I'm in trouble.

Just when I get things straightened out I do something to screw it up. Why? No clue. Leaving now for awhile, be back in 4-5 hours.

What's up Jeff?
I was just thinking, you and me both, haha.
Whatever is going on, keep strong. You'll figure it out. And you know where we are when and if you need a boost in morale.

Ahhh well. Just because we get sober, doesn't mean we get perfect or that life doesn't keep happening.

Just try to do then next right thing, and put right what you messed up if possible, and if you can't put it right think how to make amends.

Progress not perfection.

Hope things straighten out for ya. BB

So I'm pretty full and I am not sure what to say that this point. Must get back on the train tomorrow. If you want to blast me, go for it.

You're being very vague Jeff.
Did you drink - or what?

I was worried when you left that cryptic message earlier (first post.)

Sounds like you decided to have some drinks.

That's how the whole mess gets going again.


Ask me how I know.

Prayers for your ability to start on sobriety again. Tomorrow.

What happened? Are you OK? Nobody is going to blast you. This is your safe haven here. Let it all out. Lots of open ears and comfort for you.

Thomas, it was important for me to learn something about alcohol and alcoholism -

I thought that drinking "made" one alcoholic. In other words, because I drank so much I was an alcoholic.

It took a while to understand my thinking was backwards.

The truth was similar, but opposite: BECAUSE I'm alcoholic, I drink to much / more than I want / when I don't want to.

The solution to the first one is simple - drink less and/or don't drink. For the second, it's a little deeper. The answer is to seek a solution to the alcoholism and, when that's accomplished, the excessive drinking is solved by default.

Maybe you're an alcoholic..........and that's why you continue to "screw it up" once you've stopped for a while?
