I've posted this song/video a few times... I hope it helps you like it did me almost 9months ago. I'm not 100% on your backstory,but have read most your threads. Please don't take this as me judging you! I think you need to be honest with those around you..Your family and friends.. "come out", if you will..You need some support..rehab perhaps? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foj3lB7vtDo

Mummyto2, In my first despairing days you reached out to me and the impact of your kind words and the help & support of all who reached out with advice , encouragement and hope have truly pushed me to be where I am now. This is where you can be again too. Listen to those much wiser than me. It is never too late, you can do this. Be a little kinder to yourself, dust yourself down and start again. I know how you're feeling I've been there,it will get better. Take care, Sweepeacan

Sorry that things are tough right now. Please don't make it any worse by beating yourself up. You have been very supportive of others on SR, including me. You deserve a better life. I really hate alcohol right now, I hate addiction and the power it can have. You got away for from it for many weeks. You can do it again.
Support to you.....

Mummyto2, hang in there. I thought I was hopeless. I did try to commit suicide. I turned it all around with the help of the awesome people here, AA and therapy. You can too. I promise.

A slip is just that, a slip.
Think we have all done it, one time or another.
Come on back and start again.
You can do it.

Please don't give up Mummy. If you slipped, it's okay. Breathe. Try again tomorrow. It's not the end of the world.

I hope you check in with us soon. <3

I'm 59 and today is day 600.

YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN DO THIS.

Don't let one slip mess you up. Remember, all the crappy feelings and thoughts you're having right now are caused by alcohol.

And it always lies.

Shake yourself off and begin again.

How do I know? Because you've done it before. Xx

I recently slipped after 9 months sober, the mental anguish we go through is horrible. But we both came back here and posted/read so we must want sobriety more than falling back down the hole of hell drinking leads to.
Try to be kind to yourself, you had lots of daily wins and recently one loss. This battle can seem impossible at times and your only human
Get back on the horse and this slip will make you stronger.
You know you can do it xx

Mummy.

Noone old you this would be easy. It is not. Especially at the start. BUT...

hang on....

BUT

It does get easier with time. You just need to push past this first bit of shitness. Why?? Well, you know what it at stake better than we do.

I want you to play to tape forward now - that means imagine you drink now. What happens NEXT. And next. And next?

What happens to your name-sakes? What happens to your dignity. Your self-respect? You have too much to lose.

Check those HALT Triggers.... are you Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?

I'm betting at least one is the case. Probably two.

Deal with those things first, then in an hour or so see how ya feel.

These cravings are so intense at the start it feels like they'll never pass - but they truly do.

Hang in there. You CANdo this. I'be known grandmothers to come to AA to get sober and manage it. They had YEARS on you.

Come on lady. You CAN do this.

xx

Mummy, all those sober days you have are still there! Hang on to them! Don't let a slip derail you. Pick yourself up, dump out the booze and you will start to feel better. Don't dwell on your mistakes, focus on your accomplishments! Look at what you're capable of! Look at how many love and care for you and how
many you have helped with your kind words and heart. You can do this. Keep the faith, mummy.

Regroup and refocus. We will not give up!
