I am new to this site but find it incredibly inspirational at the stories of courage.
I have not found this yet and need help.
I am a professional executive who has struggled with "the temptation" for over 10 yrs.
I call it that because it happens every evening and it is not like I desire to drink during the day.
After all, I feel I have it under control.
I want to stop. Stop feeling like I have to have it.
How many of you are like me?
Feel like you are not an alcoholic in the commercial sense of the word yet need a drink every night to cope?
As an executive, it all started in an airline club room. From there, I found the soothing and numbing effects helped me not to feel on the outside, yet my insides have so much pain.
I would appreciate any advice from any ladies who have been in my position.
I need help and not sure where I can go.
If I reach for community help, my secret will be known...maybe this is what I need to do.
