Re: day three

I am going to my first meeting today with a friend who just joined aa too. I'm doing another one tomorrow. I bought a copy of the big book and started reading a bit last night.

day three

It's amazing how fast I can shift through emotions right now. Day one I felt resolved, hopeful, ready. Day two was harder, I was unsure, frustrated, irratable.

Re: hi. I'm new. it's day one for me.

I never learned to drive and I can't stand asking for rides. Enough people have reminded me of what a hassle it is. They feel that if I want to get around I need to learn to drive. My anxiety disorder gets in the way, even after professional help. I feel uncomfortable leaving the house for anything ...

Re: hi. I'm new. it's day one for me.

Thankyou everyone. I feel like I dreamt all night long that I had drank. I couldn't remember doing it, but I knew I had and was upset I screwed up already. I woke up feeling like I had an 8 hr panic attack. I'm exhausted.

hi. I'm new. it's day one for me.

A couple years later I can drink 3 and a half liters in a week. I have anxiety and it's been my favorite reason. I u...
