I was back where I was sick of being.
I first realised I had a drink problem over 17 years ago. I quit for the first time in December 1994, that lasted over 5 years. Started having odd one in 1999 and then back into it til October 2002. Quit til 2006 (apart from few months in between) blah blah blah, in a nutshell I tried and failed many times.
Why am I so determined this time?, cos I've had enough. Booze is not
for me. And I have finally totally accepted that I cannot control it. As I said
in another post, when I am sober I miss being drunk, when I'm drunk I miss being sober; all I know is when it comes to the strength of that feeling of missing the latter far outweighs the former. I love being sober, I am happy, life is organised, I have plans. I have many different pleasures in life, not just one. I miss alcohol but quite simply that is the price I pay for soberity. I can live with that. ps How do I put a smiley face on?

'slips' in anyone are not a problem , almost go with the territory, as they say, it's what you do afterwards that counts, for me I took advice to 'believe' more deeply, apply a geater effort to my attempts to make spiritual progress and in doing so placed increasing value on my sobriety and the gifts it brought me...

Rachel you keep trying and that's the important part. Sounds like you're in a better place now. I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that when I finally decided to get straight, it still took me 5 year's to accomplish my goal. Best of Luck to you my Friend.
