Nick thank you for your Frank and honest account, you too Suze.

You guys love each other and unfortunately it doesn't mean we're given rose coloured glasses. You're both too grounded for that.

You've had a massive bump in the road to climb, where normally we'd just step over them this was so large you had to climb and scramble.

Guess what, you both managed it. It's a very hard learning curve, but you did it.

Time to not dwell too much on it, you keep looking in the rear mirror you miss what's in front of you!

Give and show respect for each other, I know you did!

Everyone loves you here. We're not qualified to judge, we've all been there in one form or another. Don't beat yourselves up. You don't deserve that.

Keep coming here, please. It's good for you both and good for us. We're a family

Much love and prayers to you both, Nick and Suze

❤...just ❤

Thank you so much for honestly sharing your stories and struggles. It may be none if our business, but if it helps just one person to help themselves you have done a great service.

Suze and Nick, Mags said it beautifully, just what I wanted to express, but could never have done so in such an eloquent fashion.
Love and respect yourselves and each other.
Thinking of you.

I love planting trees and watching them grow. Back in 2003 I planted an elm. It was only a little stick, five feet high. Fourteen years later it soars into the sky, nearly 60 feet tall or more than that. its branches stretching all over the place .
Recovery from addiction is like a tree. Growing bit by bit but, as time passes, growing faster, exponentially. Occasionally, when the winds blow hard, losing a limb or two, but that loss only strengthens the other branches.
Be like a tree. Shout your happiness into the sky. When the wind blows, be careful, so you become a shelter to other little trees, just starting to grow, as you did long ago.

Bill.

I recall back in 1958, having blood pressure of 210/130. The 130 (diastolic) is the really frightening one. I mentioned this to a doctor years later and his only remark was "That's a real killer"). Literally. Amazing I survived at all since it took me 30 more years to begin complete sobriety. Didn't try AA (Doctors at that time sometimes didn't even suggest trying it; one said, "Well there may be aspects about it that you would not like...." I asked him to be more specific. He was only evasive.) And of course in those days there was no SR. One thing is clear to me now. The first step is the big one. Whether you are into AA or not. At least half or more of the challenge is in the beginning of real sobriety. What's the best, maybe the only, way to get the sufficient motivation? Maybe only when you feel the hand of death resting on your shoulder and you hear a soft voice saying, "Come! It's time for you now! We've been expecting you!"
