    Hi Loopy,
    You showed a lot of courage admitting your problems with AL to the shrink, and in getting help. I am on Day 9 of Campral - have you had any withdrawals? There is a Campral thread in the meds section if you'd like to join in - I mixed it up with some of my story but still I am keeping track of the effects.
    A 4 year old boy is a lot of work, and I know how stressful it can be. I have a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old girl and they require a lot but kids really need their mommy, more than their daddy (sorry dads here - no insult meant just generalizing!), even if both are working.
    Stay with us,
    Tulipe

    Loopy-

    I have the CDs but it takes kind of a lot of time so I have been waiting for the right time to start. I listened to them once though. It seems to be about breaking destructive patterns and dispelling negative thoughts. cant go wrong there! They did cost a bit though. 130 or so U.S. dollars.

    hi all

    thanks so much for all the replies and support - i have been very busy reading other threads and making sure to check in every few hours to see how everyone is doing and of course keep me focused on my goal!

    you are all right i do have a blessed hand full with my son and he is so perfect! i can't believe that i would give up two to five days a month with him getting drunk or recovering . i have a really blessed life. it occured to me on the car ride home yesterday that i would not drink when i was pregnant with him (or even trying) why in the world is having him here any different? emotional damage is just as significant as physical and that is exactly what i am doing.

    liath -

    how are you doing today? i hope you are starting to feel better and we all fall -believe me. i have known for a long time that i have a problem and made every attempt to do the right thing - suppose that is why it is called addiction. it totally sucks and a lot of times i feel cursed because as many have said our society is so pro drinking that you lgiguratively have to go into hiding! god (whatever that means for you) be with us all as we find our way.

    i will keep posting but am going to hit some other threads and see if i can offer any help!

    my lunch hour is almost up!

    loopy-

    Feeling drained today and sick of this addiction. But sober. I know what you mean about having to go into hiding. I have been doing this for years so of course all of my friends are pro drinking to the point that every social function revolves around it. I am the only one trying to change so when I try to go AF I have to seclude myself. Not exactly comforting. Thanks for asking about me! We can do this.
