    I’ve posted a few times here and all along was still nursing my addictions, coke and alcohol. I’ve promised my wife so many times that I’d quit, go to meetings, get treatment but I never really fulfilled that promise.

    Well, now is the time. I’m going to CA meetings 2-3 times a week, giving up even a little alcohol, and detoxing myself off the tramadol I like so much but which turns me into a real SOB.

    Any advise or encouragement would be greatly appreciated. I want to be able to post my successes, 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, etc. and keep it going forever. I’ve let my ego run things instead of my brain and heart and I’ve got to make this change and make it stick. For the long run not the short term.

    My actions have caused some serious damage to my relationship with my wife and I want to start repairing as much of that as I can. I long for the day she can trust me again and be proud of me instead of being ashamed.

    I’m not a 12 step believer but any step or steps are better than nothing at all. Monday I’ll share my story with the folks at the meeting and take that first step.

    Guess it’s just been hard to admit to myself.
