I encourage you to look up a meeting near you on this web site. I have found the meetings to be a very good start. At least you will not feel as alone. There will be other people that you can talk to and ask questions.

AA meetings will get you pointed in the right direction. Then you can decide the direction you want to take.

Just go. There are no fees, just show up and listen. You can sit at the back of the room if you want. They have all been first timers at some point. They understand.
