The idea of quitting is frightening, isn't it? It feels like you're giving up your best friend, your lover, your confidante.
The only way I could convince myself was to finally get it that I <this is me, all people are different> would never get the depression under control while I was drinking. I always kept it in 'reserve' that once I got the underlying depression figured out that I would revisit staying sober.
One day, hour, minute, microsecond at a time.
We're here for you. You can talk about it without making a commitment. Sometimes just expressing how you feel helps things to gel in your own mind.
