I used to drink 5 nights a week and now I'm down to 2 nights. However when I drink I feel so bad I let everyone around down. Does anyone know of another group other than AA I can get help?

@thalassa
Thank you, very much! A local hospital staff has been talking to me about how to set up support groups for smokers. I was open with them about my alcoholic adventures in AA. (Me and my big mouth.) They want to attend AA meetings to see how they are run, but they want me to go with them, I suspect due to the stigma of being associated as an alcoholic. They can point at me and say "We are here in support of him." lol. Now I have to find open meetings.

there is another recovery program that takes a little bit more of a scientific approach. its called smart recovery. http://www.smartrecovery.org/ here is the website. there are some similarities to AA. sometimes the AA meetings are just a good place to go for support. after all many people drink because they are avoiding emotional problems. you can go to those discussion meetings and for the duration of your talking time you can gossip, vent, dump all over them, and get whatever is bothering you off your chest
