    My rock bottom might not seem bad to some, but it was during my last detox and realizing I could never be able to control my drinking if I kept drinking.

    I would also like to help you mauri by changing your little saying,

    If at first you don't succeed, take daily action until you do....there is no such thing as trying to be sober.
    Have a great day and remember you can make it happen by taking action today!

    StarN;1152093 wrote: My rock bottom was when I thought I was going to die. I had bad stomach pain and I thought it had to be from my drinking. I hid the pain for weeks. I couldn't hold it back anymore. It was a day from hell. We had 6 or 7 men in our house redoing all of our floors (new carpet and hardwoods). All but one was Hispanic. I only say that because I had to find the foreman to tell the ones in front of the bathroom door to get away from it so I could go in and throw up.

    My hands started tingleing after throwing up several times during that day. I thought I was having a heart attack. My sister had to come and take me to the ER because my husband couldn't leave the men in our home alone. He did come once they left.

    Several ER visits later, test etc I found out that I has Gastroparesis. (Slow to empty stomach). It is caused when I eat things high in fiber and/or greasy they stay so long in my stomach that I get bezors. The way bezors were explained to me is like a hair ball in a cat. Anyway I do not know how I got this. Most people that have this have diabetes or have had sometype of surgery and have scar tissue. Neither is the case for me. Drinking may have been the cause, I don't know, but it scared me enough to make me rethink my drinking.

    After having lots of going back and forth from drinking to not drinking before this, I finally quit.

    It's almost 2 years now and I can't see me going back to drinking. My sweet dog died almost a year ago and it didn't even make me want to drink. Yet I know, I am one drink away from starting all over again so I pray I never do.
    WOW, I LOVE that line! Thanks for the reminder

    I just woke up one morning and could not think of a single thing that I wanted to do, not a person that I wanted to see, no place that I wanted to go nor any experience that I wanted to have. Nothing. Empty.
    I could have written this myself.. and i am tired of feeling that way so very very tired. I want my life back

    What was your rock bottom

    I have had a few rock bottoms but the most devastating was my daughter witnessing my stupor. I don't remember it but she mentioned it in her own way. Deeply regretful I vow to not drink again. I do not want to be known as a drunk mom. So ashamed.

  5. Thanks open halo thanked for this post

    Many rock bottoms

    I have hit many rock bottoms, 1 dui 10 years ago, landing in the emergency room with
    colon hemmorage 3 years ago. Fainting from dehydration and exshustion from drinking one year ago. And crashing my car into a parking sign and fence three days ago. I have tried everything but am now day 3 AF and reading the Vale book. The time is now, I am stopping.
    I have two small children and a very loving but embarrased husband. We have also told my Inlaws, I feel the more that know, the more I have to prove I can do this and have their support.

    What was your rock bottom

    hey there boots, i hope your still fighting the good fight!
    I told/tell all kinds of poeple that i used to drink way to much so now i dont, some people who thought they knew me were suprised. I think it adds extra pressure on me to stay dry, there are people all over the place waiting to see me drink, i aint gunna let them though!
    my rock bottm was when my 9 month old baby boy was sitting on my lap at the computer tabe. I took a swig of beer, so he took a swig of his bottle, he slamed it down on the table and sighed just like daddy did when he had finished it. I then realized this was yet another generation(5th in a row i think) that may end up a drunk and it was /is up to me to give him a chance.

    two years on and his little sister has never seem me drink.

    What was your rock bottom

    I have had a few rock bottoms, myself. Including a couple suicide attempts with pills that I don't remember taking since I was blacked out. BUT I don't want my kids early memories to be something I did while drunk. My oldest is 4 and she is developing memories. I couldn't handle it if she brought anything up from this time.

    What was your rock bottom

    After bankruptcy, job layoffs and zero motivation to find a new one, strip tease karaoke act at a neighborhood party, passing out at my 6 year olds birthday party - which was really all of our friends with kids so we could drink, getting hit by a car as a pedestrian and having to explain to police and hospital why I was so drunk at a 40 year old's bachelorette party, missing reading to my son's class on his birthday because at noon I was tipsy and had my husband go did not hit the bottom.

    After a raging afternoon of wine - I woke up and said enough. I will never quit on my own. I will never drink again. Went to rehab and got very drunk on the plane to rehab...fell onto the luggage carousel at the airport...stumbled into a taxi...stopped at a liquor store on the way to the hotel....drank some more...woke up the next day and thanked GOD for protecting me from myself and for my life. Rode to rehab in a random cab with a driver who was a recovering alcoholic and I knew God was sending me to the right place.

    I will never drink again....but I will never take it for granted that I could.
