Re: The Spirituality Connection

Re: KIDS/FAMILIES - how do they feel about your drinking

I do know that I never engaged with my children out of anger, not sober, not corrective and most certainly not with drinking. My oldest son and I are breaking new ground with our relationship that we were separated from by his fathers manipulation and lies, and my son's insecurity. I have told him t...

Re: How childhood shapes us

Achristop, thank you, in honesty we gain freedom. I need freedom from who I had become and grow into the person I really want to be and if I can't be honest, I will never see it. If other people can learn from what i know or I am learning, we all win.... Thank you

Re: The relationship I have with myself.......

When I lost my daughter it took me two years to grieve, until I understood, " A rose held yesterday, is a rose held today". By this I mean, that while I understood she wasn't here anymore, it didn't mean I didn't love or don't love here...it means that I will live for her. That being said, when I wa...

Re: successful cutting down?

Yes I have been successful, sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's difficult. One big thing I have learned is yes you make the choice to drink, but if the surroundings or stress is making it difficult to cut down, then you may have to make choices that may be painful. What has happened... I was drin...

Re: Please post here if you are planning to drink.

It came to me last night after 3/4 of a pint that if I loved myself, I wouldn't this. The last time I quit I lasted 4 days and the drinking got heavy. So I am going to pour a half pint of vodka and do it this way, until I can be sure I can be done. And yes I was alright when I stopped for those 4 da...

Re: June General Support and Chat

As it almost time for my nightly pint, I don't know if today is my day to say I'm through, but in looking at the 35 years I have used this kind of drinking for whatever this societal abusive planet can give birth to, One thought that I haven't seen on here, and I wonder how much weight it has...

Re: How childhood shapes us

Good Day all, I can remember days in my infancy while in my crib, watching the sunlight lighting all the particles in the room and thinking it magically wonderful, but when I looked the other way my mother entertaining in the other room with a drink in her hand. Then it goes to memories of me sittin...

Roger, I have spent 25 years of my life in fear of a man, until I came to point where every time I looked the staircase and spend the next thirty minutes how free I could be if I just hung myself...This happened for about two months until I recalled the attempt in my youth.

Hi, I am new here today, Because during my nightly pint, last night I discovered that I couldn't possibly love myself nearly as much as I do for the man in my life, or our dog or my sweet cockatiel. So this morning, I called work to let know I would not be in today, because I need to find a reasonab...
