I'm gonna keep this short for the moment. I struggle with myself and I struggle with alcohol and somehow that has got confusedly intermixed. I find it confusing and I'm sure those around me do too.I have gone sober before, not even sure for how long for - January and February this year for starters. I gave up wine for a whole year about 6 yrs back, replaced it with vodka. I've rung help lines, addiction clinics, been to government programme counsellors, been to AA, been to a female support group, prescribed antabuse. I reckon I probably started trying to deal with my problem about 8yrs back, recognising I had one about 10 yrs ago.
I guess I am what you all highly functioning though nothing could be further from the truth. I have so much more to give. Oh and this is me "keeping it short" :)
