Hi, my name is Shelley and I am an alcoholic.
I am a 21 year old college student and I have struggled with alcohol since mid-high school. I think I have always known that one day I would have to quite the stuff entirely. Well, that day has come.
I have been sober for one week now and I have attended two meetings!!!I would have gone to more but I went out of town to visit my parents and tell them about my problem. I asked them for support and I am recieveing it.
This disease runs rampant through my families history. My great grandpa died of alcoholism and my aunt has been a roceovering alcoholic for ~20 years now. I am going to another beetin tonight and I am excited! I really look forward to participating in this forum. I need extra help!! For more on me, I will post something on the relationship forum. It seems my boyfriend and I are having some trouble now that I am seeking sobriety. He is not sure I am an alcoholic and I lied to him, so his trust for me is gone (for now).
Goodluck to everyone out there!
I am sure your keeping it up!
