You can do it! I agree - find a meeting and a group - that will be key in helping you get your feet under you and in staying away from alcohol.
Good luck!

I get drunk but we stay sober. I walked into the door of an AA meetings over 3 and half decades ago and I am still coming back. I like to remember simple things, like the slogan I quoted in the beginning. I was like you or at least, like what you have told me. The fellowship of AA gave me back the me, I never really knew! I always say that I have meet some of the most wonderful people in the world in AA meetings. I was not by any stretch of the imagination a wonderful person, when I first walked through the doors, but they told me I didn't have to live like that anymore. In time I came to realize, what a wonderful gift I had been given. I didn't have to worry about where the next drink was coming from or who was making decisions for me or about me! I even know what year it is and who is president. My friend, try finding an A.A meeting and you just might find more understanding than you have known in your life! I know I did!

I will answer the question will it happen for me? with a question: Can you just stay sober today? ways that helped me stay sober for 20 years were: 1 I prayed for GOD to take away the obsession to drink and get high. 2 I went to a ton of meetings, and still do. 3 I stayed away from people places and things. 4 I help someone get a day sober. 5 I did a gratitude list when I thought I had nothing, it changed my life and the way I look at things. At the time I had no money or material things but I discovered the important things. like, I could read and write and walk and talk and think and listen and learn, despite doing every thing I could to destroy my self, I still had another chance. So do you, now make the most of it!
