Very true Spirit, a lot of soul searching and no vodka. Thanks for your support

I'm sure that your embarrassment from all of this causes you to shy away from that idea but you could really hurt yourself. Death is a real possibility when battling the demon that is alcohol. Please consider the idea need. You deserve a better life than alcohol will allow you to have.
Thank you. I do see a therapist already. He is really great. He has wanted me to stop drinking or at the very least cut back for awhile now. I am so ashamed that i canceled my app with him this week as i felt i could not face him and tell him i did it again! I am so worn out. This has to stop. Does anyone have a link to AA meetings? I know i can look it up, but really i am so worn down right now i dont even think i can do it. Thanks.

Good luck with everything. I haven't had time to post much, but am still thinking of everyone. Hope you all have a good day.

Well Marchers, another one bites the dust... Within the past year I have lost two family members and found out that four others are doing poorly. Tonight, another one has gone to the other side a mere week since my return home. The worst part? His only son found him when he stopped in to check up on him. I just want to cry for him. I remember when my father passed and I know how he feels... Dark days my friends, dark days...

Sorry for your loss Djinn. It's so hard. So sad to find them too. Shame he couldn't have been there to help him pass.

Between June 2013 and August 14 2014 I lost seven (my side and my husbands side), both our dad's, favorite uncle, my dad's entire family (3) wiped out within months of each other, brother to cancer and nephew to drugs. Bad bad bad.

Take care

Olivia

Sorry to hear Spirit. I'm in my mid-40's and haven't really lost many relatives comparatively speaking. But my mom isn't doing well and is never far from my mind. Plus they live in another state, which makes it worse.

Thanks Bobcat! I read all threads. Guess I should stay out of the monthly clubs. I mean that in a sincere way. When I see a comment that really gets my attention, I comment. I like looking at how people are growing in their recovery. Hope it's ok that I popped in. Thanks for the welcome also!

Thanks Marchers. I know my last post was really grim and I apologize. But I know I can come here for support in all things because this is a great group of people that care. Couldn't have made a better decision than to March along with you all.

I found out yesterday that my uncle's service is Wednesday. I'm going but not for him so much as for my cousins. I know how they must feel and I want to be there for them to lean on. It's the least I could do.

As for me, I'm 76 days sober and counting, have some interviews coming in the next week or so, and I may be buying property soon. Now if I could just get my novel fully underway I'd be right as rain.

Thanks Marchers for being here. I wish you all the very best and I hope to hear from you soon.
