Welcome back Sax 🙂
I found I got as far as I could with trying…then I had to widen my net and try and get more support, because I just couldn’t do it on my own.
What support have you tried in the past?
what support are using now?

So much in my life is different to how it was when I first found these boards though, but l am still me :/
Hi Saxony, This is what stood out to me.
You know honey, that is true for me too. So much has changed, some bad and some good, some excellent. It was only the other day, I was feeling so sad, crying as I was driving to work. Sometimes, things just get on top of me, ya know.
I starting talking to myself, ‘ok jo, then do something about it’ ‘its ok jo, you can work it out’ Its amazing when I do this, how all of a sudden things dont seem as bad as I think. See, I tend to be one of those people who always has to do things ‘myself’ but I have learnt that there are people who will help, all I have to do is ask. I dont have to be in this big wide world alone, like I use to think.
I really dont have to think about stuff I cant control, all I have to do is put it in perspective, ya know, like, ok, my sister died, I cant change that, so I remember all the fun times we had and know she is safe. I work way too much in my business for far too long, it is draining me, so I am moving closer and cutting hours back. I havent seen one of my sons for so long (long story), I call his number and leave text msgs, he doesnt reply. Thats all I can do, i tell myself he will contact me when he is ready.
Sorry for blabbering on, but what I am trying to say is that I can let things drag me down, and stay the same and be miserable, or I can call it as it is.
So keep coming back haha, as you said, no matter what is going on with you, there is always someone to help, ok honey!

Good going! I found that just like everything else in my life including alcohol and drug addiction recovery, if I wanted it bad enough, I had to have a plan and take action.
Good effort and good planning got this drop down drunk a new way to live…sober and it can happen to you.
