Well, I was a point 4 and hopeless. I kept thinking to myself its no use and what is the point of trying again. With support I tried it again, this time the last.
I am home for a month and doing well. Can I say that I never think about alcohol, NO. Do I have cravings, again NO. I really think this time I may have finally gotten it though this thick skull that there is a better way. I wake up in the morning feeling good and ready to take on the day. I do have depression but I care for that with therapy. Is it instantaneous, again I have to say NO. But it helps.
I found the most important thing is to have a support group. Someone you can call just to shoot the breeze and/or say I’m struggling. It really is hour by hour and sometimes minute by minute. But……We can do it.
