I'm ashamed

Left the web - been drinking.

What can I say - I'm back. Where's Mungo?

I haven't seen Mongo in a bit.
Why don't you PM him?

I hope you're ok. Glad you're back.
You can do this.

Hi Jane, good to see you again.

I've not been posting much either as I've been struggling also.

I think the important thing to to get back to where we want to be. The periods of sobriety we did have are ours to keep, and we can use these positive experiences to help us achieve our goals.

Good luck to you. Please keep posting here if you feel it will help.

It's not Mungo as in Mary Mungo and Midge, it's Mongo the big friendly guy from Blazin Saddles.

In shame, explains Lewis, the very self is "rotten and no good." That's why intense feelings of shame can actually drive people into shameless behavior, such as jealous rage.” (or deeper into addiction)

I believe in the importance of a healthy self-concept and one way for me to maintain one is to understand the power of self talk. Just as positive self-talk can help build confidence, negative self-talk can tear it down. Negative self-talk can make things seem more difficult than they are.

What I believe about myself as a human being verses my behavior can make or break my efforts to follow a healthy life style in the face of adversity.

With that said and as well said by others here at SR: let go of the shame or it will hold you down.
