    False Promises from Alcohol

    thanks for sharing this wonderful poem...a lady was buried today in New Brunswick, Canada where my husband grew up. She was in her mid thirties and had 2 children age 6 and 7. She froze outside in last weeks storm and That is all I've been thinking about today. I am at that age and also have small children 6, 3 and 4 months. I quit 31 days ago after my husband found me passed out in our garage. My heart goes out to her family <3

    Confused But Hopeful

    the Dalai Lama makes a similar remark to encourage compassion for others. He says it's really more selfish to help because you will feel so good. I would ride that high deek!

    I too spend too much time on the Internet sometimes to the detriment of household activities. I try to set parameters.. Attempts at moderation lol.

    The Spiritual Malady

    I think this is a very insightful and introspective blog. I am sure you are on the right track. Service takes your mind from "self" to "other". This is the key to sustained recovery.

    False Promises from Alcohol

    Thank you for sharing this lovely poem..Im on day 4 and up very early due to a nasty nightmare involving demons trying to possess me after drinking a bottle of wine!! Of course there was alot more involved in this dream - people, places from the past including my children as youngsters. I was trying to get into a car and drive them to safety but the demons surrounded me. My children are now adults 23 and 21 and I havent seen them for 4 years - their choice. The poem is a true reflection of how this awful addiction creeps up, starts as your friend (after all its legal - right??) introduces you to its other victims so you think its all ok, then boom your life starts to depend on all the excuses it can muster up for you to carry on sipping from its false friendship. I hate how I allowed this so called friend to manipulate my life for so many years..God give me the strength and courage to erase this foe who has done nothing but waste my time, interfere with my relationships and work and I have no doubt my health..If only we knew what a negative and destructive relationship we were heading into at the start..I wish you all a safe and sober new journey x

    Don't mean to criticize

    It's hard for me to get away from being judgmental. Only until I see what a smoke-screen such judgments have been can I take steps to be kinder. Why would I want to examine myself and my motives if I can criticize you instead? Progress is a long road...
