      I first tried the MWO program three years ago or so. I was never AL free, but did cut down on the drink. I drink vodka--I'm drinking some now and it's 3 in the afternoon. I don't normally drink until after 6--at least I try. I drink nightly to the point of not remembering going to bed, not remembering what I said or did. I work at a law firm as a paralegal. I know drinking is affecting my work. I make mistakes, but mostly it's my memory of doing things such as sending letters to clients or filing something online. My relationship with my husband has not yet been affected, but I know in time it will. I wish I could count on him for support, but as of now, he doesn't think I have a problem. I am truly scared that I'm going to lose all that is important to me due to poisoning myself everyday. I don't know how to stop. The saddest thing is is that I don't want to stop. I am at the verge of losing my mind and I truly don't know what to do. They say that drinking is a choice you make--I don't think that's true when alcohol has this kind of grip on a person. Thanks for listening.

      heyme,

      I can really relate to a lot of what you said. You are here and that is what is important for now.

      About alcohol being a choice, I believe that it is fo some, but not for others.

      You said that you know you need to quit but you don't want to quit. I think that is a shared sentiment with all of us here. But you are reaching out so it seems that you know something isn't working out the way you want it. What a great step in the right direction!

      I am really glad that you are back this is such a good support system.

      Welcome back Hey. I always find it quite amazing the amount of husbands who dont think their wives have a problem. Mine didnt and I know loads of others who say the same. Many times I think it is just a fear of change for them. However, that doesnt help us much when we want all that support. You have made a big leap by coming back here. Through reading and posting things will begin to resonate with you, you will find comfort in something someone says and the strength to try something new. Just stay with us, you have done well just by writing your first post.

      I want a drink
      I want a drink

      Welcome back
      It might be a good idea to initially not think about whether you want to give up or not. If its affecting your memory and your work etc then you could try to focus on dealing with that for a start as you would if you had migraines or something like that you could decide to follow the MWO program for a month as a trial maybe trying for 30 days AF and then see how you feel. You might just find that in a couple of weeks you feel so good that you want to continue with it. As they say one day at a time.
