Shocker!

Last night I came to a frightening realisation. While the love of my life is the one with'the problem' I have been sitting on the side lines focusing on her and not taking much note of me. She is on day 6, and was having some minor withdrawels. I was also not feeling so bright. And then it struck me. I have been having one or two drinks every night to keep her company..............I have just as much of a problem. How easily we avoid our own issues and focus on someone else. Well now I need to be in the recovery forum as well. So gratefull that I have found theis safe place. All your stories and support is helping me see ME more clearly.

See ya in the newcomers forum.

Self-awareness is a great thing, but it sure hurts sometimes, lol.

good move charli,

it's hard to do right by anyone if you're not doing right by yourself.
