schadaenfreude


I heard once that homosexuals who were in denial about their sexuality were more likely to attack gays than anybody else. I was thinking about this story this evening.
Why? I have a relative who tortured me about my addiction. She knew I was battling a mental illness but she made a big deal about cutting me off and she encouraged other younger family members to trash me too. She wasnt just nasty she was take your breath away nasty and she kept it up for years.
. Guess who was found passed out last night surrounded by 3 empty wine bottles? Im normally a kind person but guess who laughed? Maybe some day I will relent and txt her the address of this forum but it wont be today or tomorrow

In my active drinking years, I was guilty of some despicable behavior.

This..."passed out last night surrounded by 3 empty wine bottles" reminds me of the hell of my alcoholism. I am so glad to no longer be a slave to alcohol. I am so grateful that in sobriety, I have been given the opportunity to amend my less than admirable past actions and work on being a better human being.

I hope that all who suffer from alcoholism, can find the way out of hell to experience the wonderful gift that recovery is. There but by the grace of God, go I.

Sorry to hear that, I to hope she realizes her wrongs and tries to make them right by getting sober some day.

I did a lot of not very nice things when I was a secret drinker too.
I'm sorry you were treated that way Sammy but I hope your aunt finds recovery like we all have.

I am obviously surrounded by better people than myself.

I wouldn't see myself asbetter.
My response is different - but I understand yours.

I've had more recovery time to think through stuff like this tho.

I'm also guessing I'm a fair bit older than you. A lot of my family are growing old and frail - stuff like that makes me see the past in a different light.

I was a 'tidy' alcoholic (my apartment wasn't a mess or anything), but there were times when I passed out in vomit covered bed clothes, not having the energy to change them until the next day. Then would put them in a 60 degree wash but sometimes they would still be stained so would have to throw them out. Ah, the high life!

I agree with this.

I am trying to save my own ass, by utilizing what I have learned and been shown thus far by others in recovery.
