Hi there I went too my first AA meeting last night and it was over whelming. I need too do this for myself but everywhere k turn someone's talking about drinking or going out for New Year's Eve. What are some good tools too help me go through this battle.

I would make a couple of suggestions because this is a real tough time to get sober.
1. Get to a meeting every day for the foreseeable future
2. Get a temporary sponsor; this is not a long term relationship, just someone to help with your questions, find meetings, a person to call when you want to take a drink etc
3. Read the a First a Step every morning and every night for the next week

Hope this helps. Nothing like going to a meeting, telling everyone you are new and couple use some suggestions.
Peace and blessings

It's Def a tough time to get sober and from my experience changing people places and things has been very helpful to me in my journey of sobriety. Daily meeting is also very helpful and also sharing your concern in meeting
