This entire summer I have tried to stop drinking but I managed to drink even more than usual. I began drinking in the afternoons, sometimes the mornings. Sometimes all night, I have tried to quit and I get to day 3 and all the sudden I convince myself it's ok to have a drink.. then one turns into a few days of a binge. Then I try to quit all over again. I'm so frustrated. I'm so ashamed and embarrassed. I thought I was hiding this but I guess that was the disease lying to me. I'm humiliated. I'm a single mom of two beautiful girls. I have always drank ( except when pregnant of course ) but this summer it just spiraled out of control and I'm here to get my life back, to find some words of encouragement as I again hit that 3 day mark again. I don't want to ever drink again but I know the way to do it is take it one day at a time. I'm tired of hating myself, tired of feeling ashamed and living with the regrets. I'm so worried I am doing damage I can not undo, if anyone understands how I feel and what I face please comment. I feel so helpless
