Dear M,

Please realize that people only post what they are comfortable with.

The information that you posted is sort of vague in nature; is there anything specific that you have in mind?

Take care.

Phoenix

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

Thank you Phoenix! I understand what you are saying. I don't even know if I am comfortable asking the questions that I have.

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

Dear M,

Know that I respect your decision either way.

Also know that if you do share, you will not be judged but treated with the utmost of respect.

Take care.

Phoenix

Please, feel free to sit, type, talk etc!
Even if you are not comfortable yet talking or sharing about yourself, please feel free to join in our conversations!
No matter what the vice may be, we are all going through a very rough time! ANd we all benefit from words of encouragement and especially from Spark's Jokes!! (read his posts- and you will get a good laugh)

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

Thank you so much guys! I really don't feel I have anyone to talk to about it. In reality I do, but I don't want share something like this with others. I am afraid of judgement. I am the type that fixes and cares for everyone else. I am considered "Super Mom" by others and I don't want to let people down. Anyway I will jump into the conversations slowly!

Thanks All,
Mommaoftwinsplus1

Dear M,

I heard somewhere that "slow but steady wins the race."

Take care.

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

Hi mom of twins plus 1.
If it helps, you've helped me...I've been scanning this sight so often, and so rarely I find someone discussing problems with alcohol. I'm also, a super mom, plus two, functioning fine apparently, but wake up looking forward to that first sweet drink. Tentatively stepping towards who knows what, but knowing i'm a poor example...I hope you see this.

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

There's one thing for sure...you're DEFINATELY in the right place!! These boards - and more importantly the people on them - have been an absolute salvation to me....(more than once embarrasingly enough)!! As you are Super Mom, I am Super Dad (single w/ six of 'em), and have had my own battles with the booze. It is definately not easy, but stick around here for a while....you'll surely find the help and support you need.
So welcome....there are a TON of good eggs here to help you thru this!!

Re: Is this the place for alcohol users?

Hi mama
Alcohol is alcohol and a drug is a drug and alcohol is a drug, It's a big bag of don't want to do it anymore. I started drinking in my teens, then went to drugs, then to drinking, then to both, then to none, then to pills, then to alcohol, then to both, then to none, and here I am, cleaning off the dust, clearing my side of the street, watching I don't fall in any more potholes. Staying clean and sober is the most important thing in my life. I pray every morning to stay away and I say my thank-yous at the end of each day. Sick n tired and more of the sick n tired, I pray to stay in the past. Do you have any kind of a support group? someone you can talk too, someone you can get honest with, someone you can share with, a friend, a doctor, a group, a family member, a teddy-bear, this board is very safe, we are here for you.
take care
kadee

Thank you Kadee...I have support, if I am brave enough. I just keep things to myself! I hope I can "open up" on this board!
