Hello Gmasusie,

I believe it is Rlee that says " sometimes we have more drinking to do" ... in a sense that sounds harsh, judgmental and not empathetic... but I think there is so much truth and understanding in that statement. We are either done with the pain and hardship alcohol brings or we are not. I'm sure you've heard the saying - change happens when the pain of current behaviors/circumstances outweighs the pain of change. For me I reached a point where said I will stop an any cost... no matter how hard, painful or life changing it is, I will stop!

I do not offer that as an excuse to continue drinking... but as a matter of encouragement for you to decide to change before the pain (physical, emotional, relational) is so great that that you have to.

Just my thoughts as a fellow soldier in the battle for sobriety.

Blessings!
