I remember having a terrible fear every Friday..that I would not be back on to work on Monday...due to over drinking.
I have felt any pain that anyone is feeling...I had the pain for over 25 years....the fear of losing a job...the fear of people telling me I looked bad or worst...smelled like alcohol.
I'm grateful I don't work anymore...and it has been tough for me the past 2 years staying away from a drink....so I give anyone who went to work today after a heavy drinking weekend...one BIG HIGH FIVE....
Always..on Monday...I would say..."after tonight (cause I'm so hungover)...I will start Tuesday and NOT drink....never happened..until I was basically having to force it to happen...calling in sick too much..finally had to go to a rehab/detox..just in order to keep my job.
That nightmare (went to 9 detoxes in the 19 years at my job)...went on and on for years..I always got away with the drinking and calling out...because I went for help...they couldn't fire me if I was getting help.
I wish I never drank again when I finally "left" that job.....because i had 8 years sobriety....and hadn't had those Monday mornings in a long time..but once i started drinking again 2 years ago...the H*LL has come back....the cravings...the feeling like a drunk...the dissapointed family members...on and on.
So bless you if you went to work for Monday after drinking. Thinking of you.
