Salem,
I spent a good hour last night writing a reply to you, but everytime I tried to submit it, I got an error message stating my password was incorect (even though it was) I checked it and tried several times until my whole post just up and disappeared! errr..I was so mad, too mad to start over.
Anyway, I'll try to remember what I wrote and start over. Basically what I said is that I know in my heart that you are right. Before he gets more emotionally involved he deserves to know more about me, but at the same time, I just want a chance for him to get to know me for the person I am now, without all the baggage I once carried. I had pretty much resolved myself to the fact that the only men I would attract are addicts, not that it would be a bad thing if they had been clean for a long time, but people who have not experience addiction can be closed minded because they just don't understand!
I have dedicated 100% of my time over the past year with my 6 year old daughter. I have allowed her to spend with her father, as long as I see that he takes good care of her, leaving me with a lot more free time.
I know it will come out eventually in one way or another, becuase so far he hasnt asked me about this big fleshy scar I have on my forehead I received a year ago when I fell during one of my drunken episodes. It was exactly that last incident that made me decide to leave my ex, because I knew if I stayed with him anylonger it would have only been a matter of time before I would be 6 ft under.
Today I am going out and buying a box of nicotene gum. I have been taking Zyban now for almost a week, so guess its time to try. So wish me luck on hanging up the smokes too!
Thanks for the love and advice
Peace to you all
