... To the nice people that have taken the time to reply- Thanks! I've moved D-Day to tomorrow. Procrastination has gotten me ten years into alcohol abuse and drug addiction (I kicked cocaine a few years ago).

... I have been out of detox since the end of September. I was drinking a fifth of tequila a day. I am now in AA, have a sponsor and I am working the steps as defined in the AA program.
