Bright eyed, bushy tailed, online help.

In my misery I signed up on Thursday to the forums at an online alcohol counselling service called Brighteyes. I left a message in their SOS section, but with no instant reply, I haven't returned until now.

It seems a lively community and genuinely supportive. Nothing that can do any harm and with any luck it will do some good.

Checking back, I've received some lovely supportive messages, and I'm determined to log in more regularly. (But, then I'm determined to do a lot of things which I never follow through on).

I'd think about giving it a try if you're on the computer and need someone to talk to - it can be very lonely to be an alcoholic. Some of the stories are harrowing, some inspirational.
