There is no disgrace or shame in being an alcoholic. What will bring on the shame is if you are given the gift of sobriety and throw it away for a few hours of feelings. I had to deal with it every day with my son..do it was one day at a time with him for years of pain rehab and disappointment.
I am not a alcoholic although I could have been I don't know how some end up in the demons clutch and other who have endured great pain in life do not.
If one stopped drinking and slips then I have Heard my son say he wanted his misery back it would be there & it would be waiting for him any time He decided He wanted it back.
I believe in the Big Book and the program promises. My son does too. Yet he can't seem to stay in a sober place. I have let go yet I will always luv him.I understand the mental breakdown alcohol has on the brain.
It would be so nice if he didn't have to wake up every day wandering what He said or did (or maybe who He did) ,the night before. Wow what a wonderful feeling to know he felt sane & secure.
That he could just pick himself up and do what he needs to do with out that sick fish for a drink.
That he has not done any thing that would affect him the rest of his life.
That he has good health.
That he can be the uncle, brother, father and husband he was meant to be.
So if I could ask for one thing for any one of the people on this alcohol forum for today I would ask you to start out as a whole new day and stop living in the past & let yesterday go. Give urself forgiveness to move on thru to the other side of alcoholism that leads to SOBRIETY.
I Think that there r those who can find sobriety and some who have so much self hate from all the guit of an alcoholic life that they will never find sobriety.no matter how much they r told they r loved.
I ask those who are caught in the struggle of the alcoholic life what do they think would be a rock bottom place in their lives before they quit alcohol and decided that sobriety was their only salvation. Then found a way to find help with out all the excuses??????
