Evening, My name is John Storey. I served in, RMP from 85-87, RCT from 87-94, 4DD's from 94-96, 3Cheshire fom 96-98, and then from then until 2006 I was RLC. Then from 2006 civvie street. I have been an alcoholic for coming on 20 years now, it has ruined my life. I've lost my license, it's cost me two marriages, it is what caused me to leave HM Armed Forces in the first place. But up until now, I have never really tried to do anything about it. Certain circumstances have caused me to re-think and now I want it to chnage my life and get off the booze. My problem is, Alcoholics Annonymous doesn't really do it for me. I feel that my alcholism was partly brought on by my time in the Army, and AA don't seem to understand the squaddie mentality so cannot be of much help to me. So my question is, are there any ex-forces alcoholic self help groups in Cheshire that I could attend? Even if this is not possible, anything anyone can suggest to help me would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for your time, John. EDIT: I appreciate this is the section for a dross and a laugh, I just couldn't find a section of the forum that suited this topic the best. On top that I'm an old codger so this forum stuff is well over my head.
