In the beginning...
My family drank and they built our life's around it;
My family drank and I wanted nothing to do with it;
My family drank and pushed me toward it.

Then it started...
I drank and swore my life to it;
I drank and put my life on hold because of it;
I drank and it ate the life from all around it.

Then it stopped...
And I owe my life to it. Ti

Thank god you stopped in time. I've heard that it is hard to give up the booze. Good on you!

Thank you! Yes, it is hard to stop drinking, just like smoking or any other bad habbits. Losing all your friends and family and your life style is what is hardest when quiting drinikng.

Hey!!! Who told you my life story??!!

I haven't given up totally, but am not even close to drinking like my parents did....never have been & never will be. My family, unlike other Alcoholic families, was blessed by no violence and alot of love, I think that is how my sister's & I kept our sanity. Well, they did anyway! heheh!

Congrats on slaying that dragon!

The dragon may be slayed, but it is not dead. (I happen to love dragons and do not see them as evils) The desire drifts up from the bowels of hell at times, urging me to indulge. I knew nothing else but drinking until I was 30. My entire childhood evolved around drinking in one way or another. We would go camping when was I very young. I can recall having more beer than anything else with us. We would run out of food or snacks or even water, but my father had his beer. He would have one first thing in the morning and never stop.

WOW those are some powerful words You should truly post these in every Substance Abuse class and Detox that you can

Thank you for posting this

I was raised in an alcoholic abusive (in all manners) home. My Father was the drinker, today my syblings and I are NOT! I am glad for how I was raised, for it makes me a better person, made me who I am today It has also been the drive that keeps me from turning to S.A.

It is also the main drive that is continually telling me to get my license to help those who cannot see why drinking IS NOT good and how much more chaos in causes instead of helping or aiding

Thank you for you, for having the courage to see, understand, realize, face and fight that demon daily For having the courage to stand up and say it here

Hugs, smooches, and smiles sweetie
