This article inspired me.  I am now 2 days sober (with money to buy alcohol) and having not done so.  Other than that I have been drunk every night for at least the past 7 years.  The only other times I went to bed sober were when I had absolutely no money to buy it, and nothing to sell to get some.

This is the hardest thing that I have ever done, compared to this, my quitting smoking 25+ years ago was nothing.  I had patches then.  There is no patch for Alcholism, a disease that I have.  Meetings on past attempts and not finding a comfortable sponsor that I could trust meant that I just went back to what I know.  What I knew is that being drunk stopped my mind from thinking about anything and everything and that I could fall asleep.

I will admit that it's hard to fall asleep so I got some Melatonin that is good for sleep and that although it takes a while to fall asleep now, waking up clear headed is a better feeling.  Thank you Shawn for your letter to me.  Yes, I believe it was for me, because it hit me hard and made me really think about it.

Again, thank you Shawn.  Big hugs from Robin.
