Skeptically hopeful

Well, yesterday was my dad's first day sober. He said that he's in the right mindset and he feels good about it. I'm trying not to get too excited. I have been let down far too many times. I have no doubts his heart is in the right place. But being the heavy drinker he is, I can only imagine withdrawal symptoms are not far behind and he's going to find it much harder than just saying "ok, I quit! Yay me!" He doesn't sound like he wants to attend any meetings, and I just think he's at the point that he can't do it alone. We'll see what happens.
