Wow, be strong!! You are doing the right thing from where I stand, NOT an easy thing, and NOT a cut-and-dry thing either.

You are NOT hurting him; do not let guilt enter the picture! You do not owe him the right to violate reasonable living agreements, and you are entitled to much more than what you have received so far in terms of change on his part. Try to let emotions only play a healing role for you and not deciding to go back on what you say; you know the best thing!! You are doing it!! I hope you are able to feel good about that.

Just know (I hope you do) that what you are doing is the best thing anyone can do to help him in the truest sense of the word. It gets so confusing sometimes to draw the line between helping and enabling, because it shouldn't have to be your role to "father" him but truly that is part of what he needs that you must account for.

I feel for you!! You have NO IDEA how much! SO PROUD of you, wish I could give you a great big hug and say congratulations! I wish I had a bunch of money to give you! but more than anything I just want to offer my support and best wishes to you, which luckily this blog allows me to do that much. :) I am happy to hear that you are strong, as sad as it is that at this time he is not. But he may come around and either way, you can be okay! Things will get better. Thanks for your comment on my blog! appreciate it.

live life to the fullest with you and your babies! you're a great woman truly.

Having had to alcoholic grandfathers, I've seen the damage that alcoholics can have on a family. You're doing the right thing. It won't be easy, and it may get worse, but this is the best thing you can do for your kids. You are doing the right thing though. Good for you. Your Children, and your grandchildren will thank you.

double wow. I so admire your bravery. I can only imagine how terribly difficult this was for you. I hope all the best for you.

you rock. You know I'll do whatever I can to make this easier for you. Just say the word.

Be Strong in this. DO. NOT. CAVE.

You know what's coming now...the "oh woe is me" routine. damn straight "oh woe is you".

And for J- Get help now before your children see you in a box. Drop these losers you call friends. Get involved in a recovery group...not a "support" group. It won't be easy...it's not supposed to be.

You know what you really need? Once you are in a recovery group...go to a Church, talk to the pastor and tell him your plight. Don't worry about your language, he's heard worse. Don't worry about what he thinks about you...that's not why you are there. Tell him you need accountability and right the hell now. Tell him you need a Godly Influence in your life.

You have a hole in your life that you try to fill with booze. That hole isn't in the shape of a bottle brother...it's a God Shaped Hole. Until you fully realize that and fill the hole you are going to struggle, fail, beat yourself up about it, and go back to the bottle. It's not too late.

A thief was once condemned to die for his crimes. He was led to his place of execution and found himself hanging beside Jesus. The thief recognized him as God's Sacrifice for him and was saved. That's the thief's story...now it's your turn. It doesn't matter what you've done. God knew you were gonna do those things before you dreamed them up. Tell him you know you've screwed up and that only He can help you. Fall on him J. You are NEVER beyond His grasp.

Your Big Sister said...

When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call me on the phone
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a sister

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call for me out loud
Soon you'll hear me knocking at your door

You just call me on the phone
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there

Ain't it good to know that you've got a sister
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don't you let them

You just call me on the phone
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a sister

Now THAT is called "testicular fortitude". In addition to alcoholism, he suffers from CRD (Cranio-Rectal Disorder).

The only known cure for CRD is cold, hard reality, not shaken, not stirred.

I commend you on being brave enough to take this step. It won't be an easy road, but at least you've got the car up and running.

I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and hoping for the best.

l'ultimo avvertimento ( http://domenico-schietti.blogspot.com ) [Martedi 5 Dicembre 2006 ore 11:50:49]

Tutti i dirigenti di centri di ricerca per l'energia alternativa, media, partiti, governi, aziende e organizzazioni umanitarie, religiose o ecologiste che entro una settimana non daranno grande risalto al Motore di Schietti ed alla Serpentina saranno denunciati e verranno considerati colpevoli di 20 mila morti al giorno per i ritardi di produzione del Motore e della Serpentina di Schietti

Attenzione, nel caso entro una settimana non sarà rispettato l'ultimo avvertimento dai nemici dell'umanità,

agli avvocati che faranno causa sarà dato un premio speciale da parte dei popoli di 100 milioni di euro a testa,

sarà dedicata una via in tutte le città del mondo

ed in tutti i libri di storia si parlerà della causa che il pool di avvocati sostenne contro i nemici dell'umanità
