    Yes, youre seeing correctly…………………i’m an ALCOHOLIC & no longer am i ashamed!!!!! I was asked last night how can u live with the shame of being an Alcoholic? I have to admit at first my horns & hoofs nearly came to surface but i bit back my inital reaction………..and said……………….Look at me………………i’m a mother, wife,sister a daughter. Do i look like the type of person who would put her own sister in hospital from a beating, do i look like a woman who would be unfaithful, do i look like a woman who would neglect her children……………………………..the answer the person gave me was no way.
    I was that person , liquid in a bottle did that to me, i was a monster. I lived with the things i had done because i didnt know what else to do, it was easier to hear people saying the things i had done than admit i was sorry.
    Not anymore i took away the label of alcoholic & admitted i was beaten by drink, the word alcoholic doesnt frighten me anymore, the thought of returning to the madness does.
    Thankfully i have learnt to deal with the things i need to on a daily basis, i cant fix me today, i’m a work in progress, just like the MonaLisa 🙂 .
    So, i say what shame…………………i know my past, i’m now brave enough to want to deal with it & move on, I WANT to be a better person, not live in the Shame of a false existence.
