I am an alcoholic, and I once thought I was not powerless over alcohol. Now I know that I was in denial. It is true. I am an alcoholic and I am indeed powerless. I need to stop drinking or I will lose everything. So now, I make a promise – I will not drink from today. No matter what. I will record my struggle here on this blog. Today is the first day of my sobriety. Wish me luck.
