Hi Steve,

I've found that the only time I want to stop drinking is when the pain from drinking becomes more than the pain of being sober. If you really are hurting, then there's only one way to stop, no one else can do it for you. Sometimes it takes a lot of pain to get our attention, but if we continue to use, we numb the pain, but it is still there, waiting for a sober moment to let us see ourselves as we really are. For me, when that sober moment came, the reflection in the mirror was not one I want to see again. Keep trying, and keep hugging your daughter, for she is hoping to see you as you really are soon, without the pills, back to your old fun self again.
