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 >>
