Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I had been to counselors, many people had tried talking to me, pastors had prayed for me, my parents and husband had threatened me, I had beaten myself up, but I hadn't been locked up...yet, I have learned there are always yets in life. I wasn't going to stop drinking until I WANTED to. I had to get to MY bottom, whatever it may be, physical, emotional, spiritual. It had to be my bottom. It's interesting to listen to people in the meetings to hear the different "bottoms" people hit. Some people lost everything but their job. They lost their family, got divorced, got DUI's but still had their job, and that was their bottom. Some people it was a spiritual bottom, they just drank a lot, didn't lose anything material, but were spiritually bankrupt. But this quote can be taken another way if you are not an alcocholic too. If you are trying to change anything, lose weight, your attitude, anything. NO ONE else can make you do it, only you. You have to want to do it. You will have support there when you make the decision to do it, and find people to hold you accountable if you want to stay that way. To make any change yagottawanna. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
