First drink age 12. Last drink age 39. A whole lot of pain in between. The hardest part about stopping alcohol or drug abuse is not putting down the drink or drug its not picking up a drink or a drug.
From the very first time I felt the effects of alcohol I knew I was in trouble not because I loved it or it made me feel like super human it just made me feel ok. There were not to many failures or circumstances that life could deal out that would trump the feeling of having to feel ok. No failures in school no DUIs no Jail no job no relationship failures would come in between myself and feeling ok.
I am not a horrible person I have a horrible disease. the stage of where everyone has written you off and the poor choices you have made begin to define your legacy on this planet. When everyone near and dear to you says why wont he/she just stop and under any and all conditions you still continue to use then welcome to hell. To go thru life with a plastic bag pulled down tight over your face and the only way your brain tells you to breathe is to use welcome to hell.
I am 12 years sober of any mind altering chemical this is possible and there is a way out you as a family member need to get out of your own way and do something extraordinary. The start of this process is to get very comfortable being uncomfortable.
