    This may sound really stupid, but I figured I would ask since I can’t seem to get the thoughts out of my head.

    After being Stone Cold sober now for 8 days and FREE from BEER and XANAX, I’m starting to feel old memories from the past in a very different way. I’m guessing the Alcohol had just masked the feelings for many years and was wondering if this is normal?

    An example is I lost my mother 5 years ago to MS and Cancer. She was 52 when she passed in my arms. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I know I was drunk 24×7 for the next 2 weeks minimum. I remember blaming the world for allowing someone so young and so good to be taken from me when I needed her the most. She was always there for me and the kids and now I have no family to speak of. No Father, Mother, Grand Parents, Aunts, Uncles of any kind.

    No one to really lean on for help or advise that I can trust, except for you guys.

    I started having this happen last night about remembering the whole thing again and some memories of what all happened when she died. Certain memories were coming back that seemed to be a little different than I remember.

    Again, is this normal? Never really had this happen before.
