    I'm so glad that you sought help before bad things started happening in your life and nursing practice! I sought help through my state's nurses assistance program for my drinking as I was just miserable and knew things would eventually get much worse. I don't regret it one bit. The program is tough but you can definitely do it...just keep working on your sobriety! Prayers for you as you go forward!

    was not a lot of fun, was a lot of work, was so very much worth it.
    since completion, have worked ER, and successful DON in LTC.

    i am a better nurse today !

    THE PROGRAM WORKS IF YOU WORK IT. Your wonderful DR.

    Hi! So sorry I am late checking in - saw your posting that u will be going in today - u will be in my thoughts and prayers today and in the days and weeks ahead. You have made that first HUGE step that SO many of us are terrified to make. You CAN do this, and you have friends here at AN rooting for you. August 16th, 1999 was a long time ago to some but I can still feel all the emotions going through me. Every day I get up and am thankful to have another day of sobriety!

    Good luck! Anne,RNC
