I am losing myself. i suffer from chronic pain afraid of the pain pills.been drinking for several years now recently switched from beer to wine thinking it would help me slow down. my husband and son are always angry with me and last night totaled new car and probably getting dui. my life seems to revolve around drinking i have put it above all i love. i dont work anymore and only place i know to be around people is local pub. maybe needed wake up call. would like 2 find people to get together with other than drunk neighbors. went to meetings in past and had bad experiences. will try again but does anyone get together outside of meetings for hiking or other activities.

I wish I was near you. I have the same requirements for friends that don't drink and do other stuff instead. It's a lonely fight - but we are not Alone. We are here, united and together.
I wonder if those of us with smartphones can do this together. We don't have to be physically in the same place to go for walks together.
