    Hello - Just wanted to 'pick you up' here and let you I know that I heard your sadness....

    First you need to get and stay sober. The very first thing. Day by day, for you so you become who you really are. That's like cleaning all the seadweed off seaside rocks. Then anyone near you wont keep slipping off.

    Have you got the book off here? Can you get the supps and meds?

    If not, take tons and tons of vitamin B and vit C. Drink gallons of water. Sweeten your coffee or tea a bit more/some. Eat chocoloate... Keep very busy around trigger times. And keep coming here to read, read, read and post, post, post.

    Just DO NOT have that first drink - then you can't get drunk and have all the rest. OK?

    After a few days and the alcohol is out of your system you will fee a whole heap clearer. (Just keep going days 3-4...whatever. They're just the hardest - but we've done them so so can you.)

    Then, being here you've got lots of friends to help you 24/7....please use us!

    I wish you so well Echome. I hope your wife comes home - but do this please?

    Love FMF x

    Hi ECHOME and welcome.

    Like FMF has said, you need to tackle your alcohol problem before you can sort out your life. We`ve all been there........much of our problems in life have resulted from excessive drinking, and while the drinking persists, so too do many of the problems.

    You`ve just had an horrific experience.......huge confrontation with your wife, then being locked up, and now not knowing where your wife is.........look on this incident as the wake up call you have been sorely needing to give you the courage to address your drinking.

    Sounds like you`re in a great deal of emotional pain........the only way to ease that any is to look at yourself and your drinking critically.Only when you decide to quit your drinking, will you help your relationship with your wife.......drink destroys all that we hold dear if we`re fool enough to let it.......don`t allow the drink to claim your marriage.

    And no, it`s not easy to quit drinking, but so many of us have quit by making a wholehearted commitment to ourselves and as a direct result of the wonderful support we have found here. You can stop drinking too.........we`re here to help you.......

    Wishing you love and strength,

    Starlight Impress x

    Thank you. I cant believe Iam finding help and understanding on the internet. Iam so lost I had no were to turn. It means so much to me that you would take time to help. I have no one to talk to. My friends think am weak my family yells at me becouse they think it is my wifes problem. Nobody understands what is going on. Iam a total wreck I cry all day I miss my wife and little girl. The pain is unbelievable and there is no pill or anything that can help. ECHOME

    Echome,

    Wow, I can only imagine how badly you are feeling right now.

    All of us here will be available to help if you decide to get sober. Since this is a truly a world wide site, there will always be someone here to listen to you and give any advice we can. Lots of people have become AF here and know how hard it is.

    Many have hurt family relationships and loved ones because of their drinking. You are not alone.

    Figure out what the next positive steps are that you can make, and start going down that path.

    Take care,
    Cindi

    FINDING MY FEET
    Yes I got the book and cds. I take pretty good care of myself the best thing is the gym and eating right. Unfortunatly I started to drink heavy again stoped going to the gym and things started to build I could feel it. My temper was short I was tired all the time and instead of working on myself I tried to change my wife. This is the begining of my abusive cycle. We missed counsling for the whole month. Now iam starting to blame my wife for everything. Now Iam charged with felony domestic violence. I hit her with my head I was not trying to hurt her just push her away.........I hurt my wife someone I love with all my heart I would do anything for her. I take full responsability I have no one to blame but myself. Ive never laid a hand or physicaly hurt my wife ever this is the most painfull thing I have ever done. I can never drink again. I want to change my life and find out who Iam. I hope Iam not to late to save my family.ECHOME

    Hi Echome - glad you found this place.
    I understand that you are in a lot of pain right now and it is hard to know what to do first.
    But what you will probably hear here is that you need to concentrate on yourself first and put your wellbeing at the top of your list.
    You will see things better if you can stop drinking - like fmf said, do whatever you can to get 3 days sober or alcohol free as we say here.

    3 days can seem long - so come here and read and post lots.
    Drinking will not bring your family back or even make it hurt less (makes it worse actually).
    You have to take care of yourself first - you have to stop drinking for yourself first.
    If you quit for someone else - even your child or wife- it won't stick. That is my experience anyway. You are worth taking care of - you are worth caring for.
    Hope you find the support you need here. This is a great place.

    Thank you lisa. Lots of confusion in my head. How did this start? Why do I drink tell I black out? How could I hurt someone I love so much? How come I did not see that I had a problem? Nobody told me HUH? Iam sitting in jail thinking its the drinking now iam really in trouble I finally see I have a drinking problem and all I want to do is cry. UH not in jail are you kidding! When I got home the flood gates opened I have not stoped crying. I know I have to stop for myself. Nobody has ever told me I need to stop drinking. Maybe that is a good thing i found out on my own. Iam I an alchoholic? Or is that a label people put on you? I dont know what it means. I have a drinking problem and I can never drink again. ECHOME
