Living without alcohol

Hello, I am Miry, an alcoholic and I have been sober since 31st October 2017. Nice to meet you :slight_smile:
I got drunk for the first time when I was 12 but I started drinking seriously when I was 14. It began as a curiosity but it soon became a problem. When I was 15 I used to buy beers, hide them under my bed and drink when I was alone, just to flee from my problems. I was a really sad girl and the only one moment when I was happy was when I was drunk. As the years passed by, my alcoholism got worse and worse. I swore every week I would have stopped drinking but I simply couldā€™t. Alcohol was and is stronger than me. I quit drinking for three years and eight months but then I started drinking again because I broke up with a boy and I had a job I hated. I called AA and now Iā€™m sober. Now Iā€™m trying not to smoke cygarettes because I shifted my addiction from alcohol to them. I tried so many times to quit but nothing has worked.
