Making better choices in 2012


I joined this site last June and managed 3 months dry, then the old devil voice came back - " you're on holiday, you can have a drink and keep it under control". What LIES, 2 months later another attempt, successful for a few weeks and then back to the bottle until 2 days ago (yay!).
In that time I have publicly disgraced myself several times, including smashing my face up by falling flat on it when lost in a blackout on the London tube after a few after work drinks, been warned about losing my job, watched my alcoholic ex husband start to drink again after 5 years of sobriety and felt unable to say a thing about it....oh I could go on and on.
Quite frankly I thank the Lord for keeping me alive to even see 2012.
I have another chance - this time I cannot listen to the lies. My life depends on it.

Westie - you can do it this time and leave all those bad days far behind you. I gave it up after drinking my whole adult life - and I know you can, too. You're not alone in this - we all understand how you're feeling, and we're on your side.

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.
