Default Alibis

How do we manage to come up with such elaborate alibis to conceal our dependence?
I feel particularly upset today, hence the three consecutive posts. A lot on my mind. I feel like such a loser that I cant seem to kick this. Sometimes I'd rather be dead...no I don't have any plans to harm myself...I am in the bed with my lovely snoring husband with baby in the next room -- snoring as well..But it is extremely difficult to keep going on like this...yet I can't stop. It seems more compulsive than coke, pot, heroine, meth--but maybe I am not in a position to say b/c I have not tried those substances. But alcohol is sooo accessible. It's impossible not to pass 2 package stores on my way home, and that includes using a detour.

I am working on getting some answers for you - I started that thread about how others have done it. You sound like you are giving up before you have even given it a shot . You just got your meds yesterday - would it help to wait to start this weekend?

I am writing out my story but I have to write it on Word in case I get logged out.

I't very difficult.I am crying. My hands and my lip trembled so much today at work it was embaressing, when I told my husband he said go have a drink.
Honestly I have not had a chance to pick up the meds. I plan to get it tomorrow so I can take it during the long weekend.
Looking forward to responses.

You really need to find someone knowledgeable about addiction outside the home to talk with seriously, I hope you are considering looking.
