DAY 24 - The Bachelor

Posted 01-22-2019 at 02:04 PM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

I am currently in the process of taking courses to obtain a Real Estate license. Sobriety has made this process a lot easier on me. It is SO much information, my head feels like it is going to explode. Since my sobriety, I don't have to manage hangovers and I have a clear head. I have been able to retain information a lot faster. I am scoring higher on benchmark tests. I can study hours at a time now.

I am currently at the end of the 4th course, and after I pass this course...

DAY 18 - Marriage - An Alcoholic's Perspective

Posted 01-16-2019 at 09:36 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

Communication, forgiveness, kindness, compassion, respect, and trust; the absence of these attributes are detrimental to a marriage. Both parties should be trying their best every day to act on these characteristics for a healthy relationship.

I have been drunk so many times in the past 15 years of our relationship, too many to count, and I beat myself up for that each day. My husband is a very sensitive, loving, gentle, and kind man. He is my balance and he is my rock. I am...

Day 27 - I'd rather...

Dance at night on the dewy lawn,
Listen to a No Doubt song.

Tip toe through a field of butterflies,
Stand underneath the star lit skies.

Float on a tube down the river,
Get used to the water as I shiver.

Ride a bike on the boardwalk,
Meet new friends, hang out and talk.

Watch a punk band put on a fun show,
Sneak up to the very front row.

Hold my brand new baby for the first time,

Day 24 - Thank You, God

Posted 04-09-2017 at 12:55 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

Yes, there are rotten things I survived so far as a human being, but I always feel blessed. I could have been born under the horrific circumstances like the Syrian civilians. I could be a parent that pulled my dead baby out from the gravel today after my government tried to blow us up. I immediately have a different perspective, I could have been dealt different cards. I could have been born in Africa and turned to prostitution just to get water for my family. I could have been born in Haiti,...

Day 22 - Nerd

Posted 04-06-2017 at 11:26 PM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

I'm pretty sure where my alcohol abuse stemmed from:

SEXUAL ABUSE:
I was sexually molested by my birth father until almost the age of 10. I have no communication with my birth father, other than the times he calls me from a private number. He is a psychopath, narcissistic, and sociopath. He was never clinically diagnosed, he thought he was God, but many stories in therapy gave my therapist a strong hunch. My mother remarried eventually to the most wonderful man;...
