    @get better... Have you thought about seeking professional help? Seeing an addiction specialist would be a great start. They can assess your situation and recommend the best next steps for you. Seeing a therapist who specializes in treating people with addiction issues could be a big help, too. So often there are underlying issues that are a root cause of addiction. Discovering and confronting those issues can make getting sober much easier.

    Addiction is a disease, not a moral failing. So there should be no shame or fear in asking for help.

    We are here for you, so you are not alone. If you need help, support, or just someone to listen, stop by anytime and use us as a resource.

    @get better glad you want something different. i always say if you want different results, you've got to do something different...and many times, that's a BIG different...

    reaching out here is a start. Dean has given great advice. asking for help is a courageous and badass thing to do. if you've tried and can't do it, stand tall and reach out for all the help you can get.

    do you have a plan as to how you can do that? or what that would look like for you?
