Thank you for all the support, I truly am overwhelmed with joy that there are ladies out there just like me. This is my first time in long term residential treatment for pills and alcoholism. I previously had 2 years sobriety and relapsed almost till death this last time. I want this so much, I believe and trust in the Lord with all my might. I want to meet my Maker sober!!! I have hurt so many people, especially my 18 year old daughter. She has suffered so, she is so glad that I am in treatment. I now have 6 months clean and that is a good thing. For the first time I am doing it for myself, before I did it because everybody else wanted me to, this time it is for me. I have never been in jail, but as my previous sponsor use to tell me, "just put "YET" as the end of that sentence! I almost died, I had alcohol poisoning five times the legal limit, I became so isolated and couldn't even get to work in the mornings the prior weeks before my admission, unless I took Vicadin and Somas and a drink of rum & coke. Since I have been sober I have gained weight, but people tell me not to worry about that. I thought I was "independent" and a functioning alcoholic (like my father) because I still kept my job. Look where I am now though. I lost my job and my car that I had paid on for 5 years has been reposessed. I am sad. Sometimes I get scared thinking that I can NEVER touch those things (alcohol and pills) that I depended on so much. I would like some input on how others have done it. I know it is "One Day at a time", yet my mind wonders. Please help. I appreciate all of you responding. God bless. Victoria

Wow, 6 months clean is awesome, give yourself a well deserved pat on the back! You will have success in beating it this time because, as you said, you are now doing it for YOURSELF and not for anyone else. My biggest addiction is cigarettes but I'm sure you'll get more relevant responses here.

Welcome to the site and continue to post, you will receive good feedback and support as you travel on your new journey in life, to a free, healthy and strong YOU. Keep up the great progress!

Hi Vickitoria: From what I know I don't think you can touch the pills and alcohol ever again. You've got 6 months behind you and that's a good start but its gonna be day to day for the rest of your life when you decide to make that committment. I used to be quite a drinker and did my share of the other stuff and I just don't like it anymore. I had wine last night at a dinner party and I felt like crap today. I just hate the hangovers and since I rarely drink anymore, it really affects me. I think its like an allergy to alcohol. Congrats to you. Sd
