Family are so Helpful


All I was ever told. Well, screamed at is "You need to sort it out. Get yourself together."

No one ever asked what the problem was or why?

I told my Mother that I was giving up drinking.

Her response "It's your Birthday next week. Are you not going to drink?".

Me : "No."

Her : "Well, you will be boring then."


Unbelievable!! I am dying!!!

Pay them no mind. If you need to quit, quit. Tell the: I'm sorting it out, getting myself together.

Yeah I didn't really get much support or understanding from many of my family either, I guess unless the have lived through it, it's tough to see things from our point of view.

But SR is full of people that get it!!

I am just ignoring everyone for the time being.

Just staying on here. Not trying to build bridges, etc. Just yet. It's only Day 3.
