Question for the guests

Unread postby green eyes » Thu Jan 26, 2012 10:55 pm

Why are you not you not joining? Are you here to help or thinking about joining? It is a relief when you finally admit to yourself that you are alergic to alcohol - that can be en easier way to say it. God if I only had all those days back that were lost to this illness. If I only could undue all the hurts I caused and bad choices and on and on. For everyone that has this so many around them that are affected and harmed. And knowing all that why is it so hard to just stay sober? I got drunk before my son's funeral I am sure he was not proud of that and I hate myself for it. I due to my drinking could not fly to SC for my dads funeral - pretty shameful I hope I am feeling more hopefull tomorrow and stop this pity party because it is not becoming or inspiring at all sorry for that

Greeneyes: You may not realize that what you posted would be inspiring, but when I read it I was so inspired by what you posted. What you posted takes a lot to admit to and you deserve a hug for that. I knew for a while that I had an issue, and it took me much longer after that to admit to anyone that I knew I had a problem. I went to the funeral of a very good friend of mine, who I miss terribly and had to take sneak into the bathroom to use. I know that when my friend looked down from heaven and saw that, he probably would have like to kick me in the ass. I sometimes reflect on this friend of mine who died and I wish that I had admitted sooner that I had a problem, because maybe he would still be here. Maybe if I had admitted it, I could have taken him to meetings with me and he wouldn't be dead. It's a guilt that I still deal with. We both had prescription medication addictions. Everyday I do stay clean, I dedicate to my family and my friend.Hugs!
