At first, I sincerely didn’t know what to expect when I began group sessions. My first group there were about 15 people and the majority of them were close to my age and were dealing with the same struggles as I was. So, right off the bat my mind was put at ease. Over the past month and a half I have proven to myself that I do have will power, I can use that will power, and by using it I am ultimately bettering myself in my current life and for my future. I have become more productive, more active, more confident and less consumed by my thoughts about drinking. Group has encouraged me by meeting new people, discussing relevant topics and addressing issues that I struggle with. Overall this group has made a very positive impact in my life and it came at the right time in my life when I needed it the most.
