    Rock bottom....

    On Sunday night I went out and had a few glasses of wine, followed by a few more. Then went out with a friend to another pub, then another bar and then another. Eventually once I had dropped her off (under the influence), I then carried on driving and went looking for a man I had met just a week ago. Eventually I got so tired, stopped the car (do not even remember where) and passed out. The cops woke me up and drove me home. I am most grateful to them and the fact they were cops and not someone else.... I also lost my brand new cell phone !!!! I got home all emotional and woke up late for work. I did phone through and tell the truth which felt good.
    I am now taking the steps to seek help and couselling and found this site which will hopefully help me to become sober and not touch another drop of alcohol !
    It will be good to have your support and comfort...Many thanks

    Eagle - you are SO lucky the cops didn't arrest you!! (I think they can even if you're not driving... "public intoxication"?)

    Also lucky that you didn't hurt yourself or others. And that your work place is understanding!

    I assume you called your cell phone. If found by a nice person (they're out there!), you might get it back. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks twinsmommy - I am actually in SA where cops seem to be more lenient but boy do I not want to do that again - EVER ! There have been other incidences too like falling off a chair and hitting my head leaving me out cold !!!! So these signs are iminent that I need to do something. I will be seeing someone on Friday who will assist me and hopefully direct me back on my true path of healing, clarity, love for myself and courage... Thank you for your support and I am certainly going to stay with you all. This site has given me sooo much already and I have only been on it for a day. It feels good to speak the entire truth.

    Welcome Eagle - this is a great place with loads of support!!

    I'm also in SA & damn you were lucky!! - I really would not like to kip in a car here ( even if it was outside my own house! lol.) Stay determined and strong - come here to talk often. It's not just about stopping drinking sometimes, it's about what it's covering up. It can be a slow process so be gentle with yourself...............but none of that 'poor me' BS, it won't help you in the long run. Glad your getting yourself a counsellor - more tools in your belt the better!

    Stay close.

    Take care

    Welcome Eagle Spirit from a fellow SAfrican!
    Good on you for taking this wake up call by the short and curly's and doing something about it.
    I always suggest to newbies to begin by reading the book My Way Out. It is short, easy to read and explains the program in detail.
    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions;-)

    Hi Eagle Spirit

    Eagle Spirit. I agree with CHOPPER - that was YOUR moment, your wake up call, so welcome again. You'll get a lot of support from the MWO forums, read and post often and you'll soon get the hang of it. And, above all else, be forever grateful that somebody, somewhere was looking out for you on sunday night !
