Just wanted to share that, For those who had seen my posts know I have been treating for Hep C over the last 41 weeks. I had gotten to a point on 8-2-2013, where at I went into total melt down. I lost sight of what I was fighting for and out of desperation drank and by doing so found myself in the ER, my mental state had become an issue and wither or not I could continue this battle.
After I dusted myself off, and considered how horrible I must have sounded to those who truly love me, and have stood with me through out this battle, how could I be so hurtful. You see being an alcoholic/addict for 40+ years, that has come to know, for me it is a matter of choice, drink or not, use or not, but more importantly live or not. True I am a hardliner....I fully believe it is a matter of choice, and yet if I am open and honest with not only myself but another human being, I am destined to make the same bad choices.
Sober 35 days.......Needle free 21 years, 56 days.
