    Children of Alcoholics

    Hi everybody and thank you, thank you so much for the posts. I am so grateful.
    :h:h
    That was days and days worth of the most violently horrible feelings but here's the Good News:
    My husband called Larry her husband yesterday (they are also good friends) and the upshot is Kristin is now in out patient rehab and AA. She is a ' complete wreck' as she realizes what she did to my children which I know had she been sober she wouldn't have done. She is using her church community to stay with her in the evenings and her parents when her husband is out of town.

    Larry told my husband that if she were to EVER went back to AL he would end the marriage and take the children. I believe him completely. He has dealt with this too long. Our families were (are...) very close. He has had enough.
    I think you are right Cash, this was her absolute Bottom. In a weird way it was mine too...
    My kids are fine. In fact I am keeping the girls updated (in little girl terms) because they do love her and they are very pleased and proud that they are responsible (as I have explained it) for helping Ms Kristin get healthy again o we can 'see her big heart again' as one of my twins said.
    I think that says it all.
    So I'm tired as you can imagine but all the supps are really helping as did all the support from here ...as usual.

    If I gave up on all the friends I have who may have a problem with AL then I probably wouldn't have many friends. I know you have some other probs like mine honey - feel free to email me blacksheep@internode.on.net

    And thank you so much Cash. I think we do have one of the same challenges. And 2 heads are better than one!

    My dad was an alcoholic. He wouldn't come home, but I was young and didn't really know... Until he decided to commit suicide in our garage.... I was 9. I was told he had a heart attack... But I always knew something worse.. People tip toed around... I was always a high achiever... Now I have a problem w alcohol at 42... Luckily I am getting help... In the 1970's and80's men didn't seek help. I have young kids... And I want to break the cycle... Haven't drank in a week... Start outpatient this week! Yeah
