Support

29 Dec

I’m about to go away with friends for 5 days, and I wrote an email so stupidly honest, it made me weep.

And it turns out they love me: + depression – booze. Still. 

I am lucky.

    Wonderful! Still won’t be easy, but how great you told your friends so that they will be looking out for you.

    Hello!

    I’m sorry I haven’t been around to offer words of support – I had sporadic access while away and am just now properly catching up on the blogs. But I echo all the words of support you’ve gotten here about how excellent it is that you’ve pulled yourself right back up; how brave and smart you are to be doing this so young; and how much progress you are still making. You’ve learned some valuable lessons and dusted yourself off and moved on and are reaching out, being honest, trying again. That’s exactly what you need to do. You haven’t let this spiral you back into weeks, months of destructive drinking. Hooray for that!

    There’s no one right, perfect way to do this sobriety thing. I do believe it’s a huge learning process and everyone’s path, while very similar in many ways, takes different twists and turns.

    I’m proud of you for how you’re handling this. I hope the break away is great, the friend’s supportive, and Wolfie dead silent. Keep sharing.

      Thank you Lily- just wrote on your blog, it’s all a learning process indeed.

      But Carrie suggested I email ahead of going away because I was worried, and it’s been a HUGE weight off my shoulders.

      It turns out if you have the right people around you, honesty works. People respect you for it. And they only want to help.

      And I count you in the Right People list- you’ve helped me so much. Glad to have you back, we’ve missed you 🙂
