Day one: help needed

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I joined because I want to stop drinking and think that I may need the support of a community to help me through this. I have decided that I want to quit drinking and today is the first day of what I hope will be the road to recovery. It is 2.30pm and there is no alcohol in the house and I am trying really hard not to go out and buy some but it's all I can think about.

I have been drinking every evening for five years and drink half a bottle of vodka and half a bottle of wine every day. I spend stupid amounts of money on alcohol which could be put to better use. I am always tired, no matter how much sleep I get. I have no motivation to do anything other than to go to the shops to buy my next 'fix'. I really want to stop but not sure how to do it. Can anyone advise me please?

Thank you.
