thread. But right now, I feel more comfortable sharing here then there. But I'm gonna change that eventually.

    I'm glad you took the appropriate steps to solve problems in your life instead of blaming them on other things. You took responsibility and admitted a problem ... that's the first step to recovery.

    I've lost family to that disease, so it hits closer to home. No shame in admitting a problem if you're getting help for it. Big kudos to you ... now just keep at it.

    Same here. I lost my Dad to alcoholism just a couple years ago.

    Kudos to you, man. It takes real cajones to make a stand like that and want that out of your life.

    Yeah, I have an uncle that started out as an alchoholic, moved on to drugs, dealing drugs, lost his house, killed a guy, and is now in jail.

    Thank you so much for the support. I've alienated a lot of friends because of this crap so its nice to feel support from my friends here. I've been a board member for almost seven years and most of my posts were when I was completely blasted. Which is kinda embarassing to admit, but hell, its true.

    Good luck, my mom still drinks and it's trashed her life. Something I grew up with as a kid, kudos for taking the first step to getting your life back.

    Remember kids, pot is the really dangerous drug!

    Congrats on taking this step though. It's a good thing to do.

    For drunk people, not drunks. Although obviously that has an overlap.

    Good luck FF, alcoholism is something I've frequently joked about inthe past ( and was sometimes rather more serious), but in all reality it is a dreadful thing. I wish you all my best and you know that we're all here for you :) ...
