juribe, ditto! Thank you for all that you do by serving our country!!! I appreciate you!
Also, AA is pretty strong, I've been told, in our military.... Lot's of excellent AA's serving others and the country!
Welcome to the site! I'll be happy to help in any way that I can.
Best suggestion that I can offer is: Don't drink!
And, if you're like I was when I first heard that... my next question was "can someone tell me how not to drink?"
As I discovered by being an alcoholic -- I was doomed to drink! Even when sober -- I didn't have what I needed, so that I could stay sober. And, I knew it.
So, I hooked up with some AA's that were staying sober... and started asking them what they did to stay sober, and also doing whatever it was that they did... And, so far... I've been able to stay sober!
I still consider myself to be a newbie, too! The date of my last drink is November 14th, 1986 and this deal has worked pretty good for me! I hope it will be as good for you as it has been for me!
Keep coming back!
