Default Taking my life back

I quit drinking for 8 years....it was not the BEST 8 years of my life as advertised...but I believe it kept me alive...till now anyway.

My sister died in Sept of drugs and alcohol...by accident...just one time too much.

Seems like everytime I drink I do it a little too much...luckily I am not hugely addicted to drugs...and only use my benzo when I wake up in the middle of the night shaking and sweating.

I saw my b/f with another girl on Friday in his house..and she was sitting on his bed...Thankfully, they were both dressed.

Then I went into another spiral after being sober for 10 months again. That is somewhat of a lie...when my sister and I had a fight 3 days before she died....I drank when she left here....after 10 months...the anxiety was overpowering to me.

Then she died....I drank again..I'm a binge drinker...then I got good...a couple weeks....Then I wanted to drink again...then I stopped and last Friday saw my boyfriend with another girl and just have been struggling.

Also my Dad has dementia and a big part of my world I spend at least 2 hours a day with him and it is overwhemling and I don't want to do it...but its good for him and for me.

Anyway...Today I am starting the fight...I set myself up with clean sheets....raimen noodles, gatorade, an italian grinder that can be heated and I also ate an egg...the first thing I ate in 4 days...

Food matters..if you want to get sober..food matters.
And so does the "recovery" kit. (Ramen, Gatorade, Eggs, bread, jello)
Wish me luck

Thank you..it feels good to be heard.

and now I lay me down to sleep and pray the Lord my soul to keep.

And when I keep this soul..I will do the best I can
