In for the subscription. Pretty rough the last few days. My wife has been a real bear and I am just getting tired of it. Quit drinking, work pretty hard around the house, hardly set around doing nothing. Seems I can't say anything anymore without a ****** response. I can't win. 14 years together and not sure if we are going to survive.
Have been thinking real hard about abandoning this sobriety thing and not even sure I want talked out of it anymore. Just trying to be honest!

You all are GREAT!

Sobriety one day at a time makes marevellous sense.....

Blue days, if not renewed days must be well endured days~~~

For decades of quite problematic stuff I used the booze as a quick fix.
It suceededed in quickly making the whole deal so much worse.
Think carefully before any too rash decisions.

I'm so sorry ~ that is tough. And does not seem fair at all.
I'm thinking your wife may be struggling a little without the support you have here, and have chosen for yourself.

From what you said, it sounds like she is not open to face to face support groups....perhaps you might like to go to an Alanon meeting.
A lot of folks there deal with this all of the time, and you might find some very specific support and advice.

Just a thought....no matter what, you have us. Always. We are here for you. So much love.

As for letting your sobriety go ~ I don't think that's what you want. ♥♥

Well, I am here in the parking lot. Just got done with a 40 minute phone conversation with my wife. We made progress I suppose. She did talk me down from going inside to buy that beer. I am back to my senses and heading home. Sorry for posting that moment of weakness but thanks for being there SR!

Sometimes life just SUCKS!

No need to be sorry love....not ever.
We are all here for each other, and being honest about what's going on is always a good thing.

So glad you got through that.

More love. ♥

Hang in there Quitter. Every day feels different. That's change and it's uncomfortable and messy sometimes. Breaking free though, is so much better in the end.

Another 24 hours please....I'd like to see tomorrow night's moon and look back on a lovely day.

It's....6:55 pm here in San Diego, California.

Love to all ~
Lillian
