Thumbs up TOPIC: Was There W/ Tree Talkers

Hi Im Sharon and Im an alcoholic.

By the grace of my HP and people
like you here in SR I havent found
it necessary to pick up a drink of
"POISON" since 8-11-90.

For that and you I am truely grateful.

During my drinking career i didnt
realize how much damage I was
doing to my body or mind.

I went about drowning myself in
self pity, low self esteem and fear.

Feb of 1990 less than a mile
away from my home I ran off
the road hitting a concrete culvert
sitting on top the ground send-
ing me to the hospital via the
back of an EMS.

A 10 day stay with numerous
contusions, broken ribs and my
spleen removed, it took only a
few months to heal with help
from pain pills and no alcohol.

With missing the drink terribly,
I resumed right were i stopped
off in early Feb. This time i hit
bottom in Aug 1990.

Family stepped in not knowing
what to do with me. A suggestion
was to send me to a hospital via
the back seat of a police car.

That first night i spent on the
bottom floor with people shuffling
across the floor. People hugging
the wall. Those mumbling and
talking to themselves.

I was scared to death as my
eyes roamed the room. Im not
like these people i thought to
myself. I felt so sad for them
as i could tell that they were
mental patiants.

The next day i passed all mental
and physical test and their
conclusion of my situation was
one with a drinking problem. In
other words, an alcoholic.

The next 28 days i stayed in
rehab recieving the tools and
knowledge of my disease of
alcoholism.

Today some 19 yrs of many
one days at a time collected
together, i am so grateful for
what transpired back then
because im more knowledgeable,
wiser and a stronger person.

Passing on my experiences
strengths and hopes to all
that wish to listen.
