i need help

Unread postby lesj » Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:46 am

Hi. This is my first time posting. I don't drink everyday but when I do I overdo it. I have 2 small kids and I know if I don't stop I'll lose them and that is horrifying. The thought of not being able to drink bothers me. I'd lice to have a glass of wine or two but apparently I cant. I feel like a horrible wretched person and my husband is about to leave me. I need to find my strength somehow. And I'm so scared.

There are thousands of us that took that first step. My strongest advice is frequent meetings. They have helped me immensely but you can feel free to share on here or with me personally. I'll be looking for you as well as praying for you. I drank for 30 yrs and l never want to be that person again. I look to my children and grandchildren for forgiveness and guidance. I wish you the best.

I also realize that I need help with my drinking. I can be sober for periods of time but eventually I get weak and go right back to wanting a few drinks and caving in to the addiction. I realize I can not just have one drink and must focus on saving my marriage and staying sober. I intend to start attending meetings tomorrow. I would like to find meetings where I feel comfortable. When I am ready to speak I will. I thought I could do it on my own; I can not. I am 54 years old.

I am a mother of 3 spending mothers day morning alone, my children are fed up with me. I had 6 months of sobriety and thought I could control my drinking, but the need came back with a rage. I want to again be free of the demon. I need to start today, not tomorrow, and pave a different path, once again. It feels so heavy and exhausting, failure is horrible. I am going to a meeting today, to start again.
