I have gone back and forth with alcohol abuse. I stopped completely for well over a year. Now, I have let it creep back into my life. I want to eliminate it forever. I tried AA and have read their books. I tried many different groups, but I concluded that it was not for me. So, maybe I can get some ideas from this site. My drinking is the only problem in my life.
