Have already posted for the first time this morning regarding my wind,since starting my Alcoholic rehabilitation program. On a more serious note,10 years ago i had a full Detox ,beat the drink,life back to normal(so i thought). Went 14 months without a drink. Decided to have a couple of Shandies(Big Mistake). Shandy got boring,fancied the real thing.Afterall i'm in control now,should be ok. Yes one lead to another,before you know it,drinking regular but not out of control. By the way,i am 49 and 1 of what was 4 brothers.Lost my youngest brother Paul(29),then had the unfortunate pleasure of finding my next eldest(41) Brian,having took his life(also an Alcoholic),and then Dad(64),i know what your thinking,bet he was an Alcoholic,no, cancer and heart failure took him. My way of dealing with this was drink. So spiralled out of control. Told myself, nip it in the bud,too late.Told myself get the weekend out the way,and start afresh from next week. Weeks,months past,time to seek help again. i am currently undergoing an Alcoholic Rehabilitation Programme,as i sit her typing(10-11 weeks dry),yes its early days, courtesy of the magic pill Disulphiram/Antibuse. Don't think about drink,don't crave for it. The wife has the occasional glass of wine in the house(you will say thats wrong,shes not helping),but in actual fact i dont mind,after all she dosn't have a drink problem. Been out for pub meals,being around drink didn't bother me.Anyway what this is leading to is the burning question,Once an Alcoholic Always an Alcoholic ? Is there anybody out there able to have the occasional/social drink after Detox ? I know most of you will say with my history,don't do. Thanks for reading and look forward to feedback
