Welcome Dancer1998,

I am glad you found us. It sounds like you think you may have a problem but you are not quite sure how to get started. Using this program and looking for resources is a great place to start. I encourage you to work through the program and use the keyword  search to find discussions that pertain to you in the forums. 

You may also want to write a pros and cons list. Sometimes this can help us put things in perspective. Are you hoping to abstain completely or moderate?

Welcome to the forums. I know S. Africa has AA presence. It is an anonymous program members respect that tradition. You may also visit AA.org to understand more about alcoholism. And also visit some of the online forums if you are too concerned about visiting a local meeting.

Hi there

I am a 20 year old South African. I am a singer, actor and dancer who is just starting out but in the past year my drinking has become a problem. I can't seem to stop when I start, I get memory blackouts weekly, and I'm starting to crave it all the time, so much so that I drink in secret. My family and friends have shown concern but I'm always able to do everything I need to do. I performed well at college so I didn't see it as a problem but I'm starting to get worried. I don't know if this program will help but this is the first time I've admitted I might have a problem. I would really appreciate some advice 🌼
