open! You are in the right place. Some really good people here.
I've fought with alcohol abuse from age 12 all the way until I turned age 48. Proud to say I will be 6 years sober this summer and this is the first time I've really wanted to quit. I tried AA and rehab several times, but it actually made me want to drink more. I finally figured out I had to do it for myself or die. If you have 7 months sober, you have proven you can beat it. I know one drink could continue the path to a miserable death. My grandfather drank himself to death before age 50, and my very best friend drank himself to death at age 52.
I never have an appetite and got really tired of taking prescribed pills that did little but make me feel worse, so I made the move to a legal medical marijuana state. I went from 148lbs to 175lbs within just a few months and ditched all those sickening pills. I'm on Sovaldi treatment for 12 weeks, after that I hope I never see another pill in my life.
GOOD LUCK!! KEEP US POSTED!! STAY SOBER!!
