back again


well here I am again

I really didn't think I was an alcoholic . I know I am a drug addict and I have been clean from the drugs for over five years . About 6 or 8 mounths ago I decided to have a beer . I figured alcohol was never my problem so it was ok . It did seem ok for the last 6 mounths . Until 2 nights ago I blacked out 8 cop cars were at my house I guess I wanted to kill myself that was all after I tore my house apart . For anyone that has been sober for a while I am a prime example why alcohol doesn't work even after a bit of time .
