ES, I'm going to give yourself the benefit of the doubt and hoped you had something positive in that message. Although if you did I don't understand it. Done. Its buried.

Malialoke, I am guessing that I am one of hundreds if not more to how proud we are of you. Your story is a not so subtle reminder of what the alcohol can do to us. I've been on this site for quite some time, both as a member and as a "lurker". Your story woke me up. I read it in the early AM before I went to work. In fact, for anyone reading, I wake up for work an extra 45 minutes early so I can log on to SR and do my best to keep going.

Am I perfect? absolutely not, will I ever be perfect? Nope. That being said, SR has helped me control my life in a way that before was not controllable. I assure everyone that I will not pass away from alcohol or drugs. Because if I was going to pass away in that manner, it would have happened by now.

Stress may kill me, alcohol will not. Drugs. If you do them, stop. 2 cents.

I have no idea what this even means. Strange. At any rate, malia, thank you for sharing your story. Your share could definitely save lives and also keep relapses at bay for those who still fantasize that they can moderate their alcohol intake.
