hey there fellow Michigander!!!

Pour the rest out.

Switch up to Water.

Grab a notebook or journal and start writing a letter to yourself right now.

You can turn this around.

Bossy:

Perhaps you could consider getting rid of the vodka you have left and seeking help? Nothing will get better until you stop drinking...give yourself a fair chance at this.

If you fear problems with detox, I would recommend getting professional help. There may be low- or no-cost programs available nearby. Start making some phone calls!

It's so hard to stop, isn't it? I just kept disappointing myself, over and over. I had to physically remove myself from my situation to give myself a fighting chance. I checked myself in for hospital detox and then inpatient treatment. Going for detox was a lovely experience. I knew someone would look out for me. I was given medication and withdrawal wasn't bad. I could rest and sleep and not worry. For so long I hadn't taken care of myself that it was new and strange and wonderful being looked after.

Please consider it.

I am also a fellow Michigander (transplanted to Texas).

Pretty sure you can't be doing your phone job drunk for much longer. Drunks and work don't mix as a rule. Soooooooo.... detox still remains your first good option. Can hubby help you Bossybutt?

What area of Michigan are you in? Maybe I can help refer you somewhere.

I hope you can dump it out and just drink water for the rest of the day. Nothing good comes from drinking.

There are free and reduced cost detox options out there. Judging by some of your past posts and the medical issues you are already suffering from your drinking, you really may have no other choice.

Sorry you're going through this, bossy. I'm glad you wanted to talk about it though. I hope you'll keep posting. We all understand the challenges - and we can really help each other. You're not alone.

I just read a post of yours on another thread. Anorexia, neuropathy, fearing a fall in the shower. Sounds very much like me at the end.

You said medical detox isn't an option. Is that by choice or because of insurance? If by choice, I'd think again. If not by choice there are low or no cost options. How long do you think you will be able to function at all at this rate? Seriously. You won't be able to. Your life is more valuable than work.

I hope you dumped what you had or at the very least, you didn't go out for more.

Sorry for your troubles BB. I hope you are able to restart your sobriety tomorrow. I started mine again 2 days ago.

I don't think any drunk will pour it out once we start we already [email protected]$!$ Up. That would be impossible for me to do. It's not the bottle that's the problem it's the very first sip. Without the first sip you will never get to the 50th sip. This is my first post ;-)
