You can't stop drinking, smoking, or doing drugs for anyone but yourself. You can love the other person more than anything.......but if you don't love yourself, you will continue to be addicted. I have seen it too many times. With my grandmother, aunts, my own mother and now myself with ciggarettes. I have to want and need to change for myself. It's just the facts of life. When the person running to the alcohol sees how it is hurting them, they will quit. Does it sound selfish? Yes it is. Is it human? Yes it is. The person running to the drink is first running FROM something..........So, let's first figure out the thing they are running from, heal that and then prepare for the battle. Yes battle. It is not easy. Love is not easy. Life is not easy. Death is not easy. Sickness is not easy. Nothing is easy. Noone is perfect. And alcohol is NOT a friend. It is an enemy to your soul. It is the great PRETENDER it is the great LIAR. It continues to take you around in circles. You never know where you are going, where you have been. It's the kind of friend that brings up all your failures. All of your weaknesses. It never tells you how special you are or how forgiven you are. This friend never shows up to comfort you only to bring you down. We don't need friends like that..........now do we?

LOL...Syqg we are chasing each other around on this site. Alcoholism is the gift that keeps on giving..as children of alcoholics there is a genetic predisposition to the addiction. I believe that I am the only sibling that possesses it to the NTH degree. I know why I started to drink...i just can't seem to cut the embilical cord that keeps me hooked.
