    I don't know how many times I've tried to post over the last few days. I'm struggling big time at the moment. This site saved me when I found it at the end of April and helped me to get 42 Af days under my belt. What a difference a few weeks makes. I've lost dad nearly 3 weeks ago, my mam's an alcoholic who's been slowly killing herself for the last 5 years and couldn't care less about anything or anyone and here I am, back to square one - and following in her footsteps. I was prepared to lose mam, built myself up really, thats what she wanted, but not my dad, I miss him so much. I'm just not functioning without a glass in my hand. My husband is so lovely and supportive yet I won't let him anywhere near me. Newbies in need was my lifeline and now I just feel I don't belong there anymore, don't know if I belong on this site really. Its my son's 21st tomorrow and I'm trying to put him first and make it a great day but its such an effort. I'm sorry for this, for this ramble.

    Janice, so sorry to hear you are struggling. I remember all of your posts back in April/May and you made such progress. You can do it again! I hope you will stay on the MWO site and keep posting. You have had a terrible loss and have lots of stress, but you will get back on track, if a little at a time.

    Lots of folks have been wondering about you. Please keep us in the loop and please come back!!!

    Janice, of course you belong here............you need us just as we need you.

    I can`t offer words of wisdom, as I`ve grown up only knowing one parent, my mum..........we are best friends and I can`t bear to think that one day I will lose her..........I can`t begin to imagine the depth of your pain. I do think that you`ll ache for your dad for a long time to come, but with each passing day you will begin to heal.

    You need time to grieve.........yes, you have a drink problem and you were doing so well AF, but life has dealt you a cruel blow...........please don`t give yourself a hard time about drinking...........if it helps to have a little, then have a little, but don`t overdo it.........your dad loved you and wouldn`t want for you to steep yourself in booze to overcome your sadness, for only time will do that.

    In your heart you can dedicate your boy`s 21st to your dad..........give them both a day to remember.

    Am sending you all my love and prayers honey.
    We love you.

    Janice: You were such an inspiration. Please keep coming here. I'm finding the "just for today" and "one day at a time" approach is working out for me. Don't cut yourself off from MWO. You had 42 days...you can do it again. Mary

    I do not condone your drinking, but don't beat yourself up about drinking right now. Just get through the grief and your son's 21st and when you are coping with life better, then focus on your drinking. In the mean time, just think about how much you are drinking and remember why you want to stop. You WILL get through this.

    ((((Janice)))) Even for someone brand new here like me, it is easy to see that you are loved and cared about by your friends here. As Starlight said, I can't even imagine the depth of your grief as I haven't been there yet. (dreading it) It may not be the right time to worry about your drinking. It definitely doesn't seem like a good time to walk away for one of your support systems, and I hope you don't do that.

    More (((((Janice)))))

    Oh Janice I'm so sorry about your dad.
    I lost my mum a few years ago.
    It's hard to keep focussed when something like that happens.
    You're suffering and it'll take time.

    I hope things get better for you.
