Broken Promises

Do you make plans time and time again with the best of intentions? "I am going to get up early, make a pot of coffee and hit the ground running" Then after a night of drinking blow them all off and find yourself sleeping in, not doing what you promised yourself you would? Well, I did that all the time when I was drinking and blamed it on everything else besides my drinking...I deserve to sleep in, it's Monday or Sunday or Friday, I am depressed, I will do it tomorrow, but tomorrow never came. I was constantly disappointed in myself. You know how I know it was my drinking? Because I don't do it anymore. Now when I tell myself I am going to do something as long as it is in God's plan for me it gets done.

If you ended up on my website reading this post it may be for a reason. If you're not sure if you're an alcoholic try not drinking for 30 days. If you can do that happily with no help maybe you aren't an alcoholic, But if you can't maybe you are. And if you can and your life gets better in that 30 days why would you ever drink again, so maybe you are.

Here's the deal...The only person that can decide you're an alcoholic is you. Kinda powerful don't you think.


  1. Wow! My son sent me an email telling me i have crossed the line...He is 18, my daughter is 15. They are both so dissapointed in me. I am no role model. That's for sure. Who did you go to for help?

  2. {BIG HUG}Asking for help is the first step...
    e-mail me at and I will tell you how I did it! God Bless, Emily
