Contratulations on making some good choices for yourself. It won't be an easy road but at least you have some support. You are welcome to write here anytime you are having troubles. It will help to have that extra support. Are you planning on going to AA meetings?
tmcgrath112 replied to lexismom11's response:
thank you lexismom11, not AA cuz I don't like it but im going to join a soberity maitnence group with the same kid i joined the gym with.AA is too depressing to me, And sometimes I can't open up to a group of strangers, My anxiety gets to me.
lexismom11 replied to tmcgrath112's response:
As long as you realize you need some type of support with sobriety, then you will do fine. If AA is depressing to you, then maybe a sobriety maintenance group is the best place. I am assuming it is a smaller group of people than an AA meeting and only the people who are part of the group meet?
