Hi Frank,

Sorry to state the obvious- Re: honest w/counselor ....
anyway, that's a real catch 22 - either be sick with the crud or feel better and possibly want to drink. Jerry had posted some great insight about cravings on Saint's thread - maybe you could take a gander at those.
6 hours is a long way to drive for counseling, does it have to be VA services? There are some great counselors with local/county MH/SA programs. Seeking a professional closer to you, logistically, would be ideal. ( I know this is another no brainer ) but I guess I am asking if you could consider private or even county services.

I will ask you on OT thread about OR. Coast - sounds very interesting!

Well, I do hope you and wife are feeling better soon. Take care, Carly
