      This topic came up in a couple places today.

      If you've joined a quit-drinking website, you're probably near enough to a bottom to just get this done. There's nothing better to wait for.

      My rock bottom was 2 days ago.....just gave in, cried my eyes out and asked for help.
      It wasn't a rock bottom of a particular event....just a feeling of 'I just can't do this any more....please help me.' I felt desperate and alone.
      Strangely enough, now I don't. I rang for help from a counsellor today....I feel excited that this is the change I needed.
      My daughters were the only ones that knew but now I have told my mum and sisters and they have been great. I feel hope.

      My rock bottom was being afraid to leave work because I KNEW I'd open the bottle of wine as soon as I got in the door.
      Being a drunk is so unseemly for a woman of a certain age - and I HATED it.
      The lies, the bags of bottles, the excuses for not having visitors or going out after a certain time.

      Funnily enough - once I had decided to quit it was then Mr S found empties I'd been too lazy to get rid of - or had forgotten about.
      Then when I was 4 months sober I planned a return to drink on a trip to Australia. The family decided to pick that time to confront me - so a perfect storm really.
      The game was up - so I gave in - almost grateful that I had been outed.
      I just did not want to be that sad person any more.

      My rock bottom was in July 2008. I was so desperate I wanted to die. Could not go to work as I think i had al poisoning but still drank on top of that. Was so depressed and had been for what seemed like months. I was willing myself to die as I was too scared to do anything myself.

      That fear lasted 6 years then I let it go and started off again. I did not hit anywhere near that this time. Just the realisation that I was once again risking killing myself and spending my days and nights drinking or thinking about it and popping pills.
