Do you have anything that you want to get off your chest Anonymously? Or throw out a sentence of Wisdom?



I would say, " I do not regret my life/past because it is what made me the person I am Right now."

sorry about the caps

One day at a time; and sometimes one hour, minute or second at a time.

I don't need today it anon, it was very depressing sometimes, and it sucks watching someone you love deteriorate into a shell of their former self.

I guess what I would say is, "Sometimes people have to hit rock bottom and lose everything before they truly realize the important things in life."

Being a drunk is not the same as being an alcoholic. How ignorant.


My beloved father was a "functional" alcoholic. He worked, sober, sixty hours a week to provide for us. When he was home, he would often pass out drunk on the front porch. But he was an amazing dad when he chose to be. He hid his addiction from us as best he could and when he was present, he was present. He died of liver disease when I was little. I am so grateful to have so many happy memories to share with my children about their grandpa. My father was an addict and he made a lot of mistakes, but I am and will always be a daddy's girl. Miss him so much.

I'm still working through the anger and hurt of my dad choosing alcohol over his family .. even in death. I have no words of wisdom, just that some things in life .. I will never understand.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

I remove all alcoholics from my life as quickly as I find them.   I don't accept it from friends, and certainly never would accept it from my husband.  He grew up with an alcoholic mother so he feels as I do.

Occasional binge drinking IS alcoholism, it just looks different.
