Hi all... i haven't posted much lately, doesn't mean I haven't lurked or thought about all the support here. Its been kind of a good news bad news things. The good news is, I am still sober, and actually liking it. I have had plenty of opportunity to sneak drinks, having alot of alone time, and i haven't felt tempted at all. I think its more than 6 weeks now. The doctor has tweaked my medications, and the shaking has decreased dramatically. The bad news is, my relationship is falling apart. We have been together over 8 years now, living together for 4... and i have realized that I dont really like her much, when I am sober. So, we dont talk, walk around each other, I am hoping she moves out pretty soon.. well, thats my update.. Thanks for all the support here..

Your sobriety is priority right now, Lost.

I know stress was a big trigger for me. Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can help you get through this.

It was hard for me to like others when my self respect was so low, and I was withdrawn from others and resented intrusion.

In time I realised others needed to protect themselves from my powerful negativity.

I am so grateful my wife stuck with me. When I improved, things improved- it took long time for the relationship to get back on track.

Hope it works out for you
