I have a friend that was talking about going back out awhile ago. It upset me, I understand that until someone has truly admitted that they're an alcoholic -even then sometimes- there is a chance that they may go back out. But still, I hate, it breaks my heart and the results are almost always devastating. I found an email I wrote her, I didn't send it cause it seemed really harsh at the time. She's still sober today, so I guess I'm glad I didn't.
Me to! Screw it, sobriety is for the birds! I was a way better Mom when I was driving my kids around town drunk, lying about my drinking and being a selfish self centered ass. Let's do it. I'll pick you up at 5. Xo, Em
It's sorta funny now, but not really. I never want to go back to there. It was horrible. My life is far from perfect today, but I am a good person and a good Mom...which I think might actually be all that really matters. Getting sober was really hard. I can joke about it now, but there's really nothing funny about the thought of ever having to do it again.
