Hi everyone, hope you all had / are having a good weekend.
I just feel incredibly lonely at the moment.
I have been a heavy drinker since I was 12, I am 35 now so have been drinking for 23 years. I eventually hit rock bottom a couple of months ago when I had a mental break down and my marriage broke up. The drink used to take away the pain and without it I am so lonely. I was with my wife for 12 years and we spent nearly every day together, I am now on my own, I guess the drink was my friend and without it I am struggling big time emotionally.
I have been going to AA and am 3 weeks sober, which is the longest I can ever remember going without a drink. (I was a daily drinker and couldn’t get past 24 hours before now). I am totally and utterly grateful for this group and the support of you all. I just wish this void would shift. I know it will eventually, but I’m just so sad today. Tomorrow is another day, and one day at a time and all that. But I just want a hug tonight. *:’o(
Thanks for listening. God Bless. xxxx
