best of the blog, repost, since i’m away 🙂

I want help for sobriety, but not AA

Last year, when i knew i was drinking more than i wanted to, I did some preliminary research on AA and decided it wasn’t for me.  I started downloading the TV show “Intervention”.  I read Unpickled’s blog. And then i waited.  Several more months passed.  I would quit for a few days, once for as long as 9 days.  Then i’d start drinking again.  For months, i continued to work and run and host events and drink every night starting at 6 pm.

I’m not sure why i thought that AA wasn’t for me. Please, no disrespect to AA.  it works super very well for whacks of people.  And here’s the truth:  If i had tried other things, and they didn’t work, then i’m sure i would have tried AA eventually.

But for me, at least to start, I knew I wanted something else, some other way to support my new sober journey.  But what’s available? >> read more here >>
