I am a 50 year old wife, teacher and mother of 2. I have a 19 year old son and a 23 year old daughter. I am fighting this damn drug called alcohol. I have been a weekend binge drinker for 30 years. I binge 2-3 times a month on a Friday or Saturday, but alcohol kicks my butt every single day of my life. I am sick of it!

From October 29
So let me get this right. Are you saying that I am not a loser, a failure, weak, wishy-washy? Are you saying that I may have a disease that I am powerless against IF I CHOSE TO DRINK? That I will never be able to control it, never be able to drink like other people? Never be able to have a beer in the sunshine? Never be able to have a glass of wine with spicy spaghetti sauce? But I used to - I haven't always been like this. I had a few years when I hardly drank anything. I had a few years where I drank normally. Are you saying that I can't ever get that back? Are you saying that the only true power I have is when I chose to give it up forever?
