DAY 18 - Marriage - An Alcoholic's Perspective

Posted Yesterday 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...

Christmas break officially ends today for my daughter (14), she returns to 8th grade tomorrow. The past 3 weeks both of her cousins and she were either at our house, my sister's house or my mom's house. I did a lot of driving kids around, I take them to the mall, I take them to get their nails done, I cook for them, I make fun snacks for them, I take them to Six Flags, I take them to the trampoline park. I listen to their problems, I put up with their bs, I let them stay up until 3:00am, I intervene...

If you have never tried AA and you are searching for something to help you stop, AA may be for you. I am going to describe my personal experiences. I am not writing this to discourage anyone from at least trying it out, it may save your life, but I also know I am not the only one who felt completely uncomfortable. I've been to 3 different locations to see if I could find a fit. This is how it went...

*Disclosure - I smoke sometimes when I drink, along with other bad choices...

(due to technical issues on site, posting late)

Body aches, sore throat, headaches, and fatigue and already I can tell you it's going to be a lot easier to manage since I am sober and feeling healthier lately. If I felt like I was getting sick, before getting sober, I may have taken the night off from drinking depending on how bad I felt. So when I didn't drink if I was too sick, I would always wake up the next day with a bit of pride for not drinking the night before. It didn't matter,...

Day 17 - Mary Jane

Posted 04-02-2017 at 12:20 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

*If you have an addiction to marijuana please do not read this blog.

I smoked weed a couple times a week when I was in my twenties to about twice a year in my thirties. Now, it's different and I'm about to tell you why. First of all, I'm very mindful of marijuana addiction. I just know I'm definitely not, only alcohol

We moved to Washington state and marijuana is legal here. There are weed stores next to every convenient store pretty much, and you don't...
