Hi All--

I've known I'm an alcoholic for years and couldn't bring myself to stop drinking. Last week, however, I ended up at a local ER with full-blown DTs. I'm lucky to be alive.

Tomorrow I start an eight-week rehab. My emotions are out of control and I can't sleep. But my experience last week put me firmly on Step 1. I don't want to keep killing myself.

It's helped me a lot to read the postings here.

Hi M.

Welcome to! Thanks for joining the forums and thank you even more for taking the time to share with us what’s going on with you!

Yep! Sounds like you’re lucky to be alive!

I hope that your last little adventure made you more of a believer that on your own, chances are that you can’t stop drinking, and stay stopped, if you’re alcoholic – but there is help. That’s why we’re here!!! We got help, we’re still getting help, and we’re all here to help you too! We sometimes have a little slogan around here that says “I can’t but we can!â€
