Hello everyone. My name is Kitt. I am 22 years old and I have been drinking everyday since i was 14. I started drinking because my parents were never around and I felt like I was alone. I didn't have any friends, my family never talked to me. I just sat in my room from the time I came home from school until I went to bed. I have been diagnosed with severe depression. Recently I met a man who has changed the way I feel about myself. He showed me what true love was. I never knew what the word meant until I met him. I joined this group because I want to be better. I want to be better for myself and for our relationship to work. I need to get better. Last night was when I realized that my drinking was a real problem. I had never thought it was that bad until I stole my fiance's medication because I ran out of alcohol. He is an army vet and has a spinal cord injury and is on a lot of medication for pain. This was my all-time low. I feel terrible about it. It made me realize that I need to get better, or I will lose him. Today will be my last day of drinking. I cant keep doing this. It just gets worse and worse. Its time for me to stop. Tonight I called the AA hotline and they gave me times and locations for local meetings. I plan on going to all of them as I do not have a job and I am on break from school for the next month.
