almost dying but thankful for life now

You think deleting an account grass will be greener on the other side... well I can ensure you itís not
If your looking for answers itís not under a bottle
You think running away from your problems will work.... nope not when the problem is yourself
I think relapsing multiple times is a lot better then 6 feet under the ground
Going through this alone is impossible! Donít turn your back on people who care and support you instead embrace it
I thought deleting my account and not working on sobriety would been easy but after I deleted I part of hope in me was gone
I decided to stay back alone Friday until Sunday while family went visiting family down south I was posed to went to my late friends moms house to visit her and support her after losing a daughter to alcohol I never did make it last evening and why is that?? I started drinking....she became worried after not showing up or answering her calls she came to my house to find me unresponsive from alcohol poisoning waking up in a hospital is life changing Iím lucky to be here
Me and her had a talk I told her about this site and how I deleted she told me not a be a dumba!! And start another account which Iím glad she told me that she offer to pay for outpatient rehab and counseling which I gladly said yes Iím selfish to have done that to my family and Iím finally ready to change
I changed my username because itís a new me so goodbye Countrylife I hope Iím welcome back because I miss yíall and need you

Welcome back. It's so good to see you back. Sorry to hear about what happened to you but good to have you back. This can be the new start you need. SR helped me get sober last time and I will do it again with the support on here.

Welcome back Nichole. I am so glad you are ok....miracle huh? Your friend came and found you. There's a reason for that.....

Its interesting that deleting your old account, while really just an action, made you feel like you had cut off a life line. I can totally relate. I can't see closing my account here, even if I go a time without posting (which I have done....both when drinking and when sober).

Hang in there. You can do this.

I deleted my account cause I Iím pretty good at distancing myself from support i was feeding my AV and if I left my account open Iíd talk my self out of drinking I wasnít ready to get sober so I thought... but Iím pretty sure I hit my rock bottom only the only way is up I know itís not going to be easy and is going to be a long road!!! Now I know you canít undo 15 years of drinking over night but every day sober will starve my AV and weaken my addiction

Avoidance. Go in another room. Don't engage.

Is there a room you can go where he won't follow?

How are you doing now Nichole? I hope you got away from your husband and are ok. We can't change what others do just what we do in reaction to them
