Women and alcoholism


Alcoholics Anonymous remains to this day, the cheapest and most readily available source of support. If you’ve never been to a meeting and you need it for yourself or a loved one, just go. AA meetings are no pity party. These meetings can help alcoholics regain trust in people, themselves and their new life experience as a whole. They help you feel part of a group of people you can relate to. We all share the common goal of wanting sobriety and we are in it together. It stands to reason that only someone who has been through a similar hell can really understand you. And it is empowering to see others succeed at quitting. If they could do it, I felt back then, so could I. And so can you or your loved one.
